Intec Wired Controller for PS2 (need interior photo)

You could just connect random wires and see what happens. Think of it as a nice electronic puzzle.

If your ps2 controllers aren't vibrating anymore then this could be the fix that you were waiting for.

WARNING: Make sure that 1) Its not your controller that is broken, test it in a machine that does have vibration. 2) Make sure that the vibration option is turned ON in your games

If you are sure that your controllers aren't broken, then you may have blown a fuse inside your ps2 on your mainboard.

To fix it you have to remove a blown fuse from the ps2 mainboard and either put a new fuse there or replace it with a piece of single strand wire. The point is fairly small so you need a fine tip soldering iron and a single strand of wire. It may be best to get someone who is good at soldering to do this fix for you:

I take no responsibility for anyone breaking their ps2 when performing this fix. All I know is that i've done it and it worked a treat!

You will need;

1) A fine tip soldering iron and some thin solder.
2) A single strand piece of wire, something thin like kynar or enameled wire.
3) A game with vibration function to test the ps2 afterwards.
4) A controller that works with vibration.

Between the power supply connector and the PS9 fuse there is a small black square with 2 silver prongs on the left hand side. This featured on my mainboard as well, and I was able to locate the correct / broken fuse using a multimeter. Look for a fuse with S7 on the top near here, and check for continuity, If there is none then thats the one! One last thing before it goes into full detail;

Check the track between the black square with the silver prongs and the broken fuse, if its on the same track then you can attatch one end of the wire to that prong that is on the same track, and the other side to the end of the fuse opposite of the black square with silver prongs *

This will take bout 10 mins to do - start to finish.

Below tells you how to do it

Below is a description on where and what to look for i.e. the fuse, and how to repair it.

1. I have a V5 PS2

2. Take the PS2 apart.

3. Remove the Power Supply motherboard.

4. After removing the Power Supply Board, you will need to remove the metal shroud and expose the entire PS2 Motherboard.

5. Once you have done this look around the connector for the Power supply board on the PS2 mother board. You will see a number (maybe around 4 of them all located within 2 inches of the Power supply connector) of fuses with "S7" written on it.

6. The one you are looking for has the text "PS9" written on the motherboard next to it.

7. Check it with a multi-meter, for continuity, there will none. If you are not sure, you can check all of them, when the buzzing on multi-meter stops, that's the one.

8. To repair it, use a strand of wire, possibly from an old extension cable or something, but only one strand. Solder it on both sides of the fuse in order to close the connection.

9. Reassemble the PS2.

10. Boot up and play your game, vibration is back.

Hope This Helps

PS2 black console does not communicate with controllers

Sounds like you have wireless Controllers. Be sure your batteries are good on the Controller and the controller is turned on, LED should light. Plug the receiver into the controller jack, and it should light up at least one LED. If you have channel number selector, set it to the same number on the controllers, channel selector.

If old wired controllers will work, then you have dud wireless controllers. I know that cheap poor quality wireless controllers exist out there. You may have a dud. I also know that sometimessomething kills the controller ports on the PS2. The only way to know is to hook a wired controller you know works into the port to see if the port is good or bad.

I would like to know how to chip my ps2

unless your a competant electrician-electronics engineer.
Or had experience, with soldering connections to an electronic PCB. i,d recommend that you don,t attempt this.
The PS2 Mods, usually have around 19 plus individual wires to solder, with some very precise soldering work involved.
My suggestion for you, would be to look at purchasing a boot-cd.
if you search the internet, for an item called swap-magic.
this will enable you to play backup games, without the need for a mod-chip fitted. and also will not void any warranty/guarantee on your console. alternatively, is to take into a shop or professional to fit. estimated Cost will be around £70 UK. $150 US.

Playing burnt disks in my ps2

You need a mod chip. Search google for ps2 mod chips. This is a VERY VERY difficult process, in fact you'de be hard pressed to even find a tech willing to take on the job of soldering all the wires. When all is said and done the inside of your PS2 will look like a spiders web of wires. My best suggestion to you is to buy an already modded one. You are warned, unless you are an expert with a soldering iron and understand electronics very well don't attempt this.
