    just go to a electronic shop and tell him to check the problem.But first if he wants the psp for a day then remove the battery and give or else they will exchange it with a old one.

    My PSP will turn on but it's stuck at a fray screen with crossing lines and the loading icon on the bottom corner. If I go into Recovery and run the reboot, then I get an error message saying "The game could not be started 80010002." I've read a bunch forums and changed the configuration settings on the GEN recovery menu. Nothing seems to work, please help. (PSP 1001)

When i try to run a iso/cso game, the white psp would shoe up and then the screen truns black went back to the psp menu and it said Game could not start 80020148 my psp's system software is 5.00 M33-4


What you need to do is disable the umd from within the custom firmware menu. Completely turn off the PSP (hold the power button up until it turns off). Then while holding the right shoulder button, turn the PSP on. The recovery menu will load. Select configuration and then disable the "no umd" option. Exit from the recovery menu and insert a umd disc into the PSP. Make sure auto start is also disabled in the PSP menu settings. You should now be able to run your game.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

WHen I turn on my PSP I get a yellow screen/Menu. It has Settings, Camera, Music, Video etc. How do I exit this to play a game?


This is the XMB its the main menu of the system. Games will be located under the Controller Icon. To play games insert a UMD, or if a game is downloaded and saved on the memory card, go through the icons under Controller icon. A disk icon will appear and show a preview screen to the game, press X to start the game.

No menu


Try removing the UMD media and then turning on the PSP. This is because when there is a UMD in, It wants to at least know whats in, and most likely, your UMD drive or your UMD disc is damaged.

- Your UMD drive tray may be bent.
- There may be a foreign object in your UMD drive

You might have PSP stop reading UMD discs, First you will do some trouble shooting with what might be wrong with your PSP unit.

first is the Disc Spinning motor. This will not let The disc in the UMD spin. On a working PSP you will hear the disc start to spin up, then you can hear the laser start to twitch, followed by the laser motor moving the laser down the rails.

2nd is something stuck in the UMD gear, try to clean the gear of arm of dust, plastic, soda, and even hair.

and at the last is the actual laser itself. It will not focus the laser to read the UMD disc.

Hopefully this help, Pls post back should you need additional information...!

The play game icon not showing on his PSP


Is there a disc in the drive? If so, it sounds like your UMD drive (or disc) is damaged. Does it only happen with one game or with all your son's games?

Psp ( i cant get games to play )


Have you inserted the game disc UMD into the PSP itself? You have to wait a few seconds after you turn it on before the game icon will be visible in the main menu screen before you can access the game. When it's active and you have the game icon selected press the "X" button to start the game.

Menu of the psp


Try a different disk? I've found that sometimes when you turn on the psp and you're in the game menu of the PSP menu, the UMD won't be there, but if you go over to music or something, and go back to game, it will have returned.
