Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Hello just bought a secondhand PS2 slim, and have just found out the first port that you use to plug in the controller in to does not seem to work. I have 2 genuine PS1 comtrollers with sticks, and on both the power light turns itself on and off and this causes the games not to work, with either message "plug in controller" or when it says "pres start" I can not. I have hoovered the ports out but it still plays up. Any ideas?

I know that ps1 controllers could be used for extra players on my model, but not as the main controller. If you have any friends who would have an old ps2 controller, try that. If not bring the Playstation to a game shop like gamestop and see if they will let your try to plug in a used ps2 controller to see if that will work. Good luck and hop i could help, Sean

I ask if the ps2 slim is best quality than ps2 not slim


Hello, the Slim version bring some technical improvements, but the overall game quality is pretty the same. The Slim is smaller and lighter (about 1/4 of the size of its phatty predecessor) in fact. It also has greatly enhanced online gaming capabilities due to the presence of a new Ethernet port, network connection, and phone line. Hope this helps, good luck, Peter

Same Problem


If you mean only one of it's ports work, there is a little switch on it that allows 2 player or 2-4 player that you have to toggle.
If you mean it only works if you plug it into the 1st player/2nd player slot on the PS2 itself, then you need to post more information

PS2 Slim Controller Port 1 Not Working..change out??


Yes this port be changed out on a slim like the fatter PS2 version it is a complicated work and should be done by an expert technician only otherwise the tracks on motherboard will be spoiled.
One thing be sure before changing the port you check it if this port is physically damaged then only you can proceed otherwise you please compare the working voltages on all pins with your port 2 and sort out the fault because sometimes +5v supply missing or any diodes connected on port is short which can be the reason for this fault.
