PSP will not play UMD after 3.95 update

I have just recently update my PSP from 3.71 to 3.95, and my PSP will not play any UMD. I'm not sure if it was the update, or my little sister knee chucking it onto a hard floor. The UMD option won't even show up under the game menu on the PSP, it will play the saved games and demos on the memory stick though. All of my game saves show up, when i plug it into the computer. I'm not sure if I am going to have to go back to the 3.71 to see if it might fix it. Any help will be appreciated, Thank You...

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.
    "

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.

My psp isnt playing a brand new game. it wont load the umd. the umd is pretty clean. i wait for it to load and it wont.


Below where the UMD game appears on screen try the button below that should say 'Update PSP'. The game could have an update for the PSP and won't play without it. If this doesn't work contact Sony Website Forums and see if anybody there has had the problem.

Why my psp cannot start a game


cannot start umd or cannot start iso file?
if your psp cannot start an iso file,then you must update your cooked firmware to play recent games.see www.pspiso.com for more info about this.
if your psp cannot start an umd,then take it to nearest Sony Service Centre.

good luck.

Update version error (80020321)


What version did you update to? most likely the lens is just dirty a little alcohol and qtip and the lens can be cleaned but be sure to be careful. You can also buy a cleaning disc as well. If you need further assistance let me know, also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,

My PSP shows a message when a umd is inserted: The disc cannot be read. This PSP is less than 9 months old.


Have you tried updating the firmware on your psp? If you havent done that in a while, you may need to because as sony puts out new firmware updates, they update the umds as well, so that you need to have the most recent firmware to play the most recent movies and games. If this doesnt work, you could always try cleaning the cd, and downgrading the firmware, if it lets you, that is...

PSP Error 80020148 when playing FIFA 08 UMD


alright turn off your psp by holding down the power switch for atleast five seconds. when it is turned off hold down the right trigger (the R1 button) then at the same time hold down the power switch button to get to the recovery menu. after that go to configuration then somewhere amongst all of the displayed lines one of them should either say no umd or umd required toward the end of the text. if it says umd required change it to where it says no umd. then go back and go to advance then advance configuration and disable all and this should solve your problem. hope i helped.
