Hello everyone! This is my first thread on forum so if I did something wrong I'm sorry
Few days ago I connected my DS3 controller to PC using program called DS3 Tool. Everything worked fine and I was able to play my game with controller. But when I wanted to play games on my PS3, which is by the way FAT model(80GB) it didn't work! PS3 turns on when I press PS button on controller and controller is working for about 20 secs and then it turns off by itself! Sometimes it wont turn on at all! Also when I connect it with USB cable to PS3 it's working and it's charging but after about 5 minutes it says it's fully charged ( when it's connected with USB cable all for LEDs are blinking until I press PS button then only one LED, first is blinking). And if I leave it connected with USB cable for some time it also turns off by it self but I in my PS3 settings I turned off option "automatically tun off controller"
I would try to use it with pc turned off but controller won't turn on now. It won't respond to any button even it won't respond when I press PS button. Previously I uninstalled all drivers on PC!
How old is the controller? It sounds like your battery may just be worn out. I had the same type of trouble with one of my DS3 controllers. It would fully charge very quickly, then go dead a short while later. Swapped the battery with one of my old Sixaxis units and it worked fine again. Odd that my much newer DS3 had its battery fail before my old Sixaxis, but that's "progress" I guess.
I also had a controller that decided it didn't want to sync any longer. Tried resets with and without the USB cable and everything else that was suggested on the support site, to no avail. Finally tried a battery pull. Disconnected the battery for a few minutes, and the controller synced right up after putting it back together. It seems the reset pin doesn't reset everything.
Everyone thinks I'm psychotic (except my friends deep inside the earth).
so should I replace battery and can I use battery from another controller just to make sure that battery in ds3 is dead? I have this(dead) ds3 controller and another sixaxis controller.
