Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer


My daughter got a psp last year and is very careful with it. The home key button keeps coming on and some games wont run. Is there a problem with the game case , doesnt look cracked but maybe its not as tight as it should be in the case. Local store said something what is needed is to put the came into a new cover case and that solves the problem.

The game case is not needed to run the game. Usually when you have the problems like you are experiencing you simply need to clean the disk in the case. You can sort of pry it apart to clean any finger prints off of the game disk. A single finger print is all it takes to prevent the game from running.
If you are unable to get the game cover apart try to use Windex on a soft cloth to remove the prints.

The home key keeps coming up without my pressing it. Why is this?

Sounds like an electrical problem. Many reasons why i would come up.
My suggestion, turn the psp's volume up all the way, same with the lcd brightness, take the front of the psp apart and detach the cable from the mother board.
It will stop this problem, but you will not be able to change the volume or brightness of the psp.
get some headphones that have a volume control.

If you don't feel conformable, dont do it then.

hi, maybe you are accidentally hitting the mute button and home button... try putting the psp on hold (you press down, instead of up on the power switch) and that will lock all your buttons!!
