Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
My umd's will not load- the laser does not spin either. help?
Well unfortunately there is bad news a distant friend had this problem it turned out to be that the laser had infact burn out .This is natural as the heat and current eventually destroy this.
The solution is to get it serviced professionally from sony or if your tech savvy you can open up the psp and replace the laser yourself.Google/youtube is good in this case.

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.
If you know what's wrong you can replace the problem here
