HELP PSP WONT READ UMDS!!!!

I have a problem with my psp, it stopped reading UMD's one day last week, so I changed the laser for a brand new one from sony, this has'nt helped, the UMD spins up and the laser glows red (i have checked this by pressing the motherboard switch with the UMD door open) one thing i have noticed is the laser does'nt move up or down its rails, i checked this with the old laser unit as well and its the same it doesnt move, it doesnt even try.
Hope some one can help thank you.

Hi i just fixed my sons it wasnt reading umd's every thing else worked so have a look were the threaded rod runs threw the laser, in the centre at the back of the laser there is a little tab with a stamped groove in it make sure the laser is up against the disk spinner when turned off push the tab against the threaded rod hopefully it has seated (you ned a good light plus i used long metal twesers to push it down, easier to see on 2000 model than the fat one but you can manage good luck)

My psp won't read umd


Several things can cause this. The lens might be scratched up, or the umd might be scrached. The laser might not work anymore, or the entire mechanism could be shot. You have to give WAAAY more info than "my psp won't read umds"

Hi .... i got a PSP 3000 . and the UMD stoped working and it dosn't read that i have a UMD inside . whats the problem and what do i do? please help.


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!

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.

You will have to contact the SONY COMPANY and tell them that your UMD system doesn`t work. The net dday you will have to mail them your psp and if your guarantee is not expired they fix it for free and they should refund your shipping cost.
