PS3 Controller Sync without USB

5 replies 260 views Edited Aug 2, 2009

I have a ps3 that has no working usb ports. Each port recieves no power so i am unable to sync my ps3 controller. This ps3 has a fresh HDD inside it so it is asking me to format the HDD when i turn the ps3 on, but i am unable to do so because of my controller sync problem. Also because of this i have no access to any of the XMB menu options that may fix this. If anyone has any ideas on how to get around this please let me know.

 

p.s. Sending it into sony is not an option for this PS3.

 

Thanks, FoX

sounds like a heavily modified unit.... I was thinking a remote but no that won't work, and you can't use keyboard or mouse either since your USB's dont work, I think you're SOL from what I can see..

It's not modded at all actually. The HDD is the same one it had in it (i just erased it due to a currupt data issue). I think it will work fine once i get it formatted, just having a pesky controller problem. I've been tossing around the idea of adding a new usb port to the back of the ps3 but i'm not sure the new one will recieve power if the older ones do not.

If you've opened the PS3 (or know how to) maybe you could check to make sure the wires in there are connected
