Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

2 Answers

My PSP can no longer connect to the internet.

I recently updated to update 5.03 and now my PSP can't connect to the internet. I've tried everything including resetting my router, resetting my PSP back to default setting, simply turning my PSP off, taking out the battery, sitting closer to the wireless router and PLENTY of other things.

It always comes up with the error message:
A connection error has occured. The connection to the access point timed out.

By the way, I know for a fact that I am entering the correct WPA key to connect, because I've used it so many times.
My security settings for my wireless connection are:
WPA-PSK (TKIP)

Please help me... my PSP is a paperweight because the internet is my ONLY use for it.

I just got my psp and my ps3 has a psp demo on it but it says to update my psp and i don't know how to do it


On the PSP homescreen go to far left menu the ''settings'' menu and go to the top choice ''system update'' it should say ''Update via Internet'' and ''Update via Storage Media'' you need to choose Update via Internet you need a internet connection obviously,so if you haven't made internet settings for the PSP do it now.When you've done it go back to the part I mentioned above and choose Update via Internet I can't remember exactly what happens from here it's not too hard though just say yes to everything it should download it,once it's finished downloading,go back to system update,but this time choose Update Via Storage Media keep your charger plugged in now it might damage your PSP if it runs down while updating,when it's finished you go to back to the Games tab and select the Memory Stick,not the saved data utility,it should have the update in the folder you can delete this now because it'll just take up space on your memory card,it should be all done now.
good luck

Internet connection of psp


To connect to the internet on your PSP, you need a Wireless Router or Wireless Access Point. Once you have a wireless one, you should know the name of your router. That's what an SSID (Service Set Identifier) is.
Once you know this information you should be able to find your router on your PSP. Once you do you should have a password on your router so no one you don't know can use your internet. When adding a connection on your PSP you will also need to enter the password for your router. You can use WEP, WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES). WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES) have very high security and WEP has a lower security.
Once you have added your connection, just type an address and surf! Not all websites will load because some require too much memory.

Assuming you have Official SONY PSP Firmware, Update to the latest version by going to Settings>Network Update. Locate your router and use it as the network connection.
Download the needed files and update by going to Game>Memory Stick>PSP Update.

Once you finish Update, go to Network>Internet Radio>About Internet radio. It will take you to a website to download the files needed and will install to your Memory Stick.

To put music on your Memory Stick, the Music must be MP3, AAC, M4A or WMA format.
Open your memory stick on your computer by pluggin in a USB cable to your PSP and going to Network>USB Connection or you can put the memory stick in a card reader.
Once in the root of your memory stick, there should be a folder called "Music". Put your music in there or in one more folder inside that. Two folders inside of each other will not be playable.

Place videos in the "Video" folder on the root of your memory stick.
Videos need to be MP4 format. 368X208 Highest MPEG4 Codec, or 480X272 x264 or AVC codec.

Cant upgrade psp


Here's what you can do:

1. Connect your PSP to your PC.
2. Check if the proper folders are on it's Memory Stick. There is
a folder called PSP which had the following folders
underneath.


GAME
PICTURE
VIDEO
SYSTEM

3. The folder you need is GAME. Go in there and create a subfolder called UPDATE.

4. Go to www.playstation.com

5. Look for your local site.

6. Look in the PSP section for firmware updates. Here's the link for the most recent firmware update for the USA.
[PSP Firmware 3.80]

* If you need other regional firmware you'll need to look for it yourself or tell me where you from.

7. Download the file in the above link to a convenient place such as your desktop. Then copy it to the recently created UPDATE folder.

8. Safely disconnect your PSP.

9. Start up your PSP and go to the Game section of it, select Memory Stick. You should now see the file.

10. Open the file by pressing X. The update procedure starts. Be sure to follow the on screen instructions.

If you want to read these steps over again, click this link:
[Updating PSP via PC]

Warning: do not use firmware other then placed on Sony PlayStation's official site. For it might damage your system and it will never boot again. Also make sure the battery is fully charged (a charge of 50% will not do, the update utilty won't allow the update). Since it can take an few minutes you best connect it to it's power supply.

NEVER interupt an update by shutting your unit down, removing battery, removing stick, removing power. The damage done is not covered by Sony's warranty.

About the issue for the connection with your PS3 unit. It's true, you need one of the most recent firmwares.

I hope this helped you out, please rate my solution.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen
