Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

PSP-1001 doesn't power on at all, it freezes when It does!

I got this PSP fat-1001. The deal is that the damn thing freezes on me after it turns, and there's times when it doesn't wanna turn on at all! I checked the inside part of where the battery should go, and looked at the small sticker incase of moisture, but the sticker is red/white, so Im guessin it's fine. But, I got the PSP without a UMD, No Battery. It for sure doesn't read disc's (already tried that), tried re-setting (nothin). Oh, and to top it off, stupid Analog stick is busted, how do I know? Cause, when I tried usin it while I was on the net (for about 5mins before it froze) it wouldn't move what so ever. So if anyone has any good advice or tech support, or juss help in general, I'd appreciate it. I dont mind opening the thing up, the warranty is gone anyway.lol

    Okay, so basically without the hardware inside of it being fixed, there isn't much I can do to fix it, correct? The analog stick I can do today, but hardware fixer-uppers sounds complicated. In other words, its pointless? Or is there still some hope for this dying PSP fat of mine?

    I have a PSP slim (sliver) and it just will not do anything at all. We have tried to use someone elses battery and nothing and also someone elses charger and nothing. It just will not turn on at all. What do I do?

    I am having the same problem, my psp 1001 will do nothing. I am the original owner of the unit, it has never been drooped or anythignlike that. It looks brand new, just has not been chrged or used for a very long time, and now when you plug it in the wall charger, nothing happens. No orange lite, nothing

The freezing up seems to be a hardware issue, which usually cannot be fixed because of the complexity of the mainboard. (Same happened to my old one...)as for the analog stick, the contacts are probably loose, and may need to be cleaned. If you do try to fix it on your own, the ebay way, make sure you open the screws by pressing tightly and wiggling slightly untill it losens. Otherwise you will strip the screws.

Black screen malfunction!!??Help!!!!


it sounds like you have bricked your psp there are ways around this but its to do with changing settings and adding a recovery program to your psp (in other words hacking) but i aint the expert on this but if you search it up on youtube you can find some great videos that people have uploaded with the same problem as you and they show you how to get around your problem, im stuck with a problem with a region code not been correct and i dont know if i need to use the recovery program to help me through it.
