Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Did any PS2's come without usb connectors?

The reason I ask is that I have just purchased Singstar for the kids and the usb connector for the microphone will not actually fit into the usb slots.

There seems to be a plastic "blocker" inside the usb slots that prevent insertion.

Could somebody please help?

Thanks,

John

    Tried that with no luck.

    The black plastic "blockers" look like they are meant to be pulled out, but I don't want to wreck the machine by trying. Looking inside the usb connector on the PS2, I cannot see the 4 or 5 pins that go into the usb plug of the microphones.

Try spining the plug on the microphone around!

I purchased an emachines a few years ago but continued to use the keyboard that I was familiar with. It is now worn. I have installed the new emachines keyboard and nothing happens...no lights come...


Did the old keyboard plug into a PS2 keyboard socket (round purple connector) or into a USB port (flat rectangular connector)? Similarly, what type of connector is the new keyboard?
If it is the round PS2 connector you may have connected into the green PS2 mouse socket instead of the purple keyboard socket. Although the sockets are similar, they work differently.
If it is USB, then try moving it to a different USB port.
Try the keyboard on another PC.
If you cannot get it to work then replacement keyboards are very cheap.

I recently purchased a PS3 slim and I'm trying to set it up but the controller won't connect. It just flashes it's 4 red lights then stops. I'm using a PS2 connector cable. What do I do?


Huh? It's a wireless device that doesn't use a connector cable nevertheless a PS2 cable. All it needs is a standard USB cable with the connector that fits. Didn't your PS3 come with one of these? Mine did. I think what's happening with your controller, though, is that it needs to be charged... .with the USB cable... connected to the front of the unit.

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

My dell sk8110 keyboard has a round purple connector plug that fit my old computer. My new computer has only USB ports. How can I connect my keyboard to the new computer?

The round purple connector is refered to as "PS/2" type connector. You can find an adapter that converts PS/2 to USB connector. The above link was just to show what I was refering to. Hope this helps.

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 sony.com and follow their instructions on how to go about with in warranty repairs

My mouse doesn't move but keyboard works.


What type of mouse do you use? USB or PS2 connector mouse.? If you're using usb connector mouse, change it to PS2 connector mouse. Start your pc/laptop. When you're in the OS, plug out the PS2 mouse and then plug in the usb connector mouse. Restart you pc/laptop. Is it ok now?
