Most likely the button got disconnected from system. i would suggest just taking it into the shop, or trying to jog it back in by yourself.

How to connects yhe psp to the internet


  • 1

    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 to fix Volume issues in PSP Portable


    How to Fix a PSP Volume Button through Software
    Check to be sure that your PlayStation Portable's AVLS (Automatic Volume Limiter System) is turned off.
    Start your PSP without a game in it. Choose "Settings," then select "Sound Settings." If the AVLS option is "ON," turn it "OFF."
    Check to see that your memory stick is inserted properly if the sound still does not work. This often interferes with the volume control. Remove the memory stick and reinsert it.
    Perform a hard reset of your PSP if the volume still does not work. To do this, first unplug your PSP and remove any games or memory sticks. Then remove the battery from its cavity on the back. Press and hold any button for five seconds, then reinstall your battery.
    Move on to hardware solutions if none of the above options work
    How to Fix a PSP Volume Button through Hardware
    Remove your PlayStation Portable's battery pack, any games and memory sticks. Unplug it.
    Unscrew all five screws that hold the faceplate onto your PSP. The fifth is hard to locate, so find it just below the screen on the bottom edge.
    Clean the button heads underneath the volume buttons with a small cloth. You should also clean the Home button nearby as this often interferes with the volume button.
    Return the faceplate and screws, and test your PSP.

    Hi. Since you're in UMD Autoload mode, you need to configure that in the PSP Settings. To do this, turn off your PSP and remove your UMD. Now, turn it back on and it won't autoload your UMD since it wasn't there anymore.
    Now, go to "Settings" and scroll down to "System Settings" and press X. Scroll down again the selection until you see "UMD Auto-Start" and press X. At the right side will appear the options "ON" and "OFF". Select "OFF" and press O button several times to go back to main screen.
    Insert your UMD. Now, try playing games from Memory Stick. You may have to turn off your PSP and turn it on again to finally play homebrew...
    I hope this helps...

    PSP Not Connecting to PC via USB


    Hi rupasam,

    Based on your concern, I suggest trying the following steps:

    1. Before you plug it in make sure the PSP is in USB connect mode.
    --> Also make sure the Memory Stick PRO Duo has been formatted for PSP. If it's not this is how you do it:
    On the main menu, scroll all the way left to the "Settings" menu. Then select "System Settings." Then scroll to "Format Memory Stick" and press X.
    2. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable.
    3. Press the "home" button on the PSP
    --> at the lower left of the screen you can see the home button.
    4. Use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP.
    5. Press the "X" button, your PSP should display "USB Connection".
    6. Please wait until your computer tells you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:
    7. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.

    Hope it helps,

    Thank you for using FixYa.

    Memory card corrupted , cant retrieve saved games


    Try a "Reformat" or your memory card. here's how.
    I recommend that you do this every so often regardless, and particularly when you first buy a memory stick. Reformat it, on the Sony PSP. So that anything added by the memory stick manufacturer is removed, along with any hidden files you might have accidentally added.
    You can format any size Memory Stick Duo in the Sony PSP by doing this:
    1. Push the little HOME button on the bottom left of the face of the unit.
    2. Use the arrow keys to move to the SETTINGS area, then move the up and down keys until you get to System Settings.
    3. Once you are there, click on the "X" button and scroll up and down as needed to find Format Memory Stick. Click on "X" again to select that option.
    4. The Sony PSP will now confirm that you want to reformat the memory stick (which removes every file and game save thereon, of course): choose yes and it'll format in just a few seconds.
    Now you have a pristine new Memory Stick to work with and should have no problems with music, photos or other material you might wish to copy onto your PSP.
