Re: 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.

My son has a xbox360 and were trying to get xbox live to connect and it wont we had it working just fine on his brothers hes not home so we hooked it up to the other xbox 360 and it wont connect

1 Disconnect all accessories and wired controllers from the Xbox 360.
2 Hold the "Guide" button down for three seconds on any wireless controllers, then respond to the prompt on your television screen to disconnect the controllers from your system.3 turn on the wireless headset by pressing the "Power" button in the center of the earpiece. 4 Press the "Connect" button on the front of your Xbox 360 system. 5 Press the "Connect" button on the wireless headset. The ring of lights around the power button of the Xbox 360 system should spin and blink once. One of the lights should remain lit up, indicating the port number that the headset is using. If you do not see any lights on the system, you may have a faulty wireless headset.6 Press the "Guide" button on your wireless controller to reconnect the controller to the Xbox 360 system. If you are using a wired controller, you can plug it back into the system.7 Press the "Connect" button on the top of your wireless controller to sync the controller with your system. You should see the connection light around the "Guide" button on the controller light up, indicating which port you are connected to. You should also see a corresponding port light in the ring around the power button of your Xbox 360 system 8 Press the "Connect" button on the wireless headset until the port light on the headset matches the light on the controller and Xbox 360 system. For example, if you are the first player, the light for port number one should be lit up on the Xbox system, the controller and the headset. When all lights correspond, your headset should be properly connected.

Feel it and see if it's hot, It may be overheating. If so they have small fans that you plug into the usb port in the front.

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.

if you're trying to play a game saved on an HDD using the USB, it really won't work

Ps2 multi-tap

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
