None of my ps3 controllers will connect/turn on

6 replies 332 views Edited Sep 26, 2013

I turn my ps3 on and it says a hdmi device is detected do i want to use it but I press the PS button on the controller and there are no lights or anything so I can't do anything. All three had charge last night and I have tried them all so I don't think it is a controller issue.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Do you have it connected using the USB cable?

Did you try the controller reset by using a paper clip and sticking it in the little hole located on the bottom of the controller and pushing it a few times?

If you have the PS3 off and in stanby mode(solid red light) and have the PRIMARY controller that came with the PS3 connected to the PS3 with the provided USB cable, and turn on the PS3 which goes to the "HDMI detected" screen and the controller still won't work then I dunno sorry.

Hi,

 

Here are a few more options to try:

One of the things you may want to try is to see if your controllers can connect to a friend's ps3.  That would give you an idea if it is an issue with your controllers or possibly one with your console.

 

Thanks,
