PSP for Xmas

My son got a PSP for Xmas, he is not one to break things. It doesn't look broken however when you turn it on like we did this morning it just keeps saying "loading" in the right lower corner and does nothing. Also I was able to get it to a screen that looks more like a computer screen with a bunch of different symbols like a house and such.

No anything??

This is officially called XMB, stands for Cross Media Bar, basically it's the operating interface for the psp, you can change settings, and play music video games surf internet ect.

My son just got a new PSP to replace his old one which got broken. He is trying to log onto his account but it keeps telling him that the password is invalid. He was just using this information this...


Couple of things you need to check:
1. Check for spellings
2. Check if the "CAPS" key is activated.

Please let me know if it works.

If it odes not let me know how are you trying to logi, where are you trying to login, where do you get the error, when was the last time you logged on to the account.

Please provide as much information as you can

Sony PSP wont play umd

Same with my PSP. My son accidentally broken a spring sensor for the UMD when you close the UMD cover of the PSP. That's why the drive doesn't recognize if there's a UMD. Sony Service Center here in the Philippines doesn't have a replacement part for this.
