Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System

1 Answer

Wont turn off after loosing connection to controller

Im watching a couple of dvd's and suddenly the controller stops to function even if its connected to the ps3 via usb. When i push the ps button on the controller it just blinks. Just bought a new dualshock controller and the same happens to it. When i try to shut down the ps3, the green power lamp just blinks and doing nothing else while the blue lamp is on. Then I'll have to use the switch on the back of the ps3 to restart it. Has this something to do with the last 2 or 3 updates, before that I didn't have a problem?

I bought my ps3 in london and now im in Paris the ps3 turns on but wont turn off and it doesn't show up on the screen and the controller keeps on beeping none stop


Easy to solve, the way to turn off the ps3 is simply hold the power button until you hear one beep, then let go. That way you wont have to go to the menu, and your controller beeps because it is low on battery try using a charger that connects to the ps3

Wireless controller stopped working even with usb cable connected


Happened to me too. There's a small reset button on the back of the controller, you'll need a biro or paperclip in order to push it.

Psyclone essentials ps3 wirless remote controller wont connect


just fixed mine. i went to psclones web site ...it doesn't even have the PS3 remote listed a s a product!! however by reading the PS2 manual i figured that if I basically adapted the instructions it might help...I moved the remote to the 3rd slot.. turned off controller switch... held connect button on reciever... turned on controller.... held connect button....held select button ......held down left analogue stick....in no particular order...going back and forth until i noticed the lights had started to go steady... kept holding (30 secs+) Saw a single steady red on 3rd slot...It stayed...Yeh ;O (no clue what was the deciding factor...but theres hope!!) Lesson learned..next time i pay the full price for the Sony remote... Hope this helps
