Also, the ribbon cable connecting the controller port to the motherboard may have gotten loose so there is no communication between the controllers and the machine.

Sounds as if it has been dropped .....or an impact to the controller port while one was plugged in. in some cases the in side of the port can become full of dust and dirt causing light rusting creating a loss of connection ...but an impact can break a small chip on the back of the controller port inside the machine , try cleaning out the controller port and check to make sure the metal tabs are clean and un bent.

My ps2 does not respond to the control buttons, but shows a picture on the screen


I can think of two problems here.
First, (not trying to insult your intelligence here) make sure the controller is plugged in all the way. If that doesnt help, the controller may be malfunctioning or the controller port inside the console may be malfunctioning (possibly a loose ribbon cable).
Try the controller in both controller ports and if that doesnt work, try a different controller. If that still doesnt resolve your problem, you may need to fix the controller port.
If you feel comfortable opening the console (keep in mind this would void any warranty you might have and could lead to further damage to the console), you might have a look to see if the ribbon cable to the controller port is loose and/or replace the controller port.

My ps2 not responded to my joystick my joystick is work what happen my ps2


The Cable could have a break in it, check to make sure none of the pins in the Controller port are bent and if all else fails you will need to buy a new controller port, but try a different controller before you buy a new controller port

Please help asap!!!!!!!!!!


I would suggest to toggle the "analog" button on and off to see if that fixes the problem. If not then try a different controller. Try it with different games as well(make sure discs are clean!!) If that does not work then your playstation has a malfunction and needs to be repaired if it is worth it to you.
Sorry!! GOOD LUCK!!

Some buttons on controller not responding


Ask yourself a few questions: Is the PS2 overheated? Was it under any physical contact? Try plugging the PS2 in a different power outlet, then try taking out all controllers and plug one controller in the second player controller spot.
