I was playing last weekend till i get a message on screen saying “the controller needs charging”. I plug the controller to the usb in PS3. It looked ok(Charging) After some time all 4 lights started blinking. when i pressed PS button saw a message “Charging failed” (something like that). As soon as i removed the USb to put it back and try again, the controller is dead. No light shows up when i plugged in back .. I tried pressing PS button nothing happened.
I hope this works for me… i have to try this next weekend when i go to home.. BTW thanks for sharing
