Something more than likely chipped off/broke from the impact of the drop. Have you tried opening the PSP? *Note - opening your PSP will void your warranty.

Psp wont read the disc unless you hold the door shut w/o ...

If you dropped it, then the reader may be a little messed up. If the case around the disc is popped open a little bit, closing it all the way might stop the disc from spinning, resulting in not reading the disc. The only thing I recommend is to contact Customer Support on the Playstation website. They might be able to help you fix the problem or have you send it in.

Problem with umd door

i have the same problem, you should get a psp case and it will stay closed. Get the one were you could still play your psp. Get a clear case. I have a hard clear case that goes around my whole psp except for the buttons in the front. It keeps the umd cover closed

My psp umd door wont close properly, what is the problem

maybe something on the inside is moved because ive openened a psp before and the thing in the back of the screen is like a hook that holds the screen shut. or maybe the little thing in your umd door that holds that little closing thing broke off. u can solve this also by hacking your psp and running the games trough the M33 driver. =D

You want to make sure that there is nothing jamming it so that it can close. If there is something that you can get yourself then try to get it and see if it works if not as stupid as this sound you should try this. Use duct tape!!!
