Since the PSP is pretty much un-"do it yourself" fixable, I would call Sony or another electronics repair company to fix the PSP for you.

I have a problem on my psp. while im playing Dissidia 012 the volume simply went off. so i push the + volume button to increase . but nothing happend. so i dont know whats the problem with that . so please...


Your Volume Down button is probably malfunctioned and is stuck down. The following website sells the exact part you would need, the home volume select etc, switch under the bar on the inside. They also install it if you're not comfortable doing it:

How to fix Volume issues in PSP Portable


How to Fix a PSP Volume Button through Software
Check to be sure that your PlayStation Portable's AVLS (Automatic Volume Limiter System) is turned off.
Start your PSP without a game in it. Choose "Settings," then select "Sound Settings." If the AVLS option is "ON," turn it "OFF."
Check to see that your memory stick is inserted properly if the sound still does not work. This often interferes with the volume control. Remove the memory stick and reinsert it.
Perform a hard reset of your PSP if the volume still does not work. To do this, first unplug your PSP and remove any games or memory sticks. Then remove the battery from its cavity on the back. Press and hold any button for five seconds, then reinstall your battery.
Move on to hardware solutions if none of the above options work
How to Fix a PSP Volume Button through Hardware
Remove your PlayStation Portable's battery pack, any games and memory sticks. Unplug it.
Unscrew all five screws that hold the faceplate onto your PSP. The fifth is hard to locate, so find it just below the screen on the bottom edge.
Clean the button heads underneath the volume buttons with a small cloth. You should also clean the Home button nearby as this often interferes with the volume button.
Return the faceplate and screws, and test your PSP.

How to formate PSP 3004?


Hi prakash924,

Based on your concern, I recommend trying the following steps:

You can format your Sony PSP by doing this:

1. Push the little HOME button on the bottom left of the face of the unit.
2. go to the system setting by Using the arrow keys to move to the SETTINGS area, then move the up and down keys until you get to System Settings.
3. Once you are there, click on the "X" button and scroll up and down as needed to find Format Memory Stick. Click on "X" again to select that option.
4. The Sony PSP will now confirm that you want to reformat the memory stick (which removes every file and game save thereon): choose yes and it'll format in just a few seconds.

Now you have a new Memory Stick to work with and should have no problems with music, photos or other material you might seek to copy onto your PSP.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

Wet psp volume and home does not work, can not recharge battery


Your PSP is bricked, and unfortunately this cannot be fixed because its a hardware brick. The PSP needs to be replaced.

My psp sound quit working. it went low and now no sound at all.


I take it the volume control doesn’t change it? If the level went down rather fast the Volume decrease button (-) might have gotten stuck down.

Have you tried different set of ear buds (headphones)?

It sounds like the pc board that the volume buttons are in is damaged or coming loose. Aany repair shop that services PSP's should be able to fix that.
