Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

Keeps turning off during play

Hi-my son's PSP keeps turning off during use. It will go back on but continues to turn off after a period of time. Any ideas what the problem could be and how to fix it? I sure wish I bought the extended warranty but could hardly afford the thing as it is!
Thanks
Sue

    one day i was playing my psp and it just turned off but the green light started flashing and didnt want to turn of so i had no choice but to take out the battery..so i did so and when i turned it back on to see whats going on it was showing all the signs of being brick.so i left it alone for one day to see what i could do for like a day..and when i turned it back on to see..it was doing the same thing it didnt turn on what so ever,the green light..nothing!! so i took out the battery for like 2 days and when i put it back on it was working perfectly for like an hour and then just shuts off(the battery is fully charged)it still charges but doesnt turn on.every time i take out the battery and put it back in after like 30 minutes it turns on perfecly but gives me a certain amount of time to play and then just shuts off

Can you tell me if this only happens when a game is in the UMD drive or does this happen regardless.

Hi, it is very possible that your psp is not recognizing your memory stick(had this happen a few times)just simply try plugging it back in. p.s if this does not work please go to my profile and email me.

Not reading umd


your son probably dropped his PSP at the time and the UMD drive broke or if your son says he didnt drop it you can get a cutip and softly clean your UMD reader the little bubble sorta in your PSP be carful while doing that

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 freezes up during certain games


bet you are playing on a slim, turn of the umd cache in system settings then the problem stops perhaps the game (driver 76) doesnt support the umd cache system using the extra ram in the psp slim
well it worked for me anyway

PSP won't power on


When you play a new game for the first time, the psp checks for the firmware version of your psp. If a newer version is available, the disc will require you to update your psp. If you do not update the game cannot be played. If you update, you MUST charge the battery 1st. Then, you must have the charge plugged in and allow the update to run uninterrupted. If you remove the game or unplug the charger during the update the bios chip will be ruined and you now have little more than a "brick".
When this happens, the unit completely locks up and has to be replaced. Basically, it corrupts the operating system and there is no ability to restore default settings as a back-up.
