I think the lens might have died permanantely, or maybe just it's temporary. I've also had the same problem, and one time I turned it on, it started working again. Wait about a day and see if it still happens.

Error 80010087

Check the firmware of your PSP. Some games may not work if the latest firmware is not installed.

You usually get this message if the UMD has errors reading or the UMD is not present or was ejected in the middle of playing a game. You should try testing your PSP with other disks, if it doesn't have the same problem with other disks then your UMD is most likely scratched or damaged.

If you are using a modded PSP then you will get this error if you load a game from the memory stick without having a disk inserted in the drive. Or if the game that you are trying to load requires a higher firmware version. You will need to install a higher modded firmware to fix the error if that is your case.

Hope this helps.

Wont play games or films, comes on but when you put a film or game in just keeps spinning

check if your disk drive has broke or the games/videos are scratched, that will be the only problem.

I can't get sound on Lego Batman for Playstation 3. Everything else works fine.

Sup, Your problem might be this, theres a scratch on the disk that memorizes the sound. I had a scratch on a game and it froze the game when I pressed play story.

My psp won't read the disk

The UMD could be scratched. either youve played it a lot or its a malfunctioning disk. try to dust it off and see if that works then.

the disk could very well be scratched due to overplaying. If you look at the bottom of it (where the disk is read, i mean) and it has a lot of scratches, that could be the problem, so you might have to get a new disk.
But, you should try wiping it off and trying it agian.

have you tried various disks? certan disks may either be scratched or dusty so you coul take a can of compressed air and ust out both some umd's and the umd tray of the psp. also, if you're usuing a custom firmware, you may find it will work once you revert to an official firmware

My psp will not read disks

Put a umd inside wait a sec or two open and check if there is a red light, den the lens is fine its most likely that your cd has been scratched. Try using dev-hook or a custom firmware to read games from memcard
