Some buttons on controller not responding

I have an original PS2 was playing it 2 nites ago, no problems, now I turn it on works ok, except for the only buttons on the controller that will work are Start and X. Playing FF12, and cannot change party members equip etc...
Have tried another controller but that isn't problem, it does the same thing. Have also tried another game and that doesn't change anything same buttons still don't work. Any solutions?

Thank you,

Re: Some buttons on controller not responding

Ask yourself a few questions: Is the PS2 overheated? Was it under any physical contact? Try plugging the PS2 in a different power outlet, then try taking out all controllers and plug one controller in the second player controller spot.

My PS2 is not loading Grand Turirsmo 4!

If your PS2 works fine with most of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them too on your PS2:
  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:6e4cb56.jpg
  3. Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like9d90dc8.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear likedd8fb1a.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

Ps2 problem

Perhaps it is a knock off?

If you bought at a reputable games retailer it should not be or if it came in the pack with the console it should not be a knock off.
Your best option would be to get in contact with SONY or take it to a games store and say you bought a short time ago and it doesn't work with some of your games and see what happens! :)
