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.

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

don't forget to download psp media manager 3.00 on your pc.
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

Memory stick duo won't read!


You probably need a new memory stick module inside the PSP. I have seen this many times in my store and we replaced the board and it worked fine. Contact your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. See if there is a Play-N-Trade within your area. I work at one and we do repairs. I'm not sure if Gamestop or Gamecrazy do repairs.

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
