It seems like the lens may have some trouble reading your UMA game disks, but you should try to use different games to confirm that, it that is the case, you should get in contact with sony and talk about repair or warranty replacement options.

PSP unable to read UMD discs


You will probably need a laser replacement. Check your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. If not you will have to find a laser online and attempt to replace it yourself. It's fairly simple.

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...!

PSP Wont play games, and is going slow on other things! [HELP]


Hi,
you,ve damaged the UMD Drive, or Laser.
hence disk read errors.
you,ll have to obtain a replacement UMD Drive ( e-bay )
Or alternatively you could look into firmware flashing and pandoras Battery.
This way you can play games from a memory stick.
