When I switch on my PSP, it directly goes onto load the UMD game and when I try to quit using HOME button, the buttons and consoles dont work. Then I need to use the hold button after which though the...


Hi. Since you're in UMD Autoload mode, you need to configure that in the PSP Settings. To do this, turn off your PSP and remove your UMD. Now, turn it back on and it won't autoload your UMD since it wasn't there anymore.
Now, go to "Settings" and scroll down to "System Settings" and press X. Scroll down again the selection until you see "UMD Auto-Start" and press X. At the right side will appear the options "ON" and "OFF". Select "OFF" and press O button several times to go back to main screen.
Insert your UMD. Now, try playing games from Memory Stick. You may have to turn off your PSP and turn it on again to finally play homebrew...
I hope this helps...

Disks wont read


First try cleaning the lens. Mine got dust on it, and it stopped reading UMDs.

A little rubbing alcohol and a q tip and it might work.

use 70% alcohol to clean the lens. Use that stick that you clean your ears with. And use not to mush alcohol. Let the lens dry for 10 minutes and try to play a UMD disk again.

If that doesn't work and still under warranty just send it in and they'll fix it for you :) Good luck!

My psp wont turn on


Your PSP has just bricked. It may cause an error while you're upgrading your PSP or while playing the game.

Try this:
1. Pull the battery out.
2. Let it turn on while charging.
3. If your PSP LED power indicator turned on for 10-20 secs and the screen not turn on, it means you're really bricked it.
4. So what do you do?
5. You need extra PSP for making pandora battery and jigkick memory stick.
6. You'll need this link: http://www.psp-hacks.com/2007/10/16/pandoras-ultimate-magic-stick-installer/

My psp could not read the game folder on the memory stick


Your psp must be custom firmwared for you to be able to play games from the ISO folder, to custom firmware it, it must have a pandora battery and the files required. You can buy pandoras batterys and a magic memory stick off ebay for a reasonable price.  Hope this helps

Hi Gohan102,

 

Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....
