Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

PSP Screen wont Come on, But sound and backlight does, WTF HELP!!!

Ok, so the Sinopsis is this: We were out for dinner when my PSP Fell out of my pocket, maybe 2 feet, and WHAM! Everyone looked at me, so I picked it up, put it back together (The Battery, Memery Stick, and Battery Cover all came out, so did the Game) And turned it on.

Blank Screen.

The Back light turns on, So does the sound. At first I thought something was broken inside, so I unscrewed it and peeked inside. Nothing. And I didnt HEAR Anything when it was together Either, SO I think its NOT The inside.

The next thing I realized is that the LCD Screen (The thing that wont turn on) IS NOT CRACKED Or Scratched or anything.

Is there A Button or setting that Turns the Screen off? My father has a PSP So I could use his to navigate mine to certain settings, and all the buttons work too.

This is a NEW StarWars WHITE Darth Vader Eddition PSP, and a week later its broken.

Christmas is in 3 Days, and I just found Out I am getting some games for it eventhough I didnt ask for any (I wonder why...) and I'll feel really guilty if I have to tell my Dad, because this happened almost a Month ago.

I didnt do anything about it cus I thought Maybe it had overheated or something, so someone, PLEASE Help me, I am seriously BEGGING You to help, or ill have ot go to my dad and tell him its broken

3 Friends went for dinner. the bill was $50. As none of them had change, they put together $20 each. The waitor got $10 back. They left $4 as waitor's tip and divided the remaining $6 amongst themselve...

Paid $20-00 each.
The meal cost $16-66 each = total of $50-00
The tip cost $1-33 each = total of $54-00
Add Change $2- each = total $60-00

Paid $20-00. Cost of dinner for each friend is not $18-00, it is $16-66. Cost of dinner including tip is $18-00 each. $18-00 x 3 = $54-00. Then the question adds $4-00 as a tip. This has already been accounted for in the $18-00. Plus the $6-00 change =$60-00.

For some reason the question tricks/confuses the brain. You have to work backwards from $60-00. Take away $6-00 in change and it's $54-00. This divided by 3 = $18-00 which is what everyone paid for dinner and the tip. Should be straightforward but in reality it's not.

Psp keeps saying no access point detected when I have wireless internet 3 feet away


Make sure your wifi is switched on, on your Psp. It's the little switch on the left hand side of the psp above your memory card slot.

Also check your router settings to make sure your ssid is visible.
If thats ok you may be running an old firmware on your psp which will only work on wep encrypted wifi connections.
Another point to remember is that the Psp will only connect to a network running on 802.11 b. It will not connect to an 'N' or 'G' enabled router. Saying that it will pick up and show a 'G' network it will not allow you to connect though.

A small sock fell into the dryer lint trap. How can I get it out?\r\nThank you! Jan

You can try using a metal hanger to hook it and pull it out, but be sure to unplug the dryer before you try. There is also a small pick-up tool about 2 feet long you can buy at hardware stores for picking up small items in tight places. Good luck fishing!

Well, 4 feets a long way for a playstation, it would be if you were that size anyways. it sounds like your playstation is dead, or maybe just the drives ability to read cd's well, so get a new ps off ebay or go to your nearest game traders (or somewhere they fix playstations). on the otherhand, get an xbox 360

My psp won't turn on

Open the Psp Using the instructions on my web page and Check to see if any cable has been pulled out. My Psp fell many times yes, one day it fell and it kindof opened a little bit. So the On/off button was really loose and it wouldnt turn on, I later adjusted the on/off button and i also found out about a loose cable on the inside... If the tutorial is not on the website I plan on adding one maybe by night time. I will be adding some tutorials though the site is fairly new, or make a request and I could maybe go through it with you on msn or aim or yahoo.
