I went to turn on my Dualshock controller today for my PS3 and it wouldn't turn on. no blinking lights, nothing. So I figure hey maybe the battery just needs some charging. So I plug it into my PS3 and nothing... I hit the PS button and still nothing, I try my other external controller charger and neither the charger base or the controller light up. I tried resetting the controller and I its still not turning on the controller and the lights still arent blinking.
Thanks in advance for any help you guys might have!
Solved! Go to Solution.
sounds like the batteries r dead and so they cant take a charge....BUT...... if the base ( which is plugged to the usb ports ) won't light either than maybe powers not getting to the usb terminals for some reason and the dongle wouldn't be getting power either than.
I tried reseting it already and it had no effect.
I plugged in the controller to my charging dock so it if it might be charging but just not giving me feedback and I come back to it about 10 min later and my controller has this burnt electronic/plastic smell and is warm where the usb port is >.>
