Hey,

I'm just getting into EE and pretty much don't know anything at all, but I'd like to disable bluetooth on the PS3 controller(I got a Sixaxis model). Problem is, I have no idea how the board is broadcasting it out, all I see are resisters and such have no idea how to cut the power to the bluetooth transmitter. This has gotta be a cakewalk to anyone who isn't me tongue.gif

Been a little while since I looked at the Controller board, but I'm 95% sure it's this model: MSU PP4.0 5 (Six-Axis, Old 'original version' board with 3 leg POTs)

Thanks!

Yeah it's somewhat confusing. I don't know if the PS3 reads the controller only via bluetooth for registration, or if it can use the usb interface. I know if I plug in my controller to my PC and press the PS button there is a chance that it will start searching for the PS3 so it can register itself with it(instead of just staying connected to my PC via USB, very annoying).

Fortunately I don't care, I just want a controller that will work 100% with my PC without any extra crap like always searching for a PS3.

Can someone PLEASE point out which parts of the controller board I have to dismantle to disable bluetooth?

IPB Image
that looks like the bluetooth modual but i have never dont any thing with a ps3 controller and i dont have one atm as my ps3 is dead and a friend is get use of my controllers
i would as it has to be there though seen as that looks like a generic blue tooth adapter and has an aerial i would say its the right thing

i cant see the advantage to have this removed my self and i have no idea how the controller will react with it gone

:EDIT:

ok looked a bit more in to it and it looks like its an unofficial board above

IPB Image
i would say it has to be this part but i am in no way shore of this and still have no idea how this will affect the board if i was you i wouldnt remove it as it the risk will out way the benafits but the 1st bard there i dont see much risk for

sorry i cant help any more

Sweet, thanks Niai.

I'm a little busy this week but I've got my PS3 controller sitting right here so I'll see if I can't find a way take off one of those components. If it goes well I'll let everyone know, and if it goes sour I'll make sure to let everyone know tongue.gif

I don't know if this is the driver I have for it, but a link at any rate

Unlike the 360 controllers, you don't need to buy anymore M$ products (like a wireless receiver) to get the paddle working on the PC, just a usb cord. Funny how ˘ony made their controller work almost out of the box on XP while MS's doesn't. Too bad Sony still sucks sad.gif

Anyway I'll let you know how it goes

There are 3rd party controllers that are strictly WIRED USB only, for the PS3.
Alternatively there is a USB adapter for PS2 controllers to be used with the PS3 and PC

Depending on the brand and model of adapter, there are some adapters uses the analog button on the PS2 as the Home (or PS) button or have a Home button located on the adapter. Most cheaper adapters offer no Home (or PS) button. If you decide to go this route, do your home work first.
