Ps3 Controller Random Button Pressing

Seems this is a rare problem, but I will describe it as best I can. Basically when I'm playing Black Ops online my controller acts weird and activates a button I have not even touched! Very annoying as my character is constantly randomly jumping and equipping his pistol and claymore when I haven't even pressed anything. I thought it may be the wireless of the controller so I played with the USB cable plugged in. This seemed to fix the problem for a few weeks but now the controller is pressing random buttons even with the USB cable attached.

 

I read that it may be my PS3's internal wireless board going faulty but I'm not sure...

 

Anyone know of this problem or how to fix it?

 

Thanks and Merry Christmas

I found this video on YouTube and it shows how to fix your controller that has this problem, I haven't tried this myself but I'm pretty sure it will. the problem I'm having is when i use my left joystick, I'll either jump, throw grenades, or even equip/use my killstreaks when my guy is supposed to be running. All you'll need to do what the guy does in the video is a screwdriver and some tape (any kind). make sure you listen to the guy before you do anything do you won't accidentally break your controller, hope it works!

I have 2 remotes that do the same thing. Both dual shocks 3's sixaxis. A white one and a black one. They're junk. Thanks Sony. Buy a new one from Walmart and clean the old one up real nice and put the old one back in the package and return it and say it doesn't work. Make Walmart send Sony their junk back. $55 and doesn't even last a year. As much as I hate Xbox the customer service is top notch. Sony doesn't care about its customers.

All 4 of my controllers are doing this. I'm kind of wondering if it has anything to do with the PS3 itself? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem, but it gets fine when the controller is connected to the PS3 using USB cable. So is it the battery that I have to change?

Guys its an easy fix, i kept playing skate 3 and my guy would randomly get off his board all the time.

find the buttons that seem to be effected and put your mouth over it and blow, this will blow all the trapped dust that is causing the button to activate. Also a little smacking of the controller helped :D
