ps3 controllers

4 replies 84 views Edited May 7, 2013

Both of my wireless ps3 controllers are not working I have reset them already and that didnt help.  They wont even charge I tried plugging them into the system and even a laptop.  I dont want to send the whole system in just the controllers is there any other option?

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

How old are the controllers?

 

You said you'd tried to reset them, do you mean re-sync them using the pinhole on the back of the DS3?

It looks like you have to buy a new controller. You could try to fix them by opening them up and cleaning them (which is very easy)-- I mean, just so you don't have to spend money. But I suggest you buy a new one, it's worth it.

I agree, it looks as though you may require a new DS3, check Amazon for decent prices, Walmart too, as for sending to Sony, not much point really, they're not under warranty & they'll charge you for a fix or send you a refurbished one.
