You'll have to take it apart there a screws in it the problem is they are tri heads they look like a Y you need to get that screwdriver look online you can find them once you have one its a simple fix just take out the screws and gentle take the controller apart at the seams put the pad back in it appropriate spot and put it back together. a simple fix if you have the screwdriver to do it with keep this in a nice spot cause all game consuls are put together this way its to keep you from breaking the warranty.

    actually, it depends on the model of controller. Some of them have Phillips screws and you would need a precision screwdriver that would have a Phillips head. other than that, it is straight forward. The springs that house the R2 buttion might be a bit tricky. So keep that in mind.

R2 button fell off


I've taken apart my controller several times. It can be a little tricky to get it back together. If you're unsure, ask a friend over. An extra set of hands and eyes are always good.
All you'll need to take it apart is a small Phillips head screw driver. (X shaped)

FIFA 11 game wont start (PS3) gives me error code 80010514. All other games work fine. Game works fine in brothers PS3. Never had this problem before. PS3 support says they have had a lot of calls with...


It's eiyther one of two problems:

The first is that FIFA 11 is screwed up due to an EA Sports programming glitch within the game - (see http://www.community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Technical-Help/FIFA-11-Error-80010514/m-p/11614173))

OR

The second is that your PS3 is dying and the laser won't read discs. Which gets progressively worse, or so i've read. - (see http://www.ps3blog.co.za/2008/04/10/ps3-error-80010514-explained/)

I'm getting the same error but my PS3 isn't yet 12 months old, so is going back to the store.

P*ssed that I can't play the new FIFA though!!!!

Something happened when you took it apart. Either you dropped a piece, or the pieces are not lining up properly. Take the controller apart again and double check to make sure that everything will touch the contact points they are supposed to touch as you put it back together again. If it still doesn't work, then you might have accedentally damaged a lead on the little circuit board inside it, and at that point you will probably have to buy a new controller.
