My controller is chagred but behaves as if it has no charge.

I have two move controllers and both were low on battery life so I charged them both on my way to bed. The next morning one worked and the other did not. When connecting to a power source it blinks quickly then goes dark. It does the same when I use it to try and power up the PS3. Where the working one flickers and eventually syncs giving a solid red light at the bottom of the controller the malfunctioning one will not. It flickers then goes dead without ever having turning on the PS3.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Sounds daft, but have you tried hitting the reset button on the back? Similar to the six-axis controllers look for a little hole big enough for a paperclip and depress the switch for approx 10 secs. Then try and sync the device.

that's the 1st thing I tried. No change! Is it possible that the battery has burned out from leaving it on the charger? The unit works fine while its plgged onto the usb but dies as soon as it's taken off. Battery doesn't seem to take a charge at all. Is it possible to purchase a new battery and replace it myself?

This is a great site! thanks for your help.
