Go to control panel, Add hardware and continue the setup(first connect the PSP to the comp)if they ask whether the the hardware is connected? Say yes... and if this doesn't work try (if you got a cd with the PSP) to install the software if you have one...

Hello fellow gamer :)

It sounds like your PSP may be damaged or the battery is not taking a full charge. If possible, can you try using an alternate battery? If this does not work, you may want to contact Sony for technical assistance.

I have seen PSP updates brick a PSP before and it has to be reset or fixed by Sony.

If it is under warranty I recommend calling them.

PSP Troubles - unknown device


Hi,

This is what you should do;

1. Restore your psp to factory setting.

2. If this does not solve the problem, then i guess you'll have to change the psp battery.

This should resolve the problem that you are facing with the psp right now.

Good Luck.
