The interior of the system has become unusually hot. Check whether the system is being used in a hot location or whether the vents are blocked. Stop using the system and leave it unused until it cools down. Continuing to use the system in the above condition will cause it to stop functioning.

Likely a worn out or defective battery. If the unit is new, get Sony to replace it. If it's somewhat old you may have to buy a new one.

How to upload a psp game

Hi If you would like to help out other people by giving a little something. It is very easy to upload games to Note: Don't do this if you don't know how-to use homebrew from the first place...
Here is my guide
What you need PlayStation Portable v. 1.50 Memory Card 512MB 1GB 2GB. Game to rip Burnout Syphon Filter etc Internet Connection DSL Cable. USB Cable or USB to Mini-B.
1. Insert the UMD and the memory card into the PSP. 2. Go to the Game Section, and choose Fast Loader v.7. 3. When started select Dump Inserted UMD. Note: This will take a long time; 10-15 min. 4. Once done, exit out, and go hook up your PSP to your computer. USB Mode. 5. Go to My Computer then Removable Device. 6. Inside that go to ISO you will see My Latest ISO.iso. 7. Take that and move it to your Desktop. Note: May take 8-15 min. Random. 8. Right click and choose Archive. Natoe: May take 20-25 min. 9. Open up My Computer and in the top bar go to Tools, then Folder Options. 10. Click the tab that says View, then in the middle of that list uncheck Hide File Ext... 11. Then go back to your Desktop and right click the file. And choose Rename, rename to what ever you want; sistersParty.rar. Note: Make sure nobody can figure out it is a ISO; SistersParty.rar 12. Then after you type in what you would like to call it. Add .PSP to it; ex. sistersParty.PSP. 13. Now uploading time, this may be the longest thing of all; open up your web browser and type in 14. Locate the Game, and hit upload. Note: Don't fill in any other field. 15. Wait... Wait... Wait... And Wait... 16. Once done, you will get a URL of the game. Your done! Note: When posting the URL here, don't forget to tell them to rename it to; sistersParty.rar then Un-Rar it. That's is just an example.

Psp 2000 - after 20 mins of playing the screen has green lines going through it, restart and its fine for another 20 mins

The screen could be broken maybe loose from motherboard.

Try replacing the screen or unpluging it and pluging it back in.

Hope this helps.

I have a grey sreaker icon on my psp but only when i plug in my head phones and when i have them pluged in the sound stays as high as it can go so i cant turn it down but when i unplug them i can mess with...

It may be the type of head phones you are using. Try using a different pair. Also, check and see if your headphones have a volume control or a mute button on them. Your PSP may be at max volume but if your headphones have a seperate volume control that may cause the volume to be real low.

How do i reboot my psp?

Have you tried turning on, but then hold the power switch down for around 10-15 seconds or until the power light simply turns off, no flashing. If not, then you should jump on the internet and look for a so-called Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick. They will actually install custom firmware on your PSP which you can remove later on, but if you use those, it should unbrick the PSP, so you can use it again.

Reset psp,once turned on doesnt work?.

Looks like you might of run an update of some sort from the UMD disc or memory card. Take the battery out and then put it back after 15 mins.

If it still doesnt work im afraid you may of bricked it by forcing shutdown on the PSP.

There are people on ebay who might be able to help if you cant get the PSP to work.

Just type 'bricked psp' into search and tell the person what happened. It shouldnt cost more than £15 to sort the PSP out.

Wont stay on

got this same problem before,dropped a psp and after that it only powers on for a while and turns off.soon i found out that the main board is twisted.when i bend the psp a little bit it turns on normally,but when i release the prissure from the grip it shuts down.the best solutiion for that is to dismantle the psp and reheat the main board using a hot air machine for about 3 min.for the mother board to return to its original position.

Psp fat

Im usually pretty good with psp's.. But this is a new case. Seems your psp ISNT bricked.. which is good, but somethings happened to upset your normal screen.
Is your psp custom firmware? Try holding R when turning it on, if its custom firmware, it would boot into recovery mode.
If not, then best solution would be to have someone restore it using the unbricking method.

Sony Manual says:


During an update, do not remove the Memory Stick Duo™ media, do not remove the AC adaptor and do not turn off the system. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged and the system may require servicing or exchange.

But you can still repair that yourself if you are confident, I am giving you a link for instructions and infos.
