Hey there i bright a psp and its not reading the games wat can cause that???
Switch on on your PSP and remove the UMD that might be inside
When you open up the UMD door and look down inside you will see the Laser assembly.
If you look to the left there is a black tab that sticks up, this tells the PSP that there is a UMD in the drive.
If you press this down with a small probe, you should see the disc motor spin and the laser light up red (do not stare directly at the laser)
Inspect to see If the Motor is spinning or not.is it moving slightly?
Take the parts out and see if there is another problem also.
If the laser is not lighting up then it could be the laser,check the cables to the PSP and see if there is a bad connection.
If both are running well then put a disc in and get your ear up close so you can hear what is going on in there.
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.
Can you hear the disc spin up? If not I would take the disc out again and press the switch with your probe again. if the disc motor is spinning again, look around to see if the metal housing is obstructing the disc when you put it in.. there could be too much pressure for the disc to spin freely
Can you hear the Laser focus? This might be hard to hear it will sound like a little tick. If you cant hear it tick I would move on and inspect this internally later.
Can you hear the Laser move down the rail? This will be a smooth sound of the gears, it should not be a really clicky sound.
If you can't hear it move down the track OR it is very clicky do the fpllowing;
You should open the UMD door and carefully manually move the laser to the right side of the assembly.
Use a sharp THIN probe to manually move the WHITE gear under the metal housing.
try and scrape the gears themselves to make sure there is no gunk or debris in the gear..
After this try and see if it is reading UMD again.
If none of this is working, it is time to open your PSP unit
If you are able to find out what's wrong from the troubleshooting steps above you can replace the problem by
Replacing the UMD, Assembly,Replacing UMD Disc Motor,Replacing UMD Laser Motor or by Replacing PSP Motherboard
