Bring it back to the store where you purchased it or just all the SONY COMPANY and they will replace it. DO NOOT TELL THEM THAT YOU DROPPED YOUR PSP AND A RIVER because they will not want to fix it or replace you psp console.

Ok,I dropped my PSP and evertime I turn it on,it goes to the "Sony Entertainment"thing,then goes to the moving wave background and stays that way.I have to remove the battery to turn it off.


Hi,

Pull out the battery again and before you put it back on press and hold the select button. While holding the select button, go ahead and turn it on. Still hold the select button say 45 seconds after switching on.

How can i get my internet up and going on my psp


First off, you need to get to the main menu from wherever you are on your PSP. You can do that by pressing the Home button, a tiny button just to the lower left of the screen.
Now you'll want to move left (pressing the "<" button) until you get to Settings, then down (pressing the "V" button) until you get to Network Settings:

select Infrastructure Mode

select new connection
and give a name to the connection

When you're done struggling to enter your selected name :-) move to the green "Enter" box and press the "X" button. Now you'll be ready for the big important step: a Network Scan:
psp-network-scan.pngso now it will scan for the available network and then show u the network select ur network psp-select-access-point.png
after selecting the name it will ask u for security settings select the security settings according to your router and if it asks enter the router security key and press next and then save settings now try and access the net on psp

The select button on psp


Hi Denzilsias

If you are electronically skilled, You can replace the Button strip. Get on Ebay, and buy you one. It is called the PSP button bar. Now to be honest with you, your problem may not be with the Button Bar at all, but the ABXY Board that the Button bar plugs into.
Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen, then on the next page, click on "Video Game Consoles" find a Repair shop that has experience working on PSP's. They will put the right part in.
