Re: controller port 1
I had the same problem once, although with controller port 2. What had happened with me is someone had jammed the controller into the port too hard and actually jarred the board inside loose. When I would plug in the controller, it fit ok but wasn't making a good connection inside the machine.
This could also be caused by repeat plugging/unplugging or if a controller was pulled out by someone tripping over a cable or something. I wouldn't recommend opening the system yourself as it will void your warranty, but if this is the issue, it is very easy to fix.
Another possible problem is just a bad controller, try another controller if you have one, if not, plug your current one into port 2.

Hi, on the top of the Wii will be a hidden flap which conceals 4 gamecube controller ports. You will need to buy a memory card which there are two slots for that to store the games. Gamecube memory cards are quite cheap and you can pick them up for between £2 to £10.
Hope that helps.
When these messages keep occurring it means the controller is either broken, damaged or about to die. I had that once with some games. For instance when I got shot and the controller rumbled it paused and said "No controller present".
Try checking other controllers, try cleaning the controller ports. (use a vaccuum to suck out dust out of the controller ports). And make sure no pins inside the controllers plug are bent or broken. if so: carefully bent it straight. Also check if the other end (the slots) aren't broken. They can be a bit wobbly.
If the problem occurs with multiple controllers which you believe aren't defective try the second controller port (I know, most games require the controller to be in Port 1) but maybe the port is broken. Which can be the result of shoving in the controllers to hard.
Also, just a hint: try not to swap controllers or Memory Card once the unit is powered on. Same goes for cables and other accesoiries.
If none of this helps, and you are sure the controllers are OK: get the console itself to either a Sony repairman or the shop you got it from.
Yes this port be changed out on a slim like the fatter PS2 version it is a complicated work and should be done by an expert technician only otherwise the tracks on motherboard will be spoiled. One thing be sure before changing the port you check it if this port is physically damaged then only you can proceed otherwise you please compare the working voltages on all pins with your port 2 and sort out the fault because sometimes +5v supply missing or any diodes connected on port is short which can be the reason for this fault.
There is a problem with the controller port PCB. Either one of the pins have snapped or a component on the Controller port board has broken down. Can be easily replaced with a spare off an auction site. Jon
I had this same problem. Try plug the multi tap into the player 2 port (with a controler in the player 1 port) and so on try different arangement for the controllers (mine worked with the way i wrote). If this doesnt help, a friend of mine had a problem with the contacts in the muti tap (or the controlers), if you are experience you could try open it up and make the contacts stick out a lil more or (more preferably) contact the producer of your multitap they may be able to repair it for a decent fee
