Re: region 1 movies on british PSP

Oh yes, there is. You have to install a custom firmware on your psp, so you can use the "fake region" options to play movie regardless of regions. 

It's not too difficult actually, but you need some basic knowledge about it. I am giving you the links to show you how to downgrade/ install custom firmware onto your psp. Maybe you can give a try. Feel free to ask me any questions about that.

My psp will not play and movies or play games screen is dark

have you tried adjusting the brightness of the screen on your psp by using the display button to toggle if it is dark or light? if so the problem is either coming from your lens or the cds you are trying to play.
playstation console usually have regional codes that determines the kind of cds they play. for example a region 2 psp might not play a region 1 cd and so on. what you do is to check the region of your psp by reading through the manual and you would see the regional cds it accepts.
also make sure the cds are in good condition as that could also affect the game. if all the above refuses to work, it could be that you need a software update which you can do by going through your manual too. if all refuses, your lens is probably bad and needs replacement.
hope this helped you? please rate

Movies wont play because of region

this is probably because the movies and/or the psp were not bought (or downloaded) in the same place. try changing your psp location settings if you can.

I have a psp go to play a movie and it says region code not correct but it plays other movies what does that mean

Every PSP is tied to a certain region for movies just like DVD player or bluray players. So if you have a US PSP you will not be able to play Euro or Japanese movies. Same goes for all.

There are tricks to getting around this but it involves changing things in you PSP's software and will void your warranty.

How can i change the regio code on my psp

Depending on what country your system is made in it will have a certain region code. Most movies are also region coded and if those region codes do not match then you cannot play that movie. You cannot change the region code on any system unless it is opened up and modified

Region codes

PSP is a region free device that it is capable of playing media purchased anywhere in the world. However, the decision to make games and movies region specific is made by the publisher of each title and as a result some Universal Media Discs may not work on a PSP purchased in a different country.
Please ensure that you check each piece of software and UMD films for compatibility with your PSP before purchase.

PSP region code

Yes, US movies are region 1 and China and Southeast Asian markets are region 3. This is supposedly to keep piracy low but considering you can't even burn UMDs yet that's kind of ridiculous. Go to
to find a mpeg4 converter for UMDs or else you could get a new region 1 drive and flashing your bios. There's talk in the air about Sony releasing it's movies all regions from here on out due to this problem.
