PS froze on start

My Playstation randomly stopped working one day. When I turn it on it goes to the screen where you can select Memory Card or CD Player...
the arrow appears on Memory Card. But i cannot use the controller to move or select anything. Then the arrow randomly disappears. Any help would be greatly appreciated

If it is only one disk, clean the underside ot the disk with cd cleaner and try again if problem persists, the disk may be defective or the unit may have problems.

If all disks do this, there is most likely a problem with the system call 1-800-345-sony for assistance.

This was in the manual which was printed 9 years ago, so if the number has changed or they no longer cover the ps1, i whouldn't know what to do if cleaning the blue lens thingy doesn't fix the problem.

My computer won't turn on and it goes to a black screen with words and then i click start windows normally and it goes to a blue screen then stops, how do i get it to turn on?


The blue screen states that it has a hardware error. Usually the problem is in the memory card. All you have to do is open your computer (cpu) and removed the memory card. Try to blow the memory slot and try to clean the memory card pins with a clean cloth and return it back to the memory slot. After that try to turn it on if it works. If not, try to replace the memory card if you have a spare.
Aside from memory card problem is the hardisk problem but usually rare. Try the memory step first before the hardisk step.

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.

What you're seeing is the menu. You need to put the disc in the console, or the disc is dirty and will not play, so it then automatically goes to the menu.
