I don't think you can. but if you go to here you can try and get it RMA, which means, you send them the item, and they'll send you a brand new one for free. but they might charge S and H.

How to setup online gamming

You need to have a wired connection. Plug one end of a ethernet (cat5/cat6) into one of your router's ports. Plug the other into the back of the PS2. You will have to sign up for a free Playstation Network account.

Since its very risky and very tough for a person who is not having a knowledge of be able to repair it you should know soldering ..a elecronic device know as soldering machine comes through which you can solder all the braked wires.....if you remember where the wires were before, you can do it..just buy a soldering machine ,flux ,and soder wire to fix the wire ..

a flux is a chemical cleaning agent which facilitates soldering, brazing, and welding by removing oxidation from the metals to be joined.
Soldering is a process in which two or more metal items are joined together by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint, the filler metal having a relatively low melting point. Soft soldering is characterized by the melting point of the filler metal, which is below 400 °C.[1] The filler metal used in the process is called solder.
Soldering is distinguished from brazing by use of a lower melting-temperature filler metal; it is distinguished from welding by the base metals not being melted during the joining process. In a soldering process, heat is applied to the parts to be joined, causing the solder to melt and be drawn into the joint by capillary action and to bond to the materials to be joined by wetting action. After the metal cools, the resulting joints are not as strong as the base metal, but have adequate strength, electrical conductivity, and water-tightness for many use
It will be highly appreciated if you could take a minute and provide your feedback..

When i connect my ps2 controller, it wont respond but the red light appears and i havent broken it. how can i fix it

Even if it looks fine, i might still be broken. In this case, i'm guessing one or more of the contact pins in the connector of the PS2 controler, or the PS2 itself has broken off, of had just too much dirt and grime to give contact to the controller completely. So start by examining both the controller's connector, and the PS2's connector and seeing if everything is ok or not. If everything seems fine, ask a friend or family member to lend you a spare controller to test for a few hours. If the other controller they lent you does the same thing, then the PS2 is the problem, and the connector is either broken or the soldering on it that links it to the PS2's main board is broken. If the lent controller works fine, then your controller is broken, and if the pins are all OK, then some soldering broken inside the controller itself. If you hear some ratteling on the controller, its usually a good sign of solder breaking off. In which case you can try to open the controller and resolder the broken contact, but if you do not own a soldering gun and/or have no clue how to solder electronics, i suggest taking it to your local technician and have him resolder it.

Ps2 dualshock 2 connector plug has a total of 8 pins

Even I noticed the same and checked others. Yes its normal. 
But I am facing a problem connecting the controller. Does it have to press tightly because sometimes it gets loose?

I want to splice a ps2 contoller with an xbox plug, so i can play my xbox with the comfort of my ps2 controller. but my ps2 controller has 8 wires and xbox only has 5 wires, so i need to get a wiring...

As far i know, that is not possible to splice a PS2 controller with an XBOX. As you said they have different wiring sets, so I highly doubt it will work.

How to connect mc2 racing wheel to ps2

The MC2 wheel should have a wire with several connectors on the end. One of the connectors should be identical to a PS2 controller connector. Use this instead of the controller.
My MC2 did not work at first. It is not the wheels fault! PS2 steering wheels are powered, a fuse often goes out in the PS2. Regular controllers will work, but anything powered will not.
Controller rumble requires power as well. If the rumble no longer works on the controller then the wheel will not work either.

My ps2 anolog dual shock controller wont work!

It could be the PS2 connector port.
1) Try cleaning it. Maybe used compressed air or just blow into the faulty connector port.
2) Something more challenging, is to maybe open up the PS2 and to search for any broken connections between the Ps2 controller port, and the Motherboard of the PS2. Use a phillips #0 or a phillips #1 screwdriver, flip the ps2, you will see all these tiny squares, pull them out using something sharp, and underneath them there will be the screws, also there are some screws located underneath the warranty sticker and another underneath the Info sticker, just probe the surface until you land upon a hole. there you will find the screws. Open the ps2 up and you will spot the connector and search for any broken connections. any broken links can be fixed just by using a soldering iron and some solder.( OPENING UP YOUR PLAYSTATION VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY).
3) IF your ps2 is still under warranty, you can send it back to sony, or one of their many repair centres around the nation( IF U ARE IN THE USA). If in another nation, you can visit and follow their instructions on how to go about with in warranty repairs
