Button 2 on controller port 1 not working

Hi there! I have a NTSC (USA) Master System and button 2 is not working on controller port 1. I have two original controllers and both work perfectly when connected to controller port 2, but if I connect to port 1, button 2 won’t work. I tried resoldering all 9 pins for controller port 1, but problem persists. Any idea what might be wrong? Thank you!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hello, did you solve your problem?

When you re-soldered, did you check continuity between controller port 1, pin 9 to resistor R6 and there to leg 20 in IC #4.

Hi there.

I am having the same issue. Button two not working. Have tried and bought new controllers to rule that out. Continuity between pin 9 on the controller connecter is okay and pin 9 to resister R6 is also okay and leg 20 on the IC4 chip to R6 is fine. I have de-soldered and re-soldered the controller connecter just to ensure a good connection. Could the ic4 chip be dead? I really want to solve this for my master system 2
