The dual shock function of my controllers has stopped working for quite some time now. I went out and picked up two brand new ones and tried some games with them and they still do not work. Is there anything inside the ps2 that could prevent the feedback from working? I'd just like to know if i wasted money or not.
Odds are that it is somthing wrong with the PS2... You might want to take it somewhere to get looked at and have it fixed, or just buy a new PS2.

Thanks i've got another ps2 that i can maybe swap this one out for. Or maybe just exchange the controller ports out. My older ps2 has DRE-slow loading problems so i wouldn't be losing anything.
The Controller ports might bee blown out. Do you often disconnect/reconnect controllers while the unit is on?
Do you have a technical background at all? If yes, replacing the controller port board should fix the problem. If it doesn't I'd say there's a problem on the motherboard, in which case if it really bothered you that much, you'd need a replacement motherboard.Originally Posted by XwarlokX
The cost of a new motherboard would probably equal the price of a new PStwo, but you might be able to find a cheap one on Ebay, providing you match up the same version numbers (eg V0, V1,V2 etc.)
For future reference, any problems with PS2, post here:
I wouldn't say i have a "technical" background of any kind. But i've been fooling with electronics going on 10-12 years now. So i do have some experience, but nothing on paper that i could claim.
It doesn't really bother me that bad, i wouldn't go so far as to change out the motherboard unless it quit working totally. Last i checked the controller port was connected with a ribbon cable. Should be pretty easy to change out if i ever get the chance.
Yeah it is very easy to replace, just make sure you don't snap the plastic connector on the controller board that connects to the ribbon cable. It's not too difficult to snap, I did that once, and had to wait ages for the glue to dry, since then needless to say I've been extra careful when taking the controller boards off to get to the motherboard.
i did the same standarsh
So it's not working with any game you play?
Nope, no feedback at all. At first i thought it was the settings in some games i bought, but i've been through half my library and all of them have the vibration function on. None of em work though.
So its gotta be the controller ports.. I'll be changing those eventually.
