Ok. I want to learn how to "repair" a PS2 with the controller vibration feature failure. This is when some surface mount fuses blow (third party controller/frayed controller cables can cause this) on the motherboard, and then controller vibration function fails. This also seems to have the more serious effect of disabling the ability to use a multi-tap. x_x
This is NOT remedied by replacing the controller block. This is definitely a mobo/ fuse issue. This however, sums up everything I know on this. In Googling, I haven't found information as to exactly what type of fuses I will need, or where they are located on the various PS2 motherboard revisions. I need just a bit more info.
I found a guy online who sells a "repair kit" for this issue, but the instructions are "in the kit" :/ , and he won't ship the kits to the frozen wastes of Canada. I was hoping to get a kit, and reverse engineer it a bit .
Anyway, I know some of you here have electronics experience that outstrips my dabbling by quite a bit. I'm hoping that perhaps one of you, if you don't know the answer to my question, might be able to find out, or point me in the right direction so I can find out.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
