Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Slim (PSP-2000) Console

1 Answer

Buttons work in XMB, but not in game after submersion

Okay so the short version of my accident is that I was showering when my girlfriend came into the bathroom. She wasn't paying attention to my psp on the sink and she hit it. . . and into the toilet it went. . . I immediately reached in and grabbed it. The battery cover is missing so at least the battery came out upon impact. So, as soon as I was able to I took the PSP apart and dried out the various parts. . . It comes on and everything works great in the XMB, but as soon as I load a game or try to use the internet it will not respond to any button presses except the bottom row of keys from the "home bar" I'll call it that. . . So I am totally at a loss as to why everything works normally in XMB, but not in game. . . Oh and when I try to enter text into the internet it will continually press the right key making it impossible to input anything. . . If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate the help. I am running custom 5.00 m33-3 on my psp

Dear Babygrll,

It's probably because you shorted out the electronics in your cell phone. If you are lucky, you can turn it off, take out the batteryand let it dry out over night and turn it on tomorrow and hope it's not fried. Unless you have extra insurance protection on the phone, you'll be buying a replacement because water damage is not covered under normal warranties. Next time, don't text and shower...

My rain shower is blocked , only 20% of the holes are working, what do I do, It is two years old and slowly the holes are not working

Your shower head is getting clogged with calicum or lime and will continue to plug up worse until you clean it.
Remove the Shower head from the Shower pipe and submerse it in a bucket mixed with 50% Water and 50% CLR. Let it say submersed for about an hour, then rinse it completly under fresh running water to wash away the CLR and the dissolved calicum/lime.
CLR can be bought at numerous places such as Lowes,Home Depot, and numerous other places.
