Power A Pro elite Wireless will not turn on after it has been unplugged from the PS3?


I just bought a Pro Elite controller and as soon as it was done charging, I unplugged it from the charger. As soon as I unplugged it however, the controller immediately turns off and I can’t get it to turn back on.

this is a brand new controller and it does work when plugged in

  1. If you’ve paired the controller properly with a USB cable and it still goes off when you unplug it, that usually means that the rechargeable battery in the controller is toast. You can get new ones for replacement online for about 5 or 6 bucks, and they’re easy to replace, but I’d take it back first. Even if it’s new, the battery shelf life may have already been exceeded, or it’s just a bad unit.

    Try setting the controller so that it’s the number 1 controller as well. Go into Settings>Accessory Settings>Reassign Controllers, and make sure the new one is set to 1 while it’s plugged into the PS3.
