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.
