Nope thats a good thing and the only thing would be that they where all connected and not wiggling around in the port. if you give them a jiggle and they dont move then further inspection would be required.

Hey there.
In your case, there is only one real solution: get another controller. You will save both time and money, and you will know that you'll have a working controller. Chances are you will not ever be able to fix that problem, even with soldering.
You could start by browsing ebay:
http://video-games.shop.ebay.com/System-Accessories-/54968/i.html?rt=nc&Platform=Sega%2520Master%2520System&_nkw=sega%20controller&_catref=1&_dmpt=Video_Games_Accessories&_fln=1&_ssov=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282
If you really want to try to spend some time repairing it, that video could help you understand the controller a lot more:

Where could I find a replacement controller port for my Sega Master System, one of the pins is broken, and I would prefer to replace it without cannibalising any of my other consoles.


The best place to look for things like this is eBay. Just search for As-Is Sega Master System on eBay, and see what comes up ( I also just searched for sega master system, and found some cheap consoles that were in working order). Also, another option you might try is see if there were any "controller extensions" made for it. That might give you something to cannibalize to make your new port. Hope this has helped!

I need help with my nintendo dsi xl parental controls i fogot my pin andsercet question what is the master key?


hi there,
the best way out of this is to go to parental conrols in system settings and when it asks "change system settings?" click yes. when it brings up the numeric keypad select i forgot, and tap i forgot again. Now you should be shown a screen with a number at the bottom, this is known as "the inquiry number", next you need to log onto this web page http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and enter the inquiry number you just got. next set the current date in your timzone and click reset code. And now you should be good to go with your dsi parental control free! :) Hope this helps

Problems with my xbox wirelles controller. no connection


If your batteries are good and the you see the green lights circling on the controller that means it is trying to synchronize with the system. Press the little button just to the right or just below the second memory card port on the Xbox to make the machine synch with the controller.

This can mean that the artifacts are problems with the lead free solder and in my experience it will get worse, its usually on games that require heavy graphics then its definately the lead free solder problem and will lead to either 3rrod, e73 or e74 etc etc.

my advice is dont play it to death, keep it cool and if you want it to be ok i would do the x-clamp replacement and possibly re-solder the whole board. this is done by the use of an IR oven similar to what we use, OR you can use a normal heatgun but i dont recommend it because it can cause damage and knock fuses off the mainboard if not used properly.


if you do get it working follow advice below:

in the meantime id play it for an hour a time and make sure its not in any cupboard or anything. getting something like an intercooler can help. We use something called SystemX which cures this type of problem.

See how you go.

Sega Master System Controller Port


sounds like the soldering has come loose a bit over the years this tends to happen if you want there is two options open it up and fix the soldering issue or send it in for repair.

I have a shop and it would be $15 plus return shipping costs to fix the unit.

Controller port


Did the connector on the port break?

You might try some place like:

Otherwise if you want to try to do it yourself, you'll need a very good soldering iron/glue. If the PCB board broke it will be very difficult to place. If the controller simply came loose, open the unit and inspect the damage.

He's right, it is a line, but it's not a big problem. If you keep playing with that wire, eventually that yellow part in your PS will come loose. It took me about 10 min. to fix mine with the same problem, and all I needed was a small philips screwdriver and a soldering iron. I bought my soldering iron for about $16 at Lowe's and it comes with batteries and soldering. First, you need to open your PS: you flip it over, pop those little square plastic covers out (only 6 of them). I used my finger nail to pop them out; now, you'll notice that there's a total of 8 of those square-type things, don't worry about the ones in front corners (right underneath Controller Port 1 and Remote Controller Receiver). Once you do all these you'll find 6 screws, so use your screwdriver to get'em out. Flip your PS over again. Now you'll be able to pop the top cover out, just be careful, it's a little tricky but you'll make it. With the cover out of the way, you can see now the inside of your PS. Try to locate a screw between the two Controller Ports, it'll need to come out. Once you get that screw out of your way, remove the bottom cover carefully; make sure you remove that board thing where the Reset/Power button lays from the cover as well. Now you have a naked PS haha. Flip your PS over locate where the power cable is plugged in (it's like a yellow square-thing). Looking at it from the bottom, try to put some presure on it with your finger and try to move just a little bit and you'll notice that one of the solderings holding the yellow thing together to the green board is cracked loose (if not both). So now it's time to get that soldering iron to work. If I recall, it'll take about 30 to 45 sec. for soldering iron to get to it's working temperature. Once it's ready to work put presure again with your finger to that yellow part and try to solder bond that cracked soldering back together. I did it by heating the soldering touching the green board so it'd hold the yellow part in place. I'm sure you'll do good, just be pacient. Use your finger again to try moving it. Once it doesn't move anymore IT'S DONE. Just get those covers back together, first the bottom one, then the screw between the Controller Ports, and last the top cover with the 6 screws and covers. Hopefully this will work for you as it worked for me.
