I upgrade my psp 5.33 to 6.31..i want to downgrade the version_

As far as we know right now, there is no way to downgrade a PSP 3000.

The older PSP 1000 and PSP 2000 systems could accept a special battery called a Pandora's battery and a special memory card with the PSP firmware. This battery would force the PSP to turn on and boot from the memory card. The special software on the memory card would load new system software of your choice (that exists on the memory card) onto your PSP. This includes older firmware or custom firmware.

As far as I know, there is no pandora's battery for the PSP-3000.

I have a sony psp how do I check what type it is?

usually there is a sticker below the select/start button. its like a barcode. and at the end of it should read something like this.....psp 1000 or psp 1001 (these are also known as the "FAT") psp 2000 or psp 2001(these are also known as the "SLIMS"), psp 3000 or psp 3001 etc.. (these are also known as the "NEW SLIM"), and of course you have the new psp which is the psp-go and they look totally different all together.

if you want to know what firmware version you have turn on your psp and go to SETTINGS>SYSTEM SETTINGS>SYSTEM INFORMATION.. and click "X" it should show you these information

system software -- the latest version of firmware u installed on your psp

nickname -- the name you gave your psp when you set it up

mac address -- mac address

Psp won't load umd games

The UMD drive is bad, you can either look around for a replacement drive if you know how to take apart your PSP to replace the drive or just get a new PSP.

I bought a new psp n cant play games on it by memory stick

Yes '4.21' is the PSP's preloaded firmware. You are wanting Custom Firmware (CFW), so you can avoid paying for the expensive games, I guess.
This is an extremely fraught process involving hacking the PSP's battery, downloading files like POPSLoader and CXMB which are, in turn, difficult to find, and perilously difficult to install without bricking your PSP, then you need to use 'Recovery' and 'CWCheat', and this is just the process of readying the PSP for use..
Then you have to be able to get games, and get them onto your machine. This is another process with many careful steps..

I suggest you go and find a PSP-modding forum and look at walkthroughs of the entire process before you even begin thinking about tackling this yourself. And if you still think it's possible for a PSP newbie to attempt this, then get reliable help from the forums or someone you know personally, who knows what they are doing.

Otherwise you'll end up with a brick!

I won't expand any further, my friend, because while Fixya! is wonderful platform for sharing tips and guidance, it is not a platform for the legally dubious community of software modders, or a place where you'll ever be advised to take questionable risks with your products.

So go check out the PSP-modding forums and check youtube for how-to-guides, if you wish, but, seeing as you asked me, I advise you to get someone experienced with this process to do it for you, or to just leave it alone.

Good Luck :)

Psp Won't turn on but shows a green light i dont know what to do.

Wait till you know that the PSP is on for sure and press the display button which is right next to the mute button.

If nothing comes up on the screen then its time to send it into the manufacturer or to by a new one .
