Question about Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

I've dropped my PSP entirely too much, but it's always worked just fine. The last time i dropped it, however, the battery came out, and when i put it back it, it didn't work. The PSP works completely fine when it is plugged into a charger, and the battery works when it is pushed down into place, and held by my thumb. Is there any way to fix this?

You need to buy a new cover, or if you have the previous cover you can always just use a small piece of flame proof material to give it that extra push when the cover is on.

Hello,
The entire PlayStation Network is down at the moment. Sony Entertainment is working on this. The code is from the site not a physical error with your PSP. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this but to wait until the PSN goes back online.

My pc does not read my psp, how do i fix it.? do i need to install a psp driver.? where do i find such driver for free.?


Hook up your Sony PSP to your computer via a USB cable. Turn on the PSP and put it in "USB CONNECT " mode (it should display the words "USB CONNECT" on the PSP display during the entire time you're transferring files, and plug it in if you don't have a fully charged battery).

My psp dosen't work well


have you modded the psp in anyway? are you trying to use homebrew apps? if you are trying to use a umd and you have modified anything other than stock then you need to clock your psp back to the factory level because the voltage is dropping too low from the umd reader activating and the strain the cpu is putting on the battery you could also try resetting everything to factory defaults afterall this is what the games are designed for

Memory stick duo won't read!


You probably need a new memory stick module inside the PSP. I have seen this many times in my store and we replaced the board and it worked fine. Contact your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. See if there is a Play-N-Trade within your area. I work at one and we do repairs. I'm not sure if Gamestop or Gamecrazy do repairs.

Battery Problem, or Battery Prong problem


Seems like the battery cover is doing something funky. Try putting a small piece of wood between the battery and the battery cover and make sure the cover closes tightly.

Hi Bigturbo,

 

If the PSP gets dropped and nothing works but the light saying its on.  You have jarred plenty of stuff loose.  I work on PSP systems all the time.  I have to have everything put togther tightly to get it to work porperly. 

If you can afford a repair, from $30 to $85, contact me at Repairtech@Playstationclinic.com.  In the mean time, REMOVE THE BATTERY.   You could be destroying the motherboard. That a $50 part.  If you live outside the United States shipping charges will raise the cost. The $30 to $85 includes Return shipping to the USA.  If your Repair estimate exceeds $115 including shipping, it is considered totaled.  BAsically cheaper to buy a used one on Ebay than fix the one you have.
