PS2 Controllers not Working

Hi, I hadn't had my PS2 for long before the controller stopped working. The cable doesn't look damaged and I've tried putting it into the other port as well as trying a different controller but nothing seems to work. The remote control works ad games can play but the keys on the joypad don't work.

Any ideas?

See if your ps2 controller hub or port is damaged. If any pin is twisted try to get it straight and if you can't fix it, take the console to a service center.

My PS2 controller port stopped working!

Sounds as if it has been dropped .....or an impact to the controller port while one was plugged in. in some cases the in side of the port can become full of dust and dirt causing light rusting creating a loss of connection ...but an impact can break a small chip on the back of the controller port inside the machine , try cleaning out the controller port and check to make sure the metal tabs are clean and un bent.

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
