Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
Please help me I have had my psp for around two years and last night I shut off my psp (I did not put it into sleep mode). When I turned it back on all I saw was the wavy backround and no icons, (music,games,videos,internet,settings) none. I discovered that if I pop the disk out my backround loads, but when I put the UMD back in I had the little wavy circle in the bottom right corner. After about 5 minutes it said "DISK COULD NOT BE READ". This is the same message I get for all my disk. I tried them in my friends psp and they worked fine, so I know it is the system. I have read many blogs and tried many solutions like pulling the battery for a while, reseting all the settings, blowing on the laser, and I have heard that you can take rubbing alcohol or Windex and put it on a q-tip or a lense wipe and wipe it over the laser. I have yet to try the last suggestion. I need your help. I have noticed that when I open the disk case and pull out the disk there is a little black switch inside of the disk case. I pushed it and the laser went red and went up and the disk revolver started to spin. There was one problem the laser kept moving up and down. I am not sure if this is normal. I have called a friend to see if his does the same thing but he has not responded. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!
When a psp is starting to read a disk, it takes up 333 mhz of processing power to to read it. thas why u dont see anything when u come from off or sleep into on w/ games inside of teh drive. its normal. all psp's do that. now ur laser is bad get another drive or use rubbing alcohol on a qtip and clean it,
plz rate thnx
