Re: psp problem

It is normal for it to look for other players, if you have the Wifi circuit on and set for ADhoc mode. When you look insiode the UMD drive, you will see a black knob sticking up and just behind it is a Grey or Black ped sticking up. Turn the PSP on and press down on this peg. you should look for the Lase to Light up and look for the Disc spindle to spin. If the laser does not light up, your Laser needs to be replaced. Same deal is your Spindle does not spin.

Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom fo this screen. On the next screen select "Video Game Consoles" . Ask the Repair shop if they know what a UMD is. If they do and tell you its a PSP Game disc, then they know about PSP's

Psp wont play umd

Well, either there is something wrong with the game or the PSP is messing up. If i were you, i would take the game back in exchange for a new game, but get the same game. I would try it in the PSP. If it doesn't work then there is something wrong with the PSP. If the PSP still has a warranty, then you can contact the manufacturers and they could see what the problem is. If you don't want to do that and if you Just bought the PSP then exchange it for a new one. But if you have had it for awhile now, i don't think you could get a new PSP. So, i hope i helped you out some. Good Luck.

Green light comes on but nothing else turns on

I'll give you the quick story of what they did. They "bricked" the PSP. This is a term used by all PSP hackers. When you try to hack the system so you can play pirated games on the system, you will occasionally get an error that causes the system to be "bricked". They use the word "brick" because once it happens, the PSP becomes as fun as a brick. You really can't do much about it. Your best bet is to call Sony and see what they can do for you. If you know anyone else that knows what they're doing with PSPs, you could always ask them to fix it for you, but Sony would be the easiest. They won't do it for free, but they will fix it for you. 1-800-345-SONY

PSP screen wont go on

What happened was that the new game was doing the update before you said no. It was removing the memory from the psp and when you try to turn it back on, there is no memory for it to start. The only that can be done is that it has to going into the shop for repair/exchange....there is nothing you can do to get back the psp working again. It also happened to me and Sony explained the problem.
