Try taking off the faceplate and replacing the buttons. to do this, remove all the black screws out of the back, and the silver on the bottom. take the battery out, under there is two more black screws, one is hidden under the warranty sticker tho so if its still under warranty, i recomend you take it in. if not, rip the sticker off and take out the screws. the face plate will just pop off, leaving you free to re-adjust the buttons or replace them.

You need to open up your PSP (But it will void the warranty!) remove the circle button and then make sure there is no dirt under it, then replace it back. It is not that hard to open a PSP, you can find many videos on how to do it.

My start/select button act as though i am pressing them consistantly but obviously i am not. Also, when ever i am in a game and i press my home button, it seems to be stuck on NO. I have reason to believe...

Hi omar199562,
Do a system restore by going to SETTINGS (farthest to the left of your main menu)-> SYSTEM SETTINGS -> RESTORE DEFAULT SETTINGS. If this does not fix the problem, you may need to open the face plate of your unit to check for any lodged -in particles or any defects associated with your PSP's HOME/START button bar. I hope the system restore fixes the problem so that you dont have to go to the hassle of dissembling your PSP. By the way, if the unit is still under warranty, it will be best for you to not do anything and let the technicians fix it for you because tinkering with your PSP may void the warranty. All the best to you my fellow PSP enthusiast.

When i press the home button oy psp, i cant use the directional bons to click yes so that i may quit the game i'm playing. and sometimes the "o" button seems to be pressed while i'm...

The problem, as you describe, is exactly that! One of your buttons is stuck down in the pressed position. If you press Home and the screen comes up asking you if you want to quit and a button is already pressed down, you will not be able to press X to confirm yes or no.

You didn't specify which PSP you have, 1001, 2001, or 3001, but the following website sells the part you need to fix this issue. They also perform repairs if you're not comfortable doing it yourself. It's a pretty cheap and straightforward part to replace:

My son's psp game is downloaded..the problem is it goes slowmotion every game he play.... what will we do?

Hi there.
Try increasing the PSP's "CPU Clock Game" by doing this;
1. In the main screen, press "SELECT" button and XMB or VSH Menu shows up 2. Scroll down to "CPU Clock Game" which is usually second from top 3. Press "Arrow Right" until the value on the right shows 333/166 (300/150 will also do).
I hope this solves your (and your son's) problem...

I have to turm the oven off at the braker box. it comes on by itself. when I turn it on to cook it will not stay on gos off and beeps. Shows C7 or F7

This is usually a keypad stuck key error, usually caused by a bad keypad or sometimes caused by your control board.
F7 usually means a stuck key on the keypad. I've also seen it caused by a greasey buildup on the keypad connector into the control board. Try pressing each button on the keypad followed by cancel. See if the buttons are registering with the control - should get a beep or some function (execpt up/down buttons need a cook or time function enabled first). If one of the buttons seems inoperative it may be stuck, in which case you probably need a new keypad.
Best Regards, Diana

My son that is 5 has a psp and it was working great He was game sharing with his cousin and now under games it dont have the umb option and will not play the games what do i need to do?


Try the following procedure to format the unit.
Step 1:

Remove the battery from the left side of the PSP while it is still on. The unit will power down instantly. Wait ten seconds and then replace the battery.

Step 2:
Press both clear shoulder buttons at the top of the PSP and keep them held while the PSP reboots. A "Recovery" mode will be initiated.

Step 3:
Press down on the control pad to locate a "recovery" folder. This will contain all of your PSP content, including games, music, videos and podcasts that are saved on the device. Highlight this folder and press the "X" button to begin reinstalling your content.

Thank you !!

No screen

The backlight is probably gone. Just had same problem on my sons one. I purchased a replacement off ebay seems a simple enough job to do if you are sort of tech minded.
