PS3 controller (X triangle circle etc won't work)

16 Replies 5,350 Views Created 29-06-2012

Hi guys my PS3 controller's square triangle x and circle buttons don't work. But the analog sticks work. Also the funny thing is, when i click the reset button and immediatley press x it works for 1 time but after that doesn't work.

 

What is this meant to mean? Cheers.

Sounds like you have a stuck buttons (or two) best thing to do is rub honey on it.

Yea, your x triangle and other buttons aren't working. You could try Spotters advice as I rubbed honey into my honeys honey last night and it did the job.

if you think it is completely knackered taking it to bits and cleaning it might fix it, but I have heard it can be difficult to put them back together though.

Try a diy fix yourself but if not you might have to fork out on another expensive controller :smileysad:

I'm sure it's not a problem from inside because when i press reset and then press x it works for 1 time? What does that mean?

It means you have to press reset and then x every time you use it.
