Re: not turning on

It is strictly prohibited to remove the battery or unplug the AC adaptor or remove UMD disc while the update is in progress and you had done the same mistake. now your PSP is bricked. it means your PSP is useless untill you replace motherboard of it with a new one. your PSP Operating system in motherboard is crashed.

Try to update for a game then game froze turned off system then turned back on got white screen saying put disc in and i do then it trys to load and the contrller is not connecting

it froze during an update? that can mean that the update was corrupted and needs to be deleted but if (all updates) are deleted does give the game a slight chance to not be able to restore old game files of that game if its a new game then no harm done you can't lose save files

Try a different game to see if the problem is with the game or the console.

Bought a new game, played an hour, froze, now doesn't load.

I had the same problem with GTA4.  I had to get an update for the game.  Check the website for updates for that game.  I also had to change a setting with the way it connects to the network.

My ps3 froze and it won't read games but it reads movies

It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

System froze while installing software update

well you have no choice but to turn it off...hopefullly when you reboot the machine it will attempt to reinstall the firmware..usually that is what the unit does. if it freezes again at 100percent it very well could be the 3rd partion sector of your SATA drive....ive seen this before.

Action Replay DS

All you need to do is, when you have those blue and red lines, means the codes are corrupted. To fix this, you will have to reset the Action Replay. To do that, you need to do this:

1. Hold down the A and B buttons before turning the console on.
2. Turn the Ds on while still holding the A and B, but when the health and safety screen comes up, hold down Start and Select too, so you now have 4 buttons held down.
3. Keep holding all 4 down until the main screen of the Action Replay appears. You'll have no games, which is no worry now because you can hook it up to the computer and update your AR with all the games again.

Hope this helps!

Wii will do everything but it won't play games.....

I had the same problem. No new games would play but the old games played fine. I clicked on the spinning disc icon (where the game should come up) and it prompted me to do an update. I accepted. Once the update was complete (took about a minute or 2) the new games worked fine.
