This is my 1st post here, I hope this is the correct section for my question.
Last month I bought four old Playstation 2 consoles, 1 was working and the other 3 I could repair so they work now.
I also got 4 controllers with them, they were all broken, but I could fix only 1, the other 3 have the wires broken in the cable. The cables are in bad shape, so I want to replace the cables completely. I can desolder the cable in the controller so that is not a problem, but I don't know how to open the plugs that go into the Playstation itself.
I looked at it but I don't know how to open them without completely destroying the plugs.
I used a thin knife going around the plug (there is a seam) to make it a bit wider, enough to put a very thin screwdriver in it to unlock the clips holding the thing together.
I pulled out the pins with a needle, but it was very hard and broke a few pins.
