All I did was open the disc touch the button that makes it glow red on the inside. I saw that there is an area that moves and that it actually reads discs. So i moved it to the right and everything was back to normal!

Ita probabaly the umd door switch. Open the umd door look in the upper left corner there is a switch very small switch the tip maybe broken off if it is it wont play umd's. you cn either fix it or put custon firmware on it and play them from you memory card.

Posted on Dec 28, 2009

  • Dean Dishman Jan 16, 2010

    fuc2mypsp you have no idea what your talking about!You dont have to have a game in the UMD drive to play games off the memory stick and you dont downgrade the firmware you upgrade to Custom firmware then you download ISO's to the ISO folder on your memory stick and play them!! So you need to get more info before you shoot off your mouth about things you know nothing about!!!

Access the menu ( hold right shoulder button and power up ) then turn umd off and play iso's off your mem stick with no umd, if you go to gen d2 cfw don't think you need a umd either.

There may be a physical issue with your UMD drive. If you want to fix it yourself, You can get the part at psp Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at psp Repair Guide.

I've been having the same problem as you.
I dropped my psp in my house and then it stopped reading umds and then the next morning, it was working again. Then, like three days later, it stopped reading discs and it makes that clicking noise. I'm not sure what to do, i know my warranty won't work since i got it when the psp first came out, and i'm not sure how expensive it would be for a repair. I'm also not trying to pay 75$ to get my psp fixed and then it's just something simple, or it works for a couple days and then breaks again, what should i do?

Unplug it for ten minutes to reset itself. If that doesn't work make sure the contacts are clean. Use rubbing alcohol and a chamois.

Posted on Mar 09, 2015

Well, your options are send it to sony and have it repaired or have it repaired locally. Being that the psp isn't shock resistant you most likely knocked something out of place, probably the motor. Whick would explain the clicking. Have it fixed or downgraded it so your able to play games directly off your memorystick.

My umd is not working how can i fix this


The problem is that when your brother dropped it ,, he must have broken something in the reader , where now the reader cant be able to read the UMD disks an easy solution is to make there is no dust in the UMD reading place or trapped in the UMD, second of all if the reader is really broken you can go to the nearest psp fix shop he will tell you the problem and whether you wanna fix it or not... finally, the most preferred way is by giving up on UMD and start using psp isos downloaded from the internet for free,, all you need is a memory stick preferred 2gb or higher... and a CFW which u can find tutorials all over youtube finally you just play the games off of your psp memory stick for free... hope it helps ^^

Psp not saving or loading


Hi Spazza2,

Did yout try using the same UMD game your brother was using and see if the game format has anything to do with it?  Since you upgraded, the UMD game may be old, and might not work with Version 3.71. It sounds like your PSP is working just  fine other than that.
