Ps2 dualshock analog controller not vibrating

My ps2 dualshock analog controller is not vibrating but all buttons are functioning. Even I turned the "vibration ON" in the games I used to play such as NBA live?

    I have two playstation consoles:
    An old first generation PS2 and a slim PS2.

    The Dualshock(2) controllers from my old PS2 do not vibrate on the slim PS2, but vibrates (very good) on the old and thick first generation PS2.

    The Dualshock(2) controller from the slim PS2 does not vibrate on the slim PS2, and vibrates a little on the old PS2.

    Any thoughts?
    Thank you.

Usually, all dualshock controllers malfunction after a year or so. Do not be surprised.

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..

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.

My dualshock 2 controllers analog are very hard. how to fix it

Hi warren111,

When you say hard, did you mean the controllers analog stick is very "stiff" or loose to the point that you can't move the characters onscreen or the characters move involuntarily. If this is your case then you may have to try another PS2 dualshock 2 analog controller in your PS2, If the problem doesn't happen with another controller, then you may consider buying a new PS2 dualshock 2 analog controller since most likely the controller is already defective.

Also try other games, see if the problem only happens with a particular game. If it does then you will have to check the settings of the game, and see if you can adjust the settings of the buttons or analog stick.

If the problem you're having is more with the "comfort" of the controller you're using then you should consider looking at 3rd party controllers for the PS2. One company that makes them is Logitech, they have a line controllers that work for the PS2 there are other companies so check out gaming sites to get reviews on them. But I would suggest though that if you're shopping for a controller because of this reason, you should try to test the controller out in a game shop first. So that you can get a feel of it before buying. If you like the controller and you're comfortable with it then tha's the time you buy it.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
