Two options Repair or Replace
If repairing goto
www.us.playstation.com to find a repair center.

Replacing buy a new PSP from Best Buy, Circuit City or some place that offers a warrenty and get the warrenty.

I did this with my sons DS and @ 19 months his screen went out and Best Buy replaced it with a new system.

The disk is not readable


Try different games and see if the psp will play any of them. If it doesn't then take a can of air and gently blow some air into the slot where the games go. This will remove any dust or dirt that might be on the laser.

If the psp is playing some games but not others then the laser is going weak.

Either way if the PSP is not playing games or only recognizes some, then the laser needs to be replaced.

Psp not playing game


Usually the problem is with the umd laser.

You can try to clean the lens with a dry q-tip, but in general when psp's have this problem the laser needs to be changed.

PSP unable to read UMD discs


You will probably need a laser replacement. Check your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. If not you will have to find a laser online and attempt to replace it yourself. It's fairly simple.

The disc isn't spinning so the game isn't playing


Hello,

try different games or playing the game with the PSP in diferent positions, ex upside down, sideways...
and let me know if it works. If it does something is lose inside, if it does not the laser reader or LCD casing must be replaced.

Psp


This can by caused by one or more of the following conditions:

1- The device was dropped and the sensitive laser assembly broke. Get a new PSP.

2- The laser assembly is dirty. Clean it gently with a cotton swab and some isopropyl.

3- The games are dirty. Gently spin them and wipe with a soft cloth.

Playing neopets on psp


Hi Shay877,

Well I would not use that UMD no more.
The UMD could have jarred the Laser and keeping it from moving. Sometimes you can clear this by forcing the laser to move some. You will hear it click a few times. Once you click it a few times one way or another. Try a UMD, Not the UMD that broke it, to see if that fixed

Psp-lazer ain't reading the games


This link should help.

  • Make sure the UMD is properly inserted with the label facing the back of the PSP system. Try removing the UMD and reinserting it.
  • Try playing the UMD on a different PSP system. If the UMD plays, the original PSP system may be the problem. If the UMD does not play, the problem may be isolated to the UMD itself.
  • 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.
  • Make sure the exposed UMD surface and plastic casing is not damaged[2]. Do not use if plastic casing is cracked, collapsed, or if foreign materials have entered inside the UMD enclosure.
