Maybe it feels rather sticky? - as in the result of liquids being poured into the controller. My advice is to turn off the PS2, keep tapping on the buttons until they stand up in their default positions, and reset the PS2 making sure that no buttons or control sticks are held down.

Probably you damaged it in the process... there was no need to open it. You should have just cleaned around the sticks/buttons. colgate.gif

 

To clean the controller properly: use alcohol or water to clean out the buttons that are sticky. Never use oils or greases.

I've gone through at least 3 controllers playing San Andreas...my analogue sticks mess up and C.J. walks around in circles or keeps moving...

Yes you can. It even works with rumble. However, I don't know why you would want to, the SIXAXIS is wireless.

 

Edit: Read that backwards. No you can't. The PS3 controller doesn't communicate over that USB cable. Even when charging over USB, it is still connected by Bluetooth. The PS2 can't communicate over Bluetooth.
