Have connection issues with the Lynxmotion PS2 Controller V3 and an arduino as in its not connecting,

When I turn on the receiver/arduino the receiver light flashed then I turn on the PS2 controller the lights flash once then goes off and the receiver light goes from flashing to on. But no connection.

I can press the analog button on the controller makes the lights flash or stay on on it but still no connection.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Could you post a picture of your connections? You have to make sure data, command, ATT, and CLK pins are all connected.

Check out my blog post to find out why you need these pins.

If nothing works still, post a picture and what code are you using to test.

Hi,

The behavior you mention above is normal. A solid light on the receiver and no light on the PS2 controller means the remote link is established.

Like tronicsos said, it would be best if you could provide a picture and schematic of your connections from the PS2 receiver to the Arduino.

Also, what code are you running on the Arduino to use the PS2 controller/receiver and which library?

The more details you can provide, the better we can help you.

Sincerely,

OK here is exactly what I am trying and I am getting nothing.

Parts
  • Lynxmotion PS2 Controller V3
  • Arduino Uno
  • Computer
Pin layout using ps2 level shifter that came with he controller
  • Data = pin 12
  • CMD = pin 11
  • Att = pin 10
  • Clock = pin 13
  • Power = 5v
  • Gnd = Gnd
1) I plugged my Arduino into the computer it recognizes it and loads it to com 6 (one green light on yellow light on Arduino)
2) Upload Padawan_Body_08_12_14 to the Arduino (successful)
3) Plug in receiver to Arduino (Receiver has two lights one flashing on solid)
4) Turn on the controller, two light flash ones and then go off, flashing light on the receiver stops and turns solid
5) Load up Serial Monitor after a few second a "u" comes on the screen

I press button move sticks nothing on the Serial Monitor

Please help

What version of the PS2 library are you using and what code are you using to test.
