For those of you who found resetting or anything thing else didn't work. I accidentally found a way. I pressed the start button and the lights still flashed. I pressed the select button and the light still flashed. I pressed both the select and start at the same time and my controller began to work. I hope this helps. PS my controller was plugged in with the usb however I don't think you need it to be plugged in. Good luck!

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

This method works -100%. I had the same prob, but then I called to master.. He came and laughed instead to tell me this by phone;| Thanks for the forum, a lot of useful information.

I read a bunch of the cries for help and majority of solutions for why my PS3 controllers refused to communicate with my game station.

 

The little button on the back got reset: didnt fix the problem.

 

Went and got the long recharger cable and plugged in the controller; controller worked! (yay)

 

Then I went into the PS3 [Accessories] settings  for calibration and then unplugged the PS controller from the cord and hold down X

 

I am fully wireless again. 

 

I hope this helps.
