    You don't.

    the memory card slots are soldered to a single board if you lost slot one then your board is bad and about to die which is not good at all sorry

    megadunderhead, because slot 1 is is not reading or is dead does not always means the board is dying as i've seen that on computers a number of times.

    i remember a similar problem on ps1 and 1 of the chips had to be replaced on the main board.
    unless the slot is just filled with dust i dont think it will be an easy fix.

    see most ps2 consoles have several things that go wrong on them 1 they have the fuse not owrking on the board this is why you get no controller functional issues like the controllers plugged in but not working most people when the memory card slot starts to go they turn to ebay or to amazon to unload the system and once you have the system in your hands they disappear and take there money and you got stuck with a dead deck i have 13 right now i am waiting on new memory card slots for the parts cost me 300.00 for all 13 to repair i just recommend buy a new deck
