This unfortunately is a fairly common problem with PSPs. I would recommend giving Sony a call, there's a good chance it's still under warranty. Their number is 1-800-345-SONY (7669)

SOURCE: psp laser is not lighting up
First check all the connections of the laser pod, also check if the laser of the new laser pod is broken.
Check if there is still warranty on the new laser pod, if so go back to the store where you bought it.

It would look like this if your UMD door was off.
You should open the UMD door and carefully manually move the laser to the right side of the assembly.
Use a sharp THIN probe to manually move the WHITE gear under the metal housing. It is quite hard to see it in the photos so I put a red star around it.
I usually try and scrape the gears themselves to make sure there is no gunk or debris in the gear.
After this try and see if it is reading UMD again.
This fixes it about 35% of the time.
If none of this is working, it is time to open your PSP unit Or send it in for repair.
