    Could you give a bit more information than "it doesn't work"?  What happens when trying to play a game?  Is it a PSP slim or fat?  Can you get to the menus?  Is it seeing that a UMD is even inserted?  Is the firmware up to dare?


    Stuff like that will help others to be able to better give you a solution that will fix the problem.  The more specific you are, the better we can do.  Don't worry about being too detailed, it's better to give too much information than not enough when it comes to technical issues.

My son put a umd in backwards and now his PSP will not play. He has a 3001, when he tried to close the door, something broke and some small black plastic parts fell out - a couple - now it wont play. Any...


I believe the closing button is the problem. There is a small pin that when you close the backside of the psp, it will push the this pin to run the UMD game. If this is torn apart. You no longer play the UMD game. Despite that you can play still play games by putting PSP software games. But you need a chicken software and a gen-c programs to be able to convert it to 6.31 version. I have these programs and games. I can send you for free. here is my email: reguver@yahoo.com

Hi Voltagehog,

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.

Sony PSP wont play umd


Same with my PSP. My son accidentally broken a spring sensor for the UMD when you close the UMD cover of the PSP. That's why the drive doesn't recognize if there's a UMD. Sony Service Center here in the Philippines doesn't have a replacement part for this.
