hi. well, today i messed up my ps3 controller. It wouldn't turn on anymore.So I tried opening it. I then tried turning on the controller and it worked. All the buttons still work, but if I close my controller back it will automatically go off. The controller is then disabled when closed. Seems like something in there istriggering this. Does anyone have any ideas to how Ican close my controller and have it still work?
ahm it seems that there is a problem in a connection in it. Check them all to verify that they r ok
I took a close inspection to the controller to see which part triggers this. I tried closing certain sides of the controller first to test this out. I found that something by the reset spot behind the controller triggers it. I had an idea, so I tried this. I took a piece of paper and stuck it in the crack of the controller where this problem is triggered. I was just taking a crack at it to see if it would work and sure enough it did. I'm plenty satisfied with this. Although it is better to have a controller with a piece of paper sticking out, but it's not that big of a paper. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Er... three lols in the sentence doesn't make a good joke. nlw is more like it (no laughs whatsoever).
Anyway, glad to hear your controller is working again. Sounds to me like something was shorting the reset switch, and the paper is stopping it. Daft design for the controller if that can happen, but hey. A working controller is better than a not working one.
