Psp not recognising game discs

We bought a PSP for our son last xmas. A few weeks ago it decided not to recognise the game discs anymore. Im quite handy with a PC but know nothing about these things. Weve also misplaced the receipt, but a few friends of mine seem to think it may be a software problem. Can you please help?
I have also connected the psp to my pc and had a look in the root dir and there doesnt seem to be any information in there whatsoever. I mean nothing, in any of the folders, does this mean there is no operating system? does it even have an operating system, who knows? not me for sure

The operating system is in the flasho and flash1 you wud not see it by merely connecting usb. If its not a lens problem or board, den I believe u shud check the umds because they are very sensitive and get scratched easily

Cant get games to play on my sons psp

This may be a number of problems. The disc might be scratched or damaged. Or there could be dust on the leans.

You say it's a second hand PSP? In that case, you may need to repare it. I'm not quite sure where to go to get repares. Sorry.
