It sounds like the wireless antenna inside your PS3 is defective. Assuming you are on warranty, they should easily replace that part OR the entire system at an approved service center. Please let me know if this helps.

Good luck and take care,

My x box 360 had the red ring of death, but after a few days cleared itself, but now the wireless controllers will not sync with the unit. They both just blink green lights. i bought a usb cable to plug...

Just to make sure your doing to resync right, first press the button on the console then on the controller so the light on the console is rolling and then on the controller.

there is not much that we can do, unless you get the 3 lights back again that would help us a little to know what fault it detects. now the wireless controller board can be replaced, but since the USB is not working either that would not fix the problem.

it looks like there is something wrong with the mainboard of the xbox, and I won't know more until you get the 3 red lights again and we read the error code from the unit.

to read the error code when you have 3 red lights flashing. Hold down the consoles controller sync button and then press on the eject button, the flashing lights will change, note how many lights do you see, write it down or something, and then press the buttons again, now again the lights change, note how many and do it 2 more times, and you should be back to the 3 lights, tell me what error code it gave you.

now a example of a error code = 4 lights, 4 lights, 2 lights, 4 lights. That would be 0020
(4lights = 0, 3 lights = 3, 2 lights = 2, 1 light = 1)

Only 2 of the 4 buzz controllers work on the ps3

1. Hold the power switch on the 4 controllers till the blue light at the bottom of the controller stays on.
2. Once all the blue lights are on the controllers, hold in the button on the USB stick till it blinks.
3. Tap the button on the side of the USB stick and all 4 controllers will sync with the system.

Playstation 2 wireless controller

Check if there is a sync button on both the controller and receiver. If so, push the both so they sync and recognize each other. The order that you do it is unknown. It is different for a lot of products. So mess with it for at least 20 minutes
