3 Replies 1,241 Views Created 15-04-2011

Purchased a new official ps3 dual shock 3 six axis controller off ebay.

It wont sync to the ps3. Will return with 4 blinking lights repeating slowly then turns off. I have tryed the reset button on the back and also atempted turning off the ps3 from the psu and botting back up with the controller off and pluged in via usb then trying. no dice.

i have read a few stories of people buying controllers from ebay having them not work, i think it might be possible that it is a chineese knock off which could be why it wont connect. im not sure if theres a way to check if its genuine or not, maybe the serial numbers?

packaging sugests its from playstation US and it states made in china on the back of the controller although the serial and sticker branding is def very dif to regular. Im thinking its more so a firmware issue , ive heard stories of certain serials not working with later firmware for some odd reason.

So you have the USB plugged in? wont work over USB and/or Bluetooth?

 

when connecting a new controller to my system i only ever use the USB and the PS3 does
