When i noticed you typed laser clicking, i knew exactly what happened.. it was dropped.. you answered your own question. Same thing happened to me, had to get a new one.. or you can get a cheap one used at gamestop, or ebay.com or amazon.com. You can, worked for me sometimes, but when the game starts to load, and you hear the laser clicking, just tap the back of the psp until the game starts.. may or may not work, depending how hard you dropped it.

You might have PSP stop reading UMD discs,
First you will do some trouble shooting with what might be wrong with your PSP
first is the Disc Spinning motor. This will not let The disc in the
UMD spin. On a working PSP you will hear the disc start to spin up, then you can hear the
laser start to twitch, followed by the laser motor moving the laser down the
something stuck in the UMD gear, try to clean the gear of arm of dust, plastic, soda, and even hair.
and at the last is the actual laser itself. It will not focus the laser to read
the UMD disc.
Hopefully this help, Pls post back should you need additional information...!
You need to look intothe UMD drive. Press the little Black probe sticking up in the UMD drive. It is about 3/4 inch from left and 3/4 inch from top of the UMD drive. When you press it, look for the Disc spindle to rotate, and the Laser to light up and the Laser movement to occur. This will tell you a lot in what is working or not in the UMD drive. If the laser does not move left and right, or light up, you have a problem with the laser. move it manually with a pen or something, Only click it a couple of times. Try the black button thing again. If the Disc spindle motor does not spin. You probably need a new UMD drive. If you need a new UMD drive, click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen, Click on Video game Consoles. Pick out a good service out. I know one of them specializes in Playstations.You can get a new UMD drive replaced for under $60.
Well I would not use that UMD no more. The UMD could have jarred the Laser and keeping it 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 one way or another. Try a UMD, Not the UMD that broke it, to see if that fixed
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.
