Open Question

New psp does not play ben 10 game properly has sound but no visual? Hi Anggeraghty. We also have this problem. Have tried 3 different UMDs of which not work in our PSP but work fine on a friend's machine. What version of firmware do you have loaded on your machine, this can be found under settings, system settings, system information. Ours is version 3.9.5

    Could you please describe what happens in further detail ?

    Example - PSP is turned on and the game is inserted. It gets to the PSP logo that shows before games are played but then the screen turns black and stays black.

    Does your laser make any unusual noises ? Do other games play ? Can your PSP read movies ?

SOURCE: PSP with corrupt/unofficial firmware 3.03 OE-C (Code DADADADA)

Try to upgrade it 3.52 first and then jump to the latest 3.90. If you want to keep a CFW then check out http://www.dark-alex.org/ for more info.

Worst case you might have to 'unbrick' it with a Pandora's battery. See http://forums.qj.net/f-psp-pandora-discussion-207/t-guide-make-the-perfect-pandoras-battery-124530.html for a really good guide on how to make your own safely and the steps needed to 'unbrick' a corrupt PSP.

SOURCE: Downgrage psp version 5.51 to psp version 4.00

currently there is not a 5.51 to 4.00 downgrader. please check on the bottom of the silver trim on your psp there should be a bar code if the first four digits are AB02 then the psp is unhackable and you will have to use HEN to play games if the 4 digits are AB01 and below you can hack the psp via pandora

SOURCE: Formatted my psp and now it can't detect games.

  1. You need to download first ChickHEN R2 software from the internet and copy it to the PICTURE folder of your Memory Stick.
  2. After that you need to run the ChickHEN software to update your PSP firmware version.
  3. After that you need to copy the 5.03 GEN-C to your Memory Stick and run this update.

The disk is not readable


Try different games and see if the psp will play any of them. If it doesn't then take a can of air and gently blow some air into the slot where the games go. This will remove any dust or dirt that might be on the laser.

If the psp is playing some games but not others then the laser is going weak.

Either way if the PSP is not playing games or only recognizes some, then the laser needs to be replaced.

Can't play on the new PSP, games in the memory but


Hi,

I guess you pulled off the memory card from another of your psp that runs on a lower version. This would not play on the new psp 3006, i guess you won't also want to mess your battery up whilst trying to downgrade.

I suggest that you get the UMDs for the games you wish to play. That the safest way to keep your psp clean.

Regards

Used psp wont play games?


If the PSP that you bought is pre-owned... then..

..bring it back to 'Gamestop' & tell them truthfully that the PSP you bought doesn't play UMDs.

.. maybe there're problem's with the UMDs? Are they pre-owned?

If the PSP is brand new when you bought it, you can claim for FREE repairs, or perhaps a replacement from SONY! Mostly warrantys are just 1yr period, so you better 'do what you have to do' before Christmas!

When you insert a UMD into the PSP, then what happens? What appears on the screen?

- Do you hear the UMD drive spinning for quite awhile, but not loading up under the Game column?

?????

We had the same problem. Have just upgraded to the latest firmware (5.02) and this seems to have fixed it.

What are the difference?


5.01 is not good
it is not cfw (custom firmware)
custom firmware lets you do better and cooler stuff like play games without the umds off the memory stick and play homebrews
if it says version 5.01 or version 3.00 or vesion 3.71 and so on it is normal firmware
5.01m33-2, 5.01m33 and 3.71m33-3 and so on are cfw

PSP will not play games


What do you mean?

UMDs or Games saved in the Memory Stick?

If UMDs, your UMDs are scratched or the PSPs UMD Reader is damaged.

Games in Memory Stick, I don't know....

But if you play games and the PSP automatically enters the Home button, it's a virus. Fix it or Back up your PSP Files, and Reformat the Stick...

PSP region code


Yes, US movies are region 1 and China and Southeast Asian markets are region 3. This is supposedly to keep piracy low but considering you can't even burn UMDs yet that's kind of ridiculous. Go to http://www.engadget.com/2005/11/24/neuros-pumps-up-neuros-mpeg-4-recorder-2-for-psps-and-ipods/
to find a mpeg4 converter for UMDs or else you could get a new region 1 drive and flashing your bios. There's talk in the air about Sony releasing it's movies all regions from here on out due to this problem.
