Batarang controller sync problem

[ Edited ]

Just got the Batarang controller for Christmas but having issues getting it to sync. Won't connect to the system at all and will go to sleep after trying to find it for about 15-20 seconds. Any suggestions?

I know this is an officially licensed controller for the PS3, it also looks remarkedly like a 360 controller to me too, having said that some have had success with it & others not so much, personally I prefer the Sony DS3 for my gaming, I know this was a Christmas present but personally it's something you may want to think about exchanging this for.

 

As for your issue, does this controller have a reset pinhole in the back like the official Sony one, if so have you rried using it to reset/re-sync it?

Do you have the usb adaptor piece? The controller picks up the signal to the PS3 from that piece. You cannot sync to the system without that. My son has one.

There's a little reset hole on RF sensor itself, there you can see how to sync the controller with your system.
