Try doing a hard reset. A lot of electrical devices have a small reset button you will need to press this button using a toothpick or pin, and hold it in for 10-30 seconds. If you do not have this option, try removing the battery for 10 seconds and then putting them back in. If this does not help you will either have to contact Sony support to see if it is under warranty for repairs, or contact someone local to you that can fix gaming systems. Just do a Google search to find local gaming repairmen. Let me know if you have any questions.
You can try a hard reset. Do this hold the power switch in the upward position for over 10 seconds. This will cause the machine to reboot. Leave it alone for a few minutes then try switching it back on. You may have to flick the switch on twice to start her up again.
If it still has a hard time try changing the battery for the one in your sons machine.
MAKE SURE that all apps etc are closed on the PSP first and do the hard reset BEFORE you remove the battery on BOTH machines. Ensure PSP is OFF before removing battery. It is possible the battery has been overcharged or just given up. If the console operates with the other battery you know you need get a fresh one. Consider getting a high power one for extended life.
Let us know how you get on. May have more info for you.
second hand wii's will sometimes have a pin number that was established
be the previous owener. this in fact is the parental controls, i bought
on like this once and did not know the previous owner to get the pin
number. I had to call nintendo and they were able to reset it for me.
you can contact them here. http://www.nintendoservicecentre.co.uk/contact-us
Ok, when you go to enter the pin number, click "I Forgot" twice. After that, you'll see some random numbers. Write it down or something. Remember that number. Then, go to this website: http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp Enter the number in the Confirmation Number box. Then, enter the date in the second box. Click Get Reset Code. Remember that number. Then, when you go to enter the pin number, enter the number the website gave you. The rest is self-explanatory.
Turn on you PSP and go to the System Settings menu then scroll down to "Restore Default Settings". Press the X button (other PSP are O button) to restore the default setting. The password should then
be 0000 or 9999.
The other solution is to go over to
http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and from here, you can provide
the confirmation number on your DSi, and get your reset code. Unlike
the 1-800-255-3700 solution, this one is available 24/7.
Despite it saying Wii Parental control reset tool, it also applies to DSi as well.
The first check the version you are running on psp, >> Go
to the PSP Menu and move across to the
"Settings Menu". Scroll down, select to "System Settings" >>
"System Information" and you should see version of your PSP. If the UMD
has a high version than ur console, u need to update ur psp.
