Your PSP will detect any wireless wireless network within its range as long as the wireless adapter is switched on. The switch for this is on the left end of the PSP, near the analogue thumbstick. If the switch is in the down position, the wireless network adapter is off; push the switch into the up position and it'll turn it on. If you're not going to be using wireless networking it's a good idea to keep it turned off as it'll make your batteries last longer.
When you turn on your PSP's wireless adapter it'll look for any wireless networks nearby. If there's another PSP within range it'll automatically set up what's called an 'ad-hoc' network between the two. This will enable you to play multiplayer games between the two PSPs with one hosting the game and the other joining it. When you want to join an existing wireless network, such as when you want to browse the internet, you'll be using an 'infrastructure' wireless networking mode.
To connect to a wireless network, go to the home screen of your PSP and look under Settings. If you scroll all the way to the bottom you'll find Network Settings, so enter this and on the next screen you'll be asked to choose between Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure, so pick the latter by selecting it and pressing X. Press O to return to the previous screen. You'll need to set up a Connection. You can save the settings for 10 different Connections and you can choose between the Connections you've set up whenever you need to use the Infrastructure network mode.
Pick New Connection and press X. You can give the new Connection a name by pressing X and using the text-entry screen. Give it a descriptive name like 'Home Network' or 'University Network' so you know when and where you can use it. When you've entered the name for your new Connection you'll be asked whether you want to scan for WLAN settings or to enter them manually; select the Scan option and press right on the directional-pad. Your PSP will then scan the area for any available networks and collect the settings needed.
A list of available networks (called Access Points) will be displayed, giving its name (called an SSID), whether it's encrypted or not and the signal strength. If there is more than one network, use the D-pad to scroll down to the one you want to join and press X. You'll be asked to confirm the settings so press right on the D-pad to scroll through each. When you get to the security settings, choose the appropriate setting from the list, which is WEP in most cases, and press right on the D-pad again. If you need to enter the WEP key, speak to whoever runs the wireless network and they'll provide it for you. Press X and enter the WEP using the text-entry screen.
Once you've done that you can check the settings you've entered on the final screen and save them. Now you'll be able to connect to the wireless network. If you return to the main home screen you can now update your PSP's software by going to Settings and selecting Network Update. Alternatively you can go to the Network section on the far right of the home screen to browse the internet using the PSP's in-built internet browser. Or you can fire up that multi-player game you've been itching to try out and get going!
I would try removing the battery for a full minute and then reinsert the battery and light reset it.
Should that not work I would try a different game and see how that responds, maybe the game itself might have suffered damage.
If that reset does not work then a hard factory reset can be tried. This will erase all stats and everything and restore it to new out of the box status. Save any data on a USB drive before doing this if you want to keep it. The steps for this are -
Power off the game for at least 5 seconds.
Now hold down these buttons "select,start, the "square" button, and the "triangle" button all at the same time and then start the PSP up (while still holding them 4 buttons down.
At this time the screen will be black for a few seconds while it resets. This is normal, wait for the PSP to light up.
When the PSP lights up the hard reset has been performed.
If non of this helps the PSP come to normal then I recommend contacting Sony as it would be possible, at this point, that the PSP has suffered internal damage.
On the lower left-hand side of your PSP, you will notice a
little silver slider. Slide the switch up and this will turn on the WiFi
feature on the PSP. Of course, you do need a home WiFi setup for this
to work. Your battery also needs to be full. Even if your battery is low
and your unit is plugged in to an outlet, the firmware upgrade may not
With a fully charged device, go to your PSP's home screen and
choose "Network Update."
This screen will ask you for your WLAN settings. Choose
"Scan" and let the PSP detect the network automatically. Choose the
right one and keep all of your settings in the default stage. Press the
"X" button and the PSP will save the configuration as your new access
Choose it again and when your PSP connects to the network,
and if there is an update available, you will automaically see the
following message: "Network Update has found a later version. To
download, insert a Memory Stick with at least 14MB of free space and
press the X button."
Press the "X" button and you should see the message:
"Downloading." IMPORTANT - Do not turn off your PSP or remove the memory
card during this time!
When the download is finished, you will see the following
message: "Download completed. The update is now available on your Memory
Stick. To install now, press the x button. To install later, go to
[Game]." Press the "X" button to install the new firmware. You may see a
few other screens detailing new features to be included in the upgrade,
but eventually you will see "Installing."
During the installation, again, do not turn it off or remove
the memory card. Once installation is finished, the PSP will tell you to
press "X" to restart the PSP. When it powers back up, the new firmware
will be in place.
Try calibrating your PSPs analog stick, here's how:
1. Go to Settings>System Settings
2. With the System Information screen displayed, rotate your analog stick in a circular motion (clockwise and counter clockwise). This will adjust the analog stick's range of motion.
3. Exit the Settings then run your game and test the analog stick. (it should be working well by now)
I hope this helps.
Sometimes the PSP's will freeze for one reason or another. In most cases the psp will turn off within a minute and then restart itself. If not disconnect any power supply and remove the battery for a moment to manually reset it. Hopefully you saved recently.
