Psp freezes about 5 minutes into game play then shuts off

My psp freezes only during game play then shuts off.
after opening it and checking around now the psp picture is too bright making visual almost impossible.
What does the picture tube look like or what is the device that controls that and where is it located. Also how can I stop the games from freezing. Just got the damn thing in sept.07 new at the wall to wall. however lost the receipt. will probably end up getting a new one or something similar since already broken wanted to c if i could fix damage done. Please help?

Sounds unfixable, if you wait about a month i heard they are making a slimmer PSP and the old PSP price will go down :)

Psp will shut off in 5 minutes

could be a faulty battery.

they just use a NMH type battery similar to a cell phone, and they DO die occasionally, or if its been used a lot and not charged properly.
you can buy replacements from gaming stores, and from online auction sites. they go from US$10 to US$25 so shop around for a good price.

It could even be your PSP wall charger that isnt delivering enough juice to the battery?

PSP was dropped it will not turn on unless plugged into wall. After plugged in wall you can start playing a game but within a couple of minutes it shuts off. Please help.

You most likely have internal damage to the system from the fall. You may have broken the internal fan that cools the system during gameplay and that is why it is shutting off minutes after use. I recommend calling Sony to see if you are still under a warranty. It may be cheaper to have it replaced than to have it fixed.

I hope I was able to fixya problem and Happy Gaming!

Psp not playing

The firmware you are using on one PSP will play the game fine. But other types of firmware will not. Make sure that whatever system you play the game on it is the same firmware.

Psp freezes up during certain games

bet you are playing on a slim, turn of the umd cache in system settings then the problem stops perhaps the game (driver 76) doesnt support the umd cache system using the extra ram in the psp slim
well it worked for me anyway
