This paper is dedicated to study the fully discretized semi implicit and implicit schemes of a 2D parabolic semi linear problem modeling MEMS devices. Starting with the analysis of the semi-implicit scheme, we proved the existence of the discrete solution which converges under certain conditions on the voltage $\lambda$. On the other hand, we consider a fully implicit scheme, we proved the existence of the discrete solution, which also converges to the stationary solution under certain conditions on the voltage $\lambda$ and on the time step. Finally, we did some numerical simulations which show the behavior of the solution.
