I would suggest buying a new controller if you want to skip the hassle of trying to fix this one, but if you insist on keeping this controller, then there could be a way to fix it. First try your best to smoothly trace the joystick around in a circle, and see if that unsticks it. If this doesn't work, apart from buying a new controller the only other thing to do would be to open the controller up and put lubricant on the bottom of the joystick, this will most likely work, but you might damage your controller in the process.
Most likely Becuase it isn't a dualshock controller. Or if the game is on the PS3 and your using a PS2 controller. But sometimes you may use PS2 controllers on the PS3. but sometimes some games won't let you use the controller do to the lack of usage of the dualshock controller. I hope this helps
The pinout is as follows when looking into the cable like this;
__________________ 1 ' * * * ' * * * ' * * * ' 9 \_________________/
Pin Name Description 1 DATA Data 2 CMD Command 3 +7.6V Dualshock and Dualshock 2 uses this for powering vibro-motors. Voltage on PS2 is 7.6V, however many sites says it's 9V. But it will work on 9V too. 4 GND Ground 5 VCC Vcc 6 ATT ATT select 7 CLK Clock 8 N/C Not connected 9 ACK Acknowledge
Hi a lot pf people get confused over this button but you know the two thumb controls that you can turn in all directions the round controls well you can press these down the left ball is L3 and the right ball is R3 so press the ball down and thats the button your looking for.
try to open it and press the key that are not functioning,, if it doesnt work maybe its the time for you to buy a ribbon for your joystick,,, you can use your old joystick that are not functioning and substitute them to the one you are using,,,, if you dont have that try asking your friend if they had a ruined controller... mind you that this only works for the original controller not for generic.... generic controller are disposable... once one key is not functioning you cannot expect to work that key again,,,
When you say hard, did you mean the controllers analog stick is very "stiff" or loose to the point that you can't move the characters onscreen or the characters move involuntarily. If this is your case then you may have to try another PS2 dualshock 2 analog controller in your PS2, If the problem doesn't happen with another controller, then you may consider buying a new PS2 dualshock 2 analog controller since most likely the controller is already defective.
Also try other games, see if the problem only happens with a particular game. If it does then you will have to check the settings of the game, and see if you can adjust the settings of the buttons or analog stick.
If the problem you're having is more with the "comfort" of the controller you're using then you should consider looking at 3rd party controllers for the PS2. One company that makes them is Logitech, they have a line controllers that work for the PS2 there are other companies so check out gaming sites to get reviews on them. But I would suggest though that if you're shopping for a controller because of this reason, you should try to test the controller out in a game shop first. So that you can get a feel of it before buying. If you like the controller and you're comfortable with it then tha's the time you buy it.
