Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

PsP power and memory problems.

I can rarely get the psp to turn on but if it does come on. I cant press any useful buttons or move from the position on the home screen I am in.Which is shaped like the memory card. There is what looks like a lock above this symbol and in the top right corner where the battery length and date is, there's a key symbol. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

The key means that you have the power on hold. check the power switch and if you see a little yellow circle it willbe on hold push it up a bit and you should be able to use the buttons

When i press the home button oy psp, i cant use the directional bons to click yes so that i may quit the game i'm playing. and sometimes the "o" button seems to be pressed while i'm...


The problem, as you describe, is exactly that! One of your buttons is stuck down in the pressed position. If you press Home and the screen comes up asking you if you want to quit and a button is already pressed down, you will not be able to press X to confirm yes or no.

You didn't specify which PSP you have, 1001, 2001, or 3001, but the following website sells the part you need to fix this issue. They also perform repairs if you're not comfortable doing it yourself. It's a pretty cheap and straightforward part to replace:

Cant download game on psp


Hi sprasar,

Based on your concern, I suggest trying the followingsteps:

1. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable.
2. Press the "home" button on the PSP
--> at the lower left of the screen you can see the home button.
3. Use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings",then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP.
4. Press the "X" button, your PSP should display"USB Connection".
5. Please wait until your computer tells you that a new USB devicehas been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:
6. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
7. Now look for ISO folder then copy your desired game (ISO file)into the folder.
8. When you're done copying your desired games, press the"O" button on the PSP to get out of USB connect mode.
9. To play the game, Use the left-right arrows to move to the gamearea, then the up-down arrows to find "Memory Stick". Chose thatfolder by pressing the "X" button again, and you should be able toplay all your favorite game!

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa,

Select and home button malfunction.


I used to have the same problem. Unfortunately, this is because your PSP has become physically damaged. The music button has been permanently locked in the pressed position, and whenever you hit Home, it thinks you are releasing the Music button, which mutes the system. This specific problem I have dealt with personally. I assume the other two are similar in nature. Unfortunately, all you can do about this is to get it fixed (somehow...), by a new psp, or learn to deal with it :(

If fixing and dealing with it is not an option, why not use it as an excuse to pick up a psp go when it drops? or if the lack of UMD is a turnoff, maybe a slim (if you don't have that already)

Sorry dude.

  5. Select a connection and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.

  6. The web page is displayed.

  7. To hide the on-screen menu, press the icn_btntriangle_color.gif button.
