Hi Voltagehog,

You need to look intothe UMD drive. Press the little Black probe sticking up in the UMD drive. It is about 3/4 inch from left and 3/4 inch from top of the UMD drive. When you press it, look for the Disc spindle to rotate, and the Laser to light up and the Laser movement to occur. This will tell you a lot in what is working or not in the UMD drive. If the laser does not move left and right, or light up, you have a problem with the laser. move it manually with a pen or something, Only click it a couple of times. Try the black button thing again. If the Disc spindle motor does not spin. You probably need a new UMD drive.
If you need a new UMD drive, click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen, Click on Video game Consoles. Pick out a good service out. I know one of them specializes in Playstations.You can get a new UMD drive replaced for under $60.

PSP won't play any games

the reason the umd wont load is because someone shut the psp off when the game was loading. so whoever did that just messed up your psp. i know cause someone did it to mine now i have to get it fixed or buy a new one. and to get the psp fixed its not guna be cheap.
