Seems this is a rare problem, but I will describe it as best I can. Basically when I'm playing Black Ops online my controller acts weird and activates a button I have not even touched! Very annoying as my character is constantly randomly jumping and equipping his pistol and claymore when I haven't even pressed anything. I thought it may be the wireless of the controller so I played with the USB cable plugged in. This seemed to fix the problem for a few weeks but now the controller is pressing random buttons even with the USB cable attached.
I read that it may be my PS3's internal wireless board going faulty but I'm not sure...
Anyone know of this problem or how to fix it?
Thanks and Merry Christmas
hey dude, it maybe the battery in the controller,have you reset the ds3 if not try that & resync it
OMG, i got same problem. It happened to me after the latest patch that messed up the multiplayer.
When I tap L1 to zoom in it sometimes shoots. When im moving/running with the left joystick/L3
switches to my secondary and takes out my equipment (which would be triangle and up arrow).
Btw do you lot use tactical button layout, maybe this is the problem. I havernt tried it though.
Trust this is so much more annoying on FIFA11. My sqaure keeps randomly pressing and I keep giving away penalties or getting players sent off as my player just slide in without warning!
hi there how do you reset the ds3?
on the back there is a tiny little hole with a reset button. Press it with a pin or paper clip, then connect to ps3 via usb to resinc.
I'm still having the same problems, mainly the up button on d-pad going off randomly. It was a fairly new controller as well (3 months) so I thought it was faulty and returned it for a replacement. Same problem on the new one so I think it must be the game. BYW I had a quick try with a really old (3y+) controller and didn't have the problem but only used it for a couple of games. Will have another look.......
Put down those contollers kids.You are all having eptileptic seizers.:Stupid:
IM havin the same problems and its VERRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY annoyinggg! 15/20 of my deaths in black ops is because of this glitch!
just had to post here, ive experienced the exact same problems and i think i may have fixed my pad.
like others have posted whilst playing any game really (so i dont beleive it is game specific, seen a lot of people namely blame it on B.O but i dont beleive it is the case) randomly one of the 4 directional buttons will activate.
now this is the second pad that has had this problem, my first which was a brand new red one started with this problem after just 2 weeks, my ps3 then developed the YLOD, so i bought a new ps3 and obviously got a brand new pad with it, this pad lasted a month b4 the problems started occuring.
anyways all i did was open up the pad and gave it a real good cleaning, once you have the back of the pad off you will need to locate the single screw that holds the circuit board firmly in place, remove that screw then remove the board, underneath you will then be able to get at the white piece of rubber that the buttons use, clean any dust/hairs that may be stuck to the rubber, then also clean the flimsy bit of see through plastic which the buttons press against (i beleive cleaning the flimsy plastic was the key here)
and thats it, once i put everything back together (this bit will really test your patience lol) i reset the pad for good measure, its now been about 2 hours of cod/fifa playing and the random button pressing has stopped.
good luck hope this helps
Same problem here. I acquired my PS3 in Tokyo the day of launch, the problem has been there since day 1, but only with the triangle button. This only happens with the first pads I got back then though; I have also a dual-shock one and it doesnt happen with that one. The other 2 pads both say "Made in Japan" on the back. I guess the first few pads that were made for launch were faulty.
I have the exact same problem! Its only with the Triangle button thought. In black ops it either keeps opening my friend list up in lobbies or changes to my secondary in game. I thought it was the game at first, but as i was playing in a multiplayer race in GTA IV, i was in first place and the same thing happened and my player bailed out of the vehicle when I was going fast and in the lead costing me the race, was funny to watch tbh, but i'd rather play without this problem! I think it may be something in the controller, perhaps wiring or something. I have dropped it many times by accident!
i think its the controller i have the same problem. My guess is you would have to go into the controller and reassemble it
