I have several possible solutions that I have learned; Maybe open the controller up, disconnect the battery, then put it back in, or see if there is any liquid in the controller. The most obvious way is to get a paper clip, then press the reset button with it. Turn on the PS3, connect the controller to the PS3, hold the PS button on the controller, then restart your PS3. Release the PS button when the PS3 is fully turned on.
