When you recommended to freshen it up before doing number 4, How long does that take and totally new to this ps3 but I hope I don't have to do number 4, who's to say how long That one Will Take but for the better in the long run and if I have to try it I will. We only use this for games also, so will that make it correct and fix faxter. Again With Thanks
My ps3 says connect controller using usb cable but it doesn't recognize my controller ever. Anyone know how to fix this?
I remember I had an issue with my controller not connecting. Try this method and see if it works:
On the back of the controller there is a little hole (it's next to the hole that has the screw and it is smaller than this). Use a thin object like a needle or a toothpick to push the tiny button in that hole. What that does is reset the controller as if it came out of a brand new box. Try reconnecting the controller via a USB cable once you press the reset button and see if it works.
