Psp failed to update mlb 09 and now the screen is froze.

take off the battery and try again. If this doesn't help then the copy of the mlb game is defective.

Or you can just update your PSP through your computer (if you have internet)

Here's a link.

New game does not play-Msg says to clean disc but it is clean.

If the warranty is still good abandon trying to deal with bad repairs and demand a exchange, have them replace it.

- There may be a foreign object in your UMD drive

I Have PSP 1001 model

Sucks, I know... But cutting the disc holder sounds all wrong my friend; taking it into a repair center would be cheaper than buying a new one. I know others that Mod their broken PSP and add things like a Hard Drive to it; that's all at your own risk. Moreover, most still go out and buy another PSP that hasn't been modified.

Okay well what you can do is actually make sure that the lens is actually moving. Because this happened to mine. When i tried playing my Crisis core game it was spinning and i could hear the noise and it said it was reading but the lens wasn't moving. This later on i found out happened due to the fact that my brother dropped my psp. What i did to fix it was actually hit the side of the psp to my hands a few times and apparently the lens was stuck and it came undone and its been working fine since then. But if you still have your warranty on it you might want to send it back, if not then you have nothing to lose. Hope this helps.

Menu of the psp

Try a different disk? I've found that sometimes when you turn on the psp and you're in the game menu of the PSP menu, the UMD won't be there, but if you go over to music or something, and go back to game, it will have returned.
