PS3 Bluetooth Controller Sync Issues Reported in Firmware 3.10


Sponsored Links
273w ago - It's now been over two weeks since Sony released PS3 Firmware 3.10, however, according to several reports this weekend including Loot-Ninja.com (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!

Time for a rushed sony update? (hmmm I wonder...)

Mind you, i guess the 3.10 must have been rushed too if its as bad as this.
(Glad i didn't update mine yet, but then again seems mainly SLIM's are being affected??)

I have the problem if I power on the slim with the controller, but seems ok if I power it on from the console.

I've had this problem too (UK slim model). It's weird.. when it happens, I can power my PS3 on wirelessly with the controller, but as soon as it gets to the XMB all the lights flash.

I just ended up plugging in via USB.. maybe it'll be fixed in the next firmware?

I have the same problem (Slim, 120jigabytes). The trick (solution) is to wait for your console to boot up and then try to sync the controllers.

I have no problems with the 40GB version. Is it a problem with the Slim version only?

Yup, I have exactly the same problem also. Sometimes it works to reset the controller but usually only the usb cable plugged in fixes this temporarily. So the best thing to do is like sirjamalot said, to turn on the console with it's own button.

My controllers will do that sometimes too. Yesterday I was playing Ratchet and Clank and he just kept running straight into a wall lol, but usually it just goes in circles.

I'm having problems with bluetooth headset not keeping in sync but I dont know if its after the firmware update or its always been a problem since I hardly ever used that feature I guess I'll never know.
