Where can i buy a low price sony psp.

You have a few options depending on how much you want to spend. I'll start with the safest means and degress:

1) EB Games or GameStop.

They check each system as they come in for errors/bugs and determine if they're suitable to sell. Each used system comes with a 30 day waranty so that if ANYTHING is wrong with it, no questions asked, they'll refund your money.

2) Local video game stores.

Yes, they are tiny and seem a little shady; but they cannot, by law, sell you a product that doesn't work properly. Most also offer some kind of waranty with their systems.

3) Craigslist

Not the best option, but here you can physically see the item and if the owner lets you, test it before you buy it. Sometimes in this case you'll get a few free games with it. Think of it this way: would you rather spend 299 on a brand new one and $30-$50 per game, or would you spend $100 on a used one and get a few games with it?

4) Ebay

Personally, I hate Ebay but I've known some people to score massive savings on next-to-perfect items; it's worth a shot.

Let me know how it works out for you!

My psp screen turns colors

The lcd screen needs to be replaced. This is one screen that I found thru amazon, the cost is relatively low, definitely less then $50 so its not to bad and as long as you know how to get into the psp then you can replace the screen:

Please stop misleading people.


The psp firmware are universal which means it comes with english built in as well. to do this, under the xmb interface (where you just switch on your psp), move to the very left, find something like system setting, then find display language, will be allow you to set to english interface, I am sorry but I am not at french either.

For instructions and manuals, I can give you link which sony provides, come with english manuals. Links as below.

Power problems

Hi Gohan102,


Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....

Battery Or Charging Problem.

Have you updated your firmware recently? Check your PSP to make sure there aren't any loose connections. If you're comfortable with it, you could open it up and make sure the plug for the charger didn't come loose somewhere. It may just need a touch of solder to put it back into place.
