Cannot connect move controllers to ps3 after psvr?

Feb 7, 2021
So I bought psvr first and a ps3 eye camera for move controls second. For the life of me, I can't get these dang things to connect to a ps3. Yes, I've done the reset button like every online instruction tells me to. Yes, I've forgotten devices on ps4. I've tried dozens of cables. I've done every combination of system off, plug in cables, and pressing the PlayStation button. The charging light never blinks. The error light comes on when I try to press the PlayStation button. I know the ps4 refuses to let you charge or turn on the controller(for the first time at least) without it being plugged into the ps4. I don't know if that screwed up the move controller internally or something. I know the controllers work, I use them on VR all the time. What can I do? I bought a camera and portal 2 DLC just to do this. I don't want to track down never used brand new move controllers.
