Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Multiplayer doesn't work

When i put the multiplay tab into my system, the system fan turns on (its really loud) and then the system turns off. i found a website and it said to turn the ps2 upside down to fix the problem. it worked, but the fan is still running and its still really loud. i'm worried that the fan will bust and the system will overheat and that would suck since i got it for my birthday in august 2007 so its still pretty much new. so do you have any help for me to save my ps2?


ps i can play 2 player games with no problems

Re: 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)

So, I put in a game : MW3 and go multiplayer, but it says that it is disabled because of parental control restrictions.I've turned everything off, please help. I am on a 50gb internet plan each mo

It's not the internet settings, it's parental resctriction ;)
I don't have a PS3, but I guess it could be found in some account management, or something like that.Then you have to find Parental Restriction.

The reason this have occoured, I guess, is because you have registered the psn-account on a e-mail adress where your "age" are under 18 years. You probably will need a password for your parents e-mail adress.

My two girls have dsi,s how do the play with both ds,is on one game

hi there this should help ye out

Playing multiplayer with one Game Card:
Certain Nintendo DS games require only one player have a copy of the game to play multiplayer. Those without a copy of the game will need to download the game information from the player that has the game in their system.

This feature is available on games that have this icon on their packaging:
    To download game information:

  1. Insert the Game Card into the DS Game Card Slot on one system and slide it into place until it clicks. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

  2. Tap the screen using the stylus when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears. If the host DS system's Startup Mode is set to
    • Automatic. The game's menu will appear.
    • Manual. Tap on the box for the Nintendo DS Card Slot using the stylus to start the game.

  3. Turn on the other Nintendo DS systems. For each of these systems, when the main menu appears, tap on the "DS Download Play" icon on the right, middle side of the screen to display list of available games.

  4. Tap the title of the game to begin the download.

  5. See the individual game's multiplayer instructions for additional game play information.

  • Playing multiplayer with multiple Game Cards
    Games that require each player to have a copy of the Game Card inserted into the Nintendo DS will feature this icon:
    multi_pak.gif Because each individual game title has its own method for setting up multiplayer games, you will need to consult the instruction manual for that particular title.

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite

You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

Psp gamesharing trouble

If you have both PSP's are trying to search for a game, nothing will happen because there is no game to share from! On one PSP, insert a game that has multiplayer. (Some multiplayer games do not do game sharing.) Once you get the game up and in multiplayer mode, see if there is Gamesharing available. (Gamesharing is when only one PSP needs a game to function and sends the game temporally to the other PSP so they can play off of one game. Other games requier both PSP's to have the same game to be able to play.)
The loading process may take a while. I hope that helped. Some things are very hard to explain! 0.o Please ask if you have any questions! ^-^
