PS3 controllers wont sync

3 Replies 3,911 Views Created 11-03-2012

hey i have a problem with my controllers.  One time i went to go play ps3 and tapped the home button on the controller to boot it up like usual.  All 4 of the controllers lights were flashing and the ps3 never turned on.  This happens to me time to time and i usually just plug it in to the ps3 via usb to re sync.  I did that a couple times and that didnt even work.  Finally i got it to work plugged in, and the #1 light was flashing indicating first player and it was charging.  Whenever i unplug it to play wireless, the 4 flashing lights come up again for a few seconds and then it stops.  Any suggestions?  thanks

Glad your sorted. Once you reset them you need to pair them back to your system with the usb cable i believe.
