Hello Pit, I come to you with a problem. Recently I purchased a used ps3 from a Game store nearby. However there is a problem, the controller that came with the console would occasionally stop responding. However the game itself would keep running, and the controller was still "connected". As in the red light was solid and the console did not come up with "please re-connect controller". I exchanged the controller for a new one yesterday, and today the same thing has happened. Is this because the battery still needs to be conditioned or is the console bugged beyond repair?


Sorry for the wall of text, in short controller not working please help. And I have posted in the gaming thread to no avail.

No, it's because you need to stop being a Sony fanboy, and get yourself a Xbox 360.

I thought it might have been something to do with it being used, but wondered if anyone had had similar problems. Might have to go get my money back then buy me a new one. And thank you metallica92 for voicing what I was thinking.

that would be valid if the ps3 had a history of problems (ala xbox 360) - but it doesn't, so bathe with a toaster, cheers.

I doubt that a (decent) retailer would sell on that console if they were aware of the problem, so I would return it if you can't find a solution. Does it work when you plug it into the USB port?

It can stop responding when it's both plugged in and wireless. After the film I'm watching I'm gonna turn off the console and back on (Only way to get the controller to respond again) and then charge it all day to see if that helps. I thought that as the controller was pre-owned as well, the previous owner might have been a fecktard with conditioning the battery.

I love the way you all jump on the guy who said "buy an xbox" for being a fan boy even though everyone with a PS3 does it in the threads about xbox problems.
