My controller won't connect to the PS3 wirelessly.

6 Replies 13,014 Views Created 08-12-2011

It can only connect through a wire, it's so annoying.

Any Help?

Did you try pressing the reset button on the underside of the controller (just above and to the right of the label) and re-pairing it with your console using the USB cable?

Did you let the battery run down too far? Once below a certain threshhold, the battery won't charge any more and the controller will only work in wired mode.

Hi MUFC_JASON_DYNES,

Sorry about the delay in responding to your post.


Do you have any other controllers that are unable to sync to your console or is it just the new controller you have purchased?

If it is only the new controller and have followed the above troubleshooting by resetting the controller while connected to the PS3; you may need to look at taking the controller back to the retailer it was purchased from for a replacement controller.

Please be aware that PS3 controllers have a 1 year return to retailer warranty.


Hope this helps.

Same problem here the controller will not connect wirelessly nor wired, tried the reset button and unplugged the power, do not have a spare controller to test though.  Very annoying its my first console in years, had it 3 weeks and can't play GTA5 nor COD Ghosts.  I thought these problems were for PCs not PS3's.  Hopefully I have missed a troubleshooting method coz I would hate to have to take it back.

Hi cbd226,


Please have a read of my above post.  If the troubleshooting does not work, you will want to look at replacing your controller as mentioned previously. :smileyhappy:

 

Hope this helps.
