Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
Everything else on it works but whenever i put in a umd it starts to spin but makes a scratching sound as it spins and doesnt do anything
The UMD laser might be dirty or broken. Open up the UMD drive and give the laser a clean with a lint-free cloth. Then pop the disk back in and try again. If that doesn't work, you will need to get the PSP repaired or buy a replacement laser and do it yourself.

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.
