Problem loading PS1 games

My Playstation 2 will load and play PS2 games just fine, but when I try to load a PS1 game the Playstation logo/load up screen starts flickering. You can see the game loading up in the background but the flickering Playstation logo never goes away. You can start playing the PS1 game with the flickering logo! It just won't dissappear. It seems to read audio CDs just fine. Any ideas?

I'm playing PSone games on my Ps2 and I am using a playstation one memory card. My ps2 loads from the memory card, but when I try to save data onto my ps1 memory card the ps2 freezes on the load screen.


YOU PROBABLY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MEMORY ON YOUR PS1 CARD AND THE PS2 DOES'T KNOW HOW TO TELL YOU THIS BECAUSE IT WAS ONLY PROGRAMED TO SAY NOT ENOUGH MEMORY WITH A PS2 MEMORY CARD. TO PLAY OFF YOU SAVED DATA TRY TRANSFERRING YOUR MEMORY TO A COMOUTER THEN TO A PS2 MEMORY CARD... BEST OF LUCK

PS1 Trademark Logo glitches when loading in my PS2 slim


I would say it's NOT a PS2 problem ..it's the legacy game..software glitch in the game program itself.

Slimline PS2 only plays PS1 Games and not PS2


Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.

If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.

Ps1 games


Are you receiving a disc read error? Or do they simply not load?

In either case, you will want to make sure that your laser is clean. This will require opening the console.

Just google playstation 2 repair and look for free walkthroughs...they are everywhere.

I would boil the problem down to 3 possibilites....

1. Alignment

2. Adjustment of the cd side of your laser potentiometer

3. A simple cleaning of your laser

Playstation card


Your question is somewhat confusing, using a playstation 2 memory card, will have PS2 game saves on it, how would you play PS2 games on a PS1 from the save, you can't. If you just mean you are using a PS2 card for a PS1, the way a PS2 card saves data is different to a PS1 card, so it probably won't work You can use your PS1 memory cards in the PS2. You can only use the PS1 memory cards to save PS1 games that you are playing in your PS2. You can't save any PS2 game data to a PS1 memory card
