Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
Ive had my psp for a while now, everything was okay but then all of a sudden it wasnt reading the um when i put one in, it would take a few tries and then wrk but in the middle of the game the game would freeze. my brother has been borrowing the psp once while but he says he didnt notice the problem. if anyone can help me i would appreciate it. thnx
If you can still hear it trying to work its most likely a problem with the laser which cost about $40 and probably $25 to $30 for labor. If it doesnt try to work at all then you will have to get a new UMD from $80 to $100 plus cost of labor. Unless you have experience i would suggest that you have a proffesional fix it, because you have to take the whole thing apart to change it and taking it apart is the easy part, putting it back together is the hard part.

Tips for a great answer:
f you are experiencing issues when using a Universal Media Disc (UMD™) on the PSP system, try these troubleshooting options:
Make sure the UMD is properly inserted with the label facing the back of the PSP system. Try removing the UMD and reinserting it.
Please note, it is normal for the PSP system to make noises while it is reading from a UMD.
For PSP-1001, slide the latch to open the UMD door. For the PSP-2001 and PSP-3001, simply lift the door open.
If you have tried the troubleshooting information above, but continue to experience problems, please contact our Consumer Services department to have your PSP system serviced.

Can you run other UMD's and it read them? If so you need to possibly clean the Original UMD. If your not able to read any UmDs, or it will see the UMD and not load it up and run the UMD, you will need a new UMD drive. I can replace your UMD drive for $45 including return shipping.
