Exclamation USB Ports in my PS3 not working

Has anyone else's PS3 had this issue? Neither of the USB ports on my PS3 work anymore, they haven't for quite some time now.

That's weird. How long have you had it? I'd give Sony a call to see what they say, or if it's still got a guarantee on it, take it back to the store. My PS3 is the original 80GB, and hasn't had any problems.

I don't know exactly what the model is called but it is the one that sucks the disk in instead of you putting it on a disk tray. I think it's the PS3 slim.

I got it on Christmas 2010 but the USB ports I don't think have worked for a year or more. I just charge the remotes on my laptop now, but I wanted to get a Mic for the PS3 which I believe you have to plug into the USB ports on the system.

it's probably the dust accumulated around the USB port. Try cleaning with Q-tips and using isoprophyl (damp). I did use this method for my PS2 usb ports as well last time to clean up.

if not working, I guess you should contact Sony Customer Support 1-800-345-SONY

Hi Brandon, ive had this issue before with my Xbox.. It was annoying because was trying to charge my phone with it. I came to find out that it wasn't my console but it was the cord. it had a short in it causing it to not receive the energy from the console, I got a new cord and its working wonders!

hope this helped.

~Love~

Thank you, but I tried that already. It won't charge any device with any USB cable.

Then I tried eloratings' Q-tip suggestion but that didn't do it either. So I dialed Sony's customer support for PlayStation number and there was basically just this automated voice telling me to go to the website. And now I see why Sony's customer service (or lack thereof) is so infamous. So much for me getting a mic for my PS3 unless they have a model you can plug into the controller.
