Can you clearly tell me the problem? Did you do these steps? Switch on PSP>insert UMD>wait for auto start (I am guessing that your PSP detects a game once it is inserted)
In addition, what series of PSP do you own? (it has to be a PSP1000, 2000 or 3000- if you are in the US, the serial will be 1001, 2001 or 3001) If the UMD is not detected at all, the UMD sensor maybe broken. In a PSP1000, there is a small sensor (which looks like a grey 'tooth' that sticks out from the motherboard when you open the UMD door and peer in) and if this is broken, a UMD will not work. This sensor signals to the motherboard that there is a UMD inside. On 2000 and 3000 PSPs, there are two sensors; one grey 'tooth' and another that is located near the UMD door. This signals the motherboard that the UMD door is closed. If one of these sensors are broken, a UMD will not work. I hope this helps you out, please post back and let us know!
Switch on on your PSP and remove the UMD that might be inside
When you open up the UMD door and look down inside you will see the Laser assembly.
If you look to the left there is a black tab that sticks up, this tells the PSP that there is a UMD in the drive.
If you press this down with a small probe, you should see the disc motor spin and the laser light up red (do not stare directly at the laser)
Inspect to see If the Motor is spinning or not.is it moving slightly?
Take the parts out and see if there is another problem also.
If the laser is not lighting up then it could be the laser,check the cables to the PSP and see if there is a bad connection.
If both are running well then put a disc in and get your ear up close so you can hear what is going on in there.
On a working PSP you will hear the disc start to spin up, then you can hear the laser start to twitch, followed by the laser motor moving the laser down the rails.
Can you hear the disc spin up? If not I would take the disc out again and press the switch with your probe again. if the disc motor is spinning again, look around to see if the metal housing is obstructing the disc when you put it in.. there could be too much pressure for the disc to spin freely
Can you hear the Laser focus? This might be hard to hear it will sound like a little tick. If you cant hear it tick I would move on and inspect this internally later.
Can you hear the Laser move down the rail? This will be a smooth sound of the gears, it should not be a really clicky sound.
If you can't hear it move down the track OR it is very clicky do the fpllowing;
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.
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.
If none of this is working, it is time to open your PSP unit
If you are able to find out what's wrong from the troubleshooting steps above you can replace the problem by
Replacing the UMD, Assembly,Replacing UMD Disc Motor,Replacing UMD Laser Motor or by Replacing PSP Motherboard
If it's for all UMD's, you should check something out. Open up the UMD door and leave it open for this test. There's going to be a little lever inside that you need to push down. Looking at the UMD door from behind, screen facing away from you, the little lever is going to be on the top right, you'll see it. Push it down, while the PSP is on and look at where the laser is. You should see a red light coming from it, and it'll be obvious. If you don't see the light, your laser is broken.
There are 3 types of PSP around, starting with model number 1000, this is the first PSP also known as PSP Fat. PSP model 2000 series, wich has a better screen and more memory on board, it is also thiner als the previous model. PSP Model 3000 series wich has a microphone and a better screen.
The body parts of all PSP models are diferent, this has to do with the placings of internal hardware components.
Remove the battery from your PSP, underneath is a sticker located with the model serial number, if you know the serial number, you'll know for what PSP type you need to order parts for.
If you're asking how to insert a UMD into your PSP you just need to slide the switch on the top of your PSP to open the UMD hatch and then push the UMD in with the shiny disk side pointing toward the inside of your PSP and the rounded part pointing down. If that isn't the problem please clarify.
i have the same problem, you should get a psp case and it will stay closed. Get the one were you could still play your psp. Get a clear case. I have a hard clear case that goes around my whole psp except for the buttons in the front. It keeps the umd cover closed
The switch has a small plastic tit that moves a thin metal piece to the side so that the hook on the UMD door is released. If the little tit is broken off it cannot move the metal slide. The metal piece is not likely to break. If it feels like the slide switch is not pushing anything when you slide it, remove it which ever way you see fit. Use a small nail or tack to slide the metal piece inside towards the center of the PSP. This should open the umd door.
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.
