    HELP!!!
    I have disassembled my Sony PS2.. after having it in a box for quite some time.
    The primary controller port got jacked up several years ago... so I threw it in a box.

    I would love to be able to play the many games I have for this system.... boots fine except there is no response from the primary controller.

    The primary and secondary controller ports are identical, but games won't play without the primary port.

    Disassembly reveals a bent connector in the primary controller connection.
    The connector is bent/pushed backwards or inwards... so is shorter than normal and does not make contact with the male connector from the controller.


    primary controller port
    X 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

    Secondary controller port
    0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

    ----------
    X indicates a female connector that is bent backwards (or inwards from face of console) and results in no connection
    0 indicates female connector at PS2 in normal position
    -----------------------------------

    the primary and secondary control ports are housed together with a metal backing and an electronic connection at the motherboard
    ... there seems to be no access
    It may be possible to pull the connector out with tweezers, but that would add stress to the solder connection

    Q: How does one fix the faulty connector?

      Sorry man, I wish I could help but I know nothing about the PS2's. It's too bad my "hatred" for Sony boils over so that helps block any possibility of me check into it more.

      Not enough people have asked me about this type of repair so I haven't invested any time into it. Game systems are generally complex and not easy to fix so I have stayed away from them so far. However recently we've been having problems with the drive in our Xbox 360 so I finally took it apart about 2 weeks ago. Now I'm just too cheap to put $40 into a new drive though!!
      My kids keep being smart asses too saying "Man, you are poor when you can't even afford to fix your Xbox."

      I'd help you out if I could man!! Sorry to say at the moment I dunno how to.

        Thanks Ben. Nice to know that I could buy parts like this for PS2, if needed. Thanks for the ecrater link! B)
        The original post is kind of inaccurate, so disregard. :blush:

        I have fixed the problem. Just a little prying here and there.



        This pin was bent.... but it's more like a retainer since it does not make an electrical connection to the controller cable like the center pins, but does fit into a groove.

        After the pin was reoriented (no soldering) , the PS2 was connected to a TV... vioala, the controller works. Yay!! My PS2 lives again!

        ----------
        Another problem .... the remote control interferes with the analog Dual Shock controller.
        Removing the remote control receiver solved that problem.
        Probably need to run the remote control software update CD again.

        ---------------------------------------
