PSP won't read my UMD

    One day I went to play a new game on my PSP and it wouldn't play. My old games don't play either. The PSP has never been abused. When I put the UMD in I hear the PSP trying to read the UMD (buzzing lazer sound) then some knocking (that you can feel when holding the PSP). It goes through this cycle again and again. When I open the UMD slot I can see the lazer shooting a red light.

    Can someone please help me fix this problem. My warranty is done and I will be traveling soon (the PSP is my savior on trips).

    I have read other forums and it does seem like the lazer is broken. I would like to figure out if it is broken before I replace it. By the way, I barely use my PSP, I don't know how anything on the PSP could break. I have a hard time believing the PSP broke by sitting on a shelf.

    Hey, had the same problem here. I sent a letter to the BBB complaining about my broken psp. In like 4 weeks I got a letter form sony telling me to call them. I called the guy today and he said he would replace my psp. It will not get replaced if you opened it up. If you dont get a letter from sony, then try to open it up. Just try it out though. Its a problem in the main cpu. It would have to be replaced or repaired.

    Nope. Didn't work.

    Any other ideas?

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    I have a little more interesting problem. I bought a psp off ebay about 6 months ago. When it came it read discs for about an hour before it quit reading discs altogether. Retiring it for a while i bought a new psp and played it for a while, until recently when I accidentally bricked the new psp. So what I did is took the motherboard out of the one psp and placed it in the other. So now in theory I have a fully working psp. When I turned on the psp it worked great for about an hour then it died again and wont read the discs. any help would be appreciated. thx

    this happened to me with ratchet and clank and socom. What I did was take the umd casing off and clean the disk. It worked perfectly after that, remember to open the casing carefully or else you will have to hold the casing together when you put it in.
