Re: how to sync ps3 controller

OK I just got two red DS3 controllers off eBay and neither of them will sync up if not pluggged in via usb. All I get when I disconnect is the 4 flashing lights again. I've tried several of the methods posted here, with no luck. I do know that neither controller is a Sony brand - (much to my chagrin). Is this still an issue? I noticed this thread started quite a while ago...any updates to how to get the controllers to sync?

If you're having problems with keeping your controllers synced wirlessly they are most likely copies. Especially if bought off Ebay. They look authentic but are actually knockoffs. There's nothing anyone can do to fix the problem.

You can find lots of info on how to identify fakes.

I had the same problem and tried all these remedies but nothing seemed to work.  I was in recovery mode and out of options when i decided to try the usb cord that came with the ps3 instead of the generic ones.  FINALLY it worked for me, i felt stupid for not trying that sooner.  hopefully that helps someone's issue.
