Why is my Nintendo 64 controller not working?

Well it might be that the controller ports might be loose or broken so you could find some one that repairs old consoles to have a look to see what the problem is then.

No vibration in the analog controller but the vibration is on

The little motor inside would have a issue you can try to chec k this by hooking it up to another system and see the it does not work you can fix this by replacing the little motor the creates the vibration or buy a new joystick

Playstation 3 turns on then immediately starts blinking red

please, try using an advanced test on coolers to clean it from all dust :
  1. turn the ON/OFF switch behind the system OFF.
  2. hold the eject button
  3. turn the ON/OFF switch behind the system ON while you HOLD THE EJECT BUTTON.
  4. it will turn you coolers at maximus speed for a while, might help .
else,contact Sony support centre for possible hardware issues checking, certainly it's a problem with your internal hardware.

I think it's just down to second controllers of any type, so make sure they're unplugged.
Hence why on your main controller you can't seem to press red or green.

You need to be a little more specific. What do you mean by they won't hook in?
