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.

My son psp beep when you put a game in and the umd does not come up can you help please


f you are experiencing issues when using a Universal Media Disc (UMD™) on the PSP system, try these troubleshooting options:

  • Issues with PlayStation®Store content Click here for help with content purchased from the PlayStation Store.
  • Restore Default Settings Restore Default settings will default the PSP system to its original settings. A setting change may be the reason the PSP system is having difficulties. Click here to learn how to restore default settings on the PSPgo / PSP system.
  • Confirm UMD is properly inserted

    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.

  • Try playing the UMD on a different PSP system If possible, try playing the UMD on a different PSP system. If the disc still does not function properly, it might need to be replaced. If the disc does function properly, the PSP system may need service, see PSP Service for details.
  • Try playing a different UMD on the PSP system If possible, try playing a different UMD on the PSP system. If another UMD plays, the original UMD may be the problem. If none of the UMD's play, the problem may be isolated to the PSP system.
  • Check for moisture Do not let the PSP system or any PSP® accessories come in contact with liquid. Also check for moisture condensation in the PSP system. If moisture condensation occurs, remove the disc from the PSP and do not use the PSP until the condensation has evaporated, which can take an hour or two. In general, if any part of the PSP gets wet, discontinue use until it is completely dry.
  • Check the regional code Check the regional code on the UMD™ Video. The only regional codes that the North American PSP® is tested to work properly with are "ALL" and "1.
    "
Tried these steps and still need help?

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't read disc


the umd drive must be dying. You can replace the und drive.

One trick you can try is to put a little water on a cotton swab and clean the the laser.It just inside the psp where you put the umd drive. also try to move the laser all the way to the inside

Will not read game and makes noises


sounds like the umd drive went bad. This is not good at all.
Unless you are good at taking electronics apart, putting it back together and finding another umd drive somewhere to replace the bad one, i recommend getting another psp.

However, you can also hack your psp, but ill let you look that up. Not a difficult process, but gotta have the right psp and a big memory stick.

Psp fault code


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.  Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic.com.   I run the website www.playstationclinic.com

My psp doesnt read UMDs properly


I started to have this problem with the games that I play all the time. What I noticed is that the game starts to sink into the case. I got mine to play by first, pushing on the reading side of the disk. Later, I had to take the plastic front piece off that has the UMD label. You have to be careful because the actual UMD disk can come out after that. You also have to be careful because you don't want to crack the whit case that holds the UMD. I hope that this helps.
