I had this problem too, for years I just never played games that saved in slot 1. Well, I was getting ready to buy a replacement; being tired of this work around, I tried propping the hatch open and blowing really hard into it (minimizing any saliva additions). Now it works again. I recommend using an air can, but check to see if it's not working due to dust on the contacts.
