when you say scanner do you mean laser that reads the umd?
you could replace the laser from one off ebay but the thing with replacing lasers is that adjusting the laser so it reads the disk it tricky
here is a shop that repairs lasers in psps http://www.ipaqrepair.co.uk/ipaqpart1418.html
or if you want to do it your self http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sony-PSP-2000-Slim-Original-UMD-Laser-Lens-Repair-Parts_W0QQitemZ290386195846QQcategoryZ127746QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp4340.m263QQ_trkparmsZalgo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BIEW%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D11%26ps%3D63
also you say it is 1 year old from brand new? bought from the shops call sony as it may just be under warenty
Actually make sure you got a Brand new lens.On e bay or different place like that a lot people are selling lens for Brand New but they are not.
Have the antistatic point on the lens most of the time it doesn`t mean is new.I know a lot of laser are faulty because repaired or refurbished and can be one(of the most common) problem.
If you have any chance send back that laser for replacement.
Tweeeking the laser also is not a easy step.You need to know the exact value in Ohm about the laser and use a Multimeter to find out when the laser is in range.Tweeking to much will increase voltage on the laser and will burn it.
Try a different laser because motherboard error for only 1 format is not a common issue
Your Laser lens is dirty. You need to get some foam type ear swabs, not cotton, like Q-tip. You should be abkle to find these at a local drug store. Dampen the swab in something like Windex and swab the lens of the laser. Use the opposite end of the swab which should be dry to polish the lens delicately. This may get you back working again. If not your laser has much more severe problems, and probably needs to be replaced. In this case, click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then on the next screen select "Video Game Consoles" Pick a repair shop to service your PSP. If you think you want to do it yourself, be aware it is very easy to damage the PSP beyond reasonable repair.
the games are fine it is the system. it needs a cleaning. if it trys to read it it needs to be cleaned. if it trys to read it and it says error/ cannot read then the laser needs to be adjusted. if it just does not do anything, you need your laser replaced. send it in to a game system repair center.
