SOURCE: Can't seem to play the games
the contacts for the carts may be worn
get a credit card, cloth and head cleaning fluid.
put the cloth around the card and a few drops of liquid and push in to the slot and clean the contacts.
make sure none are bent out of place.
if cleaning won't help then you may need to open up and look at the contacts for dry joints; a blob of solder may help.
failing that you may need to look on ebay for a replacement console (you won't need the leads so it shouldn't cost more than a tenner including postage)

This could be a situation where the Laser Lens voltage is off and it is not reading CDs. I have had this before.
You will have to take your case off, and look for a little orange "screw" or "dial" which is just above the cable that connects the laser assembly to the circuit board. It might have a Philips head looking top.
Make sure the system is off and unplugged before doing this.
Turn the orange screw approx 35 degrees clockwise, and the reassemble the system. This should give the laser enough juice to start reading the discs again.
If this is not the solution, it is possible your clock battery is dead. Buy a new CR2032 3Volt battery from wal-mart or your local watch store, and pop it into your top right (on the back of the system) compartment to fix this.

Dirty laser, failing laser. I'd try to clean the lens in a circular motion with a DRY q-tip.
Let me know if that works ;)
