When I start it up, it always shows this, even when there isn't a disc inserted. Untitled

@Electricmastro doesn't look good, have you googled to see if anyone else had the same problem? I assume it goes white as soon as you turn it on?

@electricmastro It's stuck on the BIOS screen. Is the disks scratched?

EDIT: Sorry did not read the last part. Blow it out with an air pressure.

@baba_944: even with no disc inserted, a PS1 should still boot properly and then go to the audio CD player screen.

@Electricmastro: When did it start doing this? As anything traumatic happened to the system in its lifetime?

@TBD I know I forgot to read the last part. Use an air pressure to clean the dust from the inside.

I just bought the PS1 a few days prior to the picture.

I couldn't find anything that relates to this, but I did manage to find the thread we are both typing on right now. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=PS1+wh...

Wait you just bought it? Sounds to me like you may have bought a broken one I am afraid.
