You can try restting your device by performing the following;

Remove the battery from the left side of the PSP while it is still on. The unit will power down instantly. Wait 10 seconds and then replace the battery.Press both clear shoulder buttons at the top of the PSP and keep them held down while the PSP reboots. This initiates a "Recovery" mode.press down on the control pad to locate a "recovery" folder. This will contain all of your PSP content, including games, music, videos and podcasts that are saved on the device. Highlight this folder and press the "X" button to begin reinstalling your content.

I had to format psp and now need to update it so it works for my son, please help!


Hello Yasmin,

You need a wi-fi connection in order to update your PSP.

Turn ON your PSP, go to settings (all the way to the left)

Then press UP all the way to Network Update and then press X.

Connect to a wireless connection and then the PSP should automatically check for updates.

If the PSP found an update, it will ask you if you want to update your PSP.

Press X.



I hope this helped you.
You can rate my answer if you appreciate it.
Thanks!

How do I update my psp console?


If you have internet on your psp goto the left all the way and then go all the way up and there should be a update icon in your settings icon.

If this does not work you can download the update via sony's website and put it onto you memory card via usb from the computer and then update that way.

If you found this awnser useful please give a thumbs up or even better write a Testimonial.

Psp failed to update mlb 09 and now the screen is froze.


take off the battery and try again. If this doesn't help then the copy of the mlb game is defective.

Or you can just update your PSP through your computer (if you have internet)

Son interrupted a firm ware update now PSP won't turn on


my investigations suggest that your son has "bricked" the PSP. Basically the memory that stores the firmware is corrupt and apparently only a main board replacement will fix the issue.

A google search found THIS. I have no affiliation with them and have never used them though.. might be worth a call at least??

While playing with PSP it suddenly gets stuck and screen goes blank


check battery, run without the battery, using ac adapter, see if problem persists did you update psp firmware? if so, undo the update, go back to previous firmware version
