Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Sony We bought a PSP for our son last xmas. A few weeks ago it decided not to recognise the game discs anymore. Im quite handy with a PC but know nothing about these things. Weve also misplaced the receipt, but a few friends of mine seem to think it may be a software problem. Can you please help?

Ihave just boughtthe FIFA 10 game for my 8 year old son before Xmas.We were away on holiday for 2 weeks over xmas and my son did not use the xbox at all until this week.When he put the game in the Xbox it...

If it is suspicious I would take it back to the store and have them show you any open xbox game they have, or if you have an xbox game take it out and compare the two. All xbox games should look the same. If it does not, I would recommend taking both to the store and demanding an explanation. When you bought the game was it opened or wrap sealed?

Good Luck!

Cant get games to play on my sons psp

This may be a number of problems. The disc might be scratched or damaged. Or there could be dust on the leans.

You say it's a second hand PSP? In that case, you may need to repare it. I'm not quite sure where to go to get repares. Sorry.

Psp ( i cant get games to play )

Have you inserted the game disc UMD into the PSP itself? You have to wait a few seconds after you turn it on before the game icon will be visible in the main menu screen before you can access the game. When it's active and you have the game icon selected press the "X" button to start the game.

Psp not recognising game discs

The operating system is in the flasho and flash1 you wud not see it by merely connecting usb. If its not a lens problem or board, den I believe u shud check the umds because they are very sensitive and get scratched easily
