Re: L1 button not working

Probabblt a loose bolt in your controller shake it if you hear a sound in there like a rattling then youve got a loose bolt thats stopping the L1 button from getting from the chip in your ps2 controller take the controller apart get the loose bolt and put it back together rember to tighten all the bolts in your controller afterwards ///looking inside a controller is awsome by the way

Hi, I have two Super Nes consoles and 3 controllers and about 8 games. All the games load properly but suddenly the controllers only work on one of the games. I've switched all different combinations...

Well I think that maybe the controller ports are going on the console then thats why> it has nothing to do with the gamepacks they are fine or it might be a coincidense then. Try them on a different SNES to see if it works then if it does

How do u pause on sims 2 PS2

L1 only pauses the movements of the characters. I believe you need to press the actual start button located in the mid-center of your Sony analog controller.

you are going to have to open it up and see if your L1 and L2 touch the proper gold circle on the mother board then put it back together and see if it works.
