PS2 not working

We put disc in to console, and memory card screen comes up (telling us that there is no disk). Also the disc is not spinning. Can you give us any advice as to what could be wrong with it? Are we able to fix it, or should I take it to be professionally repaired?

Thanks, Mandy from Melbourne Australia

New ps1 mem card wont formaton ps2...

I have read that some manufacture PS1 memory cards will not work properly on the PS2. I would suggest trying another PS2 to see if it's a problem with your specific PS2. If the memory card doesn't pop up on the browser screen of another PS2, it could be defective or incompatible. If it does work on another PS2, it could be something weird going on with your memory card slot on your PS2.

Doesnt do anything

Try blowing on the little disk reader first, then try wiping the disk reader with a clean cotton shirt. Put the disk in, and listen if the disk spins, if it doesn't it can be one of 2 things.
-if disk doesn't spin
1) the sensor that sensors whether the latch is open(check youtube for bypass)
2)the spin motor is broke (throw out the ps2, and get a new 1)

PS2 does not read the disc.

Have you cleaned the laser? Try that first and if that dosen't help then your laser might be dead.

No screen or sound

I have had this problem numerous times. It's a glitch in the game, best I can figure. It corrupts your saved game. You might be able to go back to an earlier save and play from there. But the best solution, if that doesn't work, is to take out the game disc, turn on the ps2, click on Browse (with your memory card plugged in) and delete the Vice City file(s) on there. Then put your disc back in and start over from the beginning. It sucks, I know. I've had to do it. And once I was almost to a 100% completion. Bleh. =( Sorry.

Ps2 stuck on memory card screen

If its not an original disc, meaning if it was copied or burnt, then this will happen. However if it is in fact an original PS2 disc, then I'd suggest taking it out, cleaning and trying again.

PS2 Disk won't spin

what may have happened is that the saved files for GT4 on your memory card have now become corrupt, and the disk when put in the suysstem is trying to read the data from the card, simply deleting your saved GT4 data from the memory card should allow the disk to play as normal.
