I always play psp and sometimes the game is just hang like that. after that my psp just shutdown automatic.


That's normal. Sometimes the games are buggy and hang the PSP. When the PSP OS detects that situation, it shuts down or restart the PSP.

You can try updating the firmware but the problem is with the games.

PSP won't turn on


You can try a hard reset. Do this hold the power switch in the upward position for over 10 seconds. This will cause the machine to reboot. Leave it alone for a few minutes then try switching it back on. You may have to flick the switch on twice to start her up again. If it still has a hard time try changing the battery for the one in your sons machine. MAKE SURE that all apps etc are closed on the PSP first and do the hard reset BEFORE you remove the battery on BOTH machines. Ensure PSP is OFF before removing battery. It is possible the battery has been overcharged or just given up. If the console operates with the other battery you know you need get a fresh one. Consider getting a high power one for extended life. Let us know how you get on. May have more info for you.

My PSP will only turn on without a disc in it then if I insert a disc and try and run it it will just turn off. Also I've tried running a small game from the memory stick but again the PSP will just turn...


Try hooking up just the ac adapter to the psp without the battery hooked up to it.

If the psp turns on then try to load a disc, if it doesn't shut down then the battery is bad, if it still shuts down then that means the main board is bad cause it can't handle the power coming from the umd drive.

PSP won't play any games


the reason the umd wont load is because someone shut the psp off when the game was loading. so whoever did that just messed up your psp. i know cause someone did it to mine now i have to get it fixed or buy a new one. and to get the psp fixed its not guna be cheap.
