Sega Genesis Model 2 controller port


Recommended Posts

I remember back in the mid 1990s the player 1 controller port on my Genesis Model 2 stopped working unless the plug from the controller was held pointing downwards during play. I think the pins became bent. To this day I try to limit repeated controller swamping on the official Genesis and Analogue SG. Has anybody else had this issue?

I've heard of pins becoming bent or more commonly cold solder joints occur on the port due to lots of inserting and removing of controller.

Solder is not a very good material for mechanical stress. That issue sounds like a cold solder joint that had broken. By pushing down that pin would move slightly, making the connection again.
