How to Sync PS3 Controller

How to Sync PS3 Controller

Being launched back in 2006, Sony’s Play Station has made a huge leap in the gaming industry. With a range of wide variety of games, it is an addition to any fun-loving person no matter where his/ her taste lies.

A Play Station unit consists of the console and a controller. Plus, you will get a USB cable to connect both the devices together. Today, I am going to share how to sync the PS3 controller.

So, let’s get started without blabbering much.

How to Sync PS3 Controller?

Syncing the PS3 controller with the PS box is not a painful task. It can be done within seconds by one or two button presses. But connecting the same to a computer is a complex task that needs a few drivers to get started.

I have divided this article into two parts; the first one deals with regular syncing while the second one walks you through the process of syncing a PS3 controller with your PC.

How to Connect a PS3 Controller

You won’t need any extra software or driver here. The PS3 box (console), controller and the USB cable are the requirements.

Follow the steps given below to sync or connect a PS3 controller.

Step 1: Connect your PS3 controller to the game console via the USB cable comes in the product package.

The charging process will be started as soon as you connect the controller to the console. And, you can see three LEDs blinking in red colour at the top of the controller.

Step 2: Now, you need to turn the controller on. In order to do it, you should press that big PS button placed at the centre of the controller.

You will notice that the blinking has been disappeared, and only one LED is on now, which mean your controller just synced up with the console.

If your controller has Bluetooth facility and you want to get rid of uncomfortable wires, you can move on to next step.

Step 3: To connect the controller to the console, you have to follow the two steps I gave above. And after that, just disconnect the controller by unplugging the USB cable.

There will be no noticeable changes if your controller has a seamless Bluetooth feature. You can play with it even after removing the USB cable from the connection establishes wirelessly via Bluetooth.

You now know how to connect PS3 controller, don’t you?

How to Connect a PS3 Controller to a PC

You just got to know the ordinary syncing process of a PS3 controller. It will be good if we get the same controller to play games on the PC, right? What if I tell you it is possible?

Yes, you can use PS3 controller on PC, but only after carrying out a set of actions.

Read on further to know how to connect the PS3 controller to PC.

Step 1: Connect your controller to the PC using the USB cable. Have you lost the official USB cable? Don’t worry! You can always pick one for $2 from e-commerce stores. Any USB A to Mini USB will serve the purpose.

Windows will install some initial browsers as soon as you plug it into the PC.

Step 2: Now, the adequate drivers are what we need in order to make the controller functional. Plenty of PS3 drivers are available for PC. But here I am going to talk about MotionJoy.

Visit the MotionJoy download page and download the latest version of the driver.

Step 3: Open the zipped file you just downloaded. Don’t run anything within the archive. Instead, make a new folder in any location and extract all the items to it.

Step 4: Whenever the extraction finishes, open the program called “MotioninJoy_071001_signed.” From the program interface, choose Driver Manager tab and select the controller from the Hardware Location area.

Click Load Driver button to download the necessary drivers. Windows may prompt you with an unsigned driver notice, but there’s no harm in going on with the installation.

Step 5: The next step is the configuration of the drivers we just installed.

Better DS3 is a good option to do this. Visit Better DS3 website and download the tool.

Step 6: Again you will get a zipped file. Extract all the items to the folder we created for MotionJoy and run the program named BetterDS3_1.5.3 or similar.

Step 7: This is the crucial step in the entire process of connecting a PS3 controller to your PC. Here, we are going to create a profile using Better DS3.

You will get a window similar to the image, given below.

Then, connect the PS3 controller to your PC. You will see the device name under Connected DS3 Controllers. If you have got a wireless controller, make sure that you connect the controller end (mini USB) before the PC end (USB type A).

You can enable Bluetooth Pairing here if you want to go wireless.

Click the drop-down menu, New and choose XInput from the given options. It’s the best choice to go with a PC game controller.

You will see a new window with several options responsible for customizing your PS3 controller.

Then, click that grey Xbox 360 button and it will show you the mapped controller button. You can customize every single option there including buttons, vibrations, etc.

Once set, click Save Profile.

That’s all. Now, you can use your PS3 controller on your PC without any worries.

The wireless connection is the same except that one option we select, which says Bluetooth Pairing.

Wrapping Up

I hope you have got some valuable info to bag from here. Officially, Windows does not allow us to use a PS3 controller on the computer (that’s not the case of Xbox 360 though). That’s why we need this much steps in the process.

Don’t you know how to sync PS3 controller now? If you have any queries regarding this tutorial, feel free to share the same with us using the comment form down below.

We will get to know the requirements to establish a video call, its benefits, how to disconnect the call, how to ignore a call, how to send snaps while being Online on a video chat and so on! In short, we will be discussing how to use Snapchat in detail!

How to Video Chat on Snapchat:   

Video chat is a great way to establish communication with friends and relatives. Although, we have other apps like Skype for the video chats we all like something extra. Isn't it??

When features like video and audio chats get added to our favourite apps like Snapchat, nothing can be happier than this.

But before we walk you through the steps to initiate a video chat, you need to know the requirements first. So here are the requirements for video chat on Snapchat!

#Requirements for Video Chat on Snapchat:

To start a video call on Snapchat, you need:

  • The first and major requirement is, of course, the Snapchat app. You need to have a Snapchat app installed on your phone. Without that, you can't have a video chat with anyone. Not only you, the person, with whom you want to have a video chat should also have a Snapchat app.
  • The second requirement, both of you need to be online at the moment of video chat. If the person with whom you want to talk isn't online, you can't video chat with them. But you can leave a video message if you want to!
  • Another thing, which you need to have on the compulsory basis is the front or rear camera. Without it, forget about the video calling.
  • Last but not least, the internet connection, of course! Without that, no chances of video calling.

So, once everything is up and ready, it's time to start video calling! Let's see how to do that.

How to Video Chat on Snapchat:

Video chatting on Snap is very easy. It's just similar to any other app. Below steps will tell you how to video chat On Snapchat. Believe me, it's as easy as ABC.

So shall we start with the guide??

Step 1. To start a video call with someone, first, you need to go through your contacts list. Now scroll up and down to find the friend you want to talk in the video call.

Now select the name of that person by tapping on its name. Once the name is selected, you will see a screen similar to the following screen.

Step 2. In the above screenshot, you can see there are multiple options there in the above image. Now there are no special methodology for video chatting or sending the normal text message or any snap.

If you want to send the text message, just type your message in the text field and send it to your friend by tapping the Send button. Or if you want to send any snap(Image) to your friend, just tap the first option, i.e image icon, browse the image from your mobile and send it up to your friend.

Similarly, if you want to call your friend with an audio call, simply tap the phone icon and for video call, you need to tap that camera icon. I've highlighted the camera icon in the below screenshot.

That's how we make a video call on Snapchat. If your friend is online, (S)he can receive the call. If the person to be video-called is not online, you get notified that the person is busy.

Step 3. When your friend is online, he/she will see a screen similar to the following screen.

There you can see the three options in the above screenshot. The first option is a big red cross, which is obviously to ignore the call. The middle option i.e Join is to accept the call. If your friends tap the Join option, he will come live with you on the screen.

The third option is the Watch. If your friend taps the Watch option, he will be able to hear and see you but you can't see the person. This option is good when your friend is angry, doesn't want to talk to you but want to see you apologising.

So to establish a two-sided video chat, the option to be used is Join. 

To disconnect the call, you need to tap the green camera icon   – ciao! If you touch this icon, you will get disconnected but you can still see and hear your friend until he also disconnected the call.

So this how-to video chat on snapchat!

But as I promised I'll tell you how to leave a video message when your friend is offline, here's how to do that.

Open the contact you want to leave a message for, tap and long press the grey camera icon, and record your message. As soon as you will leave the tap, the message will be released, just similar to the Whatsapp voice message.

If you are not happy with the recording, you can drag the recording to the big red cross option! Your message will be deleted.

So, that's it for the guide. You can drop the comment below, in the case of any doubt!

Published

Installing a computer printer, basically, involves two steps. One, installing the software which allows your computer to communicate with the printer and the other one is establishing the connection.

The connection between a printer and the computer can be made via two mediums. One parallel and the other way is via using a USB cable. Most of the printers used in recent time mainly support USB.

If you have an old system, then you will have to use the parallel connections. Since this is the only options provided on old computers.

In today's article, we will let you know the complete step by step guide on how to install a printer for your computer,
So, let's not waste much time and get started with the guide How to install a printer for a computer. 

How to Install a Printer For Your Computer

The guide on how to install a printer contains all the steps that will help you to learn to install the printer. In this guide, we have provided almost all the steps with the screenshot.

But before following the steps, make sure all the cables are properly connected on both ends i.e., the computer and the printer. If it is so, move to the steps given below. And if the cables are not connected, then before following further steps, make sure you do connect them.

In the guide on how to install a printer on Windows, I will let you know all possible ways to install a printer on your computer. First, we will begin with the Printer Wizard. The steps are given below.

Step 1: first of all click on the start button displaying on the taskbar and go to the control panel.

Step 2: In the control panel, pick the category Printers and Other Hardware. Check out the below screenshot I have mentioned.

Step 3: As sooner you click on the Printers and Other Hardware option a new window will pop up. Here you will have to click on the Add a Printer option.

Step 4: When you click on the add a printer option, an Add Printer wizard will pop up. Click the Next button to enter the Local Printer wizard.

Step 5: In the next window, you will be provided with some options. There would be two radio buttons; you have to select the first option that is Local Printer attached to this computer.

Also, make sure the checkbox beneath this radio button i.e., Automatically Detect and Install my Plug and Play Printer is selected. If it is not, click on it. Once done, click Next.

Step 6: In the next step, you will see a New Printer Detection dialogue box along with the message Windows is searching for the new plug and play printers to install. 

If the wizard is unable to detect your printer in the New Printer Detection dialogue box, click Next to install the printer manually.

Step 7: When you click on the Next button, you will see a dialogue box I have mentioned below.

In the Use the Following Port drop-down menu, select the port for the printer to use. Once done, click Next.

LPT1 is recommended. But you can choose any if you want.

Step 8:  In the next window, you will have to select the manufacturer and the model of the printer from the Manufacturers and Printers section. Once done click on Next. 

And if you have Software Disk for the printer, then you will have to select the option Have Disk and insert the disk into your floppy or CD-ROM drive.

Step 9: After you click on the Next button, you will be asked to enter the name of the printer. You will see a dialogue box, similar to the image I have mentioned below.

In the image above, as you can see the name of the printer is highlighted. If you want to edit it or change it, simply remove the previous one and type the name you want. And try to keep the name as short as possible.

And if you want to keep the printer as default, then leave the Yes radio button selected just below the name.

Once done, click Next. 

Step 10: As sooner you click on Next, you will see a new printer sharing dialogue box. If you want to share your printer with other users, then select the radio button, Share name.

This is the name which appears in front of anyone when they select this printer for printing their documents. If you don't want to share the printer, keep the radio button Do not share this printer selected and click Next. 

Step 11: As sooner you click on the next button, you are done. You will see a dialogue box, the Print Test Page. If you want to print a test page from the newly installed printer, keep the radio button selected as yes. And click on Next.

And if you don't want to print a test page, select the radio button No, and then Next.

As sooner you click the Next button, you will see a completion wizard saying, completing the Add Printer Wizard. Simply click Finish.

And you are done!!

This is how to install a printer for your computer. This was the most useful way to install the printer. Another way to install a printer is by using the CD drive.

For this, you will have to establish all the connection as mentioned above and then Insert the CD that came with the printer.

If the CD doesn't start automatically, you will have to go to My computer and open the CD drive. Once done, open the setup.

In case, the CD is not working, or you are facing any issues with the above method I mentioned, you can download drivers as well and install them to the computer.

And you will be able to install the printer on your computer.

These were the three ways to install a printer. I hope you found the guide useful. In the case of any confusion, you can drop the comment below.
