I have a problem with my psp, it will not play or load games. I believe in the issue lies in the little metal lever on the inside of the disc cover. When I put a disc into the psp, normally it should push...


The silver lever you are refering too is most like the lever that trips the "Door closed" switch. I recommend that you take this unit to a local TV Repair or PC Repair Center to see if they will offer to open the unit up and repair/re-align the door mechanics for you.

My sony psp phat umd not read


If it's for all UMD's, you should check something out. Open up the UMD door and leave it open for this test. There's going to be a little lever inside that you need to push down. Looking at the UMD door from behind, screen facing away from you, the little lever is going to be on the top right, you'll see it. Push it down, while the PSP is on and look at where the laser is. You should see a red light coming from it, and it'll be obvious. If you don't see the light, your laser is broken.

Psp always read from umd,making it hang


Hi! I incounter this problem as well even without UMD its still loading and even I disable auto-start UMD still same so I tried reflashing the software but still same problem so I discover the solution before you turn-on your PSP try to open your UMD cover you'll see it will load faster then close again the cover once you see the battery and clock icon... The problem that causing this is the switch inside the UMD possible its stock-up or spoiled already!

My psp umd door wont close properly, what is the problem


maybe something on the inside is moved because ive openened a psp before and the thing in the back of the screen is like a hook that holds the screen shut. or maybe the little thing in your umd door that holds that little closing thing broke off. u can solve this also by hacking your psp and running the games trough the M33 driver. =D

Psp 5.03 downgrade to 3.9 m33-3


First, try to determine your PSP's version. If it is the PSP 3000 (PSP slim with a narrow ring on the UMD Door), you can only play game demos from the PSN and can't be modded as of this date. If you have the PSP 2000 (slim with a wide ring on the UMD door) there is a chance you can't downgrade depending on your motherboard. Pandora's Battery and MMS is required to 'jaibreak' your PSP if you are on Sony official firmware.

PSP Slim making click sounds when UMD is in


it could be a problem with the inside mechanisms of the UMD dock. Better make sure that the insides are clean and free of dirt or small particles.

Psps does load any discs


Hi Tubston1980,

 

What we have here, is a failure to read the UMD.  Troubleshooting 101,  open the UMD door and depress the little black spur sticking up about 1/8" and it is about 3/4" in and to the left.  Once your depress the Black spur, You should see the the little disc motor spin and the laser beam light up.  Do not stare into the laser. This tells you that at least the laser is lighting and the motor is turning,  Now, get a Q-tip and dampen it with Isopropyl rubbing alcohol.  Rub the lens with the dampened q-tip.  Use the dry end of the Q-tip to dry the lens. Look carefully to see if any lint or foriegn obsjects are inside the UMD disc drive.  If you see anything, get it out. Look at the white gear in that back to see if anything is on it. Clean it if necessary, I know its very close quarters and hard to do.

I repair PSP's with this problem that do not get fixed after cleaning. I can replace your UMD drive with a full brand new drive for $47 which includes Return shipping. Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic.com if you need further assitance.
