Question about Sony PlayStation Portable Slim Black Console

1 Answer

My son put a umd in backwards and now his PSP will not play. He has a 3001, when he tried to close the door, something broke and some small black plastic parts fell out - a couple - now it wont play. Any idea what he broke and if we can order replacement parts so I don't have to pay $89.00 to fix it?

I believe the closing button is the problem. There is a small pin that when you close the backside of the psp, it will push the this pin to run the UMD game. If this is torn apart. You no longer play the UMD game. Despite that you can play still play games by putting PSP software games. But you need a chicken software and a gen-c programs to be able to convert it to 6.31 version. I have these programs and games. I can send you for free. here is my email: reguver@yahoo.com

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.

When we turn it on, we can't get a game to start. Is there a way to reset it and start fresh?


Can you clearly tell me the problem? Did you do these steps?
Switch on PSP>insert UMD>wait for auto start
(I am guessing that your PSP detects a game once it is inserted)

In addition, what series of PSP do you own? (it has to be a PSP1000, 2000 or 3000- if you are in the US, the serial will be 1001, 2001 or 3001)
If the UMD is not detected at all, the UMD sensor maybe broken.
In a PSP1000, there is a small sensor (which looks like a grey 'tooth' that sticks out from the motherboard when you open the UMD door and peer in) and if this is broken, a UMD will not work. This sensor signals to the motherboard that there is a UMD inside. On 2000 and 3000 PSPs, there are two sensors; one grey 'tooth' and another that is located near the UMD door. This signals the motherboard that the UMD door is closed. If one of these sensors are broken, a UMD will not work.
I hope this helps you out, please post back and let us know!

Not reading disk psp 3001 when i put the disk in there is no response! it does nothin


This could be one of two issues.

1. A bad laser. When you put a game in, it attempts to read, and you get a read error, chances are the laser is bad. Unfortunately, this doesn't sound to be the issue here.

2. The PSP 2001 and PSP 3001 have two sensors on the motherboard. One sensor lets the PSP know that a UMD is inside. The other sensor lets it know that the door is closed. Sounds like one of these sensors is broken. The following website sells the sensors, or can resolder them onto the motherboard for you for $44:

PSP (Piano Black): have psp 3001 wont load games...


You can only play UMD games on PSP 300X.
You can't load downloaded iso/cso games on it.
Unless you hack it and use custom firmware.

My son's psp (the older fat version) has stopped reading discs


Not sure is this actual PSP or play station. If it is Play station It is very possible that there is problem with laser that reads disks. Try to by PSP cleaner and run it and this might fix the issue.

My psp umd door wont close properly, what is the problem


maybe something on the inside is moved because ive openened a psp before and the thing in the back of the screen is like a hook that holds the screen shut. or maybe the little thing in your umd door that holds that little closing thing broke off. u can solve this also by hacking your psp and running the games trough the M33 driver. =D
