Ok Turn On Your PS2 Make Sure You Don't have a disk inside. It should show you Browser, System Configuration, and if u press triangle it will take u to the Version menu go to console look at you console code ex. SCPH-77001. Then look at you muti tap to see if they have the same code if it does should work not the same code will not work.

WELL there are two different Multitaps for the PS2. Two questions:

Which multitap do I buy?


There were two versions of the multi-tap made; one for the original fat PS2 and a smaller version made for the slim. The two versions are incompatible with the other PS2. If you have the original multi-tap connected to the slim, it should throw out the 'controller disconnected' message when you boot up. The slim version of the multi-tap should have a sticker on the bottom saying 'only works with models SCPH-70000, SCPH-75001, SCPH-75002'.

Other than the sports games, I don't recall any titles that allow more than two players anyway.

PS2 Modded Trouble Reading DVDr's


Your DVD potentiometer pot on the back of the PS2 laser lens needs to be readjusted. Some people will try to tell you it's out of alignment but if that was the case it would not read CD's. Some people will try to tell you the laser lens is bad. If that was the case it would not read CD's. On the back of the laser lens are two potentiometer pots. In english? Two lil screws that are turnable. One controls the power of the DVD laser one controls the power of the CD laser.

http://www.cyber-mag.com/station/laserV9.htm

That link will give you pretty lil pictures of what i'm talking about :)

In a nut shell the story goes like this folks. If your PS2 won't read certain game DVD's that are of a certain color or if it all of a sudden mysteriously fails to read games it once read but will play cd's just fine, the voltage of the laser for DVD's is not set correctly. (this does needs manual tweeking from time to time if you take your ps2 and move it around alot or if you take it over to friends houses etc etc. Basicly alot of movment in general can take this out of alignment. Even keeping the PS2 on it's side could theoreticly (just my opinion) based on gravitational pull, unbalance the potentiometer.

RESOLUTION:

Step 1 identify your PS2 version:


Version 1 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U1"
Version 2 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U0"
Version 3 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U2"
Version 4 - SCPH-30000, 30001, 35001, 30002, 35002, 30003, 35003, 30004, or 35004, 8 screws on bottom of case

NOTE: Version 4 has 2 varieties of motherboard: Gap/No Gap, the difference between v4 "Gap" and v4 "No Gap" is the "Gap" is there's a spot in the center of bios chip where each side lacks solder points.

Version 5 - SCPH-30000R, 30001R, 30002R, 30003R, 30004R, or 30006R. Also, some SCPH-30000, 30001, 30002, 30003, and 30004 models have a V5/V6

NOTE: Version 5 & 6 - the difference between these two versions is one of the connectors in the corner.

Version 7 - SCPH-39000, 39001, 39002, 39003, 39004, 39008 or 37000
Version 8 - Only in Japanese consoles. SCPH-39000, or, SCPH-39006 (GH-022 BIOS 090)
Version 9 - if you have SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003, 50004, 50006, or 50007 you have a v9 or v10 board.
Version 10 - SCPH-5000x, with date code "3D" to the right and below the serial number on the back of the console. (GH-026 board)

NOTE: To know if its a v9/v10 start up PS2 with no game in it ,press triangle and check dvd driver version dvd ver 3.00 = v9 & dvd ver 3.02 = v10.

If your model # is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003 or 50004 AND if you can find a small ''a'' under the SCPH number or have DATECODE "3C" you have a V9 PS2 main board. (GH-026 board).

If your model # is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003 or 50004 AND if you can find DATE CODE "3D" as shown below, you have a V10 PS2 main board. (GH-026 board).

Version 12 - The new slimline PS2 consoles are referred to as PSTwo here, but elsewhere they are also known as "v12" units... their numbers are SCPH-70011/SCPH-70012, and also SCPH-70004 CB (Belgium).

Step 2 use either google or the link above. If you're using google your keyword search will be something like "ps2 v12 laser lens adjustment" *replace v12 with your ps2 model.

In either case navigate to the site and follow instructions to set the pots back to their factory default settings.

I can't seem to get my ps2 silver multi tap to work


first of all make sure that the multitap is compatible because some multi tap for the thick console doesn't work on the slimline type

you can always check your console's manual for the compatible model of multitap for your console

Multiplayer doesn't work


  • loading a different disc to see if the problem continues.
  • Try inserting the controller into either controller ports (1 and 2) to see if the problem continues.
  • Try a different controller and/or memory card to see if the problem continues.
  • In certain games, there are on-screen "controller options" where you can designate which character (or team) you want your controller to control. Make sure that these options have been verified within the game.
  • Make sure there are no obstructions in the controller or memory card ports (i.e., lint, debris, etc.).
  • Make sure the controller cables are in good condition, free of cuts, frays, or other visible damage.
  • Make sure the controller and the memory card is plugged into their respective ports completely.
  • Make sure the analog button in the middle of the controller is pressed. Toggle this button On/Off to see if either mode helps the controller function properly. This can also help troubleshoot the vibration function with the DUALSHOCK®2 analog controller.
  • Make sure all of the controllers and memory cards (or any other peripheral) you own are licensed[1] for use with PlayStation® products. (Licensed products have the official "PS" logo on the product.)

    Sony Computer Entertainment America, Inc. (SCEA) manufactures the following first party peripherals[2]. There may be other third party peripherals that are licensed; please check with the third party manufacturer directly.

    - DUALSHOCK®2 analog controller: Model SCPH-10010
    - DUALSHOCK® analog controller: Model: SCPH-110
    - Memory Card (8MB) (for PlayStation®2): Model: SCPH-10020 or SCPH-10410
    - Memory Card: Model: SCPH-1020
    - Multitap (for PlayStation®2): Model: SCPH-70120 (for 70000 Series only)
    - Multitap (for PlayStation®2): Model: SCPH-10090 (for 30000 - 50000 Series only)
    - Multitap: Model: SCPH-1070 (for PS oneTM or 30000 - 50000 series PlayStation 2 only)

PS2 DVD version


Hi SDK0013,

I am not sure which version PS2 you have but the only way to realy get there is to change the motherboard from one version to another. 

I know that SCPH-50001 Motherboard will fit in a  SCPH-39000  case.
