    I continually get an error message saying my wlan is not turned on. How I turn it on and activate it. It has been making me nuts. This is a newer psp and it doesn't have the switch that the earlier versions had, why not? it would probably make life using the psp much more enjoyable and not drive people crazy with frustration. I have bought 6 of these units 2 earlier and heavier ones and 4 of the newer plastic light weight ones. Please email me with specific directions on how to turn the wlan on! at

    or have a tech call me at 702-353-3325

    I look foward to a quick response to this problem as I have spent thousands on units and games for my kids and I. Thanks

Check your PSP firmware revision, apparently some firmware revisions from 3.60 - 3.73 can cause this issue. Most people that experienced it reported that updating to firmware revision 3.8 resolved the issue completely. 3.9 is available now and should work as well. Download and instructions here:

Internal error 00000001

This error is the error when no wireless network were found to connect. Its nothing to worry about - just make sure you are close to a Wi-Fi hotspot for something to connect to.

That probably means that your just in an area that doesnt have a good wi-fi connection, or your trying to connect to an access point that you set up in another location.

When scanning it says "an internal erro occured. (00000001)"

it means that you are no where near a wireless access point or hotspot. If you have wireless, make sure its the right kind.
