Re: How to Fix a PSP UMD drive

See this is a quiet tough job. You will have to open the entire unit and that can result in damage of any part inside the psp device. I think you had never done this before. But don't worry about that. There are certain technicians who can repair that. Instead of purchasing a new one contact to any technician who can repair PlayStation, Mobiles and psp. The replacement for the same is available. You can buy that online on many shopping sites.

Try this simple solution. Hope this can help your. In your PSP enable the UMD auto start option. To do this go to settings and then system settings. Now go on UMD Auto start and set in on. Remove battery from the psp and wait for a moment. Then after sometime insert the UMD disc. Now put the battery back again and switch on the psp device. The disc will run now. If not then the entire UMD unit is damaged. And changing it not a easy task. A skilled technician can do that. You can damage it more.

Re: How to Fix a PSP UMD drive

Changing the UMD drive means disassembling the entire unit. You will have to open the front panel then safely remove the display cable and so on. The UMD drive lies at extreme below. So after disassembling the entire front panel with the display and then removing the back panel the UMD drive will come up. There are tons of videos on the internet for the same. The video guides you to the entire process one by one. But it recommended that you should not do it by your own hand. PSP is common device so you can look for the repair shop also. Try to talk to some computer technician. They can help you.
