Okay, here's the problem. I need to replace my controller, and I have two unused ones, but when I plug it in to the console, the charging lights just blink, and it won't assign (or whatever the term is). What the hell?
:really?:

Leave them plugged in and play till they're charged (steady red light.)

Or just plug them into your computers USB port while you arent playing just to charge it. I havent tried that but I dont see why it wouldnt work.

are you pressing the PS button while plugged in? Pretty sure it continues to blink until charged.

There's a tiny hole on the underside with a reset button. Try pushing that with a pin.

I've tried the reset, leaving it plugged in overnight, plus controllers are brand new. I heard one person mention something about doing a system restore, but I don't want to attempt that unless I know both how to do it properly, and that I have no other option. I really don't wanna risk losing the stuff I have saved.
