Right tried to play my PS3 last night but when i pressed the PS button it didnt come on,so plugged in via usb and all working fine and thought the battery was low/dead.

Left to charge for 30 mins and then unplugged the controller but 2 lights flashed once and went off and now wont work unless its plugged in all the time ?

Any ideas ? if tried resetting the controller but still the same issue ?

TIA

try reconnecting it thru the ps3 menu

Dead battery inside controller? Battery may not be holding its charge no more meaning you have to always have it plugged in or buy a new battery for the pad

Maybe the battery has died, this happened to one of my old non-dual shock ones (the ones that came out @ PS3 launch)

Why oh why could they not make the battery packs replaceable like they did with the Xbox 360 ones???

thanks for all of the replies - think ive managed to sort it . Tried numerous USB cables but then decided to plug into the PC,then i put it back in the PS3 and it seems to be charging :)
