boot up your PS3 using that controller plugged in via the USB cable (needs to sync).

Then remove the cable once on the XMB screen, hit the PS button and you should be ok from there feller :smileyhappy:
note: make sure your controllers is fully charged

Re: My Ps3 wireless controller won't work

When using the controller wirelessly, if the controller and the system are too far apart,

you will not be able to operate the system effectively.

 


When using the wireless controller, you must pair it with the system and assign
it a controller number. With the system turned on (power indicator on the system
front is lit solid green), connect the system and the controller using the USB
cable, and then press the PS button on the controller.

 


Check the charge level of the wireless controller battery. When the controller is
used in wireless mode, it will not function if the battery does not have any charge
left. Charge the battery by connecting the controller to the system with the USB
cable.

 


Wireless controllers for the PS3™ system are not equipped with a vibration
function and will not vibrate when using software that support the vibration
function.

 

Reset the wireless controller by pushing the reset button on the controller rear

with a sharp-tipped object such as a pen.
