    not sure my son bought it from a friend

    may i know what type of psp you having? is it fat psp or slim psp?

    if your using slim you need a custom firmware but if your using fat you need kernel firmware.

    i think you already know how to update your psp but the problem is its not updating.

    and i think its the type of firmware your your trying to update it, try to find another firmware that is next to your current firmware for example your having custom firmware 3.05 m33-2 the next firmware would be custom firmware 3.06 m33-2. cause some firmware may not work if your having a firmware that is lower than the requirement of your new firmware for example to update from custom firmware 5.00 your current custom firmware should be 4.01 if lower than 4.01 the firmware will not work.

Hello sir..or who it may concern........while playing my psp or while going to my home page it suddenly goes to most left and then i cant go anywhere it stays right there.please tell me what to do...


I would suggest restarting the system. Shut down the PSP, remove the battery, let it stand for a minute or so, put the battery back in place, start up the PSP. When the PSP is starting, do NOT touch anything. Moving the control could cause the PSP to assume that moved position is the neutral base position. If this does not fix it, contact Sony directly.

Psp failed to update mlb 09 and now the screen is froze.


take off the battery and try again. If this doesn't help then the copy of the mlb game is defective.

Or you can just update your PSP through your computer (if you have internet)

Laading new game problems


Get your PSP fully charged, then go WiFi, and do a network update. Follow the instructions carefully. Update is under the tool menu and I think it is the top item.

Psp wont charge or hold a charger


It could be a bad battery or you can check under the psp if you can turn it on and make sure that under Settings > System Settings > USB Charge is set to on. If it is and it isn't charging then it's a bad battery.

PSP CHARGING PROBLEMS


The way to properly break in a lithium Ion battery is to run it dead before you recharge it. Then fully recharge it and run it until it's dead again. Do this about 3-5 times and then the battery is properly broken in. If you charge it before it dies on a new battery you can build what they call a "memory" where the battery thinks it's fully charged however it's only maybe half charged and you will lose alot of life out of your battery. So make sure you properly break it in.

Psp upgrade to 3.51


In order to update, you need to have your psp FULLY CHARGED, I mean 100%, and have your psp setup to connect to the internet via wifi, after that, you can go to the setting section, select network update to update your psp to the latest version.

Alternatively, if you have a memory stick, you can download the firmware update from the internet to your memory stick.

Both method need a memory stick. If you already have one, I can give you the link below in order to download the firmware update.

http://www.us.playstation.com/PSP/About/SystemUpdate

Instructions was given in that link. If you have any questions please ask.

AGAIN. I HAVE TO WARN YOU TO HAVE YOUR BATTERY CHARGED 100% BEFORE PROCEED TO UPDATE, OR YOU WILL END UP WITH A BRICKED PSP!
