    You can always try the old fashioned blowing-in-the-hole technique. There might be dusts or something inside. Have you been messing with the port ?

    If your going to blow in it I would use an air compressor or compressed air. If you blow with your mouth you can risk getting moisture in the port and cause oxidization.

    Doing it once wouldn't be a problem. This isn't like blowing into the NES cartiges [​IMG]

    It won't plug in? See if your twisted the connector. That happened to my friend (his wavebird adapter twisted). Oddly enough, it worked when we twisted it back (I guess we just didn't break any connections).

    it's plug into gamecube port1.. but for some reason it keep blocking (in Dragon Ball TB2 Wii games)...
    but in port 2 Gamecube controller, it works normally..

    if this problem still occurred , i'll ask here again [​IMG]
