USB Port Problems

My husband and I have two Playstation 2's. My keyboard has been having issues lately (it'll stop working and/or the letter will be stuck and repeat) we believe it is a USB Port Issue.

We believe it is a USB Port issue since we have traded the keyboards/adapter/cables from the working PS2 port to the other PS2 port and the same issue presents itself. The keyboard/adapter/cables from the non-working PS2 was traded with the working PS2 port and the keyboard will then work properly.

Is there anyway to fix this issue? I have tried cleaning the port.

Re: USB Port Problems

Hi Jen Storm,

It is probably dirty on the inside. My guess is that Dust has built up on the motherboard and some moisture in the air has turned it to a conductive dust. This will casue a probably like you are seeing. Either Clean it up real good yourself or send it to a repair shopp. If you are looking for arepair Shop, Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen, and Click on "Video Game Consoles" Pick a good Repair shop in your Area, or Nation.

One of my usb ports on my ps3 slim stopped working

Your usb port might have stopped working, but you can still use it to charge other devices like phones, mp3,etc. However, if the damaged port cannot even charge a device, there is nothing you can do apart from managing the other ports. On the other hand, if the port can still charge devices but cannot detect them, you just have to manage the other hub, and use the damaged on to charge only, okay.

PS3 USB ports won't work

All I could say is have a person who is really smart with technology take your Ps3 aapart and check the diodes on your fuse board (green plate that has a buncha little things on it). check to see if your diodes could be burnt or possobly loose. unless you can take it apart but have troubles putting it back together i wouldent try it. have a really smart person fix it. not a scientist or some guy from a company...justi make sure they no wat they are doing. I messed up my USBs by having a short in my keyboard. it tells me to plug in my controler but It wont read my controlers. theres a 92% chance its somthing wrong with my USB ports. I hope this helps you out.
