My PSP doesn't seem to read the UMD's I put icon shows up under the game symbol on the mian menu...please shed some ligt on this for me. thanks

make sure the UMD is not dirty or scratch or damage in any way. make sure the lens is clean. if your psp is able to read other UMD's then it would mean that the UMD is damaged. if PSP is not able to read other UMD's then you would need to get the lens replaced.

My sons psp game menu is not showing the umd option what is wrong with it cheers

If memory serves (I lost my PSP while moving) the UMD menu only appears when a UMD is inserted and recognized. If a UMD is inserted but the menu does not come up then either the UMD is bad or the laser is defective.

Psps does load any discs

Ok Crowd,

All of you need to send your PSP off for repair. The UMD drives not reading is common fault of the PSP and the drive will need to be replaced. The power on Problem is possiblly a defective motherboard. They can be repaired.

Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then select "Video Game Consoles" on the next screen. Pick a good REpair shop that has experience in repairing PSP's. Ask them if they know what a UMD is. Then Ask them if they have ever replaced a UMD drive. If so they know what they are doing. Find a good price

Where is the UMD?

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. 

plz visit my blog, for psp update guide.
