Controllers intermittently disconnecting
Controllers intermittently disconnecting –
I have an old (V3 or earlier, I haven't opened it to find out for sure), unmodded PS2. After I've been playing on it a while, the controller on port 1 will either disconnect or switch out of analog mode. Sometimes I can just switch it back and keep going and sometimes I have to disconnect / reconnect it. This happens with every controller I've put on it so I'm pretty sure it's something with the system itself.
I've read that the controller ports are a common failure point on these. Does this problem sound like a port problem? If so, where's a good place to buy a replacement?
Sounds dumb, but still.... do you already tried someonelse's pad?
I had a similar problem, and the problem was in the pad wire. Bought a new pad and it's all good now
Other than that, there's also a fuse in the controller port, that usually blows. but, seeing that you can turn the analog light back on, it prolly the wire.
Happy new year
thats what happen to me too, i had got another controller pad and it solved the problem. so you might get another controller pad
