    I have the same problem...my playstation will play a cd but it won't play any games (all my games are authentic). I've tried cleaning the game discs as well but still nothing...

    Is it worth taking to a shop to get fixed?



    Thanks for any assistance.

    I fixed the problem!!!! I cleaned the lens with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. It worked. The lens was just dirty.

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.

I have a Playstation 2. I was about to play a game (Spyro: A Hero's Tail) and licked on 'load game' when the screen came up with a message saying, 'Load failed! Data could not be loaded...


Try starting the game without the memory card. If it starts up then you know that you have a bad memory card.

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.

Memory Card Corrupted


you cannot save another file until you delete previous one.Corruption occurs if the memory card is removed from console or if you reset the game while saving or loading game remember this also happens when you are saving or loading game and electricity turns off.

PS froze on start


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.

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.
