SOURCE: 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.

Gioteck vx1 wireless controller will not pair up to my ps3

This works: Turn ps3 on. Plug the controller into the usb cable and into ps3. Then plug the dongle into other usb port. After a short time the dongle will flash quickly (this means it's in pairing mode - when the dongle flashes slowly it's too late). Press the PS/Home button as soon as you see the dongle fast flashing. All the LED's on the controller will begin to flash and after a short time one (or two) will remain solid. Immediately disconnect the charging usb lead from the controller and again the LED's will flash, push the PS/Home button again and after a short time one or two will remain solid. The controller should now be working. If the controller fails to respond repeat this process but make sure that you disconnect the dongle and reinsert (so you can see the fast flashing lights and try again).

My controler for my ps3 is not working

Unless the controller hardware has failed, I'd surmise it has somehow lost its wireless pairing (setup of identification and link with the base unit). Connect the controller to the base unit with a USB cable and turn the base unit on. The pairing will be done automatically. Next, give the controller an ID number between 1 and 7.
Once that is done, you should be able to disconnect the USB cable and use the controller normally. (You do not have to turn off power to disconnect a USB cable.) If the Playstation base does not recognize the controller when it is plugged in with the USB cable, the controller has a bad part inside.
If the controller works normally when plugged in, but not in wireless mode, there is a problem with the wireless operation. This could be either failure in the controller or base unit, or interference from some other device nearby. For example, a furnace igniter emits RF energy over a wide range of frequencies; if the controller works only when the furnace igniter is not running (you can hear the sparks on an AM radio while it runs), then the furnace ignition circuit is the real culprit, and you should check its ground wiring.

This usually means that your ps3 controller is no longer paired to your ps3, to re-pair them attach the controller to the ps3 using the usb cable, then press the ps button again when the ps3 is on.

How do i pair my ps3 controller to a new console.

To pair your controller back with your PS3, just connect it with a USB cable and press the PS button. Just like you did when you first got your PS3.

I have a battery operated controller and can not pair it to ps3 please help the controller came with the ps3 as well as standard one thank you

To sync a controller you need to plug it into the usb cable that comes with the playstation itself. If you've lost the cable you will need to buy a new one unless you can find a similar cable.
This allows the controller to be used on multiple playstations, to synchronise a controller to a certain playstation, the usb cable is vital!
Hope this helps.
