Got a Japanese Playstation 1... can't interact with it

Just got a Japanese playstation. Keeps sending me to a screen that will let me play cds or play with the memory chips. Can't get it to let me actually play any of the games that I have for it.

Two options:

Buy a solderless Mod Chip online to bring it back to life; which would be hard to find being that the PS1 is not mainstream anymore. ( Might get lucky and find one at www.eurasia.nu ) Also heard of people using a boot disc with a 8 GB memory card to Mod the older playstations; don't think that will work for you since it doesn't even load a game.

Another options would be to clean that lense like a Doctor's Office. In the past my lenses have got extremely dirty, so dirty that when I cleaned them with a Q-tip lightly dipped in a cleaning solution the Q-tip was black before I finished.

You should consider getting a newer system like a PS3 or a PS2; they have several PS2 systems at a Pawn Shop or Used Game Store and all the PS1 games play on the PS2.

My ps2 which is NTSC/J couldn't accept PAL CDs. how can i make it accept any CD for playstation?


You would need to either mod your PS2 or get Swap Magic to play PAL PS2 games on an NTSC console. Unfortunately even if you got the game to work, the screen would be jumpy and almost unplayable unless the game has a 60Hz option (there are not many with this option at all). Most PAL PS2 games are 50Hz to be compatible with European televisions, and NTSC games are 60Hz to be compatible with American and Japanese televisions.

My psp will not play and movies or play games screen is dark


have you tried adjusting the brightness of the screen on your psp by using the display button to toggle if it is dark or light? if so the problem is either coming from your lens or the cds you are trying to play.
playstation console usually have regional codes that determines the kind of cds they play. for example a region 2 psp might not play a region 1 cd and so on. what you do is to check the region of your psp by reading through the manual and you would see the regional cds it accepts.
also make sure the cds are in good condition as that could also affect the game. if all the above refuses to work, it could be that you need a software update which you can do by going through your manual too. if all refuses, your lens is probably bad and needs replacement.
hope this helped you? please rate

My playstation 3 stopped playing playstation 3 and playstation 1 games. It will only play dvd's.


Your blu ray drive is shot. The drive motor has to operate much faster to read a game then it does a regular DVD. Eventually your PS3 wont play DVDs but will play CDs.. same reason.. then nothing.
I would consider replacing now. Ebay is a good place actually to buy good blu ray drives for cheap. if your not under warranty I could get you a guide on how to do it, or you could send it to me and I could do it for you. Either way. let me know

Playstation 1 does not read games,goes to memory


With this symptom, the lens that reads your cds needs cleaning. If you have a cd cleaner, go and play it on your ps1 for like 30 seconds. It this still does not work, you can open your ps1's cover and manually clean the lens. You will be needing a soft ear bud damped in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens surface. Also if you have a blower, you can blow those dust off. It would also help to clean those cds.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.

If your playstation is chipped (modified) for playing fake (copy) games then only it is possible to play US games on japanese console suuppose if it is not chipped you can't play US games on it and you have to play only japanese games and that also originals.
