Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

3 Answers

Ps1 game shows up as audio

I put in a brand-new game 'battle hunter' for ps1, and my slim reads it as an audio CD. No other Ps1 disks that I play have had this problem... is this a disk issue? It looks 100%, but the disk reads track 2-5, there's no track one, track 3 & 4 sound the same, and 5 has no sound at all.

I have had this happen to me, I just tried it a few more times and eventually the system picked up the game file.

The best bet is to take it back and switch it for a new one.

Hi IDfection,

 

Yes, you have a disc problem.  Some PS1 games have audio MP3 , or WAV files on them, and poor reading sometimes will pick up the audio tracks and not the Game data. You could be having a Laser alignment issue, but if other PS1 games are working fine, you do not.

    HI IDfection,



    If you know how, you might be able to adjust the CD potentiometer on the back of the laser. Just tweak it about 2 degrees at a time clokwise direction. Two pots are on the back, one is for DVD and other is For CD. They are labeled so.

My ps2 slim memory cards work on the main screen, but i'm trying to play a ps1 game and as i try to save the game, it says that there is no memory card present. I bought another card with more memory.....

You can't save PS1 games on a PS2 memory card. You need to buy a PS1 memory card to save PS1 games. The PS1 card will plug into the standard memory slot on a PS2, but the insides are different.

2 PS1 games in almost perfect condition arn't working on PS2

Try wiping the disks in a circular motion with a cotton t-shirt, tissue or cleaning cloth, then try again. If it still doesn't work, try a PS2 game. If it works, try another PS1 game. If the other PS1 game doesn't work, the PS1 part of your PS2 system may be broken. Your PS2 has, inside of it, a miniaturized PS1. If that mini-PS1 breaks, you can't play PS1 games. If the PS2 game doesn't work, you probably need a lens repair. If the other PS1 game works, then your games are defective and you should get new ones.

Playstation 2 slim

you might want to get a long q-tip and gently put alcohol on it and swap the lens.then have another tip ready to dry off. ps2 games are basiclly a dvd . and you can find info about a lawsuit that sony has against them for not being able to read dvd's.
