• i'M USING AN 80 GB PS3 . i've been having problems with my dual shock controller. When i start
    the system the circle & triangle button does not work. When i start a game, video or browser
    the two buttons still dont work. When i start a game, video or browser and press the PS button
    the whole controller stops working. Ive tried resetting the controller by pressing the reset button
    on the back of the controller. But nothin works. When i start the system and then connect the controller
    to the system the two buttons start working for a few seconds then stop.
  • I think the problem may be in the buttons themselves- it's possible that over time the contacts underneath may be getting worse for wear. If you feel up to it you could take the controller apart and see if there may be some dirt causing the issue but it may well be easier to get a replacement.
