    I have a similar problem with my 2yr old psp
    It behaves like the start button is pressed continuously very rapidly.
    When i navigates to the web browser it automatically comes out of the browsing mode to the main menu.
    I fear it is a hardware problem( may be the start button is damaged) or a PSP virus
    :(
    Please help

Psp viruses are very rare, and i'm talking about 1 in 1000000000000, yes noticed all the zeroes so yeah no virus. What could have happend is that the start button internally is jammed up. So you might want to try to contact sony on this one unless you want to go ahead and play with it inside. But its your call.

The Lens(the circle inside the disc tray with the purple center) may be broken. In any way did you touch it? If yes , it hay have caused the problem.

My PSP doesn't seem to read the UMD's I put in...no icon shows up under the game symbol on the mian menu...please shed some ligt on this for me. thanks


make sure the UMD is not dirty or scratch or damage in any way. make sure the lens is clean. if your psp is able to read other UMD's then it would mean that the UMD is damaged. if PSP is not able to read other UMD's then you would need to get the lens replaced.

Get it modded it's very cheap $20 - $40. You will still be able to play games just look it up "PSP mod" on craigslist.com and you should be able to find something.

Psp always read from umd,making it hang


Hi! I incounter this problem as well even without UMD its still loading and even I disable auto-start UMD still same so I tried reflashing the software but still same problem so I discover the solution before you turn-on your PSP try to open your UMD cover you'll see it will load faster then close again the cover once you see the battery and clock icon... The problem that causing this is the switch inside the UMD possible its stock-up or spoiled already!

PSP 2003 laser problem


Yes. The lasers are all the same the only difference is the size of the actual UMD enclosure which is only different with the phat (slightly thicker) just make sure its the right UMD tray.
