Re: Help my PSP

If not on hold then you may have to remove lid. by the screws under batt. and on side of PSP. Be very careful to not break anything, remember if it does not come off easy then there maybe another screw in place. Once open cleaned the pads that are beside home button and replace lid. Hope this helps

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 start button not workin home menu not either

try dismantling your psp and see the inside of it, you said you cleaned the buttons. try to see if the chips inside the psp are sort of dirty and stuff, the access points in wear the buttons touch, if this still doesn't work, just go to a original SONY STORE.

Select button wont work

the control chip under the button isnt making contact with the plastic button,, easy fix, take the cover off the psp clean the buttons with a pencil eraser and put the cover back on (without screwing it down) check for contact,,,,if it works then screw it back together if it doesnt then pop the cover off and put a small piece of tape on the select button its self to make up for the slack). Hope this helps you worked for me!

The "home" button on my PSP does not work

I have the same problem.. I cant put YES on home and my R button isnt working either.. but I've noticed that if I push down the power button to the HOLD lvl and then put it again to the medium lvl it works like the R button -_-'' ..

My R button is my hold button

Acutally is not like R=hold, the fact is, your R button is more likely to be semi-automatic or fully automatic now. Even on a fully working psp, when you press select or home button while you holding the L button or R button, the same thing will appear as your own psp.

Let you know a temporary solution, hold the R or L button or both firmly for a minute, your psp might come back to normal for a few seconds or something.

Look for some professional repair service to get your L or R repaired.

Let me know if this works.

The select button on psp

Hi Denzilsias

If you are electronically skilled, You can replace the Button strip. Get on Ebay, and buy you one. It is called the PSP button bar. Now to be honest with you, your problem may not be with the Button Bar at all, but the ABXY Board that the Button bar plugs into.
Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen, then on the next page, click on "Video Game Consoles" find a Repair shop that has experience working on PSP's. They will put the right part in.
