Hi,

Basically this is the story i bought this playstation today of one of my mates, The problem with the PS3 is that the front USB ports do not work, Which means it cannot connect to the controller. I bought it thinking i can just charge the controller on my laptop but i failed with that plan!, If anyone is interested in taking it off me for the price i paid @ £150, Comes with leads and one unoffical controller & a copy of euro 2008.
Shipping/Payment:
Cash on collection (preffered) - Leicestershire

Delivery - £15? Parcel2go.. Will need to double check that.

The charging problem must be because of the unofficial controller. As far as I know all USB ports give out the same power, so it should charge from any USB port, I know my controllers charge from my laptop USB ports.

But the problem is its not connecting to the PS3 because its not reading the USB port? And without that it wont connect.

Does it sync with the ps3 because you have to use the cable to do so you charge from loads of things v3 charger htc phone chargers as they are the same
#4
Nope doesnt sync, the controllers lights just keep flashing. i'll try an official controller of a relative to see if that works.
#5
Ah right, I completely forgot about the controllers syncing via the USB ports. I guess the USB ports would need to be fixed before the console could be used then.
#6
Why dont you buy a official controller for it as that doesnt need the usb to sync?

My official Dual Shock 3 controllers do not charge from my PC/Laptop/Phone charger or any power source other than the PS3 - I have come across this before so not all mini-USB chargers are the same, a solution is to buy can buy those little charging stands (check out http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/470229/dual-controller-charging-dock-ps3-8/), but still doesnt solve your pairing problem. Have you tried checking for latest firmware update and a different USB cable?

Have you ever been able to pair these up? If you have you may be in luck. I have had issues in the past where I have had to power down the whole system before the Bluetooth will connect to controllers. Do you have a USB keyboard you could try in the sockets too? You can at least use the arrow keys on the PS3 menu to prove if its a faulty port or not.

my offical pads(4 of them) will all charge with my camera lead,cable that came with it,pc,xbox 360,even my surround sound will charge them up.all u need is a standard usb-mini usb cable(or i just been lucky with the dozens of cables i have here

but it could be a faulty cable as mosschops said.


but if u cant get a usb to connect its pretty much dead,
have u got house insurance?(accidental damage would be a shame :whistling:

all my controllers (& ds3) charge fine using the cable via a pc usb port

this isnt the ops problem though

without a usb port, then he cannot sync any controller to the ps3 effectively making the ps3 useless until the ports are repaired.

Thanks for the advice dudes, Do you think i overpaid? He owed me a debt of £50 so i said il take this off your hands for £100 + minusing the debt. Anyone interested in doing a bit of repairing?
#14
Just a thought have you tried another USB cable???? Also try getting a USB flash drive with some music on it, plugging it in to the ports in turn and using the PS3 remote (not controller) to see if you can view the content on the flash drive. (you will need to get a remote though)

You basically paid £100 for a blu ray player if is is nackered - which isn't too bad to be honest.
