You have probably only 2 options on this one.
1. Try using compressed air. If there is anything keeping the disc from being read, i.e. dust on the lens or some other obstruction, you don't want to touch the laser. Open up the UMD tray and spray out the inside of the tray. This will remove anything that might be causing the system to stop reading discs.
2. If that doesn't work, then the only other option would be to call Sony. It won't be fun if you're out of warranty. The system does carry a 1 year limited warranty, but this should be covered. Oh, Sony can look up the date of purchase if you don't have your receipt, so don't 'fold' if they tell you that you need the receipt. Just tell them to look it up by the serial number.
UMD is Universal Media Disc, its a small disc are used for PSP. press the "eject" button on the top to open the disc tray. Usually the problem its not from the UMD, but from the console.
The first check the version you are running on psp, >> Go to the PSP Menu and move across to the
"Settings Menu". Scroll down, select to "System Settings" >>
"System Information" and you should see version of your PSP. If the UMD has a high version than ur console, u need to update ur psp.
You should check to see if another UMD will work first. Also try them in another PSP. If your sure your PSP is not reading Discs, then and only then, Clean the Laser lens carefully. Using a strong flashlight and magnifying glass, look into the UMD drive with the UMD door open and look for debris like hair or lint, and also dirt and dust. A black switch pokes up on the left inside the UMD drive. Its a little black stick. When you press down on this Black stick, your UMD disc motor should spin for second or two. The UMD laser lens should light up when your press this switch. If any of this does not happen, you need to replace the UMD drive. If you need someone to do this which if you have never done it, you need some knowledge big time.
