    try to reset the controlers by pressing the reset button at the bottom of the controller then plug the usb cable in the PS3 while pressing the ps button. This will re-sync the controllers.

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.

Problem with ps3 controller


Try hard resetting it by doing this:

Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
