My psp wont turn on the i will force the powed button to see green light when its done the welcome message for the psp will come out and then it shut down ...sometimes the power button wont function whats...


Hi,

Take out the battery and put it back in after 30 seconds, or takingout the battery all together and just running off the AC power adapter, if boththese methods fail, then it is something wrong with the inner controls of yourPSP. Don't try and take out the battery while having your AC still plugged in.
Hope this helps, if you need any further assistance it would be better coming to chat here.

How to restore default settings


Hello :

  1. Remove the battery from the left side of the PSP while it is still on. The unit will power down instantly. Wait ten seconds and then replace the battery.
  2. Press both clear shoulder buttons at the top of the PSP and keep them held while the PSP reboots. A "Recovery" mode will be initiated.
  3. Press down on the control pad to locate a "recovery" folder. This will contain all of your PSP content, including games, music, videos and podcasts that are saved on the device. Highlight this folder and press the "X" button to begin reinstalling your content.

Warnings
  • If you would like to reset your PSP while it is working normally, you can do so by going to the Settings menu and selecting "System Reset." This will get rid of all your content and restore the PSP to factory settings (and subsequently remove all of your content.)

Or try this for hard resetting :

  1. Locate your Power button on your PSP. Push the power button up for 10 seconds.
  2. The PSP will and should shut off. Leave the PSP off for 30 seconds.
  3. Turn your PSP back on by flicking the power button up very quickly. If it doesn't turn on, try pushing the power button forward very quickly again. (sometimes you have to do it 2-3 times)
  4. Your PSP should be working now. If not, then you may have a firmware problem.
Warning:
  • Do not have your PSP plugged into a power supply.
  • If your PSP doesn't turn off after 10 seconds (of power button being help up) then remove your battery and wait 30 seconds, and then replace .

Cant turn game off it has box do you want to quit game yes or no box its stuck on no box Its a Sony PSP player


If it's stuck on No, there is a problem with one of your buttons. Either R, L, or one of the buttons along the home/start/select strip is stuck down. The best way to check this is to get a game, like daxter, that uses all of these functions. Load it up, start a new game, and test your buttons 1 by 1.

This occurs sometimes when you get either dust or some other substance built up inside of the system under the button. If you spilled some sort of liquid on it that would definitely cause it.

Either way, you can open the system up and clean off the dust or sticky substance, but I would not recommend doing it yourself unless you are familiar with these devices. It is best to take it to a local computer or gaming console repair shop. I am sure they would not charge you much to fix it. If you feel that you would like to try it yourself then here is a link that will show you step-by-step(with pictures) how to take the system apart.

if its M33 custom firmware, goto the Recovery menu. (power it off fully. turn it on, and hold the R button until it appears.)

goto Advanced > Advanced configuration > and enable Execute Boot.bin in UMB/ISO

save that setting, exit out, and now test your game.

i get that same error sometimes. changing that toggled setting fixes it for me. but this only works on M33 custom firmware unfortunately.

downloading and installing custom firmware is another whole post worth though.

Psp wont power off


Try doing a hard reset by holding the power switch in the up position for around ten seconds. This will then shut off the PSP. You may then need to flick the power button either once or twice for the device to come back on. after a hard-reset, I always have to press the power on button twice to get the PSP to fire up.
