Question about Nintendo GameCube Console

1 Answer

CG controller I've got trouble with my GC controller. There are four holes for the controler in the GC console, when I put the connector in the first one, the game is not responding, the controller doesn't work but if I put it into the second, third and fourth it works well, everything is ok. So could anyone tell me where can be the problem or what should I do? Is there any chance that I could fix it?? :-( Thanks a lot for the answers

Re: CG controller

Look the control jack for anything wrong or different from the other tree jacks. If damaged you would need to replace or repair.

First find a guide to dissasemble the NGC, maybe in youtube, and look for cracked or broken solders on the jack board, if you find any just solder that again and you must be done.

If your problem is a worn connector / jack, and you dont use all the 4 jacks at the same time then you may try the poor guys solution and shift the #1 jack with any of the other non so used jacks or just try to find a replacement googling.

If non working anything of previus then you may have an electronic damage on the port and that is more difficult to solve at home so no more option than letting a technician to solve it.

Good Luck...

How do you use a Gamecube controller on the Wii ?

Assuming the Wii unit is situated vertically, look on the top of the unit. There should be two flaps. Lift them, and you will find plugs for four GameCube controllers and two GameCube memory cards. Plug in the controllers and go.

Bare in mind that only a very small number of Wii games actually use GameCube controllers. The controller slots are primarily for playing GameCube games on the Wii, which the Wii can do right out of the box, provided you have the controllers and memory cards.

Dualshock 3 just blinks with all four lights when i plug it into ps3 slim. reset button does nothing but delay blinking. no way of connecting so i dont know if it is charged or charging

Hello and welcome to Fixya. From what your describing it sounds as if your DualShock3 Controller lost it's bluetooth connection with the PS3. Make sure you plug the controller to the PS3 using the USB to miniUSB cable and hold down the PS button for three seconds to see if this resyncs it. If it does not turn your controller around and you will see a small hole. You will need a paperclip or other small long object and insert it into the hole to reset the controller. Next after pressing the reset button on the controller try the same steps that I provided above again. I can tell you that the four lights blinking slowly means the controller is actively charging. I hope you found this helpful and good luck.

Im trying to get my conrtoller to connect to my ps3/charge and if i predd any buttons on the controller all four lights will go off, right now they are just all on.... its also plugged in to the usb...

You should try resetting the controller. To do this, unplug it from the system and look on the back of the controller. Above the "Sony Wireless Controller" sticker on the back, slightly to the right of a screw-hole you will see a small hole with a button in it. Use a paperclip to press that button to reset the controller.

My SNES was working while i was playing a game, i shut it off to put in a different game, and when i turned it on, it wouldnt work. any suggestions on what to do?

i to love the snes, i suggest to get a wii, softmod it, then install all your favorite snes games on it via wads. all your games will show up as channels on the wii and they play flawlessly. (no lagg) all you need is a classic controller or gc controller

Red button on gamecube controller

This is simple. Just open up the GC controller by unscrewing the screws on the back. When you get to the front, take the buttons out and clean them. If it still doesn't work, that means your button pad is torn and you will have to buy a new controller.
