Yes! your right, it's inside of the controller .what you can do is open the controller clean the board by using cotton buds with alcohol or cleaner you will notice accumulated dust preventing the buttons from touching the board you need to remove those.

Controller not detected when contorllers plugged in, asking to insert ps 2 dual shock.


Look at the controller and see if the red light is on in the middle of the controller if it is not press the black rectangle button above the red light. If that dont work then your controller ports on the system might be dirty and need a light cleaning ....or you dont have a ps2 controller you might have a ps1 controller. Hope this helped

Ps2 controller not working


i think i found out why. one of your buttons may be jammed down inside your controller. this might be solved by banging something hard against it, however this solution is only temporary. the better thing to do is take it to a game shop to either get "surgery" or get a new one.

How to check terminals on a dualshock2 ps2 controller


does it stop working?or stopped vibrating?if the vibration stopped then wire connecting to the rotating motor is detached this is the common problem with dual shock because of constant vibration.Solution is to open the controller and connect the loose wire,dust is also a big factor if buttons are already not responding so try also to remove accumulated dust on the button touch board.

Ps2 dual shock2 controller buttons not working


Removed accumulated dust sticking on the board were the buttons touches.use cotton balls with alcohol or use clean damp cloth.If nothing's happen check the cord I'm sure it is twisted badly, open your ps2 use this controller and try to twist back the twisted cord if it stopped sometimes when your twisting it then you have to replaced the cord(make sure that your using the original ps2 controller not imitation)pls. rate

My ps2 anolog dual shock controller wont work!


It could be the PS2 connector port.
1) Try cleaning it. Maybe used compressed air or just blow into the faulty connector port.
2) Something more challenging, is to maybe open up the PS2 and to search for any broken connections between the Ps2 controller port, and the Motherboard of the PS2. Use a phillips #0 or a phillips #1 screwdriver, flip the ps2, you will see all these tiny squares, pull them out using something sharp, and underneath them there will be the screws, also there are some screws located underneath the warranty sticker and another underneath the Info sticker, just probe the surface until you land upon a hole. there you will find the screws. Open the ps2 up and you will spot the connector and search for any broken connections. any broken links can be fixed just by using a soldering iron and some solder.( OPENING UP YOUR PLAYSTATION VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY).
3) IF your ps2 is still under warranty, you can send it back to sony, or one of their many repair centres around the nation( IF U ARE IN THE USA). If in another nation, you can visit sony.com and follow their instructions on how to go about with in warranty repairs
