You may need to change the port station. they could be malfunctioning or the cable that goes to it, may be broken. you can order these parts or send it in to get fixed. it is not a big problem.

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.

New ares galaxy wont connect on windows 7

Not sure if it will help everyone, or anyone for that matter, but try going into control panel in area, transer, and changing the port number to 48871 instead of the defualt, also have seen unrestricting firewalls work as well as changing to port 80 but that didnt work for me. Give it a shot if nothing else it just won't connect, but after I switched it it took about 5 seconds to link up. Hope this helps someone = )

I have ipod nano 1st gen and my ipod wont detect by itunes even my explorer using USB 2.0, i have firewire port wall charger when i try to plug it it charge but idont know if it will work to computer cause...

There might be a few issues here:

1. Your ipod software needs to be updated
2. Your usb cord is bad
3. Your usb port is not working properly

Either find someone that has a firewire port and update it via itunes, or use someone elses computer to update your ipod's software.

Pleas fix it ps3 remote

Try this First get a paper clip and push the reset button on the back of the controller while its plugged in to the PS3. The lights should blink, and it will re-pair with your PS3 if you still have it plugged in. It should start charging again and will stop blinking as usual when it's done.
ps3 controller battery is most likely bad or a bad usb port on controller.
Call sony see what they say.

Wont print at all

There are a couple of things to check. First, make sure you are sending the document that you are trying to print to the correct printer. If you have any word processors installed or any Adobe products, you will have what are refered to as "Document Printers" that convert what you are printing to a document compatible with email or other programs. If any of these "Document Printers" selected, then you won't have anything get printed on you printer.

The second thing to check is the port that your computer thinks the printer is connected to. To check this, as long as you are using a Windows Operating System,
  1. Open the window that shows your installed printer(s).
  2. Right click on the printer and select Properties from the drop down menu.
  3. Click on the Ports tab.
  4. See what port is checked and make sure that it is the same as what you have plugged into the computer. The most common ports are LPT1 or USB. The USB ports will say USB001 or such. If one USB port doesn't work, select another one and try printing a test page.
In the future, just as a friendly reminder, when posting a computer related question it helps if you provide what Operating System you are using. This way, anytime someone answers your question, they can tailor the answer to your particular system.

Ps2 controller port wont work

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.
