Cant play umd games


90% of the time UMD's will not play because laser has gone bad

Check UMD's for scratches
You can try to clean laser (cue tip rubbing alcohol) but usually does not work

If comfortable replace laser (drive doors break real easy)
If not seek repair tech help.

I accidently dropped my psp slim and now it wont read UMD's


Get it modded it's very cheap $20 - $40. You will still be able to play games just look it up "PSP mod" on craigslist.com and you should be able to find something.

Psp is not reading my umds. movies, games...etc. any umd


if you have already tried to read different umds and it still does not work.....i would suggest you remove the battery.....completely restart the unit....if at that time it still does not read umds....u either have a dirty lens or your unit is possibly faulty......you could attempt to clean with Q-tip and alcohol and retry

Hi Glenpark, Eithr the UMD or UMD laser is dirty.  If it will play other UMD's the UMD is dirty.  I think Gamestop has a device that helps broken and dirty UMD's.  If it will not play any UMD, then you have a problem with your UMD laser.  You can try to clean your laser lens.  Use a Q-tip.  Dampen, not soak,  a Q-tip with a window cleaner. NOT Alcohol. Swab the lens thoroughly with the cleaner, then use the dry Q-tip to dry and polish the laser. Try hard to not leave any lint.

If you UMD still does not function, you need to send it back to SONY. Contact them at 1-800-345-7669.  If you cant get them to fix it Contact The Playstation Clnic at Repairtech@Playstationclinic.com

Hi Haste,

 

If your in the USA, I suggest for the best thing to do is Call Sony Support. You can call them, at 1 800 345 7669, its real easy.

 

You may try removing the battery for about 3 minutes, then booting it back up. Are you running a certain UMD when this happens?
