Playstation 3 controller trouble:?


After I turn off my ps3 it randomly turns back on because of the controller. I actually watched my controller for a little bit and I saw it in action out of nowhere without anyone touching it or moving it, it turns on by itself and turns on the ps3. I have to keep that controller in the garage or it’ll overheat my ps3 without me knowing.

I’m thinking it’s got something to do with the home button but I have no idea how to fix it. Has anybody else had this problem?

  1. Maybe the PS button or its electronic switch is stuck. Try disassembling your controller (might void warranty or break your controller if you’re not careful) and free up any sticking parts. Press all the buttons and switches a few times to free them up. Otherwise I’d advise you to get a new controller.

  2. that’s pretty out of the ordinary. the only problem i’ve ever had with my controllers are with the sticks getting messed up. solution: get another controller.
