My controller won't charge

13 replies 49706 views Edited Oct 21, 2007
The battery on my controller has gone down but it refuses to charge when I plug it into the PS3 system.
Will I need to buy a nw controller or a new lead?

ya, what he said. i had this problem once to. thought it was my usb ports. never did figure out what exactly was the problem. i just held the reset button for like 5 seconds and plugged the cable into a diff usb port, manually turned the ps3 on, and hit the ps button and it worked.
