Hi Bobby boy,

I run the Playstation Clinic and can give it a try at repair. Remove the battery from the PSP as soon as possible and keep it out until you get it repaired. My basic fee is $25 plus shipping. I will inspect and clean up the insides, and UMD laser for you. Conatct me at i will give you details of the service. I do recommend if your not Technicaly experienced with the details of the PSP, it is not good to mess with the internals.

    Ok Bobbyboy,

    I did not know you were in the UK.  Go check out and see tutorial on PSP disassembly. This may help you disassemble your psp  to get all the soda pop out.  If you leave the battery in the PSP, the soda pop will do someting like an Electroplating process as seen in a chrome plating factory. It will move copper from one circuit trace to another and short out the whole thing if the battery is left in till its cleaned.  Good luck.

If the unit is under warranty, call Sony 1-877-899-SONY. If not, or you just don't care we read on:

1: Remove the battery

2:Remove warranty sticker from behind the battery

3:Remove the 2 screws from behind the battery, and the 2 screws from the other side of the back.

4:Remove the 2 screws from the top of the PSP

5:Remove the single screw from the bottom of the PSP

6:Now you will need something to pry the front bezel off. I would use a tool called a splunger, but anything similar will do

7:Now starting on the "R" button side, gently pry the casing up and remove the bezel.

8: Check your "X" button for noticeable dirt or stickiness. Use a Cotton Swab with 99.9% rubbing Alcohol and clean all your buttons that are sticking. Give the unit some time to dry (5-10 mins)

9: Reassemble and test

My psp volume button will not work can you help but its only the one to turn it up not down

When this happens, it's because the volume button on the inside is messed up. Usually it's because it's dirty or sticky and sticks down [or presses itself]. You can try opening it and cleaning under the volume button. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the home/volume/start/select circuit ribbon cable. If you're not comfortable opening it, check the following company -- they would repair something like this for $29

This occurs sometimes when you get either dust or some other substance built up inside of the system under the button. If you spilled some sort of liquid on it that would definitely cause it.

Either way, you can open the system up and clean off the dust or sticky substance, but I would not recommend doing it yourself unless you are familiar with these devices. It is best to take it to a local computer or gaming console repair shop. I am sure they would not charge you much to fix it. If you feel that you would like to try it yourself then here is a link that will show you step-by-step(with pictures) how to take the system apart.

Spilled liquid on PSP

Try putting it in a bag of rice for a day or so, because rice absorbs moisture, so it might draw out any water still inside. Hope this helps.

My psp wont read umd discs

You have probably only 2 options on this one.
1. Try using compressed air. If there is anything keeping the disc from being read, i.e. dust on the lens or some other obstruction, you don't want to touch the laser. Open up the UMD tray and spray out the inside of the tray. This will remove anything that might be causing the system to stop reading discs.
2. If that doesn't work, then the only other option would be to call Sony. It won't be fun if you're out of warranty. The system does carry a 1 year limited warranty, but this should be covered. Oh, Sony can look up the date of purchase if you don't have your receipt, so don't 'fold' if they tell you that you need the receipt. Just tell them to look it up by the serial number.

A problem with my psp

Use lighter fluid. It works perfectly. Rubbing alcohol also works well, but lighter fluid works the best and won't take off paint or anything on your psp. Just be sure not to let any lighter fluid get inside the psp. Put some lighter fluid on a paper towel or cloth and rub the sticky adhesive off.
