Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Only one controler works via the Multitap

I've had a ps2 SCPH-70004 a few years, and now I tried to connect a MultiTap. The first one (not a Sony) did not work - i still could only get two controlers to light up (one in the MultiTap port A, the other in the second port on the box). Thought it was a problem with the non-original multitap, got hold of a Sony MultiTap - but the same problem. Max 2 controllers works, one in slot A of the Multitap, and one in the second slot of the ps2 box.

Any suggestions?

if you already tried to use a working controller on the other port and still it wont work it only means that the other port of your multi tap is already malfunctioning

We did the instructions for the multitap.and only the slot a is only working while the others are saying theres nothing there

When your using the multitap do you use slot one in the PS2 as your slot one??? If so it might be that certain games have the multitap in slot two in the PS2 try that??

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.

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

    - 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: Model: SCPH-1070 (for PS oneTM or 30000 - 50000 series PlayStation 2 only)
