My sons psp won't load any of his games he's got any suggestions

I would recommend contacting Sony (there should be a number for you to call located in the PSP's system manual). More than likely, they will need to open up the PSP if it's not detecting any games at all, or else you will have to replace the whole system.

Broken PSP

when you say scanner do you mean laser that reads the umd?

you could replace the laser from one off ebay
but the thing with replacing lasers is that adjusting the laser so it reads the disk it tricky

here is a shop that repairs lasers in psps

or if you want to do it your self

also you say it is 1 year old from brand new? bought from the shops
call sony as it may just be under warenty

Psp won't turn on

Try to charge your PSP with your son's PSP charger and your problem should be solved if so your PSP charger is faulty.

Games not loading from disc

Start by cleaning the UMD drive, you can do this with an alcohol-free CD wipe wrapped around a cotton bud (Q-tip) or preferably with an air duster (available from any good hardware or electronics store). Next clean the disk(s), you can do this by turning the centre of the disk with one finger and holding an alcohol-free CD wipe to the disk surface with another, however you can buy UMD cleaning tools from most large game stores that make the job much easier.
