    Are you trying to run UMD games or ISOs loaded from a memory stick. be more specific.

    sounds to me like it was a bad update. i have done some research and it seems 2.60 updates had this problem sometimes. but it should have been fixed when you updated to 3.03. i think the umd drive is bad myself. the error code says it is a unsupported prx or it is unable to read the data.psar. so the umd drive might be bad.

    I thought that may have been the problem but thought stick with it,now the million dollar question,can it be fixed simply?

    if it can be done, i havent heard much about it. you can probably replace the laser but that is some hard work. it is your choice man. you can use it as a paperweight, trash it, or sell it, or repair it (maybe).
