I have had a Sony PSP for approximately 1 month since Christmeas and suddenly after playing for about 30 minutes it will "stick" and if we go to reload the UMD it will say disc cannot be read......Is my system junk or is there something I can do.....I "reconfigured"everything already like another comment said on this space but with no results......Help!!!
Had the same problem with my PSP. Didn't play any UMD games - tried cleaning laser, upgrading firmware, rebooting etc - no luck. Finally called SONY helpline, they told me to take the battery for 60 seconds & unbelievably it worked next power up on all my UMDs. Give it a try.

I was able to fix this on my BDP-S350 by resetting to factory defaults and pulling the power cord on the system. It takes approximately 1 minute for the capacitor to completely drain the power. Once I replugged and powered up the system I was able to play a disc that minutes before had said "cannot operate this disc." Hope that helps.

Have you tried updating the firmware on your psp? If you havent done that in a while, you may need to because as sony puts out new firmware updates, they update the umds as well, so that you need to have the most recent firmware to play the most recent movies and games. If this doesnt work, you could always try cleaning the cd, and downgrading the firmware, if it lets you, that is...
