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.

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.

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

The honey will act as an anti-sticking agent.

Slap some honey on there, wait an hour or two, clean it off and your controller will be as good as new.

Depends on how old the controller is as to what the best advice would be. If it's very old and you've used it a lot, it might just be wear and tear. If it's newer, you might be able to get a replacement (if you kept the receipt). Otherwise there are videos on YouTube that detail on how you can take it apart to take a look, if you're up to it.
