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!!!

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.
Ok does your psp read the disk and it shows up on the screen but doesn't then u might have internal errors that don't show up if your psp doesn't read the disc then goto the the place you bought and they will see why it's not reading the game don't try to fox it yourself just let the pro's do it u can do more damage on your psp if you are not careful pls rate and chose my answer helpfull

dirty, bent, or damaged UMD discs there are a number of other reasons

your son probably dropped his PSP at the time and the UMD drive broke or if your son says he didnt drop it you can get a cutip and softly clean your UMD reader the little bubble sorta in your PSP be carful while doing that
I fixed It Thank You Almighty God in Heaven I have the solution... All I did was take a cotton swab and rub it against the lensn it didnt even need any alcohol or windex hahahahahaha try it . It worked for me. I goin to play, later :)
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.
