The only thing that seems to fix the problem so far is turning the console off via the switch in the back and then turning it back on. But do not mention it has been abused. I'll turn them off, though, and when turned back on, they just blink all four lights forever. Once the drivers for the Dualshock 3 are installed, the joystick behaves almost like the native Xbox 360 controller. All four lights should be lit if it's fully charged.
Check the charge level of the wireless controller battery. Happens to me now with many different versions. Hi all, my first post here Mantishead and tobefirst, your problem with the blinking lights sounds exactly like my problem which I solved. I can't even tell if it is in fact charging. If the controller is responding properly at this point it should begin to auto sync with the system, which can fix certain issues with the device.
When I got the computer new from Dell, I even had them replace the Bluetooth board in the computer because i thought it was a hardware problem. I have a home cinema system from Thompson. It must be something on Windows 10. It does this every time I have to re-install windows. Then as im still holding ps button turn it back on. I think the controller is charging. This will involve your second controller.
The batteries of this controller are replaceble and its a fairly easy fix. The battery swap If replugging the battery did not work on its own, then it is time to try to determine whether the battery is what is causing the problem. Basically, as 2nyRiggz suggested, try resetting the controller using the small button on the back of the controller - use a paper clip. This is where you can see the charge level. They can cost as much as a new game itself.
I've tried the shift restart method for force installing as well but I'm not seeing any changes after installing even as administrator. Same Here I also have this problem. Originally posted by :I got it to charge, sorry! If that light starts blinking while it's still unplugged, then it's dying. For me the functionality works fine. Windows 7 or 8 users - leave it unchecked. Swap the batteries of these two controllers and try to charge them as you would normally. If you own another controller, try switch the batteries.
There the blinking would of stopped. At first I was assuming I hadn't charged the controllers for long enough. Sony has made a big mistake here and I am afraid we will have to live with it. Every battery problem is unique, so you may need to try a few approaches before you find the one that works for you. Hold down the for a few seconds. If both controllers charge properly then congratulations, the problem is fixed! Select run as an administrator to install it. My brand new controller was completely dead.
I've researched this, and nothing I've read seems to work. So, I reset the controller by pressing the button on the back with a paper clip and the controller came back online. I may have solved the problem. I won't know for sure if this worked until I try to charge up a second controller fully. As far as I remember, the manual doesn't mention that the blinking lights could be due to the bluetooth connection being lost - it only mentions the blinking lights in relation to the battery needing charging this belief also made me question the battery on the controller itself. When the controller is used in wireless mode, it will not function if the battery does not have any charge left.
I would love to see this resolved. I have made sure its fully charged and that its connected according to the scpmonitor. I will update this after further testing. At this point the controller works fine, but continues to flash like it isn't connected or low on battery. This has worked 100% of the time.
