Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Controllers I am being told that no Dualshock controller is plugged in even though a Dualshock is plugged in and the red light on the controller is on. At first the problem was intermittent but now I can't load games at all. Is there a problem with the Playstation or the controller? Can I put this problem right by myself or will I need to replace/repair the faulty part?

The wires of your controller maybe faulty.

I suggest that you must have the controller repaired by someone who specializes on game console repair (not just by someone who knows controllers). Some problems may require you to use a soldering iron to remove the faulty parts and replace it with new ones or a multi-tester for testing and removing certain segments of the cable if there is wire problem. Chances are you could get other working parts damaged or hurt yourself, which is not your goal.

Have you charged it? If you have plugged it in and no lights blink you may have a defective controller. If so check with Sony support/

My dualshock 3 is malfunctioning badly. Many times when I'm using the L2 trigger, it activates commands issued to the L1 button or the directional pad. How do I fix this issue?


I have had the same issue, except my issue is when I press L3 (left joystick pop in), it would malfunction the entire left side of my controller (L2, L1, and all the d-pad arrows). There are, unfortunately, very few 'good' solutions to this. The problem can lie in one of 3 different things: your controller's bluetooth is dying, your ps3 controller-receiver (its also a bluetooth chip) is dying, or both (that was the case with me). I had 2 controllers doing that, and I sent my ps3 to Sony to have it repaired (its free with a warranty, the whole process took 2 to 3 weeks) cuz they said the bluetooth receiver for the controllers (not for mic) was dying/dead. When I got my ps3 back, one of my controllers worked perfectly, and the other one (red dualshock 3, model number cechzc2u) was still malfunctioning. What Sony did was replace my ps3 motherboard. I plan to buy another controller, and save the receipt this time.

If you dont have a warranty, Sony will fix your ps3 for around $110-150, and when you get it back, it will come with a 90 day limited-warranty in case it wasn't fixed properly.

A TEMPORARY fix is to buy an aftermarket usb-plug controller, which runs on batteries and the plug goes into one of your usb slots. The problem with this, tho, is all of the aftermarket controllers have their own problems/design flaws, or unconfortable/not durable.

good luck, and I hope I helped :)

Juiced 2 wont recognise my logitech precision controller


Most likely Becuase it isn't a dualshock controller. Or if the game is on the PS3 and your using a PS2 controller. But sometimes you may use PS2 controllers on the PS3. but sometimes some games won't let you use the controller do to the lack of usage of the dualshock controller. I hope this helps

Hey on my dualshock 2 controller, one of the analog sticks, the left one to be specific is sticking, its not like I've had it for a long time i got it after Christmas 2010.


If you purchased new or received as a gift, take it back and exchange. Many stores will trade 1 for 1 even without receipt, but no refund without one. Try Walmart or Target. Call ahead if you're unsure. Sooner is better though.

Dualshock 3 battery is not charging


Have same issue. Contollers only 2 month old and stopped holding a charge. The controllers flash 'dead battery' when switched on, if I plug up the charge lead they flash to say charging, and after 10mins or so they stop flashing. But no charge in battery. both my controllers have been charged less than 10/15 times.
This fault seems to have come about after the latest system update?
I think you should contact Sony.

My dualshock 2 controllers analog are very hard. how to fix it


Hi warren111,

When you say hard, did you mean the controllers analog stick is very "stiff" or loose to the point that you can't move the characters onscreen or the characters move involuntarily. If this is your case then you may have to try another PS2 dualshock 2 analog controller in your PS2, If the problem doesn't happen with another controller, then you may consider buying a new PS2 dualshock 2 analog controller since most likely the controller is already defective.

Also try other games, see if the problem only happens with a particular game. If it does then you will have to check the settings of the game, and see if you can adjust the settings of the buttons or analog stick.

If the problem you're having is more with the "comfort" of the controller you're using then you should consider looking at 3rd party controllers for the PS2. One company that makes them is Logitech, they have a line controllers that work for the PS2 there are other companies so check out gaming sites to get reviews on them. But I would suggest though that if you're shopping for a controller because of this reason, you should try to test the controller out in a game shop first. So that you can get a feel of it before buying. If you like the controller and you're comfortable with it then tha's the time you buy it.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Usually, all dualshock controllers malfunction after a year or so. Do not be surprised.
