This may be the case if you jailbroke your iPhone and it was a tethered jailbreak. You may need to rejailbreak it again depending on the version of your iPhone if you can still remember it. Most of the time, redsn0w can help your iPhone go back to its jailbreak mode again. You can search at for more details about booting up your tethered iPhone. If you're not jailbroken, then it is a different scenario. Can you try to plug it in your computer and see if it'll be detected in iTunes. If it was detected in iTunes, you can try to check if your iPhone can get out of the Apple logo screen by putting it on DFU mode (hold both home and power buttons for 10 seconds then release power button and continue holding home button until it's detected by iTunes). After it was detected by iTunes, you can try to hard reset it to see if it'll boot up normally and go back to the slide to unlock screen. Hard reset means pushing both home and power buttons until you see the Apple logo. If all else fails, put it again in DFU mode and then just restore it in iTunes.

Close all apps, then clear cache and browsing data of all apps from settings, uninstall apps that you don't use, always make sure your phone battery is adequately charged, make sure your phone has updated firmware, close background app refresh, then try playing your games, if problem still persist, upgrade to a better phone.

Why do my blu phone gets overheated when i play games especially

Hi Cherisse,it's a common feature to most modern day smartphones;with high end specifications and capabilities.Nothing to worry about.The model is on Android just like mine.An easy quick fix would be to download a phone cooling app.Visit google play store.Download "Battery monitor" which will automatically warn you of the phone's temperature,then work for you on what is causing the hot feeling plus stopping it for you.

It could be a number of things. 1. When you don't play your psp for awhile the battery dies. So try plugging it in. 2. If you have ran any online downloaded program recently you could have the bricker virus. Witch you would have to send it to sony to be fixed. 3.Try removing your memory stick and battery then turn it on with the power adapter plugged in.

Controller battery ran low, died, and console shutoff. now it wont eject game, it comes on for one second, starts to eject, then shuts off

Sounds like you might actually have a power supply issue, or a board issue. Try CPR in New York City. They are faster than the manufacturer, and cheaper! They have a usual turnaround of 3-5 business days. And if you become a fan on their facebook page, mention it and you will get a 10% discount.
Here is the link to their facebook page, it has all the info you need.

Hope it helps!

Easy to battery low

Depending on your phone make, Phones should last at least 12 hours without playing movies,music or games.If your battery low comes after a series of games or music or videos then its normal.If not then you probably have a poor battery which you may need to change.You can also manage your battery life by turning off ,vibrations,high volumes and keypad tones..just to help you manage power.

Psp will shut off in 5 minutes

could be a faulty battery.

they just use a NMH type battery similar to a cell phone, and they DO die occasionally, or if its been used a lot and not charged properly.
you can buy replacements from gaming stores, and from online auction sites. they go from US$10 to US$25 so shop around for a good price.

It could even be your PSP wall charger that isnt delivering enough juice to the battery?
