Umd keeps reading


the umd drive is approaching its end of the life. you might need to buy http://www.consolezombie.com/store/slim-replacement-drive-laser-assembly-p-34.html and replace your umd drive. This is what i just did to my psp-2001.

PS: The above link is only for PSP-200x (slim version of PSP)

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.

Psp always read from umd,making it hang


Hi! I incounter this problem as well even without UMD its still loading and even I disable auto-start UMD still same so I tried reflashing the software but still same problem so I discover the solution before you turn-on your PSP try to open your UMD cover you'll see it will load faster then close again the cover once you see the battery and clock icon... The problem that causing this is the switch inside the UMD possible its stock-up or spoiled already!

PSP Slim making click sounds when UMD is in


it could be a problem with the inside mechanisms of the UMD dock. Better make sure that the insides are clean and free of dirt or small particles.

your laser is either broken or unaligned. you have 2 options:

Psp won't play all games


Have it sent in to the repair shop. I suspect the UMD drive has problems, because the clicking sound should NOT be there, only a whirring sound.

Psp having problem reading umd.


Hi Goodhelper,

Check the UMD for any kind of foriegn obstruction. You can use a pencil with an eraser to psin the UMD manually. Do this to check to be sure the UMD is not scrubbing or sticking inside its case. Try a different UMD to see if its the UMD or the UMD drive inside your PSP.

If you find it is the PSP. Services listed with Fixya can repair your PSP. Click on "REpair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. In the next screen, Click on "Video Game Consoles". Pick a good PSP repair service.
