Re: PS3 controller won't charge

I just had the same problem. I fixed it by getting the USB cord that came with my Blutooth mic.

Re: PS3 controller won't charge

There are many facters for a problems with recharging your controller.

1. the usb port may be less then 2.0

2.the controller may have been faulty.

3. battery may have been ruind by heat or cold during its time at the shops.

4. you have dropt or mistreated it and a wire or and the battery has disconnected.

 

if you purchased it and as soon as you got home and tryd to reacharge it it may because of  some of the resons above. your best bet would be to return it and if they do not take it back try opening it up an checking for loose wires if you dont see any loose wires try replacing the battery.

Re: PS3 controller won't charge

I've had my PS3 for just over a year now and the controller charged fine.

 

Yesterday i was playin but had to do something quick so i left, came back, but didnt notice that is was on low battery. When i finally realised this moring i put it on charge. But instead of a battery with bars in it, it came up with a -. Now when im playin every 15 secs or so it comes up with "Please reconnect controller 1" i've tried charging on pc/laptop: still will not work. And personally i don't want to buy a £35-£40 controller and i dont want to have to buy an unofficial 1 or one from hong kong on ebay1

 

Is it just the fact the controllers a year old or is it something else?

 

Thanks.

Re: PS3 controller won't charge

Hi
Have you tried resetting the controller via the small pin hole on the back ? Stick a paperclip or similar in there to completely reset the controller and then try connecting it up via usb cable to the PS3. I have never had these issues but I always use a Pelican stand charger to charge my DS3's...

Good luck
