    My system is not loading any games, just showing the icon on bottom right of the screen and telling me that it could not read the game. Its making a really funny sound and "clicking". I tried pushing in the button like you said, and the spindle is not spinning or anything. This is a brand new unit, and it was working fine, but now it just wont read any umd's for some reason. Is there a way to fix this problem?

My guess is you used a regular Q-tip to clean the laser lens and it left cotton hairs on the lens. I like to use the foam swabs. You can press the little swtich sticking up inside the UMD compartment. It is on the left and back about 1 inch. When you press it you should see your Laser light up and the spindle spin. This will tell you if the laser and spindlge work. You can physically move to Laser over to the right a few clicks and put the UMD back in it and look to see if the laser moves left and right. if it still does light up, spin the spindle and move left and right, then it probably will need its lens cleaned.

Ello. My PSP won't read UMDs. The loading


Most likely the laser is weak. It has been awhile since I have changed a laser in a psp. But first off you should clean the laser with a q-tip and isopropyl alcohol and dry it with the other end of the q-tip. It doesn't take much for them to not be able to read a disc. If it still doesn't work you will need to replace the laser if you aren't that great at working on electronics or very small things you need to find someone to do it for you.

Try using a cd cleaner as it may be a dirty lens.

Psp hanging


The circle in the lower right hand corner of the PSP screen is showing that a disc is being read. I would say take out any discs you're using and try to run things directly off of the memory card. I'm not going to dive into anything else, because Custom Firmware on the PSP is a tricky situation that you really shouldn't be asking about on FixYa.com.

You might have PSP stop reading UMD discs, First you will do some trouble shooting with what might be wrong with your PSP unit.

first is the Disc Spinning motor. This will not let The disc in the UMD spin. On a working PSP you will hear the disc start to spin up, then you can hear the laser start to twitch, followed by the laser motor moving the laser down the rails.

2nd is something stuck in the UMD gear, try to clean the gear of arm of dust, plastic, soda, and even hair.

and at the last is the actual laser itself. It will not focus the laser to read the UMD disc.

Hopefully this help, Pls post back should you need additional information...!
