Plug it in with a USB cable and then press the PS button on the remote.

    Any USB cable will work. However, if you don't have access to any cables, there is a small hole near L2 that is used as a reset. You can try pressing that to see if it will then pair.

  • treegoat Apr 05, 2011

    If after pressing the reset button and trying to re-pair it with the PS button the controller still will not connect, you might be out of luck, unfortunately. About the only thing you can do is ask around to see if you can find anyone with a spare mini USB cable, or going to a small electronics store and picking up a cheap one (and perhaps returning it afterwards, though you can never have too many USB cables).

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help. It sucks that they didn't have a "pair" button ON the console like the 360.

My Ps3 Remote Is Acting Weird It Is Selecting Buttons That I Am Not Pressing Please Help !!!

If no other controllers or remotes linked to the PS3 are on at the moment then this sounds like an internal hardware issue with the PS3 remote. Has anything been spilled in it? Has it been dropped? It can happen with excessive use as well, but it sounds like it needs to be replaced unless you are comfortable working with the internal parts.

Ps3 controller charging failed

ok, either your charger for the ps3 is broken...or,it cant read(know)the cord is there. you may have dust or something clogged up. i know cause it happend to my ps2...i blew into the slot where the controller goes ( although u need to blow into the charger where u plug it in. if it doesent work... then u may need to either try a different usb plug or controller and see how it goes...OR take the controller and charger to a friends house if they have a ps3 and see if it works on theirs..if it vworks on theirs...then the thing where u plug the charger in at on the ps3 is probably broken or clogged up with dust
