You need original Sony USB cable that came with the console. Others might be too weak/feeble to get needed power to controller. If cable is working with some other controller, it doesn't mean it works for Sony.

there is a tiny hole on the underside of the controller, very near where your left index finger would normally point to. There is a reset button under there. Plug in the controller then use a toothpick or what not to push the reset button, and it should start charging.
