Psp green light wont go off

Sounds like you have it in standby mode. PSP turns off with the switch going the same direction as you turned it on. Back to the top, slide the switch all the way DOWN and it is in standby mode ready to resume your game just where you left off. Unless of course the battery dies on in which case you get to do it all over again because it never saved anything.

When I switch on my PSP, it directly goes onto load the UMD game and when I try to quit using HOME button, the buttons and consoles dont work. Then I need to use the hold button after which though the...

Hi. Since you're in UMD Autoload mode, you need to configure that in the PSP Settings. To do this, turn off your PSP and remove your UMD. Now, turn it back on and it won't autoload your UMD since it wasn't there anymore.
Now, go to "Settings" and scroll down to "System Settings" and press X. Scroll down again the selection until you see "UMD Auto-Start" and press X. At the right side will appear the options "ON" and "OFF". Select "OFF" and press O button several times to go back to main screen.
Insert your UMD. Now, try playing games from Memory Stick. You may have to turn off your PSP and turn it on again to finally play homebrew...
I hope this helps...

Hi,I updated my psp to 4.05 and know it doesn't play games from my mem.stick

Is that custom firmware 4.05? This will only work if you have a custom firmware m33. What you may need to do is take your battery out and put it back in while holding the Right trigger it will bring up a menu (if you do it right) called the M33 Recovery Menu, go down to "Configuration" go into it and go to "UMD Mode" and press "x" until it says (currently M33 Driver - No UMD), Then quit out and start and play like normal if this doesn't work e-mail me at :

Psp trouble

Hello, can you please explain in more detail about what is happening? Maybe if you were playing a lot of PSP, your keys might be jammed up in the circuit boards and when you play a game, some things are kind of pushing it to move the character.
Second question, in the main menu, is anything moving by itself?

Psp ( i cant get games to play )

Have you inserted the game disc UMD into the PSP itself? You have to wait a few seconds after you turn it on before the game icon will be visible in the main menu screen before you can access the game. When it's active and you have the game icon selected press the "X" button to start the game.
