Most likely the laser is weak. It has been awhile since I have changed a laser in a psp. But first off you should clean the laser with a q-tip and isopropyl alcohol and dry it with the other end of the q-tip. It doesn't take much for them to not be able to read a disc. If it still doesn't work you will need to replace the laser if you aren't that great at working on electronics or very small things you need to find someone to do it for you.
Hi! I incounter this problem as well even without UMD its still loading and even I disable auto-start UMD still same so I tried reflashing the software but still same problem so I discover the solution before you turn-on your PSP try to open your UMD cover you'll see it will load faster then close again the cover once you see the battery and clock icon... The problem that causing this is the switch inside the UMD possible its stock-up or spoiled already!
If your PSP isn't reading
games and/or movies and the problem isn't that your trying to play
dirty, bent, or damaged UMD discs there are a number of other reasons
your PSP is not reading disks correctly = - Your UMD motor may be malfunctioning.
- Your laser may have worn down from use over time.
- Your UMD drive tray may be bent.
- There may be a foreign object in your UMD drive
* disks fail to load
* extremely slow loading
* strange whirring noise when trying to read disks
For whatever reason your PSP has stopped reading games and/or movies we
will get your PSP back to you and playing like like new fast! Our price
includes labor, parts, and return shipping via priority mail.

My sons had this happen to him this morning... we tried to reset and hard reset... nothing worked... after seeing a bunch of postings about the laser, I used a pen to move move the laser with the unit off... I just pushed it sideways and slid it out of position a bit... anyway, it worked... it's almost like the laser was just stuck...
try putting in a UMD that what i did for mine games works find if that dont work go into recovery mode turn off the psp system and turn it back on and hold the r button and go to configuration then go to use no umd and enable it then exit then the games should work just find.
Same with my PSP. My son accidentally broken a spring sensor for the UMD when you close the UMD cover of the PSP. That's why the drive doesn't recognize if there's a UMD.
Sony Service Center here in the Philippines doesn't have a replacement part for this.
