My "select" Button will not work

Everything works on my PSP but the select button. I haven't dropped my PSP once and this is the only thing on the PSP that doesn't seem to want to work. I can't play Midnight Club LA Edition on my PSP and I just got the game.

The entire row of buttons on the bottom are on the same strip under the cover. This strip plugs into the power board and it can be checked out with a continuity tester, just look for the 2 pins that show cont when the pad is pushed on the strip. You can get new strips on the internet for a few bucks. Easy to replace if you can get the cover off, just 6 screws but youll void any warranty you may have on it as 2 of the screws are under a tamper proof sticker in the battery compartment.

X triangle square circle button not responding everything else works my brother said he dropped but im sure he did more than that (so i am not really sure what happen ) help please --i cleaned the buttons...


Hi,
That means the button pad connector might be disconnected to the main board inside that PSP.

Better bring it to your technician to check on it. To access that area your PSP will be open up, the connector is behind the LCD screen.

Hope FixYa helps you out!

    Ok,I dropped my PSP and evertime I turn it on,it goes to the "Sony Entertainment"thing,then goes to the moving wave background and stays that way.I have to remove the battery to turn it off.


    Hi,

    Pull out the battery again and before you put it back on press and hold the select button. While holding the select button, go ahead and turn it on. Still hold the select button say 45 seconds after switching on.

    PSP start button and select button not work


    1. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable. (about $10: buy a USB cable for your PSP)
    2. Press the "home" button on the PSP (it's a tiny button to the lower left of the screen) then use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP.
    3. Press the "X" button (you got it, the round button with the "X" on it) and your PSP should display "USB Connection".
    4. In a moment or two your computer should tell you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:
    5. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
    6. Now create a new folder on that drive and name it "psp".
    7. Within the new "psp" folder create another folder, and name it "music".
    8. Copy your desired mp3 files into the new "music" folder.
    9. When you're done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button on the PSP to get out of USB connect mode.

    My R button is my hold button


    Acutally is not like R=hold, the fact is, your R button is more likely to be semi-automatic or fully automatic now. Even on a fully working psp, when you press select or home button while you holding the L button or R button, the same thing will appear as your own psp.

    Let you know a temporary solution, hold the R or L button or both firmly for a minute, your psp might come back to normal for a few seconds or something.

    Look for some professional repair service to get your L or R repaired.

    Let me know if this works.
