Slot one not reading cards properly.


There isn't way to fix this easily. I recommend taking it to Geek Squad and having them look at it. Although it may be cheaper just to purchase a new Ps2.

My playstation keeps saying to put in a memory card.. even though I have done


did you try reading the memory card without any game discs put in via the ps2 menu?

is your memory card working properly? could be a corrupted memory card or a faulty memory card slot.
try putting a friend's memory card on that same slot.
if it works... then your memory card is gone bad...
if it doesnt work...then your memory card slot has gone bad.

else try putting your memory card in your friend's ps2, see if that ps2 reads your memory card. if it does...then your memory card slot has gone bad.

Final Fantasy PS2 problem, "failed to check memory card"


Im going to ask you the simplest of all questions, if you can't answer it then step away from the Playstation! Is it a PS1 or PS2 Memory card?

There is no reason why it won't work if it is a PS1 memory card unless the card itself is corrupt somehow

If it is a PS2 memory card use a PS1 card. FFVIII is a PS1 game. Therefore needs a PS1 card

Same PS2 problem


I think that it has something to do with your memory card connectors inside your ps2, try opening your ps2 and reconnecting the connections.

If the problem still occurs, try to check the memory card motherboard inside, check if it has damages.

If still the problem occurs you must replace your PS2

Ps2 memory card


Hi Lofatman,

 

If this problem happens with the memory card when its in either slot 1 or slot 2

I suggest you clean the contacts of the memory card. 

 

If it just happens when you have in Slot 1 or Slot 2 only,

 Go to Radio Shack and get a Can of contact cleaner that has a Brush built into the Spray nozzle. 

  1. Turn off the PS2 and disconnect the power cord.
  2. Use a small screwdriver to press open the memory card slot. Do not use too much force, its delicate.
  3. Push the Brush sprayer up into the memorycard slot and spray a little and brush away at the memory slot contacts.

if you do not have success with that, you must open the PS2 case, and Remove the Controler ports and clean up the whole controller port assembly.

 

If that doesn't work, and your frustrated and not Electronically skilled enough to do this.  I can get the PS2 in tip top shape, for $32 and that includes return shipping.  I run the website www.playstationclinic.com

 

This should put you in business.
