    PS3 Bluetooth Controller Sync Issues Reported in Firmware 3.10

    It's now been over two weeks since Sony released PS3 Firmware 3.10, however, according to several reports this weekend including (linked above) and the official PlayStation Forums it introduced a nasty Bluetooth controller sync issue.

    Apparently many gamers who updated to PS3 Firmware 3.10 now have to use their PS3 controllers connected with a USB cable to play games, however, most reports are isolated to new PS3 Slim console although some early PS3 owners are also having issues it seems.

    To quote: "Yesterday I ran into a troubling issue with my PS3 Slim where none of my three DualShock 3 controllers sync to my console via the wireless Bluetooth standard. Whenever I press the PlayStation button, all I get is four flashing lights as the controllers make a valiant attempt to sync with the PS3, but fail miserably.

    After going through the troubleshooting steps provided by Sony, I did what any frustrated gamer would do: I searched Google. Turns out, there are quite a few people experiencing the exact same issue, some of which are having trouble with Bluetooth headsets and Blu-Ray remotes as well."

    Has anyone here experienced this Bluetooth Controller sync issue since updating to PS3 Firmware 3.10? Feel free to comment below!

    Lightbulb My PS3 Slim 120GB is the same

    You can do a temp fix by plugging the controller in with usb and resetting the controller (with a pin).. then unplug and it should sync again. But it will stop working once you turn the system off and on again. (My original 60GB is still working fine)

    I have the same problem. If you turn on the system & then turn on the controller when it says playstation it almost always syncs up.
