Hey, i've recently taken my PS3 apart to clean the inside of it due to it was getting dusty and replacing the thermal compound as well so it doesn't overheat and get the Yellow Light of Death. I've put it all back together but now none of the controllers won't sync with the console. It just blinks the four red lights and then nothing.
My PSMove controller and my Wireless Headset won't connect either, the only way i can get my controllers to work is by plugging them in via the USB cable. I've also try pressing the little button on the back of the controllers but that still doesn't work. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix them? or shall I starting buying some USB extension cables?
Yeah i use a wireless connection on my PS3 and it seems to be working ok from what i can tell (still on firmware 3.41) and i have tried pressing the button on the back on the controller and connecting it but that didn't work either. So how do i check the Bluetooth module? what does it look like?
See pics , This is the bluetooth board (The part hanging out on second picture), its located under the card reader (if you have one!) Check the ZIF (zero insertion force) and power connections carefully, sometimes the ribbon cables are damaged even if they look ok, if you can try replace all the ribbon cables from another unit and test, if you cant get more cables just check them very carefully. possibly one of the bluray ribbon cables is the exact same cable as main bluetooth cable, cant remember, I know some of the Ribbon cables are interchangable.
Thanks for that image, i've just taken the PS3 apart and noticed that i didn't put the ribbon in far enough (i wondered why the clip seemed a bit loose, i though i'd broken it) and now its worked perfectly. Thanks for all your help guys.
