    hey guys, long ago I bought a ps2 pad but weeks later it got spoilt, probably cuz of hitting the ground number of times. nyways, recently this time, i bought another pad which mysteriously doesnt work anymore! I was so much more careful with this one so that it doesn't end up like my first one. One day, I tried to play with it n it jus wasn't working. All of a sudden!! Even on other ps2 it don't work. NOTE: The analog part does not light up by itself(RED), but even if i switch it on myself, it wont respond (pad). please help! what can/should I do to fix it????

All my controller buttons dont want to work but the controll looks fine all the buttons click ok its like new but it wont work

Well, there might be several things wrong with your controller. Now, that being said the most likely thing wrong with it is the connectivity. Feel free to just stop reading if any of these steps fix your problem
1. Check that the cord is properly plugged in to the correct port.
2. Take the cord out of your PS2 and check all the connectors (they look like brass strips on the inside of the plug). Are they bent? dirty? do some appear to be missing?
3. If yes, try cleaning with a can of compressed air, then plug back in.
4. Reboot your PS2 then re-plug it in.
5. If none of these things work, or if the light in the center isn't on, then your best bet is to take the controller back to the place of purchase and ask for a refund.

Directional buttons not working on both PS2 controllers

Try them on another playstation 2. If the same problem occurs, then the controllers probably or broken. Did it get banged around a lot? Is the cord ruptured or something?
Hopes this helps!

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 and follow their instructions on how to go about with in warranty repairs
