Now I could be wrong about this but the evidence you've provided seems to point to the dentist visit as the cause of your problem

try it on a few different devices, but it's possible you might need to replace the PCB

fortunately replacement PCBs (from Dao) are not that expensive and the actual installation process is pretty easy, you just need to take out about a million screws if my pop'n dao is anything to go by

for that matter, you can try just opening it up and checking all the connections are still in place

tried it on the computer and it didn't work either and took out/put back in a few of the switches. kinda hesitant to buy spare parts from dao since I ordered 8 omron switches and the ones he sent me are "made in singapore" ones with black buttons and each one has died about two months after I put it in (compared to the "made in japan" ones that came with the controller, have red buttons and some of which are still working perfectly)

would I need to buy both a PSX and turntable PCB?

don't want to pay $60 and get "Made in Fuzhou Industrial Development Zone by Authentic Quality Electronics" PCBs

Dao controllers use custom-built PCBs that use a plug/socket thing for the connections to the switches so you can't just put any old PSX PCB in there unless you want to take up soldering. Ordering from Dao is the only way to get those and you'll get the same kind as the ones in your controller already sooo

I'm not sure if you'd need both the PSX PCB and turntable PCB though. Depends what failed really.

double-check for any loose/bare wires? idk sounds like grounding issue or just pcb flaking out :<

If you feel up to it, replace the entire cord with a cord from a known-good controller (or extension cable). I'm not 100% sure how the PS2 controller pinout works but I think the button states are sent serially in a few parallel streams, so if there's one bad wire one of those streams might not be making it into the PS2?

That or maybe the optical sensors are going bad. If you have a multimeter (analog will be especially easy to read) see if both schmitt trigger outputs are producing a consistent on-off pattern when you turn the turntable, with regards to the teeth that interrupt the sensors.



also I totally expected Jadin to weigh in on the possibility of your controller being cake.

fiddled with it for like 3 hours today and that didn't fix it and then blew on the connector and now it works lol. I'm dumb

but now the turntable is hypersensitive and misfires (undoubtedly as a result of me doing things to the controller since it has never misfired even once before although I never touched any of the turntable components while I was inside of the controller)

took out all of the switches+keys, cleaned everything put them back in, cleaned ps2 controller ports, jiggled some wires (gently), but obviously fucked something up somewhere

the turntable stuff has nothing to do with your ps2 controller ports or your keys

perhaps clean off the optical sensors (attached to the square circuit board under the turntable)??
