You either have a broke power button or a bloew fuse on your psp. if its just the power botton you can buy a new one on ebay for about 10.00 and install it your self. if that dont work then u have a blew fuse and inlease you know how to solder on motherboards then your going to have to buy a new mother board which will cost you about 90-110 or buy a new psp which is about 170.00

My son dropped his dsi xl in the loo and he tried pushing the power button to turn it off. I've blower dried it. I haven't be able to take it apart to dry out, but now I have it in a bag with rice....


First you want to keep it plugged in and start it. If it doesn't start, let it charge and try again. If it still doesn't start you might want to call and check if you have warranty over it, and then send it back to get it replaced. That or get a new one all together.

Hi, could you help me please? recently my stupid nephew tried connecting the internet to his dsi and then he switched the dsi off, when he tried to switch the dsi ON it said: "an error has occurred...


Close the DS, turn the volume all the way down and then press a few more times, reopen, hold down power switch. It should turn off.

If it still doesn't work then it look like it was trying to do an update and was shut off while updating.

For a Guarantee fix you must change your DSi motherboard, they cost around $40 on ebay.

Thanks

Fourth times when i off the psp and then turn on back, everything hang and not able to play at all. can anyone teach me how do reboot like the shop pple. they charge me each time and not willing to teach...


First, try holding the power switch for 10 seconds, this does a complete reset of the PSP, but doesn't reset it to factory settings.

If that doesn't work, turn it off the same way as above, but this time, hold SELECT, START, square and triangle as the machine starts up. Keep holding them down until you see the screen light come on, but just a blank black screen. It'll show that screen for a few more seconds, then it should be just like it was when you took it out of the box. You'll go through the initial setup again.

My button for turn it on is broken


You may want to call Sony and inquire about the issue. If your button is broken, and the console won't turn on, you may either have it plugged in a power socket that doesn't have any power, the switch on the back may be turned off, or your console may be defective. Ensure that there's power, and the switch is on (the I should be pressed in, and the O should be facing outwards) before contacting Sony.

When I turn on my snes, the screen just goes black.


  • Blank Screen
    1. Make sure your system is hooked up correctly. This is the number one reason for a blank screen. To ensure all hookup connections are firm and correct, remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion (this will help fully seat the connections). For more information about connecting the system, check the following hookup steps:

    2. Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
    3. Make sure the system has power. If not, go to the No Power Light instructions.
    4. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
      Important Note: Inserting the game with the Power ON may result in a blank screen. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks
    5. There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.

    If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, click here.
  • Other Screen Problems
    1. Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system.
      We find that video problems occur most when an unlicensed RF switch is used. Make sure the name "Nintendo" is molded onto the RF switch, as opposed to "for use with Nintendo." Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with our systems and may not work correctly.
    2. Check all of the system connections to verify that they are firm and correct.
      • For AV connections
        Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion
      • For RF connections
        Make sure the channel switch on the TV and system are set to the same channel (either CH3 or CH4)
    3. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to make sure it is locked in place.
      Important Note: Removing the Game Pak with the power ON will cause the Game Pak image to freeze on the screen. Press Reset to correct the problem. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks.
    4. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
    If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, see below.

Nintendo ds lite that shuts off unexpectedly


Hi again,

Ive been doing a bit of research and it seems that if the DS lite has had a knock the black coil near the power switch could have been knocked loose which would make the DS lite switch off randomly. If you want to see if thats the problem take the DS lite apart (for a dismantle guide click here) and check to see if its loose... its the black round thing with 100 written on it near the power switch. If its loose then heat up the solder round it and that should reset it.

If thats not it check the L2 transistor is firmly in place, again if its loose heat the solder and reset it.

Another thing you can check is the power switch make sure its solid and doesnt wobble internally i.e. the black moveable part only moves the way its supposed to, as well as checking the solder is solid.

I finished fixing the red rings and my 360 was working fine but it doesnt turnm on now. WHY?


Is your power supply getting power (ie. is the light yellow). When you hit the switch on the (XBOX), does the power supply turn light turn green? If not, the XBOX is not recognizing the switch or the power supply is bad.. If it is, then you may want to recheck your red rings fix. The parts you've installed may have come loose and shorted something out.

If your trying to turn the XBOX on with a joystick, you may have to resync them. Try using the XBOX switch on. If it turns on with the XBOX switch and not the joysticks, it could be the wireless component in the XBOX or the joystick batteries.


**NOTE: I am saying XBOX but I mean the 360.

DS lite


I'd suggest removing and then re-inserting the battery (this should at least switch the power off).
Is the power switch loose? If so it's been broken and needs replacing (not an easy job).
Alternately it could just be stuck in sleep mode which happens when the DS is closed while powered on but should awaken when re-opened.
