The main reason i would think is the game is scratched or your laser within your PS2 is weak. It's old&you might need to get it repaired. I had the same problem but it was only $10 to get it repaired. For your controller, is it the controller port that is damaged or the controller itself.

PS 2 new and old games keep freezing


It needs a new laser... it's a pretty common issue with older PS2s. The lasers simply eventually wear out after time. You can get a new laser for the older PS2s at the following website:

Can't pair it with controller. I bought a white ps3 controller from hong kong. it will turn the system on but thats it, no buttons work. At first I thought it was because the controller was from overseas,...


if the ps3 reads ps2 games then it's a 60 gig,and has 4 usb ports rather than 2...if the controller works on a buddies machine and the machine freezes,it probly needs a service.

Does the system work normally on ps2 games?
If it doesn't,then it sounds like the ports where you plug the controllers into is bad.try cleaning out the ports and try again.

My ps2 is saying no controller is detected when it is plugged in but only on certain games. why?


You probably don't have the right kind of controller. Some games are picky when it comes to what controller you use. As I don't know which games you are talking about, I can't recommend a controller.

Controller problems


Have you gone back and tried that game again? And were you using one (or both) of the two sticks to move in that game, or were you using the directional pad.

The dual shock controllers on the PS2 have a small, easily overlooked button between the two sticks. It has a red light directly above it. If you push that button, the light will switch on and off. When the light is on, you can use the sticks in pressure sensitive mode. For example, if you push the stick a little, your character may walk, but if you push it further in a direction he will run instead. It's used differently in different games. But certain games won't operate unless that feature is either on or off (again, it varies by game).

My guess is that the button was accidentally pressed while you were playing, and suddenly the controller didn't work. But when you switched games, most games will turn the light on when they start up, if they need it, so the problem corrected itself.
