Re: owners manual

Actually, there is an instructions manual ON the PSP! You need a wireless internet connection though... In the main menu on the PSP, there should be an icon that looks like a question mark that says on the side, "Online Instruction Manuals". (It's located under "Network".)

If you have a router in your house (Wireless internet connection) then you should be able to connect to it with your PSP.

Once you click on the icon, the PSP will say "You must create a network connection to continue." Press X to continue. Now it will give you a few options to get an internet connection. Before you go any further, make sure your WLAN switch is on. (It's located at the top to the left on the PSP.) next, click "Scan" at the top of the menu. The PSP will now scan for internet connections. It will give you a list of internet connections that it found. Yours should be in there. After clicking on your internet connection, it will say "SSID" and have your connection name displayed underneath it. Ignore this step and press right. Now it will say "WLAN Security Setting" and will have a list of security settings. If your internet does not have any security, press "None". It will now say "Address Settings". Press "Easy". Now you can name it. You don't have to, of course, but you can by clicking X to edit. It will show you your settings list. This is just to make sure that everything is correct. Press right to continue than press X to save settings. It will bring you back to the beginning with your internet connection name highlighted. Click on it and it will connect to your connection and load the page.

This online instructions manual is much better than the one that came with your PSP as it is kept up-to-date with the latest version of the PSP. If you have any questions, please ask! ^-^

My son has a psp and I have bought him new games but the psp is asking for a four digit password, I dont remember setting up a password, can you help please

Have you tried simple answers like 1111, or 1234, etc? If so, I believe you can reset the system settings in Settings>System Settings>Reformat System Settings, or something or other.

Used psp wont play games?

If the PSP that you bought is pre-owned... then..

..bring it back to 'Gamestop' & tell them truthfully that the PSP you bought doesn't play UMDs.

.. maybe there're problem's with the UMDs? Are they pre-owned?

If the PSP is brand new when you bought it, you can claim for FREE repairs, or perhaps a replacement from SONY! Mostly warrantys are just 1yr period, so you better 'do what you have to do' before Christmas!

When you insert a UMD into the PSP, then what happens? What appears on the screen?

- Do you hear the UMD drive spinning for quite awhile, but not loading up under the Game column?

Green light comes on but nothing else turns on

I'll give you the quick story of what they did. They "bricked" the PSP. This is a term used by all PSP hackers. When you try to hack the system so you can play pirated games on the system, you will occasionally get an error that causes the system to be "bricked". They use the word "brick" because once it happens, the PSP becomes as fun as a brick. You really can't do much about it. Your best bet is to call Sony and see what they can do for you. If you know anyone else that knows what they're doing with PSPs, you could always ask them to fix it for you, but Sony would be the easiest. They won't do it for free, but they will fix it for you. 1-800-345-SONY
