Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

PSP - Games will not read

Hiya, Hope you can help. We have a problem with a PSP - it stays at the menu screen when inserting a disc. It does not seem to spin. We have tried restoring the default settings but the probelm does not resolve.

Also, we are in Australia (having bought the console in Britain) and can't find the local support...

Any ideas?

Seems to be a hardware problem.

@dahaka

I said to you the UMD games are universal so there are no restrictions like you said, only the UMD videos have region code!

It's never too unfair to rate your answer as Inappropriate.

My psp will not play Movies Games, or any installed Software


When you put the game in, there is a latch inside the back of the psp where you insert the game, at the bottom the psp, that when you put the game in, it tells the psp that a game has been inserted and to load the game. When you put the game in, look and see if you see a silver latch that the game should push. If you see it, make sure the game is pushing down on it when inserted. If it is not there, or it still does not work, you will need to get it serviced at a game store or at a shop.

Sony playstation 3 wont read or load game disc


Hi
You are covered by a 12 month warranty from Sony it sounds like the laser is not reading the discs but check to see if the auto start feature is turned on in the settings menu as then the game will automatically start when the disc is inserted
I hope this helps Nick

Psp ( i cant get games to play )


Have you inserted the game disc UMD into the PSP itself? You have to wait a few seconds after you turn it on before the game icon will be visible in the main menu screen before you can access the game. When it's active and you have the game icon selected press the "X" button to start the game.

Menu of the psp


Try a different disk? I've found that sometimes when you turn on the psp and you're in the game menu of the PSP menu, the UMD won't be there, but if you go over to music or something, and go back to game, it will have returned.
