Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

Power related problem

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?

Your PSP is in a hold position, this is because when you have turned it on you have moved the power swith down, thus placing it in hold. When you turn on your console move the power switch up instead of down, only move it up once and it wont be in hold. Hope i have helped you.

Psp power indicater lights up green but does no turn on.


Hi.
It's probably bricked (dead). We need to know what's your last activity before it bricked. Mostly, bricked PSP is due to interruption during firmware update. Or when you install a CFW (Customized Firmware) by using ChickHen.
If your PSP is the slim type, you need to know what type of Motherboard it has. You will be lucky if you don't have a PSP with TA088v3 MoBo. Since you can no longer turn on your PSP, you will have no chance knowing the MoBo. But this procedure below is worth the try;
1.) Turn off your PSP by pressing the power button at least 10 seconds and green light is gone. 2.) While turned off, do one of the following until you boot into Recovery Mode;
a.) press the "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button. b.) press both "L" and "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button.
3.) If you are successful booting your PSP into recovery mode, google on how to recover your flash0 file...

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!

Cant download songs,movies,from macbook to psp


here are the steps you'll need to go through to get your music to download successful from your Windows PC to your new Sony PSP unit:
  1. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable. (about $10: buy a USB cable for your PSP)
  2. Press the "home" button on the PSP (it's a tiny button to the lower left of the screen) then use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP.
  3. Press the "X" button (you got it, the round button with the "X" on it) and your PSP should display "USB Connection".
  4. In a moment or two your computer should tell you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:
  5. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
  6. Now create a new folder on that drive and name it "psp".
  7. Within the new "psp" folder create another folder, and name it "music".
  8. Copy your desired mp3 files into the new "music" folder.
  9. When you're done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button on the PSP to get out of USB connect mode.
Now you're ready to go! Use the left-right arrows to move to the music area, then the up-down arrows to find "Memory Stick". Chose that folder by pressing the "X" button again, and you should be able to find all your favorite music!
Note that the PSP running older firmware (firmware is the "operating system" of the PSP) does not support any Windows Media formats i.e WMA & WMV, so any music you have in that format must be converted to MP3 before copying to your PSP. Fortunately, Sony's very own Image Converter 2.1 can convert all your music with a very simple GUi and will then also manage all the measuring and transfering for you too.
If Image Converter doesn't seem up to snuff, then there are various other solutions for converting audio files, including the free Windows application
If you really want to play WMA format audio files, make sure you have the latest version of the firmware from Sony (see below for update instructions).

My psp was working before but now it suddenly hanged up..i cant use it now..how can i reformat my psp?? do you know some ways???


Hello :

  1. Remove the battery from the left side of the PSP while it is still on. The unit will power down instantly. Wait ten seconds and then replace the battery.
  2. Press both clear shoulder buttons at the top of the PSP and keep them held while the PSP reboots. A "Recovery" mode will be initiated.
  3. Press down on the control pad to locate a "recovery" folder. This will contain all of your PSP content, including games, music, videos and podcasts that are saved on the device. Highlight this folder and press the "X" button to begin reinstalling your content.

Warnings
  • If you would like to reset your PSP while it is working normally, you can do so by going to the Settings menu and selecting "System Reset." This will get rid of all your content and restore the PSP to factory settings (and subsequently remove all of your content.)

Or try this for hard resetting :

  1. Locate your Power button on your PSP. Push the power button up for 10 seconds.
  2. The PSP will and should shut off. Leave the PSP off for 30 seconds.
  3. Turn your PSP back on by flicking the power button up very quickly. If it doesn't turn on, try pushing the power button forward very quickly again. (sometimes you have to do it 2-3 times)
  4. Your PSP should be working now. If not, then you may have a firmware problem.
Warning:
  • Do not have your PSP plugged into a power supply.
  • If your PSP doesn't turn off after 10 seconds (of power button being help up) then remove your battery and wait 30 seconds, and then replace
good luck .

rate please !

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.
