Broken PS2 controller port?

Here's the situation: I recently dug out my old PS2 which I haven't played in about 2 years now. The PS2 switches on just fine, but I can't do anything on the pre-game page (the page that says browser and system configuration), I can't click on anything or scroll down, nothing happens.

On the game (I was testing out Star Wars Battlefront 2), I can press start and scroll up and down, but I can't click on my save data, nor can I delete it or back out to the start menu.

I have tried 3 different remotes so I am 100% that there is something wrong with the first port on the PS2. The analog LED still lights up and if I unplug the remote while in the game (or at least on the start menu of the game), it tells me to reconnect the remote.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? This has rendered my PS2 completely unplayable.

Try the usual blowing on the port before you insert the controller, and the other trick of pressing on the port a little in case there's a loose connection, but short of that there's probably nothing you can do short of dropping it from a cliff or using it to hold up books.

These consoles only last so long I'm afraid and it sounds like yours has bit the dust. You can grab a pre-owned one from GAME for about £20 now though.
