    hi cerfer39



    i followed your advices and tried to clean the circuit contacts and using my memory card in another ps2 console and it freeze too when i try to read the card.



    A guy from a games shop told me that he can fix it by formating it and installing a certain software in it to prevent such error in future!!!



    what do you think??  any different suggestions?

Hi Fouda,

This is more than likely a Memory Card Problem.  Try to clean the Circuit contacts on the memory card, and try it again.  A pencil eraser does an outstanding job on clenaing the Circuit board connectors.

    Fouda,



    If my memory serves me correctly, you do not have to format playstation memory cards.  Try to find another PS2 console and see if the other PS2 freezes when your read the card.

    HI Fouda,



    I have never formatted the Memory Cards, and did not even know a devivce was available for formatting.  At this point, you have nothing to loose by allowing the Games Shop Guy to Format and install software.  I apologize for now being able to help on this problem.

Corrupt file comes up when i put memory card in.


Start your PS2 with no game in the disc tray and then select your memory card then delete all of the files and then restart your system. Another thing you can do is put an audio CD in the PS2 and then go to your browser and go into your memory card and try deleting it files. Reformat your memory card

if you can get access at all to the memory card look for an blue squares that may be there. this indicates that the is corrupted data on the memory card. You can select and delete the blue squares. My sons memory card from his original ps2 works fine with the slimmer one. He has occasionally ran into corrupted data which he needed to delete

Ps2 slim problems reading disc


After countless hours of tying to figure this out I went to the basics. This ps2 slim has 3 sensors and after all sensors are the key to making the machine work properly. After testing everything known to man I decided to go around the sensors by taping them all down. Low and behold when I cranked the ps2 slim up the disc now reads and plays perfectly.

PS2 Slim will not play


hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.

Still have a problem to browse my PS2 memory card


Hi Fouda,

Another thing to try, is to open up the memory card you have been working with. Clean it real good and put it back together and try it again.
