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

One possible reason could be that the metal hook, connecting from the rim of the psp which originally attaches to the disk tray has bent. Dropping your psp can do this. There is a simple alternative to substitute paying for repairs. Simply unbend the hook and the tray should be able to attach to the disk tray, so it can close. However, there may be a number of reasons why it can't close. For example, if you have lost a small piece which is vital for the disk tray, the only change you'll get to fix it would be to rather buy the spare parts and chance doing it yourself, or simply take it to an electrical company, which you would probably pay a small fortune to get it fixed. Good luck.

My son psp beep when you put a game in and the umd does not come up can you help please


f you are experiencing issues when using a Universal Media Disc (UMD™) on the PSP system, try these troubleshooting options:

  • Issues with PlayStation®Store content Click here for help with content purchased from the PlayStation Store.
  • Restore Default Settings Restore Default settings will default the PSP system to its original settings. A setting change may be the reason the PSP system is having difficulties. Click here to learn how to restore default settings on the PSPgo / PSP system.
  • Confirm UMD is properly inserted

    Make sure the UMD is properly inserted with the label facing the back of the PSP system. Try removing the UMD and reinserting it.
    Please note, it is normal for the PSP system to make noises while it is reading from a UMD.

    For PSP-1001, slide the latch to open the UMD door. For the PSP-2001 and PSP-3001, simply lift the door open.

  • Try playing the UMD on a different PSP system If possible, try playing the UMD on a different PSP system. If the disc still does not function properly, it might need to be replaced. If the disc does function properly, the PSP system may need service, see PSP Service for details.
  • Try playing a different UMD on the PSP system If possible, 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.
  • Check for moisture Do not let the PSP system or any PSP® accessories come in contact with liquid. Also check for moisture condensation in the PSP system. If moisture condensation occurs, remove the disc from the PSP and do not use the PSP until the condensation has evaporated, which can take an hour or two. In general, if any part of the PSP gets wet, discontinue use until it is completely dry.
  • Check the regional code Check the regional code on the UMD™ Video. The only regional codes that the North American PSP® is tested to work properly with are "ALL" and "1.
    "

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

Yes, I would recommend replacing the door. That sounds to be the main problem. It shouldn't be too hard, in fact I found some instructions for you to use, here.

Good luck,

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
