Re: how to sync ps3 controller

Aug 19, 2013
I think the obvious solution is to drive to a GAME store and buy an Xbox 360 and since the had the revolutionary idea to add a sync button, (I know it's a mind**bleep**), you don't need a USB cable!! WOOOO!

First of all make sure you using the original USB cable that came with the playstation. Second reset your controller by inserting something small into the small hole at the back of the controller. Thirdly, you plug in the controller and press the ps button. Your controller should sync and ready to play wirelessly.

I can confirm that the USB cable you use DOES make a difference, though it doesn't have to be the original one. I actually am using the USB cable for my PSP (the one that has a both a power plug and a USB plug on one end). Not sure if it's third-party or Sony-made, I don't remember.

I have the same problem... I have plugged in the USB to the console and the controller and it didn't work. I let it charge overnight and still nothing. I cannot use my playstation with a controoler that won't work with the console.... the lights just blink ..... no other activity
