I would try Gamestation first.

But if they dont want to know then this happened to me about a month ago, Controller wouldnt connect to the PS3 at all.

Sent it back to Sony Monday morning, they confirmed there was an issue. They sent a replacement out Wednesday afternoon (with a post strike) it arrived Saturday morning... not a bad turn around really.
