Re: PS3 controller won't connect, corrupt wireless controller code?

Thanks mate. I will give it a try.

 

I dont use that controller anymore, but it cant hurt to test it out so my mates wont whinge about not being able to play 2 player (like most games have that as an option anymore anyway!!!) when they come over.

[ Edited ]

If all the above suggestions don't work try the following that worked for me:

 

Get hold of an old controller that you know connected and recharged.  Open it and carefully remove the battery.  Open up the problem controller. Replace the battery. Close it.  That's it.

You can probably buy a battery controller or a damaged controller on eBay. 
There are some videos on youTube that show you how to open up the controller.  I take no responsibility for any damage that you might cause to your controller if you follow this advice.  Just be carefull.  It's a simple operation and worked for me.

Re: PS3 controller won't connect, corrupt wireless controller code?

I just plugged the USB into mylap top, it updated the controller "ready to use". The lights went off. I pushed the PS button and the whole system came on. I was like holy cow...i can't believe that worked. Thanks everyone.

Re: PS3 controller won't connect, corrupt wireless controller code?

I had the same issue. The bluetooth circuit board was not damaged at all, it was just very dusty.

 

I simply opened up my PS3, removed the bluetooth circuit board following these instructions http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Installing+PlayStation+3+Wi-Fi-Bluetooth+Board/3482/1

 

and cleaned it up. If that doesn't work you probably need to replace the bluetooth circuit board.

Re: PS3 controller won't connect, corrupt wireless controller code?

I HAD The same problem until right this second. Heres what you have to do. Look on the back of your broken controller and NOT A CUSTOM CONTROLLER  and look for a little hole in the back and use a pin to stick it in there for seconds (When the ps3 system is on) then turn it on by using the PS Button.

 

Hope this Helped,

Re: PS3 controller won't connect, corrupt wireless controller code?

Hi XInsANeGaMErX23,

 

Sorry to hear your controller is not working correctly.

Please connect the controller to your PlayStation 3 through the USB cable, then insert something not too sharp into that little pin hole on the back of the controller.  You just want to press it in and hold it for a few seconds.

After this try pressing the PS button to turn the controller on while connected to the PS3.

If this does not work, you may need to look at the replacement of your controller.  Please be aware that PlayStation controllers have a 12 month warranty period.

Hope this helps.
