Hey guys
My PS3 controller will not charge. If i plug it into the ps3 it works fine but it doesnt charge at all. If i plug it into my comp then the lights flash for about 5 seconds and then shut off. It wont turn on at all unless it is plugged into the ps3. when i click the ps button when it is plugged in, there is a solid line where it usually says how much battery is left.
any ideas would be awesome
thanks

maybe the battery is faulty or maybe somehow its come out of the connection inside(very doubtful though) but u never know, open it up and check it wont void ur warrenty, take mine apart all the time to spray.

take it back to where u had it from to replace.

If at 1st u dont succeed, cheat untill caught and then lie.

It will void the warranty because its been tampered with,you may be lucky and return it without the person in the shop noticing it was open,but if they do you will have a broken PS3 controll pad and have to buy a new one.

If reseting it hasnt worked just take it back to the shop WITHOUT opening it.

there is no seal or sticker, just open the pad and check the wires just to see if they are intact or sumin, i dont mean rip out all of the inside coz if u take that back off the inside is still screwd downand u can see the battery, if you dont know what ur doing dont take the pad apart by all means i dont want the fault, but it shuldnt void because there are no seals and basically nothin to proove u have opened it, taken mine apart about 10 times now to spray and change the led colours.

It can void the warranty,if there is any sign of tampering like the screws,the faulty one has to go back to Sony.
