My sony psp3 has updated from 5.60 to my games wont work anymore and gone... need to download 6.60 version software also to work all stuff in my psp.. anybody can help me to solve my problem?...

If the games are on UMD's you might want to e-mail Sony about that. For the most part, older games will have issues starting, and if they are ISO's I am not sure. You might have to wipe the memory card and try again. Good luck.

Have version 6.35 on memory stick via network update but it wont seem to work when i go to install it it goes to a screen showing psp and wont go any further please help

Okay I'm not exactly sure how your screen looks but it might be the following:
1. Your computer/PSP didn't download the update correctly.
2. Your memory stick might be malfunctioning.

If its (1) then try:
- re-downloading it through the PSP
- re-downloading it on your computer and then putting on the memory stick again.

If it might be (2) then try:
- Another memory card and the above

- Follow this website
- Turn of the PSP completely before trying.
- Have the PSP charging at the time of update.

Cheers :)

If that doesn't work can you somehow upload/take a picture of the screen it shows?

My psp wont turn on

Try scraping off any excess "gunk" between the battery and the terminal. if theres not any, good. Try to find a friend who has another PSP and plug in his battery, if this works, follow solution 2. If not, read solution 1.

Solution 1: If your PSP was being updated and turned off, this is a BAD THING. From personal experience, you have fried your PSP. Ive attempted to fix this problem and the only way to do so is if its still under warranty.

Solution 2: Your Charger or Battery is broken. Please attempt to drain your friends battery, then use your charger to attempt and recharge. if it does, the battery is dead. if it doesnt, you need a new charger.

Please message me with feedback, thanks

you may have updated your psp to a original firmware not a custom firmware. my advice would be to if you have a pandoras battery to use the recovery menu (turn your psp off completely and then turn it on holding the L trigger) to downgrade back to custom firmware.

hi there
you will need to buy a pandora battery and memory stick because turning the psp half way through a update it will brick the psp meaning that nothing happens so once got the pandora place mem stick into psp and hold L trigger then put battery into psp and the orange light will flash then release the L trigger then in the menu you will be able to put it back to 1.50 firmware

hope to of been of help
