I got this buggy controller, I think it has some sort of conection problem with the PS3.

Basily what happens sometimes (around 1-50ish times) I press a button my controller, for example R1 to fire,instead of firing, a random action e.g. changing weapon, reloading etc. happens. I'ts really starting to bug me, because I have misplaced my working controller, so I'm stuck with this one! I know that It is not an game bug because the same thing happend to me when I used to play COD.

I try to take really good care of my controllers too!

Please help me fix this issue, as I don't really fancy buying a new controller! :/

If you don't want to buy a new or used one, then suggest you start unscrewing it and look inside. maybe there's a dead gecko in there.
Get some cotton buds and alcohol and clean up every thing you can see and just maybe you can fix the shorting that is happening.

Hahaha, That's a good way to look at it.

Thank's for the help! I might give it a go when I find my good controller.

Don't go in solo or thinking you are on your own
Just check out a few sites on youtube first and you should have a better idea before you delve in.
