There's nothing to do with the firmware, I am 99% sure you have a hardware failure with your L trigger or R trigger, try to go to the nickname section, give the L and R couple of taps, and see if you can enter any text, note, if you can enter something within a short time, that means you got hardware failure with your L or R, if you psp is still under warranty, go for a replacement.

Btw, this link come with my answer to another similar problem, enter a game, while it's running, press home button, and see if you can move the cursor between "yes" and "no" , if you cannot, press the R trigger or L for couple of times, and see if the coursor starts to blinking within a short time, if it blinks, I am sure you have hardware problems with L or R.

If you can't load only the NEW games that require higher Firmware versions, then you need to update Prometheus. Unfortunately, I can't help you with that here. Just google it.

When i try to get on the Internet, it won't let me because my text entry won't show up.


before you can go up to text entry,
you have to make sure your psp is not on hold position
also you have to push the triangle button and select the file option then select address entry.
if it works in any other pattern or refuses to work, you can try to format it and see if that helps. maybe the memory is too full and as a result it cannot process the commands properly.
you can also try removing the memory stick and see if that helps.
lastly, if all these refuses, the only option is to upgrade your psp firmware from under the settings option and that should solve it.
hope this helped you? please rate

How to use internet on psp


Fully charge your PSP. Using WiFi requires a lot of battery power.

Verify that you have access to a router or HotSpot. If your router is password protected, then be sure you know what the password is. Be aware that some public WiFi access point are incompatible with the PSP.

Update your PSP's firmware to the most current version. Newer versions of the firmware have better Internet features than older versions.

Turn on the WiFi switch on your PSP. On older PSP models this switch is located on the left side of the device. On newer models, it is located on the top of the device.

Select the Internet icon from the PSP's main menu.


TO START BROWSING

Look at the screen once the browser loads. By default it will load the Sony webpage. You can set your own homepage later.

Use the analog stick to control the mouse cursor. The "X" button is equivalent to clicking the mouse.

Use the circle button to reject a choice or to disconnect from the Internet.

Press the triangle button to bring up the address bar at the top of the screen and the options bar at the bottom of the screen. Selecting the address bar, or any place on a webpage that requires text entry will automatically bring up the virtual keyboard screen from which text may be entered.

Choose the icons along the options bar at the bottom of the screen to change settings, set a new homepage or access other browser features such as browsing history, bookmarks or help. Tool tips will help you identify the features you are looking for.

Acessing internet from my psp


Your PSP will detect any wireless wireless network within its range as long as the wireless adapter is switched on. The switch for this is on the left end of the PSP, near the analogue thumbstick. If the switch is in the down position, the wireless network adapter is off; push the switch into the up position and it'll turn it on. If you're not going to be using wireless networking it's a good idea to keep it turned off as it'll make your batteries last longer.

When you turn on your PSP's wireless adapter it'll look for any wireless networks nearby. If there's another PSP within range it'll automatically set up what's called an 'ad-hoc' network between the two. This will enable you to play multiplayer games between the two PSPs with one hosting the game and the other joining it. When you want to join an existing wireless network, such as when you want to browse the internet, you'll be using an 'infrastructure' wireless networking mode.

Pick New Connection and press X. You can give the new Connection a name by pressing X and using the text-entry screen. Give it a descriptive name like 'Home Network' or 'University Network' so you know when and where you can use it. When you've entered the name for your new Connection you'll be asked whether you want to scan for WLAN settings or to enter them manually; select the Scan option and press right on the directional-pad. Your PSP will then scan the area for any available networks and collect the settings needed

A list of available networks (called Access Points) will be displayed, giving its name (called an SSID), whether it's encrypted or not and the signal strength. If there is more than one network, use the D-pad to scroll down to the one you want to join and press X. You'll be asked to confirm the settings so press right on the D-pad to scroll through each. When you get to the security settings, choose the appropriate setting from the list, which is WEP in most cases, and press right on the D-pad again. If you need to enter the WEP key, speak to whoever runs the wireless network and they'll provide it for you. Press X and enter the WEP using the text-entry screen.

Once you've done that you can check the settings you've entered on the final screen and save them. Now you'll be able to connect to the wireless network. If you return to the main home screen you can now update your PSP's software by going to Settings and selecting Network Update. Alternatively you can go to the Network section on the far right of the home screen to browse the internet using the PSP's in-built internet browser. Or you can fire up that multi-player game you've been itching to try out and get going!

PSP wont play games


To play game on your memory stick you'll need Custom Firmware installed such as M33/OE on your PSP, else if you play a UMD. The last CFw Update is 3.71M33-3.

What is version on your PSP? (on PSP Menu, move across to the "Settings Menu". Scroll down, select to "System Settings" > "System Information" and you should see version of your PSP.)

Here's, how to install CFw Guides. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back a detail should you need additional information. ^_^
