Psp not reading games


Sounds like the laser is shot or the door is not making a good connection when its closed. So the system has no clue there is anything inserted. This could be from a bad latch, fried laser, or something on the motherboard itself. Does the spindle motor inside try to spin the disc?

Will not play games or even see games loaded on Sony PSP 100


if u talking about disc games probably doesnt work because the laser is bad or emulators is cause probably the emulator doesnt have games or the psp doesnt apply the requiredments of the emulator.

My PSP has this odd problem with it's discs.... Often, it just stops reading them, often at very annoying times. Sometimes it goes for VERY long periods of time without any problems, others I cant even go...


Hrm, I've seen DVD players with a similar problem. The solution was to dismantle them and apply fresh lubricant to the gears that control the movement of the laser, or to replace those gears if they're broken.
Seems like that technique could work for a PSP, but I imagine it would be more difficult.

My psp won't load umd's and all i hear is a scrathing sound


The UMD laser might be dirty or broken. Open up the UMD drive and give the laser a clean with a lint-free cloth. Then pop the disk back in and try again. If that doesn't work, you will need to get the PSP repaired or buy a replacement laser and do it yourself.

It says its loading but, its not playing


Sounds like the laser is either dirty or has gone bad. In order to know though, take a can of air and blow it gently onto the laser, then after this try a few games and if it starts to read them then you know that dust was the problem.

If the games still don't read then you need a new laser.

PSP 2003 laser problem


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.

You might have PSP stop reading UMD discs, First you will do some trouble shooting with what might be wrong with your PSP unit.

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 rails.

2nd is 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...!

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)
