long have you been using this CD ROM? I suspect the laser (lens) of the
CD ROM. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read
data/files on DVD.
To confirm if actually its a laser problem,
insert an Audio CD into the CD ROM and see if will play. If it plays,
then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio
CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.
a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the
problem, get a screw driver, open the CD ROM cover so that you can gain
access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens.
This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.
If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new CD ROM.
if the psp still turns on and the memory card reader works i suggest you pay to get your psp modded.with the psp modded you can play the games of the memory card with out even using the umd drive.i got mine modded a while backs and i love it you can even play emulators and homebrews.hopes this help
this worked for my ps2 i had the same prob. with psp off open the disc
door . without touching the lens move the lens assembly on its track up
and a few times return it to its original position and it should
load if that dont work than something got inside ( like dirt,
lint) or something is broke from being dropped and must be taken out
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.
hi i just fixed my sons it wasnt reading umd's every thing else worked so have a look were the threaded rod runs threw the laser, in the centre at the back of the laser there is a little tab with a stamped groove in it make sure the laser is up against the disk spinner when turned off push the tab against the threaded rod hopefully it has seated (you ned a good light plus i used long metal twesers to push it down, easier to see on 2000 model than the fat one but you can manage good luck)
Your Laser lens is dirty. You need to get some foam type ear swabs, not cotton, like Q-tip. You should be abkle to find these at a local drug store. Dampen the swab in something like Windex and swab the lens of the laser. Use the opposite end of the swab which should be dry to polish the lens delicately. This may get you back working again. If not your laser has much more severe problems, and probably needs to be replaced. In this case, click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then on the next screen select "Video Game Consoles" Pick a repair shop to service your PSP. If you think you want to do it yourself, be aware it is very easy to damage the PSP beyond reasonable repair.
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.
