PS1 controller ports problem
  • I have a Playstation model no. SCPH-5501, the system runs fine but the controller ports will not detect a controller or memory card, I have swapped them with a known working set of ports and ribbon cable but still no response. I would like to know if anyone else has encountered this problem, because I would like to know where to start my troubleshooting of components , thank you.
  • I have the same problem. On the startup screen the arrow only shows if a controller is plugged in, I can watch it disappear when I put in the Memory card, and reappear when I take it out. In fact I just now made an account because of this issue! How do I fix it?
  • I have fixed my ps1 controller problems I changed the 15 amp PS605 fuse on the motherboard, good as new now.
  • Check the motherboard first to see if there are black streaks, mine fried cause of a faulty GS pro.
