1) That UMD isn't working..
..or
2) Your UMD drive isn't working.

Either one, or both.

- If you try other UMDs... if they work, that means this UMD we're talking about here isn't working.
- If you try other UMDs... if they don't work, that means your UD drive is faulty.

If your PSP is still under warranty... then bring it back to SONY.
.. or exchange UMDs from where-ever you bought it from.
.. depends which scenario!

When we turn it on, we can't get a game to start. Is there a way to reset it and start fresh?


Can you clearly tell me the problem? Did you do these steps?
Switch on PSP>insert UMD>wait for auto start
(I am guessing that your PSP detects a game once it is inserted)

In addition, what series of PSP do you own? (it has to be a PSP1000, 2000 or 3000- if you are in the US, the serial will be 1001, 2001 or 3001)
If the UMD is not detected at all, the UMD sensor maybe broken.
In a PSP1000, there is a small sensor (which looks like a grey 'tooth' that sticks out from the motherboard when you open the UMD door and peer in) and if this is broken, a UMD will not work. This sensor signals to the motherboard that there is a UMD inside. On 2000 and 3000 PSPs, there are two sensors; one grey 'tooth' and another that is located near the UMD door. This signals the motherboard that the UMD door is closed. If one of these sensors are broken, a UMD will not work.
I hope this helps you out, please post back and let us know!

My umd is not working how can i fix this


The problem is that when your brother dropped it ,, he must have broken something in the reader , where now the reader cant be able to read the UMD disks an easy solution is to make there is no dust in the UMD reading place or trapped in the UMD, second of all if the reader is really broken you can go to the nearest psp fix shop he will tell you the problem and whether you wanna fix it or not... finally, the most preferred way is by giving up on UMD and start using psp isos downloaded from the internet for free,, all you need is a memory stick preferred 2gb or higher... and a CFW which u can find tutorials all over youtube finally you just play the games off of your psp memory stick for free... hope it helps ^^

Psp always read from umd,making it hang


Hi! I incounter this problem as well even without UMD its still loading and even I disable auto-start UMD still same so I tried reflashing the software but still same problem so I discover the solution before you turn-on your PSP try to open your UMD cover you'll see it will load faster then close again the cover once you see the battery and clock icon... The problem that causing this is the switch inside the UMD possible its stock-up or spoiled already!

Psp having problem reading umd.


Hi Goodhelper,

Check the UMD for any kind of foriegn obstruction. You can use a pencil with an eraser to psin the UMD manually. Do this to check to be sure the UMD is not scrubbing or sticking inside its case. Try a different UMD to see if its the UMD or the UMD drive inside your PSP.

If you find it is the PSP. Services listed with Fixya can repair your PSP. Click on "REpair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. In the next screen, Click on "Video Game Consoles". Pick a good PSP repair service.

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
