I just have found those advices for you . they are for cell phones but they must work with your PSP.

1:Remove the battery immediately. This reduces the risk of a short circuit. Place the battery in a windowsill inside or outside. Do not put it near a heat source.

Dry your phone with an absorbent cloth.

Remove all the screws from your phone.

Carefully pry your faceplate off your phone with the flat edge and remove the rubber number pad.

Dry the inside of your phone with a cotton swab to be sure you get all the liquid from the crevices.

Dry your phone with a blow dryer on medium at a distance of 3-5 inches for approximately ninety minutes.

Shake your phone just to be sure there is no water remaining.

Replace rubber number pad and faceplate on your phone.

Replace all screws.

Replace the battery in your phone. If possible, you may want to buy a new a battery to ensure against acid leakage.

or try this advice :

This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and digital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.

This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

How can i fix my PSP when it got wet

Depending on how significant the water damage is, you may be able to fix this problem rather simply.

1) Open the disc tray
2) Remove cover and battery
3) Bury all components in a bowl of DRY rice overnight
4) Reassemble the PSP

The rice will have absorbed most of the water. This is a good first thing to do to ANY electronics which may have water damage. If this does not fix the PSP, it may have to be sent back to the manufacturer for repairs.

My little sister accidentally put water all over my PSP and now it won't work this happened like 5 months ago. What do I do?

I would open it and "clean" it, let it air dry then put it back together.

It could be the battery.

I accidentally spilled water on my psp and when I tested to see if it still works, my home button doesn't work any more and my d-pad goes haywire. Is there some way to make it normal again?

i also had this problem just take the two screws from the back of the psp and take the hidden psp screw it is located in the battery compartment and a sticker is there (you will void the warranty ok)and after that check if there is any water in there and after that tighten the screws once more tightly, you can also go to the local gamestore they will do it for you(there is risk that you will will break your psp if you do it,but when they do it no risk)

Ok here the problem my mom dropped her psp in the toliet then tryed to see if it still worked. it started up but wouldnt play games and after a bit it wouldnt turn on at all. its been about three month...

It's water damaged. It's very difficult, if not impossible, to fixed water damaged electronics. If you drop something in the water, you're supposed to rinse it off with distilled water and let it dry completely. If you turn it on while it's still wet, it will damage it permanently.

My psp was accidentally put in the washing machine by my 2 year old. any help would be welcome. If I dried it out on a radiator or in airing cupboard, will it work again or is that the end of it. my 6 year...

not likely if it was in for a full wash cycle. lost a cell phone that way once. it was very clean, however.

give this a shot, though. put it over a vent and turn on the heat and let it sit for a few hours. make sure the unit is off (better yet, take out the battery). that should get out all of the moisture. but if there is water damage (short circuits, corrosion), you're out of luck.

good luck.

When im playing a game the psp shutsoff what do i do

Make sure the battery is charged or connect the AC adapter. Also, the power switch is located where its easy to switch off accidentally - why not put some sticky tape over it to prevent accidental switch off when playing?
