Hi, just registered with this website to tell you because i had the same problem for ages and just found out the solution.

PS3 controllers have a memory, theres a tiny hole in the back of the controller which is a reset button. stick a paperclip in or something and then turn on ps3, put the usb in and press the ps button. should sync straight away



I registered to say thank you ^^ your my hero ^^

OK my ps3 did not want to connect  to any **bleep** controller.  I reset  the ps3, I reset the controller,  I turn it  off, unplugged power and every combination in between.  I wanted to smash it with a hammer--connect to this you evil $!&*!#.   So in a last ditch effort I bought a wired 6axis controller.  Still nothing so I plugged in a mouse and it worked!  I could at least navigate the menu and I did a complete format and restore.  Took forever.  When it restarted I tried the controller and nothing!!  So I unplugged it and moved it  to the other USB port (the farthest one left or closest to the edge.  I tried the x button and BOOM I was in business.

Hi there, sadly this sounds like Ylod, there are temporary fixes for that but you gonna need to open up your ps3.
Do a basic search about it and you will get YouTube videos and detailed guides.
Hope you can fix it.

Hi,

 

I had bought a PS3 along with 1 additional joystick from Bangkok, it was cracked and had got 50 odd games which were full versions. I software i use to mount the full version games is Rogero Manager, the challenge I am facing is configuring the second joystick, have tried all sorts of solutions available online but have got no results. Hoping some assistance. Let me know if you guys have cracked a solution for this.
