Its possible the connector on the PS2 has come loose on the inside of the unit. The other possibilty is that the connector on the end of the cable of your controller is dirty or loose. If its just the controller connector, try taking a cue tip and some rubbing alcohol and cleaning the connector on both the controller end and the ps2 end, just be sure that you don't turn on the PS2 until the connectors are completely dry. If you use rubbing alcohol it should take less than a couple mins for the alcohol to evaporate

Hi, This is happen because : 1. You may bought a non original controller. 2. You may always engage the vibration function. Sony dual stick controller ( analog stick) has fine cables inside controller. The imitation ones even smaller. While you use the vibration function for long time, it make some cables apart.
Suggestion :- Use only original dual stick controller ( analog stick). Don't engage vibration function for long time - I believe you can reconnect the wires inside controller ( so just fix it yourself) and play..

Vibration malfuction

The controller will still function as normal,
But inside there is a BENT / CROOKED / weighted, spinning mechanism in one of the protruding grips... that often straightens or gets stuck.

The only way to fix it is to take it apart - EASY!
Putting it back together is - NOT!

firstly, spray the pins with a contact cleaner.
