My psp does not read any games what do i do


First, check the discs for scratches. If there are any, there is your problem. Remove the battery. Then, clean the laser lens with a very fine textured cloth, moistened with rubbing alcohol. Leave the UMD drive open to let it air dry for 5 minutes. Reinsert the battery, power on, and everything should work. If not, your lens are broken and you will need to install a replacement.

Umd drive keeps opening


sounds like an old psp, does it pop other games out?
if no, then it is a game problem, if yes, clean the lazers that read the umd.

Psp wont read disc


Hi,
your lasers Dirty or damaged.
These usually last about 14-18 months sometimes longer, depending on amount of use. ( operating hours ) your best solution, is to try blowing into the UMD Drive, may be lucky and remove a speck of dust. Or you,ll need a UMD Replacement.
Best-cheapest place is e-bay.
You,ll also get fitting instructions. Alternatively is to take it to a repair shop. But don,t expect much change out of £75.00.

Hi Jleew,

 

You should check to see if another UMD will work first.  Also try them in another PSP.  If your sure your PSP is not reading Discs, then and only then, Clean the Laser lens carefully.  Using a strong flashlight and magnifying glass, look into the UMD drive with the UMD door open and look for debris like hair or lint, and also dirt and dust.  A black switch pokes up on the left inside the UMD drive.  Its a little black stick.  When you press down on this Black stick, your UMD disc motor should spin for  second or two.  The UMD laser lens should light up when your press this switch.  If any of this does not happen, you need to replace the UMD drive. If you need someone to do this which if you have never done it, you need some knowledge big time.

I can do this for you if you're in the USA for $55 including a New UMD drive, REturn Shipping, and 90 day warranty. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
