Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

My psp doesnt read UMDs properly

When I put in a game. Everything works as usual for some time but soon it makes a rather loud noise that sounds like scraping. This either slows the loading or stops it completly... Is there a free or cheap way to fix it or a site that might help?

I started to have this problem with the games that I play all the time. What I noticed is that the game starts to sink into the case. I got mine to play by first, pushing on the reading side of the disk. Later, I had to take the plastic front piece off that has the UMD label. You have to be careful because the actual UMD disk can come out after that. You also have to be careful because you don't want to crack the whit case that holds the UMD. I hope that this helps.

MY PSP WONT LOAD UMDS I GET NO SOUNDS OF TICKING

Well, if your PSP is still under warranty, then you can bring it to SONY, repairs FREE of charge!
If not, bring your PSP to repairs... SONY, or other smaller electronic repair companys/shops which are usually cheaper!

For the ticking sound...
- make sure your volume is up!
- make sure that..... Settings > Sound Settings > Key Tone.... is on!

My psp makes a loud whirring noise

Hmmm... well i think its because its thea game or something or that you need to clean the PSP because when you open the UMD drive dust could fly in there or the UMDs might have dust inside and attract more dust but your able to play games right?

if you have already tried to read different umds and it still does not work.....i would suggest you remove the battery.....completely restart the unit....if at that time it still does not read umds....u either have a dirty lens or your unit is possibly faulty......you could attempt to clean with Q-tip and alcohol and retry
