    Default Busted Genesis Controller Port

    The first player port on my Genesis is non responsive. Is there any way to fix this without any heavy duty repair (i.e. soldering)?

    not if there is bad joints / cracks in the housing.

    if the control port is physically ok, it could be the RCDMS (is it rcdm's in megadrives?) and they will need to be swapped.

    I opened the Sega up, and the broken port looks just like the second one. Is there a RCDMS for each port, or does one control them both?
