Re: ps2 controller slot

If pushing it in harder does not work open the ps2 open and push the strip that connects to the controller slots in more, it can get loose.

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.

Multi tap for ps2 instructions

that means 2 things : the first one is that the multi tap is damaged and it's not gonna work
second thing is that the slot of ur ps2 is not working

so to know the problem u can go to one of ur friends who have a ps2 and u can test it there if it works ,so u'll know that the problem is from the slot in ur ps2 and if it doesn't work so the problem will be from the multi tap

My memory card slot 1 doesn't work can I change the unit so that games will save to slot 2 instead or how do I swap the slots in the unit


When you choose to save when you are in any game, on the save screen you can choose to save to slot 2 provided there is a memory card inserted in slot 2.

Ps2 won't read ps1 memory card

PS2's don't read PS1 memory cards outside of the browser screen. It can only be used as access memory. Hope this helped. As for the slots it might be only fixable by a mechanic.

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


This should put you in business.
