PSP-1001 goes to initial setup whenever it is turned on and turns off when I try to play games

The PSP has no battery and I am trying to use it while it is connected to the ac adapter/charger, it also has a 4GB memory stick in it. Whenever I turn the PSP on it goes to the initial setup screen where you set the time and date, then it goes to the home screen with all the different system options. When I insert a UMD to try and play, it just shuts off and when I try to turn it on again it comes on for about 1 second and shuts back off. After a few tries, I remove the UMD and turn it on and it goes back to the initial setup. Does anyone know what this is and how to fix it? I already tried to reset to default settings, tested the laser/reader (it works fine) and pushed the laser over closer to the spinner (nothing happened). Do I need the battery for it to work?

SOURCE: UMD Icon Not Showing Up Under "Games" in menu

You've cleaned the disks but have you cleaned the laser? That'd be the next step before looking @ repair options.

It could be a number of things. 1. When you don't play your psp for awhile the battery dies. So try plugging it in. 2. If you have ran any online downloaded program recently you could have the bricker virus. Witch you would have to send it to sony to be fixed. 3.Try removing your memory stick and battery then turn it on with the power adapter plugged in.

Psp turning off while playing


Check the battery holder.Sometimes the battery holder can cause that problem.If you replaced your battery door make sure the new one have a little pad inside or the battery can get loose.
If this one don`t solve your problem try to upgrade the firmware.May be is a bug in the Firmware

Psp trouble


this is a bug/glitch in the psp system i would advise using pandoras battery and just put it back to 1.5 and try using custom firmware it runs smoother if you are not experienced with the psp get someone who is that has custom firmware to make a pandoras battery and downgrade to 1.5 then just update normally if that dosnt work try sending it to sony but this happens to me too sometimes not that often though ever since i went to custom firmware if you do get pandoras battery and want custom firmware look up Angelmikey all his psp videos are to the point and very deatailed hope this helps
