You most likely have internal damage to the system from the fall. You may have broken the internal fan that cools the system during gameplay and that is why it is shutting off minutes after use. I recommend calling Sony to see if you are still under a warranty. It may be cheaper to have it replaced than to have it fixed.

I hope I was able to fixya problem and Happy Gaming!

I charged my psp for atleast 5 hours.....but charge ended within 1 hour......what to do??


I'm just restating what you said here first...

You plugged in your psp for 5 hours.
You took it out.
You played it for 1 hour before it turned off...

If this is true, it seems that your battery just can't hold a charge. One solution would be to just buy a replacement battery, but you could try this...

Drain your psp completely. This means keeping it on until it turns off, then turn it on again, leave until off and so on. Just keep turning it on until it stays on for less than a minute.
Charge your battery overnight.

Hope this helps!!!

No sounds when i play psp games


1) Try plugging in and out the headphone jack with headphones and see if the speakers turn on
2) Make sure the volume button + is pushed until you reach max volume.
3) You may have a broken speaker from dropping the PSP which has occurred to me before.

Psp turned off while playing game and I lost all saved data.


Hey there, may have received a "short" in your PSP. What I would reccomend firstly is this...Go ahead and take the battery out of your PSP and then reseat it. Unfortunately, if your PSP is turning on right now, but you have no saved data, the memory stick may have been wiped...unless of course you have other data and just not the data of the game your playing. Data is stored in the onboard memory of the PSP and unfortunately when the game recieves a shock like you've said it lets go of the memory, much like someone pushing you in the hallway and you lose your books. I hope this gave you ideas, and/or solved your problem.

Psp was dropped and will not turn on unless charger is plugged in the wall.


It sounds like a power supply problem. either your battery or the internal power source is defected do to the drop.. or maybe u didnt charge your battery. On one of my psps i have to wiggle around the ac adaptor to make sure its charging sometimes

If this doesnt resolve your problem you may have to call psp customer service at 800-345-7669. This is a toll free number.

Happy Gaming!

My psp keeps turning off


this happened to me and i think it happens when you play your psp while its charging too much, i got littlebigplanet and i love the game too much. ive been playing it 24/7 (not really) but ever since i started playing it while it was charging, it would do this.

Sony psp problem


Remove the battery for 15 minutes, connect the AC Adapter and install the battery again.
It that doesn't work, remove the battery again, wait 15 minutes, install it and plug the AC Adapter.
It's a weird problem but in my PSP i get around that way.

Psp lags / delayed action


Are you running with custom firmware like M33 or HX?

If so, you can switch your psp off (not stand by), and hold R trigger when you switch it on, it should bring you to the recovery menu, where you can setup your XMB cpu speed and Game cpu speed, both set to default will be fine.

Psp freezes about 5 minutes into game play then shuts off


sounds unfixable, if you wait about a month i heard they are making a slimmer PSP and the old PSP price will go down :)
