Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Psp won't read disk......loading circle continously shows.

Son was playing and mid game psp stopped reading disk but gave no error code or cannot read disk message. Please tell me what to do to try and troubleshoot or fix. I have 2 PSPs. Was saving 1 for parts because it wouldn't stay on. Turned off after a few secs of turning on. Took out battery and connected straight to power adapter and it plays fine. Battery is good b/c it is in other PSP and working fine. Please help!!!

Error 80010087


Check the firmware of your PSP. Some games may not work if the latest firmware is not installed.

You usually get this message if the UMD has errors reading or the UMD is not present or was ejected in the middle of playing a game. You should try testing your PSP with other disks, if it doesn't have the same problem with other disks then your UMD is most likely scratched or damaged.

If you are using a modded PSP then you will get this error if you load a game from the memory stick without having a disk inserted in the drive. Or if the game that you are trying to load requires a higher firmware version. You will need to install a higher modded firmware to fix the error if that is your case.

Hope this helps.

PSP Wont play games, and is going slow on other things! [HELP]


Hi,
you,ve damaged the UMD Drive, or Laser.
hence disk read errors.
you,ll have to obtain a replacement UMD Drive ( e-bay )
Or alternatively you could look into firmware flashing and pandoras Battery.
This way you can play games from a memory stick.
