My guess is you used a regular Q-tip to clean the laser lens and it left cotton hairs on the lens. I like to use the foam swabs. You can press the little swtich sticking up inside the UMD compartment. It is on the left and back about 1 inch. When you press it you should see your Laser light up and the spindle spin. This will tell you if the laser and spindlge work. You can physically move to Laser over to the right a few clicks and put the UMD back in it and look to see if the laser moves left and right. if it still does light up, spin the spindle and move left and right, then it probably will need its lens cleaned.

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.


Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

    I have a psp and i dont know if the psp is broken or is it my charger or battery please help sony model psp-110 battery pack 3.6


    Hello there,

    When you charge the PSP, does the charging light indicator at he lower right corner lights up as red? If not, then the battery is not being charged at all. But if it does lights up but does not power up the PSP, then the first this to troubleshoot this problem is put in another battery pack. If it powers up, then your battery needs to be changed.

    Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hey, i have a problem with my sony PSP when i start my PSP the green power light is on but there is nothing to display and the memory stick light keeps flickering too , please help ???


    Hello there

    You'll need to hard reset your PSP and restore it to its factory settings. Once this is done, your PSP should work perfectly.

    Hold the power button on the right side of your PSP down until the device completely powers off. Wait at least five seconds after the power is off before proceeding to the next step.

    Press and hold the Select and Start buttons located in the bottom right corner of the PSP.

    Press and hold the Square and Triangle buttons (located on the directional pad) while continuing to hold the Select and Start buttons.

    Press the power button while holding these four buttons. When the flash (logo) screen appears, you can release the four buttons and your PSP will be reset to its factory settings and the screen will no longer be blank.

    Psp hanging


    The circle in the lower right hand corner of the PSP screen is showing that a disc is being read. I would say take out any discs you're using and try to run things directly off of the memory card. I'm not going to dive into anything else, because Custom Firmware on the PSP is a tricky situation that you really shouldn't be asking about on FixYa.com.

    My psp wont charg


    If it won't charge and wont power up then same thing happened to me. If you are willing to open up your psp there is a video on youtube that can show you whats wrong. The cable that connects the buttons on the right side most likely disconnected from the main board and the right side of the psp including the buttons, the power switch and the top right trigger won't respond. When you try to turn on the psp and when its charging if the light won't come on then you might have this problem.

    Hi Gohan102,

     

    Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....
