Fixing Plastic in Controller Port
Fixing Plastic in Controller Port –
At one point in time, my family had a wireless PS2 controller that we all shared between two PS2 systems. The controller was a third party unit that had a tight fit in the controller slot but worked perfectly fine beyond that. I assume that at some point when one of us pulled out the controller, it pulled out the three plastic bits in the controller slot with it, because both the controller, and the plastic are gone. The plastic I am referring to is the part circled in red:
Without it, there are just exposed metal pin-like openings for the pins of the controller to slip into. Right now, I am connecting my controller by spending ~8 minutes stabbing the shit out of the controller slot until it feels like it's secure. I ultimately plan to replace the controller slots with a part like this but for now I was thinking of just yanking the plastic out of port 2 and putting it in port 1 because I have been playing mostly single player anyway.
My questions are:
- Is the plastic glued in at the back? If so, is there a good method for removing it without marring it up too much?
- Is the part I linked to good for ALL phat PS2's?
Thanks for reading,
