Re: 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.

My son's psp game is downloaded..the problem is it goes slowmotion every game he play.... what will we do?

Hi there.
Try increasing the PSP's "CPU Clock Game" by doing this;
1. In the main screen, press "SELECT" button and XMB or VSH Menu shows up 2. Scroll down to "CPU Clock Game" which is usually second from top 3. Press "Arrow Right" until the value on the right shows 333/166 (300/150 will also do).
I hope this solves your (and your son's) problem...

Xbox live

Make sure that you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription first,
Second You won't both be able to play at the same time enless it is a game that provides guest support(and in some games WITH) guest support you cannot play anything ranked online. To sign in a game with Guest support hit the guide button on the second controller select choose profile and scroll down, if u see "Guest" as a profile and you did not create it, then that game has guest support, and you can both play.

If u are just trying to let him play alone then you have to sign him in how you would normally

Unknown pin number

To do this, you can either install a custom firmware or try to upgrade it with a higher version original firmware. I think after the installation the parental control pass word will be reset.

The play game icon not showing on his PSP

Is there a disc in the drive? If so, it sounds like your UMD drive (or disc) is damaged. Does it only happen with one game or with all your son's games?

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.
