It sounds like a short in the controller, and the only way to fix it would be to open the controller and make sure there are no shorts across the contacts, which is something that would take a good deal of mechanical expertise. My advice to you would be to either send the controller in for repairs, or just buy a new one.

Gamestop Edge PS2 Wireless controller wont work. New batteries and the square control (router) box just keeps blinking green. I pressed the button for reconnect and it still does nothing I need...


If the light on the controller is flashing then the batteries are still good. There is a small reset button on the receiver that came with the controller. use a needle to reset it while it is still in the ps2. make sure that the ps2 is turned on and the green light is flashing on it. it should blink a few times and then the light on the controller should turn red. once it does then press start and your good to go.
Hope this helps!

Hi there 78 Racer, Press SET button the LED light will start to blink and beep once. Press the square button on the right hand side of the wheel.

I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Remove the CD tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the CD area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for Repair. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com

No color


I had the same problem with a PS2 connected to a small Sanyo TV. To fix it, while the game was playing I pressed a button on the remote control adjacent to an icon that resembles a square with a black dot in the bottom right hand corner. On my remote the button is directly behind the TV/AV button. As you press the button, one press at a time, this takes you through the various video format options available, including PAL, NTSC, Auto etc. When you reach the correct format the colour will return to your game.
In my case, I suspect this button was accidentaly pressed instead of the TV/AV button.
I hope this helps someone else as the problem had driven me mad all day before I stumbled over the solution.

Messed up keys


try hitting the left alt and the left shift button together, then try it out by pressing shift question mark. I had the exact same problem and i think you can alternate between french and english keys by hitting these two buttons together.
