Yes. The lasers are all the same the only difference is the size of the actual UMD enclosure which is only different with the phat (slightly thicker) just make sure its the right UMD tray.

Hi Bvogel987,

You probably need a new UMD drive. I have seen this many times. Try the following to restore the drive.
  1. Turn the PSP-1000 on,
  2. Open the UMD door
  3. Press down on the black peg poking up at 8 O-Clock in reference to the disc spindle.
  4. You should see the disc spin, and Laser light up. If either does not, then you need a new drive.
  5. If they do spin and light up, Take a toothpick, and wrap paper towel aorund the tip of the tooth pick,
  6. Dampen the toothpick swab with a Windex type cleaner.
  7. Swab the laser lens, and move the lens with you finger or toothpick to the right a couple of clicks. Place a new paper on the toothpick and dry the lens.
  8. Test. If this did not work, you still need a new Drive.
I run www.PlayStationClinic.com and we replace PSP-1000 UMD drive for $47.00 including return shipping and handling.

Disc doesnt spin , the lens dont move up and down , only lights red


Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

Hi there ive got a problem with my psp it doesnt want to read movies or games do you maybe know whats wrong with it


Hey abeyers,

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.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

HELP PSP WONT READ UMDS!!!!


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)

Umd problem


Hi amitpal,

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.

Psp will turn on but will not read any discs old or new


Hi BubbasMom,

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.
