The laser or one of the components to the laser was dammaged. the lases is very fragile and even a light touch with your finger can ruin the lens. the best place would be the manufacturer.

Ok here the problem my mom dropped her psp in the toliet then tryed to see if it still worked. it started up but wouldnt play games and after a bit it wouldnt turn on at all. its been about three month...


It's water damaged. It's very difficult, if not impossible, to fixed water damaged electronics. If you drop something in the water, you're supposed to rinse it off with distilled water and let it dry completely. If you turn it on while it's still wet, it will damage it permanently.

Tip

What To Do if I Drop My Cell Phone in Water?


The small convenient size of cell phones unfortunately also makes these electronics accident-prone, especially when it comes to water. If you drop your cell phone in water it is often possible to salvage it. If you drop your cell phone in water, you may have only seconds to retrieve it, so you need to act fast even if it means retrieving it from the toilet!

The next thing to do if you drop your cell phone in water is to remove the battery immediately without even hesitating to turn off the power. Dry the batter with a towel and set aside to dry thoroughly. The battery itself may or may not work again, fortunately batteries can be replaced fairly inexpensively. Even if the battery does work, it is a good idea to get a new one.

After you have removed the battery, dry off the cell phone with an absorbent towel as best as you can. Use cotton swabs to soak up water in crevices and on any fragile, exposed circuits. It is also helpful to disassemble it if you can and let all the parts dry separately. Just be sure that you know how to put it back together. If it is a flip or sliding cell phone, leave it open.

If you drop your cell phone in a beverage or in salt water, rinse the phone off with fresh water once you have removed the battery. Once you drop the phone in water, the additional rinsing will not do further damage, however, minerals or other materials will.

If you drop your cell phone in liquid that isn’t pure water, you may want to try giving it an alcohol bath. The alcohol will displace minerals and microscopic substances as well as aiding in the evaporation of the fluid. If it is available, you should use an alcohol concentration of 95% rather than rubbing alcohol that usually contains only 70%.

Once your phone is clean, leave it in a warm dry area or near an air conditioner for three days before you attempt to replace the battery and turn it on. This is very important, because although you may think that you have thoroughly dried it, the slightest moisture can react with the battery and cause it to short circuit. If droped your cell phone in water, and want to save it, resist the temptation of turning it on to see if it is working until you have waited at least 72 hours.

I upgraded my psp 2006 from 5.00 m33-6 to version 5.50. Now it does not detect the games saved in my memory stick. What should i do?


Are you trying to play the game from the memory stick? Or are you trying to play a game from the UMD and retrieve the saved game data from the memory stick?

5.00 m33 is a custom firmware that allows the PSP to play games stored on a memory stick. If you upgrade to 5.50, which is an original Sony firmware, that functionality will go away. If you have custom firmware, you should never upgrade it or the features like playing homebrew or loading games from a memory stick will go away.

Is psp2004pb can play games in memory stick?


psp can only play games using the UMD drive, you can only play game demos using the memory stick.
Upgrade your psp firmware version to 5.00, it adds playstation store to the psp where you can buy and download full games onto your psp, all you need to do is create an account using the playstation store on your psp if you upgrade it to 5.00.

Use this link to help you upgrade you psp to 5.00

use this link for psp media manager.

I just purchased a sony used psp for my grandson.


Hi,

Follow the directive below to;

Step 1. Put on your PSP and use the arrow keys to go to "Saved Data Utility". Scroll down to "Memory Stick" and press the O button to get into the games stored in your memory stick.

This would enable you play your games on your memory stick, but if you are still not able to do that then get a UMD to play games or verify the version of your PSP.

You can only play the games in the memory stick after the PSP has been hacked.

Regards

Psp turned off while playing game and I lost all saved data.


Hey there, may have received a "short" in your PSP. What I would reccomend firstly is this...Go ahead and take the battery out of your PSP and then reseat it. Unfortunately, if your PSP is turning on right now, but you have no saved data, the memory stick may have been wiped...unless of course you have other data and just not the data of the game your playing. Data is stored in the onboard memory of the PSP and unfortunately when the game recieves a shock like you've said it lets go of the memory, much like someone pushing you in the hallway and you lose your books. I hope this gave you ideas, and/or solved your problem.

Gee I wonder why. Just take the battery out and let both the PSP and the battery dry out for a few days.

Jim: 1. Did you also dried out the batteries or turn it on with the batteries still humid?? If turn it on with humid batteries you will have probably damaged the circuit segment of battery charging. 2. How youy dried the PSP by natural air or with a blower?? If by natural air, additional help with a hair dryer blower will be needed but not in maximum hot. Do not expose the components to excesive heat or permanent other components damage will occur. 3. Check is the gaming slot is dirty and apply 70% alcohol to it with a Q-Tip or so and let it set or dry for 10 minutes and re-try. SithPitt
