PS3 controller won't charge!

2 Replies 380 Views Created 13-06-2013

Hey, I have been having trouble when trying to charge my controller, it doesn't flash when I have plugged it in to the PS3, the controller seems to freeze when I attempt to connect it.

 

Things I have tried:

 

1. Reset controller (small reset button), Didn't make a difference.

2. Swapped USB ports (didn't work)

3. Tried another cable (same result)

4. Tried both cables on my PC (Got an error stating "unknown device malfunctioned" something along those lines anyways)

 

I'm not going to open the controller to manually fix the battery if that's the problem, because I tend to be very clumsy and might ruin a chip or something.

 

Any suggestions?

Try holding down the PS Button for 30 seconds.

The problem was the socket where you plug the charging cable into, I must jam it in there to get it to charge, this only worked with my stock charger.
