Portal of power - have you taken out the USB stick?
- have you put in batteries?

If not do this, restart, try again.

How do I do this on the Wii because I've tried so many timesx
Guest said: 13th Dec 2014 | REPORT
Thankyou very much whoever said hold the portal upside down then hold the sync button to it flashes very quickly then press the dongle in the PS3 and it's all done. Also the next time you use it, you don't have to go through it again. Mine didn't come with a quick set up guide so thankyou again. One more thing, I'm using a Wii USB receiver on a PS3 and it works properly.

This may not be the reason. It might just be broken. Mine is. I think.....

My kids are having the same issue. I try to sync it, which will cause the light on the usb and on the portal of power to blink really quickly - then it will go to a slow blinking light.

im trying to use my PS3 Portal for the website it use to work when the first skylanders came out now my Mac is not talking to it for some reasion. any help would be great. i installed it 8 times and nothing. ever since Giants Came out the portal wont work for the website, what does that mean that i have to buy the starter kit all over again?
Guest said: 24th Jan 2013 | REPORT
for some reason, the portal can not be on the floor and does not have to be close to the system...hold the figure over the portal and see if it works instead of sitting it on it, if so thats the spot....almost like looking for a strong signal.

The credics are saying that it's a waste of money because the portal always breaks after the first weak or so...

I recommend getting rechargable batteries for the wireless portal. Regular batteries drain to quickly. I had the same problem. Game saves have nothing to do with the issue.

The portals mood light uses less battery power while not synced. When synced the portal turns off due to low battery power. Using lithium ion batteries have given us longer gameplay.

Mine syncs but every time the game turns on it shuts down the Portal.

My wireless receiver has been lost! All other wireless receivers are $30-35, and I want a cable, but those are $99! Any help wondering what to do? I've beaten the game, but I'm still working on making it poerfect, with all the characters, hats, stars, yadda yadda.

I to was having this problem but it was due to the fact that there were not enough carrots in the fridge and the trout was getting warm. I found it to work better it you take your portal of power and throw it at a large beaver.

Ok just buy a new usb chip all of your data is saved on the system of whatever you r playing your game on

There seem to be a problem with the battery dividers, the batteries do not make enough contact with the terminals due to the T shaped dividers, I carefully removed the dividers from the compartment and put paper in between the batteries just to hold them in place and portal has worked ever since
