Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

PSP won't read disks. Was involved in a yogurt incident, and I took the little silver guide bar out to clean it. (I put it back but now it looks funny and I Can't pinpoint why) Took it apart a little (not any of the internal stuff...just the front screen) and cleaned it gently. It works for the most part, but now it's not reading disks. I don't think any of the yogurt got into the inside due to the little door but I just don't know. Who the heck do I take it to to fix it? The disk is that's not it I think maybe it's the laser eye isn't how do I fix THAT?

    Your welcome! Hope it works out for you. You can also pick up a good sued one at EB games or Gamestop for around $99 i think. and its worth it if you get their no questions asked exchange warranty, that way, at the end of the warranty period, you can just take it back and say it doesnt work, they dont test it, they just give you a new one. (this was told to me by one of the employees there)

I need the instruction manual for a silver Crest Yogurt maker SJBG 20 A1. I have the recipe for ordinary yogurt but would like to be able to make greek yogurt Many Thanks

Once you have made ordinary yogurt, you need to put it into a muslin bag or special sieve and leave it alone until all the whey has drained out. Then you will have Greek yogurt.
