Maximum power that can be supplied to usb devices.....

[ Edited ]
46 Replies 68,703 Views edited 17-02-2010

Hi,

 

Past few days, there has been a message flashing in the top right hand corner of my screen when I'm on my PS3.

It reads:"The maximum amount of power that can be supplied to the usb devices has been reached. Please remove at least one device."

 

Now this would be a good thing... If it did that WHEN i have my headset or controller charging- it could tell me when its finished charging. However, even when I have nothing in the usb ports it does it. Sometimes i cant even charge my controller properly and this causes the controller to disconnect mid-game, and I die. ALOT.

 

I tried going through the settings to find a way to turn it off, but no luck =( HELP ME PLEASE

This is really, realy, really, really, really, really, really ANNOYING! Makes you want to buy an Xbox. And we all know, nobody in their right mind would do that!

It is possible that wireless devices can interfere with one another although it is unusual that it should cause the error message relating to the PS3 USB ports. However as long as it works thats the main thing.

 

Generally this message would appear with third party devices (not designed for the console) so it would be best not to use these if the error persists.

 

If theres any further issues let me know,

I assume you only get the message when the controller is connected to the PS3 via the charging cable?

If so, just replace the charging cable and it should start working.

so i recently found out that if i turn on the ps3 with the cable already conencted to the controller, it charges, but once i move the controller (pick it up, push it, replace it etc) it gives me the message and it doesnt charge until i turn off and turn the ps3 back on. What is happening here? (again it has nothing to do with wireless devices, nor the cable since it does start charging)

I have the same problem, only way I can recharge my controller is to turn my ps3 off, an when I turn it on make sure that USB is plugged into the controller. Think it only happen because I recently brought turtle beaches and the transmitter has to plugged in via USB, even when my transmitter is unplugged and only the controller is connected I still get the message. Only when I turn ps3 off and on will it work.

Do you have a spare USB to mini USB cable at all you could try (from a camera for instance).
