    Not yet. Had to get a cord for it off ebay. Should be here in a day or so. I'll try that when it gets here. Thanks

    My PS3 Controller will light up as well, but will no longer sync up with the PS3 either. I have performed the basics, connecting up with the usb cable, connecting to ps3 turning on sys. and then pressing the button as well as resetting the PS3 controller, but still same issue. It seems to be an issue with the wireless properties on the controller.

    Have you tried plugging it into the usb port for a couple hours while the PS3 was on?

When you get the cord hook up the controller to the PS3, power on the PS3, wait till it boots up, then hit the PS button on the controller and it should sync up.

Wireless controller problem


Its not a memory stick! its a radio reciever that you need with the controller.

The remote bundled along has a seperate one.

Just make sure the switch on the dongle is set to PS and not PC (as can be used on a pc aswell)

Setting up a 360 wireless controller


Turn Your Console and Controller On The Xbox® Guide button in the center of your controller puts the Xbox 360® experience at your fingertips. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn your console on.
To turn on your console only, press the power button on your console. To turn on your controller only, press the Start button on your controller.
Once on, pressing the Xbox Guide button gives you immediate access to the Xbox Guide. To turn off your console, press and hold the Xbox Guide button for three seconds and then confirm your selection.
Turn Your Console and Controller Off To turn your console and controller off, press and hold the Xbox Guide button on your controller for three seconds. Then select whether you want to turn off just your controller or both your controller and your console. (Selecting the console will turn off both the console and all connected controllers.)
To turn off one controller when multiple wireless controllers are connected, press and hold for three seconds the Xbox Guide button of the controller you want to turn off, then select Turn Off Controller.
To turn off your console only, press the power button on your console
When you connect a controller to your console, it is assigned a specific quadrant, which glows green to indicate the controller's number and position. Each subsequent controller connected to the console (up to four) is assigned an additional quadrant.
If system problems should arise, the Ring of Light on the console will flash combinations of red.

I hope this solved your problem.
Happy Gaming!

No control controllers


Check to see if it will read a memory card. You probably have a bad Controller port. You can order one from Ebay, then install it if you have the original PS2. If you have the slim, you may need a new motherboard.
