ls92, it could help if you can explain this "I used a screwdriver to press the button and the tip fall on the fuse and make a small sparkle" a bit more. Or you can post some images of the area with your question. This way we could try to determine if you shorted out some component. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question to help you with that.

well i cant tell for sure if this happens on ps1, but on ps2 the memory card and controlers share the sabe ribbon cable. check if its loose. if its not, take it out and put it back in anyway, do a little blowing on the sockets in the mean time. after that, fire the badboy up and see if it works ;)
