(thought it was loading but isnt) then it will turn off automatically...
I tried this for a couple of times opening, loading, then black screen>closes>reopen the psp... but it shows the same result...
then i downloaded another game It was NTSC-U but my psp is from japan it wont play... uhm... those are the things ive done.. the memory stick isnt even full yet it still has 800 something MB... I left it alone for an hour because we had to attend christmas eve mass then when i returned it was laggimg!!
It is slow when it starts and it acts like slow... read slow and the music is fine... what do i do!! its only a week old pink psp 2000!! version 3.71

why does it lag!?! I didnt drop it! I checked for viruses using my pc when i connect! HELP!! PLEASE!

Re: Psp lags / delayed action

Are you running with custom firmware like M33 or HX?

If so, you can switch your psp off (not stand by), and hold R trigger when you switch it on, it should bring you to the recovery menu, where you can setup your XMB cpu speed and Game cpu speed, both set to default will be fine.

I really want radio on my psp 3000 I know that there is radio on my psp but I have to get on internet to listen the radio on the psp so which website can I download non internet and how do I download non...

You cannot get non-internet radio on your PSP. The reason you have to be on the internet is because the music is streaming to your PSP through the internet. Your PSP is constantly getting information from the internet to continue to play the song, and the next song, etc.

The only other option you have is to download music files [mp3s] to the PSPs memory card. If you get a big enough memory card, you can put thousands of songs on your PSP.

My psp keeps turning off

this happened to me and i think it happens when you play your psp while its charging too much, i got littlebigplanet and i love the game too much. ive been playing it 24/7 (not really) but ever since i started playing it while it was charging, it would do this.
