Try pressing the START+ L + R to see if it resets the game.

If it does not, your PSP may be Semi-Bricked. Write me back if your PSP is Semi-bricked and needs to be restored.

    Hi Darklord09,

    Semi-Bricked means that something has currupted some of the firmware that makes your PSP function. The PSP firmware is not completely corrupted or erased and that is why you can see it flash up the game once in a while.

    I have the hardware to restore your firmware to full function. It is a version of Pandoras Battery and will put the PSP into service mode, then load in a new firmware. You can run custom firmware and play games from a memory stick if you decide on custom firmware called CFW. If you want it to be original and continue with normal operation, that is called Original Firmware or OFW.

    My repair shop is listed in the Repair directory and you can get there by clicking on Repair Directory at the bottom of this screen. Then on the directory choose "Video Game Consoles". My shop is listed in the top 3 or 4 for servicing the USA. We can do this for $24 including return shipping. Thank you for the vote.

Is psp2004pb can play games in memory stick?

psp can only play games using the UMD drive, you can only play game demos using the memory stick.
Upgrade your psp firmware version to 5.00, it adds playstation store to the psp where you can buy and download full games onto your psp, all you need to do is create an account using the playstation store on your psp if you upgrade it to 5.00.

Use this link to help you upgrade you psp to 5.00
don't forget to download psp media manager 3.00 on your pc.
use this link for psp media manager.

Good Luck. if you hacve questions write back.
