PS3 Slim Controller Blinking lights issue, any ideas?


Ran into an issue with the the PS3 Slim Controller Blinking lights.
- charging for more than 5-6 hrs and then pairing by pressing PS and then unplug but no connection.
- keeps Blinking and then stops - which makes me think it is fully charged and then after a minute or so - starts blinking again.
- tried PS3 Slim poweroff, unplug usb cable and then controller by pressing the reset button on back near the middle screw, but in vain.
- also tried to see if Bluetooth settings had anything to do with it, but in vain...
- it worked fine the very first time out of the box and i charged it and paired it by pressing PS and also used it WIRELESS.!

Note: Controller works fine when connected on usb cable - but miss the wireless aspect of it!....

Any ideas? - almost getting ready to call SONY or stop by in BB for a controller exchange.

thanks in advance.

Plug the controller in with USB, and power everything on. Once on and connected press the reset button (all still plugged in) then try the wireless pairing again.

Also, what about interference from another device? Neighbours other systems etc? Please provide info
