You should check to see if another UMD will work first. Also try them in another PSP. If your sure your PSP is not reading Discs, then and only then, Clean the Laser lens carefully. Using a strong flashlight and magnifying glass, look into the UMD drive with the UMD door open and look for debris like hair or lint, and also dirt and dust. A black switch pokes up on the left inside the UMD drive. Its a little black stick. When you press down on this Black stick, your UMD disc motor should spin for second or two. The UMD laser lens should light up when your press this switch. If any of this does not happen, you need to replace the UMD drive. If you need someone to do this which if you have never done it, you need some knowledge big time.
I can do this for you if you're in the USA for $55 including a New UMD drive, REturn Shipping, and 90 day warranty. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com

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.

Can you run other UMD's and it read them? If so you need to possibly clean the Original UMD.
