    when i try to play the umd game it never reads it

  • Noe22 Feb 22, 2008

    When I put in any USB movies or games they do not load onto my psp. A message pops up saying "The disc could not be read." I bought a new UMB disc and it still said the same thing. I'm guessing it's not the disc, but the system itself. Is there any way I can fix it myself?

MY psp is unable to read any UMD discs. I tried two different discs and the psp said, "The disc could not be read". The psp games were working before on my psp but I don't know what happened to...


Did you have a firmware upgrade? if you can detail your current firmware I might be able to help you. There are higher custom firmware (CFW) that has known issues with UMD reading. Don't worry, it's about your UMD, you can even try the same UMD to your friend's PSP and Im pretty it will run. It's your firmware that needs to be changed. However, you may need to downgrade first before upgrading to a new firmware again to solve your problem. Please get back here when you have the details...

My psp won't read umd


Several things can cause this. The lens might be scratched up, or the umd might be scrached. The laser might not work anymore, or the entire mechanism could be shot. You have to give WAAAY more info than "my psp won't read umds"

My son's psp (the older fat version) has stopped reading discs


Not sure is this actual PSP or play station. If it is Play station It is very possible that there is problem with laser that reads disks. Try to by PSP cleaner and run it and this might fix the issue.

Hi Jleew,

 

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.

I can do this for you if you're in the USA for $55 including a New UMD drive, REturn Shipping, and 90 day warranty. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
