My son's psp (the older fat version) has stopped reading discs
My sons psp (the older fat version) has stopped working. When a disc is put in, I can hear it spinning but it just doesn't manage to read any disc anymore. It just eventually says that 'The disc could not be read'. We have tried lots of discs and it is just the same. It would be great if you could help. Many thanks

you can find a used fat modle on crages list for around 40 bucks, and used fat ones at a place like game stops 70-90. one option i would try is a little rubbing alcohol on one side of a Qtip, wipe the lazer eye very gently with the wet side then dry it with the other end of the Qtip, let sit for about 10 mins and giver a go. (DO THIS AT OWN RISK) =D if your very gentle you wount mess it up, the eye is glass and some times it just gets dusty. hope it helps
Well the problem might be that your son hasn't updated the PSP to it's latest software version. That or the game disc(s) is probably just dirty. If updating doesn't work then you should rather just call SONY. They will either help you with your problem or tell you you have to ship it to there company to fix and they will charge you a fee. But shipping the PSP is free.
Here's a page on the official Nintendo site that might help. ----
