Has anyone had any problems with the usb ports? One of my usb ports is not working I do not know what happened to it. How do I get it to work?

They use to work cause I would use one to charge my ps3 controller and the other to charge my iphone now only one works. Please help.

Try a SMC reset, and if that doesn't work, also reset the PRAM. If neither one restores the port, it's likely the port is dead. It may have died from drawing too much current through it - like from your PS3 controller.
