ReSync PS3 controller on another PS3

Hey guys,

Just wanted to know how I can re sync a controller I have for the PS3 upstairs to my PS3 downstairs?

I connect it to the usb cable but it will not sync. Nothing happens when I press the centre PS button. When I unplug it and press the PS button it will turn on the PS3 upstairs

I know I must be doing something wrong, just cant seem to figure it out!

Help!!!!

Maybe you need to try a different cable? Perhaps turn off the power switch on the back of the other one, or hold down the reset button in the back.

With my system, I just plugged it in and it worked.

Re: ReSync PS3 controller on another PS3

It should be through the USB cable...does it charge the controller when connected? Try a different USB port...and like Kaz says, turn off the other PS3 completely.

I'll no doubt have the same trouble when I pick up another PS3 in the future

Re: ReSync PS3 controller on another PS3

I'll have to give that a go as you guys suggest. It does charge my controller, so all should be in order.

Re: ReSync PS3 controller on another PS3

I only mention powering the other one down because that's what I did with mine. At the point where I was moving controllers over the 20gig was basically unusable.

You are doing it right. It's just not working. You could try resetting the controller. Find a small pin and insert it in the tiny hole on the back of the controller. Once the controller is reset, try to resync it again using the method you have already used. That should work.

Re: ReSync PS3 controller on another PS3

I would try turning the other PS3 off at the power too - as maybe when it connects it sends an 'ok' signal back? :-/

Yeah, that would be a good idea. If the controller is already connected to another PS3, it might not be programmed to switch to another console.
