I purchased a new wireless controller at best buy and a playstation controller charger, I charged the controller and tried to turn on the ps3 to play a game and there was no response just the lights on the wireless controller came on and. Went off . So then I pluged the USB wire for the controller to the ps3 and there was nothing happening . Not sure what to do this is the first controller I have purchased for my ps3 . I was going to make it my primary controller and the controller that came with my ps3 I was going use as secondary for my nieces when the come over they can both play together . I hope it's just a simply solution . Because I threw out the box the wireless controller came in I normally don't do that but I figured it's just a controller.

Did you try pressing the PS button while the controller was connected to the PS3 with USB (PS3 must be on for this)? When a friend comes over he always has to connect his controller with USB first, then disconnect the USB before it will work. Else it won't connect wirelessly. Everything should be working fine after doing that once though.
