    When you turn my PSP on, the power button turns green but the screen never comes up. After several seconds, the power on green lite, turns off.

I had the same problem with my psp today. It worked fine the last time i used a UMD disk 2 days ago. When i turned it on this morning, i heard an odd noise. Perhaps the motor waering out. I think i would have heard this sympthom before today though. Anyway, i have had it for almost two years, never dropped always cased. I called Sony and all they can do is charge me 89.00 to send me a replacement(refurb). I could wait and just buy the new slim PSP coming out on Sept.9 but them i would still have a broken PSP. so i gave them the 89.00 bucks and hopefully in 7-10 days i will have a working PSP again.

Go and return this to Sony if it is under warranty or go to a nearby repair shop to fix it. I believe the diode has been damaged from the qtip being used. Those lasers are delicate things.

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.

My psp isnt playing a brand new game. it wont load the umd. the umd is pretty clean. i wait for it to load and it wont.


Below where the UMD game appears on screen try the button below that should say 'Update PSP'. The game could have an update for the PSP and won't play without it. If this doesn't work contact Sony Website Forums and see if anybody there has had the problem.

Psp not reading disks


One of two things:

1.Your UMDs are scratched or broken
2.Your PSP lens are malfunctioning

I suggest getting a different UMD, or, if the problem persists, replace the lens on your PSP.

Psp(1001)won't read umd games or movies


If your PSP isn't reading games and/or movies and the problem isn't that your trying to play dirty, bent, or damaged UMD discs there are a number of other reasons your PSP is not reading disks correctly =

- Your UMD motor may be malfunctioning.
- Your laser may have worn down from use over time.
- Your UMD drive tray may be bent.
- There may be a foreign object in your UMD drive


Common symptoms

* disks fail to load
* extremely slow loading
* strange whirring noise when trying to read disks

Psp-lazer ain't reading the games


This link should help.

  • Make sure the UMD is properly inserted with the label facing the back of the PSP system. Try removing the UMD and reinserting it.
  • Try playing the UMD on a different PSP system. If the UMD plays, the original PSP system may be the problem. If the UMD does not play, the problem may be isolated to the UMD itself.
  • Try playing a different UMD on the PSP system. If another UMD plays, the original UMD may be the problem. If none of the UMD's play, the problem may be isolated to the PSP system.
  • Make sure the exposed UMD surface and plastic casing is not damaged[2]. Do not use if plastic casing is cracked, collapsed, or if foreign materials have entered inside the UMD enclosure.

Hi Glenpark, Eithr the UMD or UMD laser is dirty.  If it will play other UMD's the UMD is dirty.  I think Gamestop has a device that helps broken and dirty UMD's.  If it will not play any UMD, then you have a problem with your UMD laser.  You can try to clean your laser lens.  Use a Q-tip.  Dampen, not soak,  a Q-tip with a window cleaner. NOT Alcohol. Swab the lens thoroughly with the cleaner, then use the dry Q-tip to dry and polish the laser. Try hard to not leave any lint.

If you UMD still does not function, you need to send it back to SONY. Contact them at 1-800-345-7669.  If you cant get them to fix it Contact The Playstation Clnic at Repairtech@Playstationclinic.com
