I have a PS3 controller that will not function at all wireless or tethered. After looking at some troubleshooting I have attempted the reset button on the controller and also done this with console on and off with no success. I thought initially it was destined for the trash can as the only response I see is four lights that blink either 10 or 12 times depending on weather it wireless or tethered. However, when I attached this to my PC via I see it is immediately recognised as a PS3 controller. Just wondering if anyone had experienced anything similar? Or had any trouble shooting advice I can perform with the controller or maybe some PC software to see if it is indeed dead.
Installed motionjoy and ds3 and tested controller, well the vibration test built into the application and it responds. The device is being recognised but just not on the PS3. I have both another Dualshock 3 and 2 move controllers working on the same console so failing to understand where the problem may stand. Would assume it has an issue pairing but does not explain why it's not working tethered.
