Ok i Just Purchased a God Of War PSP today lucky for me it was the last one but it was used.Now it Works and i mean Completly works nothings wrong with it However when i Enter Old UMD Disc it Doesnt read it or i get a Error the Game could not be Read or some 88025 Error something like that.However when i enter Games like Disgaea 2,Tag Force 4 and Prinny it reads it However it wont Read my Disgaea 1,Tag Force 1 and 2,Ys and my Sonic Rivals and its not my Game Disc cause it Reads it fine on my PSP 1000 so what i want to know is it the Lens or is it the Motherboard making these Problems and can it be Repaired.


EDIT:Btw i plan on Hacking it to GEN-D3 is it Possible?

Yeah, the God of War is hackable. As to your UMD issue, it's a stretch, but I'd guess the laser is flawed. If you have a Play N Trade in the area look into one of those.

Just a quick google search the lens is about $30 just for the part, so that's really up to you if it's worth $50 for the labor. If he knows what he's doing and you couldn't do it on your own then sure. Personally I would only charge somebody $20 since it's doesn't take too long.

That is a little concerning because it sounds very false, and I would expect him to back up this claim that Sony manufactured the bundled PSP any differently than another. Fifty dollars may or may not be worth his time to repair one, but lying about the cost is something else entirely.

Well hes Know really good for PSP Repair.But anyways he said its Because the PSP Model i have that it cost a bit more than other PSP 2000.

What a load of cack...unless he's allergic to red plastic...

And personally i think you'd be better off selling that on ebay and buying yourself a guaranteed 100% hacked slim.

So you're saying that the UMD reading lens are not functioning properly? Right? Well, forget about that, once you hack your PSP, you won't need that UMD tray (atleast I never use it...did before, when I got GoW UMD game with the PSP -yes, I too have the same GoW limited PSP-)

Don't sell this GoW PSP, no...this edition in my opinion, is the bomb xD!

P.S. The game could not be started error means the current firmware doesn't support it, or some option prob, if other UMD games work, it means that the LENS are fine

Well he fixed it...Anyways it was the Lens the UMDs work and i have a lot of UMD disc so its a Waste to leave them without playing it.Had to Pay $80 but at least it works.
