I am trying to fix a PS3 for the kids I work with. When turned on it displays "Plug in Controller USB and press PS button" The only controller I have is a 3rd party wired controller. I plug it in and push button. Nothing happens. Have tried Hard reseting console, changing outlets and nothing is working. Any ideas?

  • Are you sure the third party controller is for use with a PS3, what make and model of controller is it? If the controller is old or hasn't been used in a while it might just need charged for a while before it works. – Colin Sep 9 at 1:31
  • Its a PS3 controller. its also wired so there is no charging it. – Joshua Hetler Sep 17 at 17:47
