Fourth times when i off the psp and then turn on back, everything hang and not able to play at all. can anyone teach me how do reboot like the shop pple. they charge me each time and not willing to teach...


First, try holding the power switch for 10 seconds, this does a complete reset of the PSP, but doesn't reset it to factory settings.

If that doesn't work, turn it off the same way as above, but this time, hold SELECT, START, square and triangle as the machine starts up. Keep holding them down until you see the screen light come on, but just a blank black screen. It'll show that screen for a few more seconds, then it should be just like it was when you took it out of the box. You'll go through the initial setup again.

Here's the video I got the information from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCsFiWO03d0

Hey, i have a problem with my sony PSP when i start my PSP the green power light is on but there is nothing to display and the memory stick light keeps flickering too , please help ???


Hello there

You'll need to hard reset your PSP and restore it to its factory settings. Once this is done, your PSP should work perfectly.

Hold the power button on the right side of your PSP down until the device completely powers off. Wait at least five seconds after the power is off before proceeding to the next step.

Press and hold the Select and Start buttons located in the bottom right corner of the PSP.

Press and hold the Square and Triangle buttons (located on the directional pad) while continuing to hold the Select and Start buttons.

Press the power button while holding these four buttons. When the flash (logo) screen appears, you can release the four buttons and your PSP will be reset to its factory settings and the screen will no longer be blank.

My psp froze


i understand ya... I used to deal with psp's before.
Now i want more info.
What model is it? and when you turn it on now what happens?...
This might require you to re-flash your psp.
and by how it sounds to me it seems like you dont really have much experience with psp's
Try searching on google for "Unbrick PSP" you will find more info.
Another way is to go on craigslist.org and search around your location for "psp" reapair ppl. Usually this should not cost more then 20 bucks.

Psp game doesn't work...


The game that you got from the promo when you bought your psp has expired. They gave you a certain amount of time to play the game before they make it expire. They do that so that you can go out and buy the actual game. They give you a free demo to convince you to buy the actual whole game so they can make more money. And your psp cuts off when you leave it sitting for a period of time to save power and to avoid killing your power. It is a setting that you can change in the menu of your psp. You can change the amount of time you would like it to stay on while sitting un-active.
