Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Slim (PSP-2000) Console
Ello. My PSP won't read UMDs. The loading icon appears at the bottom right corner when a UMD is in but the UMD icon does not appear. I checked inside the drive, tested it and found out that the laser and middle motor works fine. But it still won't read UMDs. It's a PSP-2000. Thanks in advance for those trying to help.
Most likely the laser is weak. It has been awhile since I have changed a laser in a psp. But first off you should clean the laser with a q-tip and isopropyl alcohol and dry it with the other end of the q-tip. It doesn't take much for them to not be able to read a disc. If it still doesn't work you will need to replace the laser if you aren't that great at working on electronics or very small things you need to find someone to do it for you.
Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/benjamin_494963e790f97efb

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.

SOURCE: HELP PSP WONT READ UMDS!!!!
hi i just fixed my sons it wasnt reading umd's every thing else worked so have a look were the threaded rod runs threw the laser, in the centre at the back of the laser there is a little tab with a stamped groove in it make sure the laser is up against the disk spinner when turned off push the tab against the threaded rod hopefully it has seated (you ned a good light plus i used long metal twesers to push it down, easier to see on 2000 model than the fat one but you can manage good luck)
