Re: controllers are getting destroyed

If your machine has been dropd . a hard fall can cause the board (( controller port in ps2 )) to crack. had this happen to a few people sometime there controller would work and then nothing ...took a while to figure it out i also too used other controllers with no luck.. but the funny thing was they worked on my machine..So try them on another system if they work then the problem is in the controller port.not a hard thing to replace your self. i can make a how to vid if you need it.. hope this helps

Bought an Original XBox used. Worked great for about 2 days--played KOTOR 1. On the 3rd day, it froze and read that there was a problem reading the disc. Annoyed that the XBox: -originally played...

Unfortunately this is high likely a disc player issue and it will be cheaper for you to purchase a new (old) system then it would be for you to go through the hassle of repair.

As you have already specified you are aware of the pot tweaking and that is the route that might lead you to a solution if you are to try and do it yourself. Another option though also costing money is to purchase just the disc player from ebay and change it out completely. Again, I find Xbox 360 cheap enough at pawn shops or yard sales that you could easliy find a cheap one.

I have given all my original xbox systems to family members already otherwise I would have gaven you one of mind.

Good luck.

I'm currently trying to play heavy rain and at the very beginning when it prompts me to shake the controller it doesn't register, ive googled ten different versions of my question and i get nothing...

Well, it's simple. what kind of controller do you have, and how old is it? the 2 Sony six axis controllers i bought with my ps3 had buttons that stopped working on them. so it is possible if it is an old controller that the sixaxis just simply "went out" BUT when psn does go back up tomorrow download the little big planet demo or pop the game in if you already have it. it uses the sixaxis to move their heads. GTA4 also has sixaxis parts to it. and you can access that in the phone menu while playing the game. But you might just have to buy another controller if yours isn't working. Hope it helps!

Bought a 360 controller and it's not connecting to console

Erm, Your controller is charged correct?
Did you press the manual connect button on the controller (next to the charger port) and on the console? (If it doesn't work I'd take the battery out turn off the console P.S. To completely turn off the console unplug it from the transformer or the wall.) If that doesn't work get a replacement.

Weird lines and shapes when playing Grand theft auto 4

I have the basic 360 that came with nothing. Um this actually did happen with me a few times when I first bought the game. Exept my problem was a little different. 30 or so minutes into playing the game it would come over the side the game was unreadable or dirty. I had just bought the thing from wal-mart so I knew it was neighter. I just went out and bought one from game stop. Game stop seems like the best place to buy games anymore.

Ps3 freezes after start up

Hey guys, same thing happened to me. In case you're looking at this site like I recently had been, I just wanted to post a little update. I bought my PS3 on the Christmas of 2007, and it stopped working after I played an online round of Tekken: Dark Resurrection on July 5. It froze on the wavy part of the introduction of the PS3 system. So what you do is:

1. Press the PS3 "touch" power button and hold it until you hear two buttons "beep"
2. Connect your USB cord to your ps3 controller and press the center button when instructed on the screen.
3. Choose the third choice on the screen which says something about restoring the data (sorry i cant remember i know its the third choice though)
4. When it asks you its question say "Yes." and it will begin the restoring process with the download bar.
5. When its complete it may make you do step 4 once more, so just do it again, or any more times it asks, until it finally restarts properly. ( I had to do it two times)

I hope this helps you guys, it helped me the first day it stopped working!

Totally Wrecked.

sorry man, i know how it feels.
your ps3's disk drive is dirty. try using a lens cleaner CD.
if that does not work, clean all of the dust using compressed air. AND since its not under warranty, go ahead and open it up. use the compressed air to blow allover the ps3's inside. How to open PS3.
If that does not work, your disk drive is bad. either find a replacement Drive online or sell it on eBay.

Controller Problem

most probably the controller's carbon button inside the controller is already worn out and is sticking on the controller's printed circuit board (PCB) there are some replacement carbon button that can be bought for a cheap price


if you are using an analog controller, check if the analog stick is loose in feeling, this might affect the controls as well because good working analog sticks are a little stiff when pushed

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
