Sony Playstation 2 Controller Problem

Question: Sony Playstation 2 Controller Problem

Hi there all,
My PlayStation 2 controller connected to a USB adapter doesn't stop vibrating whilst in some games for example Flight simulator, it does not stop vibrating - Although it can be good, i find it really annoying.
Is there anyway that i could stop it vibrating or vibrate when necessary e.g. in Flight Sim landing.
Help!
Thank You Very Much.

Sony Playstation2, Model: SCPH-5001, Serial No. FU6398319.

The tray( on which disc is placed ) comes out only 1.75" and then goes back when attempt is made to eject the disc electrically. To try manually, the power was switched off, the cover was removed and the disc was retrieved but the tray does not come out more than what comes out on attempting to eject electrically. Kindly advise how to fix.

Sony PS Going Down Hill
Sony slump sinks game stocks


Japan's electronics colossus announces 91 percent drop in game division's operating profits, sending U.S. publishers' and sellers' shares sliding.

Sony Corp. surprised the game industry this morning when it announced a 25 percent drop in its second-quarter profit. The electronics colossus also reduced its yearly operating profit forecast by 23 percent to 100 billion yen ($918 million) with a net profit forecast of 50 billion yen ($459 million).


Even more surprising was that Sony's games subsidiary, Sony Computer Entertainment, was one of the biggest reasons behind its stunted income.

SCE's sales fell 35.6 percent in Q2 2003, slashing the unit's profits 91 percent. The company cited research and development costs for their next-generation microprocessors as the main culprit, but also blamed sluggish PlayStation 2 sales in America. The one bright spot for the PS2 was Europe, where sales increased due to a competitive price drop, perhaps foreshadowing a similar move in the U.S. market.

Sony's Q2 report can be read via a PDF on Sony's investor-relations site. In Japan, Sony's stock closed down 5.04 percent to 3,960 yen ($36.13), ahead of the profit announcement, and fell further in after-hours trading.

Word of the reduced PS2 sales sent U.S. game publisher and sellers' stocks sliding as well. GameStop and EBgames' shares fell 2.17 and 4.83... Read more

Answer:Sony Playstation going Downhill

I don't know if it's going downhill so much as it has nearly saturated the market. I don't have a PS2, and I'm not planning on getting one, but out of all the possible purchasers of the system, most people probably already have one.

Have you noticed that when you get a new gaming console you play it non-stop, but after a year passes, you rarely pick up the controller? As more and more time passes, you play it less and less. This scenario has probably begun to afflict many of the PS2 owners out there. It sold so many consoles so early in the game that the people who played them initially have grown older and grown bored. So they stopped buying games.

In a year or two when the PS3 comes out everything will be happy again for Sony. But until then, they're probably going to have a tough time turning much of a profit on their gaming division.

Please Teach Me Step by Step

Answer:How to Use a Playstation 3 Controller in 64 bit Windows 7 ?

Found via google.

One industrious modder out there has created a simple program so you can use your PS3′s SIXAXIS controller on a PC like a game pad. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

1. Download this archive and install the filter driver (libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.10.1.exe).
2. Unpack ps3sixaxis_en.exe
3. Plug the SIXAXIS into your PC.
4. Run ps3sixaxis_en.exe once.
5. Push the PS button on the SIXAXIS once if it doesn’t see it straight away.

Unfortunately, the motion sensing features aren’t possible on the PC (not yet as least). But still, this is pretty easy way to net yourself a free usable game pad.

I have 2 Playstation 3 controllers that I would like to use to play games on my laptop. I managed to install the first one following a guide about "ScpServer" to install it as a "Controller XBOX 360 For Windows" and it works perfectly.
When I try to use the second one it doesn't work. The 4 lights keep flashing and I tried reinstalling the driver using just the second controller but it still won't work.

Do you have any suggestion?

Hi,

I'll try to get everything down so far and feel free to ask questions so I can fill in the blanks. I've got a decent PC, it was custom built by my brother who is a bit more techy than me.

Despite this, I only really play one game. Final Fantasy XIV: Online Heavensward.I've played this with a pad, sometimes connected via usb lead and sometimes connected via a small bluetooth USB adapter.

Recently however the pad has been doing this incredibly frustrating thing whereby I'll be playing normally and it'll just lock up for a few seconds. My guy continues running in the direction he was running, or my action bar remains open as if I was still holding down the R2 / L2 button but none of my other buttons will respond. The rest of the game continues along just fine, not graphical glitches, there's no lag, nothing is slowed or stopped. Just my controller that stops working / responding for just a second or two and then responds again.

Now I've tried what I thought was everything.

1. I changed the pad.
2. I replaced the bluetooth adapter with an official Sony DS4 wireless PC adapter.
3. I tried using it wired.
4. I tried using different USB ports.
5. I attempted to update the drivers. (was told I already have the best one available).
6. I completely removed (I think) all drivers and any software associated with any of the controllers.
7. I deleted and reinstalled the game (an hour or two process for a 3 year old + MMO)

None of this seems to h... Read more

The controller has a ps2 type of connection to plug into the transcriber. I don't have a ps2 connector on my computer so I got a ps2 to USB adaptor. I plugged it into my computer (Windows 7 operating system) and it wasn't recognized.

Can this foot controller be used on my computer? Is there a driver or anything available that will make it work?

I have had my playstation 2 going on 2 1/2, 3 years now. It use to work perfect then came the disc read errors, the funny noises etc. i have opened my playstation 2 on several occassions, everything was alright. Just a few days a go I was in it again trying to clean the laser when suddenly the screen froze, I turn it off then turned it back on. The only thing that worked was the fan and the red/green button (reset button). the blue eject button didnt work at all, neither did the laser or the disc drive. Im a game freak. I mean A GAME FREAK.

Alright, got this LCD panel from my brother, his friend gave it to him after finding it in his garage. It does not work, he said I could keep it if it didn't, so I figure if I can repair it for about $100 or so I'll be good to go.Monitor Model: Sony SDM-HS73 17" LCD TFT display, manufacture date October 2003, serial 6099251. Cause of failure: UnknownEDITEDMy diagnosis of the monitor:Screen goes white when turned on, colored bars appear throughout the middle of the screen. [EDIT]When the monitor is plugged in, I noticed a high pitch noise from the inverter, same thing when its turned on. Though, you'd think if the inverter was bad it would simply shut off, wouldn't it? The noise seems to be coming from a coil on the board, I'll snap a photo of the inverter and controller and link it below. The coil in question will be circled, maybe some guru here can guess what it does exactly.[EDIT] Screen then goes black but the cathode in the bottom of the monitor stays on. Menu button doesn't work, the monitor does stay on however, which seems to indicate the inverter is good. Probable causes:Controller boardBad cable (unlikely, but plausible)Or, in a very unlikely case, the controller board isn't getting power from the inverter. Which could be a bad cable also.

Hi guys,

I have a Sony Vaio and i cant seem to get my ethernet to work. Now ive contacted Sony, and they have said that i can buy a recovery disc of 60?. As a student that is way to much money.

Now i hopefully can explain all this without getting it to packed, Ive checked for any drivers on the sony sites.
The only driver i saw(that had some word of ehternet :P) was 'ethernet driver' and i downloaded that.
Now the driver installs in like 2-3 seconds, which seems not right, checked at my drivers and still was giving me questionmarks

Now there are 3 drivers that come up with a questionmarkthose are in dutch but hopefully experts know what it means

- ethernet controller
- sm-buscontroller

I turned on my PlayStation 3 about an hour ago and got an onscreen notification that it had not been shut down properly the time before. While I've gotten this message many times in the past, the problem has always been solved within a matter of minutes. Unfortunately, this time is different. I don't recall what I did after getting this message, but, for whatever reason, the screen has turned dark gray -- not totally black, but a very dark gray -- and it's been that way for more than 30 minutes. I know that in the past whenever I've gotten the message that my PS3 has not been turned off properly the previous time, the message further states that the unit will restart and fix any formatting errors, which may take 2 to 3 hours (or words to that effect). I'm wondering if the continuously gray screen I now have is an indication that any errors are being fixed and that it may take as long as 2 or 3 hours.

For what it's worth, I never used the PS3 to play games -- only to look at JPEG discs or DVD's/Blu-Rays. I was attempting to watch a JPEG disc when this problem occurred. Next, I inserted a movie, but it also wouldn't play. The screen stayed dark gray.

On the front of the unit I see the blue and green lights are lit.

I don't know if there might be a simple fix or if, on the other hand, the problem could be quite serious. Perhaps the errors are currently being fixed and the machine will resume normal operation shortly. In the meant... Read more

I then followed instructions and my system was soon up and running once again.

Question: Playstation 3

The PlayStation 3After speaking to the gamers help line and the legal team provided by Sony, there seams to be no way off reinstalling it to its factory preset.I purchased my PlayStation 3 60GB on UK release.Then it was what i wanted, now it is not.I cannot remove the system update, even if i did a factory reinstall, reformatted the hard drive, thus it seems to me this is a breach of user policy.The PlayStation 3 only has 512MB of RAM, when i purchased it it really only able to provide 256MB of memory as the other 256MB of memory is for the GPU which the drivers have never been released to the public or to coders.Now with the system updates its free memory is at around 25MB, as as such is constantly crashing, I can no longer use it as a super audio CD and i can no longer use it for Blurays BD's,Can some one please tell me how to reinstall it to as i purchased it.

Answer:Playstation 3

I cannot play DSD audio files I have created anymore using the PS3.I could originally.With 256MB out of the 512MB for the GPU and each of the optional(?) updates / applications MB usage, I no longer have 24MB avaliable so my 24-bit audio cd DSD files no longer work.I create DSD's of my audio, play them from my PS3 to my PC, then to my amp, and then back to my PC to record them in Multichannel audio, thus allowing me to add 7.1 Dolby Digital Cinema EX audio tracks to the HD Videos I create.This way I have all 3 processors doing the work.Since update 2.50 they do not work.I spoke to sony today, their Gamers Network and their legal team and neither can offer me a way to revert to how it was originally out of the box.Do I have to buy another PS3 to continue my work.And to be honest I honestly though That you could always do a factory reset, but sony have informed this is not correct.Once an application is installed the memory even after it has be uniinstalled is still addressed/assigned only to that application.Please help.And thank you for responding.Beta

Hi there,
I was just wondering, what makes the PS2 so much better than normal PC's? I remember reading somewhere that it has a bus speed of 3.2 GB per second, isnt that waaay too much as compared to current cpu's (or atleast those which came out when PS2 was released). Basically, I'd like to compare a PS2 and PC (Technical specifications).

To start my NAT is Moderate. i am using a Westell 6100G Model: G90-610015-20 this is a NON-router modem. the router i do have is completely open, Note: even when i do not use the router my NAT is always moderate. MY ISP Frontier refuses to port forward saying that i would have to pay $80/Month to have a special service of theirs for port forwarding. with no guarantee that it will do anything for me. manual port forwarding from the Westell 6100G site http://192.168.1.1 is unhelpful and impossible to use. the modem firewall is off. turning off my computer firewall will do nothing as ive said because i connect the PS3 Directly to the modem without my router. i have tried changing on the westell site from routed bridge to just bridge however this kills my connection and i have to switch back. i have been told getting a new modem will do nothing for me. please advise

Hello. I have a vintage Playstation 1, and I'm trying to find out if it's possible to use it through my PC.

Thanks :)

Answer:Playstation app for WP

As of right now, there are only client/third party apps. You can check trophies, news, youtube videos, but no fully fledged official app. I have heard nothing, and honestly it wouldn't make sense for PlayStation to make an app for Microsoft, their biggest console competitor. As someone who has a PS4 and a Nokia Lumia 928, I want want you want, but it probably will never happen. :(

Is there a way to remedy this to where all computers and the playstation use the same amount of bandwidth or how would i fix this problem ?

You need to configure the QoS on the router to attempt to correct the situation. If that fails, I'd consider a different router that has bandwidth management.

Retail price of Sony's 60GB console comes out, but no word on the 20GB version.

Sony Computer Entertainment UK has confirmed that the retail price of the 60GB PlayStation 3 is currently planned to be £425 in the UK--although there is still a possibility that this will change before launch. SCEUK MD Ray Maguire told industry magazine MCV that the "60GB version looks like £425 in the UK at the moment".

However, there is no guarantee that the 20GB console will be launched in the UK. "The lower-end 20GB version of PlayStation 3 has no wi-fi, no HDMI, and none of the other slots in it, so it's really a question of where we would position it. It's more likely that we will only launch the 60GB version," Maguire told MCV.

A price point of £425 would, at current exchange rates, make the UK console over £100 more expensive than a direct conversion from the $599 US retail cost, and about £10 more than a direct conversion from the European price of 599 euros announced at E3.

Online retailer GameStation has closed its preorders for the 60GB console "until Sony are in a position to confirm initial allocation volumes".Click to expand...

I've always wondered about this.
Which OS the Playstation 3 console used and if it was possible to get a virus on it.
 
As far as I know, a virus and or malware has to be specifically made for the OS it wants to attack.
So have any of you ever heard of a PS3 virus or malware?
 
Also, another question would be about transferring songs from computer to ps3 via usb.
If the infected music files were indeed loaded and played on the playstation 3, would it affect it?
 
I guess this all depends on which operating system the playstation 3 uses (if anybody knows)
 
Edit: I've just heard that sony uses the Xcross Media Bar Operating System which is apparently is of their own creation.
 
I guess the new question is, has anybody ever heard rumours of viruses or malware for this operating system?

Answer:What OS does the Playstation 3 use? Viruses possible?

even if there was a PS3 malware -- what would it do...you don't store your personal information in games. Hackers are gonna waste their time by trying to ruin user's gaming experience -- you don't need to worry,there's no malware....LetMeGoogleThatForYou

My sons received a PS2 for Xmas and played a DVD that they'd also received. They set up a password and then enjoyed the movie.

Last week, they went to play the DVD again, but had forgotten the password that they'd set up several months ago. I know they should have written it down, but now it seems that the DVD (which is the only one in our house) cannot be played again, because they are locked out.

Is there any way to reset the password so that we can use the PS2 as a DVD player again?
 

Answer:Playstation passwords?

Taken from this site:

Why am I asked for a Password every time I try to play a DVD movie?
Most DVD films released in Europe do not have parental control software programming within the disk. However, if the 'enter password' screen does appear, you will need to disable this function to progress. Enter 7444 in the password section.

If your PlayStation 2 then displays 'invalid password', re-enter the password screen and press the select button followed by 7444. This will delete any password in your PlayStation 2's memory. Your PlayStation 2 will then ask you to enter a new password. Enter a new password. You will then be asked to 'confirm new password'. After confirming this new password you will then be allowed to enter the parental control menu. Set the region to England, and the parental lock level to off. Ejecting and closing the disk tray will then save the DVD menu options.
Don't know if it will work, but it's worth a shot. I'm assuming that you would need to change the region to the US, is you're in the US.
