Hi Jleew,

 

You should check to see if another UMD will work first.  Also try them in another PSP.  If your sure your PSP is not reading Discs, then and only then, Clean the Laser lens carefully.  Using a strong flashlight and magnifying glass, look into the UMD drive with the UMD door open and look for debris like hair or lint, and also dirt and dust.  A black switch pokes up on the left inside the UMD drive.  Its a little black stick.  When you press down on this Black stick, your UMD disc motor should spin for  second or two.  The UMD laser lens should light up when your press this switch.  If any of this does not happen, you need to replace the UMD drive. If you need someone to do this which if you have never done it, you need some knowledge big time.

I can do this for you if you're in the USA for $55 including a New UMD drive, REturn Shipping, and 90 day warranty. Contact [email protected]

Psp wont read any disk or play any video on any websites

Did you happen to play a "pirated" copy lately? PSP has new safeguards that literally shut down your unit if suspected pirated software/codes/hardware are used... if not, try a hard-reset (refer to owners manual) and see if that solves the problem!

Hope that helps!

Disks wont read

First try cleaning the lens. Mine got dust on it, and it stopped reading UMDs.

A little rubbing alcohol and a q tip and it might work.

use 70% alcohol to clean the lens. Use that stick that you clean your ears with. And use not to mush alcohol. Let the lens dry for 10 minutes and try to play a UMD disk again.

If that doesn't work and still under warranty just send it in and they'll fix it for you :) Good luck!

Psp making funny buzz noise and not reading umd disks.

Try a different UMD, it might be scratched. If not, take a soft cloth, and clean the lens. Look on google to see where the lens are located.
