Press the Home button on your PSP, which is in the bottom left of the front. When you do, it should ask you if you want to exit. Select Yes.

    I'm sorry my suggestion didn't help you, but a "thanks for trying" rating would have been nicer than "inappropriate." If you're going to rate unsuccessful attempts to help you as "inappropriate" you might find people unwilling to try to help.

PSP turns on but stuck at gray screen with loading icon


I would advise on reinstalling the firmware with a pandora battery setup. Else, you may be able to insert a copy of Hellcat's recovery flasher onto your MMS and have it install a new firmware for you through the recovery menu. It just depends on how broken your PSP's firmware is at this time. The Wololo.net forums are your friend on this one.

How to connects yhe psp to the internet


  • 1

    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 work.

  • 2

    With a fully charged device, go to your PSP's home screen and choose "Network Update."

  • 3

    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 profile.

  • 4

    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."

  • 5

    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!

  • 6

    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."

  • 7

    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

    How can i upgrade my psp for free?


    You will need to get a wireless connection that has no WEP code or know the code of a router of your own. If youve turned on the Wlan switch at the top it should pick up signal that can connect you to the internet. Here is guide.
