    Hi, everyone!

    I noticed that when I play my PlayStation 1 games on my phat PlayStation 2, rumble does not work for the controllers. I have used both the controller that came with the PlayStation 2, and a MadCatz one (the MadCatz one is for both PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2). I have played these games on my PlayStation 1 with the rumble working, (using different controllers, obviously) and I have checked to see that the rumble function is turned on. My PlayStation 2 games don't seem to be working with the rubble function either?

    So can anyone help me sort this out? I do not think this is due to a hardware failure inside the PlayStation 2 controllers, because They both don't work, and they used to work perfectly, and are always kept in great condition.

    Thanks,
    --Frute

    So, you can't get any rumble when you're playing on your PS2?

    It seems that you have a hardware failure, but it's in your console. I had the same thing happening because I bought a used PS2. I had to take it apart and solder a wire in place of a burned fuse. Here's the guide:
