My psp does not read any games what do i do


First, check the discs for scratches. If there are any, there is your problem. Remove the battery. Then, clean the laser lens with a very fine textured cloth, moistened with rubbing alcohol. Leave the UMD drive open to let it air dry for 5 minutes. Reinsert the battery, power on, and everything should work. If not, your lens are broken and you will need to install a replacement.

Hi there ive got a problem with my psp it doesnt want to read movies or games do you maybe know whats wrong with it


Hey abeyers,

One of the most common reasons why a PSP would not be able to recognize discs is if the lens itself has become dirty. Dirt, lint, and other objects can prevent the PSP’s laser from reading the discs correctly, which may (in some cases) prompt an error message.

You may wish to try cleaning the lens yourself to see if this resolves the issue. If you are unsure how to do this, you may always refer to the troubleshooting FAQ’s in your PSP owner’s manual documentation for instructions, or should be able to obtain a lens cleaning kit from a local retail store.

In the event that cleaning the lens doesn’t solve the problem, you may need to contact Sony directly for further assistance. Most manufacturers can provide phone technical support while the manufacturer’s warranty is still in effect, and some retailers are able to provide you with other options if you purchased any additional coverage (such as repair or replacement plans) that may have been offered at the time of sale.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Psp will turn on but will not read any discs old or new


Hi BubbasMom,

Bubbas PSP has a problem with either the UMD laser, or the mechanism that moves it back and forth. Open the UMD door and Clean the lens with a Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass Cleaner. Swab it with the dry end after you use the glass cleaner.
If that doesnt fix it. You probably have something jamming the Laser from moving. Sometimes you can clear this by forcing the laser to move some. You will hear it click a few times. Once you click it a few times on way or another. Try a UMD to see if that fixed it.

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.

Hi Glenpark, Eithr the UMD or UMD laser is dirty.  If it will play other UMD's the UMD is dirty.  I think Gamestop has a device that helps broken and dirty UMD's.  If it will not play any UMD, then you have a problem with your UMD laser.  You can try to clean your laser lens.  Use a Q-tip.  Dampen, not soak,  a Q-tip with a window cleaner. NOT Alcohol. Swab the lens thoroughly with the cleaner, then use the dry Q-tip to dry and polish the laser. Try hard to not leave any lint.

If you UMD still does not function, you need to send it back to SONY. Contact them at 1-800-345-7669.  If you cant get them to fix it Contact The Playstation Clnic at Repairtech@Playstationclinic.com

Hi Jleew,

 

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.

I can do this for you if you're in the USA for $55 including a New UMD drive, REturn Shipping, and 90 day warranty. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com

Psps does load any discs


Hi Tubston1980,

 

What we have here, is a failure to read the UMD.  Troubleshooting 101,  open the UMD door and depress the little black spur sticking up about 1/8" and it is about 3/4" in and to the left.  Once your depress the Black spur, You should see the the little disc motor spin and the laser beam light up.  Do not stare into the laser. This tells you that at least the laser is lighting and the motor is turning,  Now, get a Q-tip and dampen it with Isopropyl rubbing alcohol.  Rub the lens with the dampened q-tip.  Use the dry end of the Q-tip to dry the lens. Look carefully to see if any lint or foriegn obsjects are inside the UMD disc drive.  If you see anything, get it out. Look at the white gear in that back to see if anything is on it. Clean it if necessary, I know its very close quarters and hard to do.

I repair PSP's with this problem that do not get fixed after cleaning. I can replace your UMD drive with a full brand new drive for $47 which includes Return shipping. Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic.com if you need further assitance.
