USB Not connecting to PS3

My PS3 afterglow controller has always worked great but recently the USB drive just stopped connecting. Now whenever I plug in the USB to my system it just continuously blinks. My USB ports are working fine because I can still charge other controllers and the actual USB to the controller connects perfectly fine to my PC just not my PS3. So I have no clue what the issue is and I don't quite want to get a new controller yet because it seems like this one still works, it just isn't connecting to my PS3 right now. It'll be great if someone could answer this

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Check the pins on the controller's end of the USB. Are any of them bent or dirty? A short due to a bent pin or dirt blocking a connection could be causing the issue. It also would not hurt to give the controller's usb pins a cleaning with contact cleaner to ensure a clean connection. I would also recommend checking the cable itself, to see if their are any kinks in or exposed wiring. If that doesn't it fix it, then its most likely a problem within the controller's PCB board.
