Ps3 controller problems?


My ps3 controler wasn’t used for months now that i have tried to turn it on it doesnt work. It doesnt flash at all.

I connected a charger to controler and USB to the ps3, i pressed the Ps Button and then 4 lights all flash with a second of interval between them but doesnt connect with the console. When i remove the wire the controller turns off and doesnt function after that. P.S the charger is not the one which come with the ps3 package.

Is the any solution?

  1. The ps3 controller should have a tiny little circular button on the backside of it. You’ll have to press it with a pin or something pointy. It’s a reset button. Once you press that, your controller will turn off. Now try the ps button, it should connect.Try letting it charge for a while.

    I don’t think the charger matters, as long as it charges it. Let it charge for a few hours.

  2. how long did you let ot charge? if its been unused for months it should charge for 3 to 4 hours before you try using it and if after a full charge it won’t hold the charge or won’t sync the battery might be unable to hold a chanrge anymore and your controller could be dead and need replacing

    if it hoods a charge but won’t sync the cable may be damaged or you may need to restore your ps3 settings ( system settings menu , don’t accidentally choose restore ps3 system from the options as that will format your hdd and delete everything ) or the controller could just be broken and need to be replaced
