Dear Playstation Community, I had this PS3 for a bout a week and I have some wierd issues with it, basically sometimes when I turn on the system with my PS3 controller, the system turns on and all the 4 lights on the front of the controller keeps blinking and controller wont function until I reset the controller with the small botton in the back of the controller. PS3 firmware is 4.21, this is my 3rd replacement and previous replacements had other issues but i never had this controller issue, can it be the bluetooth card inside the PS3? or is it a bug in the PS3 firmware?
The 4 lights always blink when i trun my controller on, and then it goes to 1 solid red controller.
Are you sure it isn't assigned as controller 2? Or it isn't paired properly? It sounds like you never paired the controller.
To pair simply plug it in with the USB and hold the PS button.
To assign as controller 1 once it starts working hold the PS button and assign controller number.
