playstation problem

I have an old Playstation. Now when I put in a game I get a screen that gives the option of transferring saved games from one memory card to another or CD Player but I can't get the game to play or even the option of starting the game. Does anyone know how to get rid of this screen and back to the game?? I have disconnected everything and hooked back up but nothing is working.

Will your PS1 recognize and play an audio CD? Or, will it not recognize any kind of disc?

I have the same problem with the old Play Station pictured above. Turn the console on and the screen goes to the Blue screen: Memory Card or CD Player Option. Is there a hard reset for this unit? How can you get games to load up?

You peeps are cool man. (I'm a new member here on Techlore) People call me a freak for liking old machines, but I don't feel so bad now. Luckily, no probs with my decade-old PS1! (Yet)

Well sounds like the laser

Well sounds like the laser has died or it needs good cleaning or adjustment.
