Used psp wont play games?

If the PSP that you bought is pre-owned... then..

..bring it back to 'Gamestop' & tell them truthfully that the PSP you bought doesn't play UMDs.

.. maybe there're problem's with the UMDs? Are they pre-owned?

If the PSP is brand new when you bought it, you can claim for FREE repairs, or perhaps a replacement from SONY! Mostly warrantys are just 1yr period, so you better 'do what you have to do' before Christmas!

When you insert a UMD into the PSP, then what happens? What appears on the screen?

- Do you hear the UMD drive spinning for quite awhile, but not loading up under the Game column?

My psp umds or iso's arent working!!?

uhh your umd laser might be bad if it doesn't read at all. if it is bad then you might try buying a broken psp with a good laser. you have to be EXTREMELY careful replacing it though. my friend snapped his mother board, and if you do this, you are screwed.

PSP will not play games

What do you mean?

UMDs or Games saved in the Memory Stick?

If UMDs, your UMDs are scratched or the PSPs UMD Reader is damaged.

Games in Memory Stick, I don't know....

But if you play games and the PSP automatically enters the Home button, it's a virus. Fix it or Back up your PSP Files, and Reformat the Stick...
