That's what happens when you play like an animal.

The same thing happened to me. I opened it and saw that the battery (supposed to be on the center kept in this possition by two plastic pieces) was loose. So it kept touching some circuits amd things. I used a piece of paper :p to keep it on the middle and it worked for about 6 months. When the problem started again I just bought a new one.

mmm,well i guess you are unlucky,if its a few months i'd take them back to the shop if you can

i expect mine to go like that but after a few years of use,although i don't play games like i used to

are they original DualShock 3 or are they 3rd party? i still have my two sixaxis from 2007 and they work almost perfect (the analog sticks are a bit squicky and get stuck forward some times, too much FPS) but my DS3 (my main controller, others for my wife, guests, and while the DS3 is charging) i bought in 2009 still in great shape...
