Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

Psp wont power up

Hi,I hope you can help! I was messing around with my son's PSP and some how got into some sort of download. It came up on the screen that the PSP should not be switched off during what ever download it was trying to do. After 10-20 minutes it was apparent that nothing was happening and no matter what button was pressed nothing happened. I removed and refitted the battery and since this the PSP won't switch on even when it's plugged into the mains. What have I done? Hope you can help!

Psp My son sat on it,an when he turned it on behind the screen colour comes up an you can see moving of the game,but it broke as you can`t see anything other then colour. Can you help? what would you say...


Hi. Kieran.

I don't want to be the person to give bad news, but after reasearching your question for you it sounds like you son broke the psp. The color screen behind the lsd screen is damaged and usually cannot be repaired by an unqualified person. If you were to bring the system to be repaired between labor and costs, it may be cheaper to buy a new PSP.

Hopefully, depending on how long you have had the PSP you may be under a warranty.

What I suggest is to call Sony. See if you are under warranty, and have it replaced for no cost to you. Otherwise you will have to purchase a new PSP.

The number for Sony is found on the back of almost all of the psp video game manuals.

I hope I was able to fixya problem, and I wish you and your son Happy Gaming!

PSP console not working


you failed to state if your son was doing the update via UMD disc. im inferring so, so if the battery died while it was updating, your sons PSP is bricked. you need a Pandora battery + magic memory stick. you can find them on ebay, amazon, anywhere. also if you ask around where you live some people may do it locally.

Download off internet onto psp


If it's a game you download, it's most likely a Windows or Macintosh executable. As the PSP's operating system is neither Windows or Mac compatible, these won't run on it.

Some sites have Java based games, designed to be multi-platform. These won't run on PSP either, without doing some third party software upgrades that you don't want to mess with unless you really know what you're doing.

However, there are some Flash-based games out there that will run on the PSP natively. Do a google search for "flash games on PSP" and you should find a few sites for them.

Hope that helps.

No screen


The backlight is probably gone. Just had same problem on my sons one. I purchased a replacement off ebay seems a simple enough job to do if you are sort of tech minded.
