Electricuting ps2 controllers

My ps2 has been wrecking controllers like crazy. Twice already I have bought new controllers. But every time I go and plug one in ,when the game starts the controller electricutes me. Then some of the buttens won't work. Like today i was using the controller perfectl, and a few hours later when I got back on to play it electricuted me. Then two of the buttons stopped working. What is wrong with my ps2 and what can I do to fix it?

Re: electricuting ps2 controllers

First I would like to say wow. Thats horrible.
This is a result of a BAD ps2.
Call up sony, threaten them with a lawsuit.
They will abolutely fix it for free, and may even upgrade you.
This is dangerous, and if it happens to the wrong people sony wouldget a lawsuit on their heads.
So call them up, you'll be glad you did.
Congrats, you are lucky. :P

I just bought two used games (discs are in pretty like new condition) and my ps2 will not read these discs. I put in games I already have and it reads fine (disc condition is worse than the two I just...

My friend, i guess theres no other way to help the situation other that wiping the discs with some kliinex, and if its still not working try to get one of those cds that cleans the lens of ur ps2.

Otherwise, just give up those cds, and buy new ones :D
Hope i've been like a help to you :)

When we plug our control in the slot the system starts going crazy. looks like the control is going up and down real fast!

hi, the problem you are having is going to be with the control or the control port on the ps2 what you need to do is either try another pad or try your pad in another ps1 or ps2 this way you would find out if the pad was at fault or the ps2 was at fault.

The chances are changing the pad would solve your problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Start a DVD, then stop playback. Clear "resume play" (press stop twice), goto the Control Panel, the select SETUP, then ADVANCED SETUP. Select PARENTAL CONTROL, then press Select. Enter the number 7444.the old password is clear, now you can set a new one and change the rating.
