    I was playing a game today, and noticed my controller wasn't vibration like it shoul have been. To make this short, I tried other games and another controller, and still no vibrating. I have a Magic 3.1 installed in my V7 PS2, but i know the vibration still worked after i installed the chip. Any ideas what happened to me vibration function?!
    THANKS!

    I have the same thing! Does your multitap work (if you have one)?

    Yes i tried both controller ports, neither had vibration. And I don't have a multi-tap, so i don;t know if that works.

    when you installed your mod - did you remove the membrane to the controller port, if so was it secured properly with the flap?

    I would look at that first.

    Also have you tried a known good controller

    just some ideas....

    I removed the ribbon from the mother board, but not off of the port itself. I made sure that i was put back securely. But i will check again. And i do know that both of my controllers are good, i tried them out on a friends un-modded PS2.

    May also be worth - checking the membrane for continuity - no breaks in it.

    Also - can you get a know good controller port to try - this will eliminate that.....

    From what I understand, the loss of vibration is due to a surface mount fuse on the motherboard blowing.

    I found this page with links to each version PS2 motherboard and the SMF {surface mount fuse} functions:
