SOURCE: PS3 Controller will only work when plugged into the USB

I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?

  • Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
  • Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
  • Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
  • Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
  • Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.

SOURCE: PS3 controller Problem

I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.

Where is the reset button for the afterglow AP.2 wireless located


There is not one. The Afterglow AP2 requires a dongle that plugs into one of your available USB ports in the system. Without it, it is just a glowing paper weight. Setup: Controller=transmitter, dongle=receiver. Read the box if you have it. If it says something like (2.5 htz) then it isn't bluetooth compatible.

Can't connect orb controller to ps3


Plug the dongle in to the USB port, turn on the PS3 and the LED will flash a lot (as if you've pressed the connect button), then press L3 and SELECT together for 3 seconds; it'll then connect. Then press the PS button.
As long as you keep the dongle plugged in, the controller will not disconnect and won't need pairing again.

My new afterglow controller won't sync but turns on, it is wired.


If by not syncing you mean it flashes the whole ring when you plug the controller in the USB and won't identify? If so I think the problem may be that you have other USB devices plugged in at the same time. Unplug all the USB and plug the controller in by itself. I've had issues with this for awhile myself. I had a bluetooth and another wireless kb/mouse. So I unplugged everything tried it by itself and it seems to identify perfectly.

Conclusion: Unplug all the USB devices and plug the Afterglow 360 controller by itself and that should solve the problem. =)
