An awesome team of students from our education program made this wiki. This troubleshooting page will help you diagnose problems with the PS3 Wireless Afterglow Controller. Trigger buttons are unresponsive or missing. Trigger buttons must be replaced entirely for the proper functioning of the controller. When buttons feel loose or flimsy, the spring component of the button may be broken. In this case the spring would need to be replaced. Joystick is broken or the controller guides itself during game play. The entire controller must be taken apart. Replace the entire joystick with a new one. Use this guide to replace it. Dirt on the joystick maybe causing the controller to do so. The controller should be taken apart and cleaned with alcohol and coated with fresh lube after cleaning. If problems persists, control stick spring is probably broken. Either the controller is not charging or the battery is not lasting the usual 24 hour life. Try to connect controller directly to console and press the PlayStation button on controller to sync with system, sometimes this fixes the problem.
