My WLAN switch turns off my psp

As soon as I flip the WLAN switch to get online the whole system turns off and wont come back on until I turn the switch off and restart the system. It didnt always do this. Its only a month old and I got online twice before it started doing this.

What firmware you have? Try resetting the entire system. Also, try downgrading the system. It may just be the case of a faulty Firmware or so...

I don't know how to swich on my wlan on my psp


This is a really common question, so common that I've actually taken a photograph of my own Sony PSP to show exactly what you need to do!
On the lower left edge of your PSP when you're facing the screen, there's a small silver slider switch: that's your WLAN switch. Slide it upwards:
sony-psp-wlan-switch.pngCan you see it there in the photo? Mine's already up in the WLAN on position.
I leave mine on all the time, though it's possible that I'd get slightly better battery life if I left it off except for when I wanted to access either an ad hoc game or the Internet. Dunno, haven't tested it out.
Anyway, flip that switch up and the little orange light just above it should sporadically pop on for a second or so, and if you scan for a local network connection, it light up quite a bit!
Hope that helps you get up and online!

How to turned off my wlan in my psp


If it's a PSP 1000 you use the switch on the left hand side of the PSP. If it's PSP 2000 or 3000 It is on the top by the left trigger it says WLAN on it, it works basically like the On/\Off switch on your PSP, except it slides into place and stays there until it's finished with.

My psp wlan switch wont turn on... it's switched on but it says it isnt.. help? i've restored sysytem settings and toggling it around thanks James


Unfortunately the WLAN switch you are switching on the outside of the PSP is connected to an internal WLAN switch which is soldered to the motherboard.

Either the switch has outright failed, or it has broken off of the motherboard in one or more areas. The following is the switch I refer to:

You have to configure the system to your WiFi by searching for a wireless access point and following the dirrections on the PSP. You must also flip a switch on the top of the system that says "WLAN" to turn on the WiFi.
