View Full Version : psx not recognizing games

I just got a PSX that always goes into the CD player screen... even when there's a game in. It's probably a common problem. For $500 and the block, what is it?

take the cover off, and try to get it to work by manually pushing down the little switch that the door pushes down when it's closed. Jiggle it a bit (you may need something like a Qtip to push it down with. It could very well be the door sensor. You may need to defeat it.

If not that your laser could be DOA. Try the door first!

Man, if I had a dollar for every time someone told me to use the door, I'd be very wealthy.

Actually, you can tell if it's the door or not, by whether or not the disc spins up. If it doesn't spin, it could be the door. If it spins up, and fails to recognize the game, it's not the door.

You said it won't read the games correctly right, and it just sends you to the operating system screen right, try useing a lens cleaner you never know it mite just work.
