How to connects yhe psp to the internet

    On the lower left-hand side of your PSP, you will notice a little silver slider. Slide the switch up and this will turn on the WiFi feature on the PSP. Of course, you do need a home WiFi setup for this to work. Your battery also needs to be full. Even if your battery is low and your unit is plugged in to an outlet, the firmware upgrade may not work.

  • 2

    With a fully charged device, go to your PSP's home screen and choose "Network Update."

  • 3

    This screen will ask you for your WLAN settings. Choose "Scan" and let the PSP detect the network automatically. Choose the right one and keep all of your settings in the default stage. Press the "X" button and the PSP will save the configuration as your new access profile.

  • 4

    Choose it again and when your PSP connects to the network, and if there is an update available, you will automaically see the following message: "Network Update has found a later version. To download, insert a Memory Stick with at least 14MB of free space and press the X button."

  • 5

    Press the "X" button and you should see the message: "Downloading." IMPORTANT - Do not turn off your PSP or remove the memory card during this time!

  • 6

    When the download is finished, you will see the following message: "Download completed. The update is now available on your Memory Stick. To install now, press the x button. To install later, go to [Game]." Press the "X" button to install the new firmware. You may see a few other screens detailing new features to be included in the upgrade, but eventually you will see "Installing."

  • 7

    During the installation, again, do not turn it off or remove the memory card. Once installation is finished, the PSP will tell you to press "X" to restart the PSP. When it powers back up, the new firmware will be in place

    How do I update my psp console?


    If you have internet on your psp goto the left all the way and then go all the way up and there should be a update icon in your settings icon.

    If this does not work you can download the update via sony's website and put it onto you memory card via usb from the computer and then update that way.

    How to Update PSP to Firmware Ver 6.20

    It's easy to update/upgrade the Playstation Portable (PSP) 3000 system software to firmware version 6.20. There are two ways to do a PSP 6.20update - regular file download and network update. We did an update on our pink PSP 3000 using the network update procedure since our place has wifi.
    Why did we choose network update in updating our PSP firmware to ver 6.20? It's much simpler. Here is a quick tutorial on how to carry out PSP 6.20 update using Network Update (Method 1):
    1. Go to Network Settings to configure your PSP WLAN by setting up an access point.
    2. Under Network Settings, it would be best to choose Automatic to simplify the process. Your PSP console will search for any wireless network available nearby.
    3. To Update System Software to the latest 6.20 firmware version, Go to Network Update. Be sure your battery is full because the update will fail if you turn off you PSP console or if the unit shuts down due to lack of battery power.
    Method 2: Download File To Update PSP 6.20 Firmware Using a PC. If you prefer to update your console using the download method, here are the simple steps in doing this:

    Psp was turned off while downloading the latest update, It won't turn on.


    Here's an article which identifies your problem. Hope it helps:

    "Oh, do I have bad news for you. I have heard from many people that have unplugged their PSP accidentally during an update, got bored during the slow download, or had some other glitch interrupt a network update or processing a downloaded update just to end up with a completely dead Sony PSP device.The only advice I can offer you and other people in this situation is to call Sony and talk to them about how lame it is that you can kill your expensive Playstation Portable device by a relatively random or unlucky event during a firmware update. It seems to me - though I'm definitely not a part of Sony and cannot speak with any authority here - that Sony should replace PSPs that are killed during a failed firmware update. I don't know if they do, but they should.
    Which makes me think: if you have had this experience and call Sony about your dead PSP, please leave a note here to tell us who you called, what your experience was like and how it turned out. That is, did they make good on the problem or did they just say "ah, bummer, dude." and hang up?
    I can't emphasize enough how important it is to:
    • plug your PSP into the wall during the entire firmware upgrade process, and
    • don't interrupt it during a download, even if it's taking a long time
    lest you "brick" or otherwise kill your unit.
    Also note that you can likely minimize the problem of slow or stalled downloads by actually downloading the firmware update package on your PC or Mac. In that situation nothing bad will happen if you kill the download halfway. Then all you have to do is copy the downloaded firmware package onto your Sony PSP and run it. Elapsed time once you've finished the download? Just a few minutes. Much less risk."

    Why does my firmware update on my psp is shown as "corrupted data" when you turn on the system?


    The update can't be read by the PSP.

    Did you download it yourself? Or was it included on a game?

    If you downloaded it yourself, try the download again.
    If it was on a game disc, the PSP could be having problems reading the part of the disc that contains the update.

    Won't turn on after i tried to update for GOW2


    You accidently bricked your PSP when you terminated the firmware update. When a Firmware update begins it formats the memory location prior to beginning the flash. If you interupt the flash or anything after the flash program erases the firmware memory location, the PSP will not be able to boot.
    Send your PSP to Playstationclinic.com and they will restore it for a good price.
