Memory Card Slot Broken

A memory card was pulled out with force and my card slot doesn't hold the cards in anymore. Is there an easy fix to take it apart and replace/repair the clips or springs that hold the card i?

    I have had it since march of 2007, I do not think they have more than 1 year warranty.

    Yeah, send it on... cause I cannot get games like rock band 2 that stream from the card to work - i have to literally hold it in while it is read by the Wii. Any helpful sites you can pass on is appreciated!

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.

I put a game cube game in to the wii and it says to insert a memory card into slot A so i put a 128mb memory card into slot A andi turn the wii on and it says no memory card found in slot A WHY?


It might be talking about the GameCube memory card slots, not the SD card slots. There should be a door on the top/left side of the WII. See if it's talking abou that.

Ps2 memory card


The solution is to buy a new PS2. The memory card is fine, but the problem is the slot. Over time, with wear and tear and users roughly shoving the cards in - the data pins on the inside get bent and warped until they can't handle the abuse anymore and give up entirely.

I recommend GameStop to buy quality used PS2 systems. Good luck!

PS2 memory card has been removed or replaced????


WELL THIS AN IDEA FROM ME. THERE MUST BE SOMTHING WRONG WITH HE SLOT ARE THE MEMORY CARD.
!. FIRST I WOULD CHECK INSIDE THE SLOT IF IT HAS ANY DUSK , IF IT DOES DO NOT BLOW IN IT, JUST USE A PIECE OF PARER A TRY TO WIPE IT OUT.
2. SECOND I WOULD CHECK THE MEMOERY CARD IF ANY OF THE PIECES THAT GO INSIDE SLOT ARE MISSING, IF SO THEN IT WON'T WORK ANYMORE.
3. THEN I WOULD INSERT THE MEMOERY CARD , AND PUSH IT A LITTLE HARDER INSIDE, mAY BE ITS NOT FULLY INSIDE.

Hope it works for you.

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.
