It probably froze try and remove battery. if that dont work turn it on and wait a second then hold the power switch in the off position but do not let go until it turns off that should completey restart it.

You may have just over done it. you may need a new battery to get it to work. when you are adding things to your psp, make sure you understand the power you are going to need. if you overload it it may do the same thing. I say you try a new battery. connie

My psp just went black with the power light on, i took out the battery and waited 5 minutes and stuck it back in and it worked. My psp is modded i dont know if thats the reason why it worked when i put the battery back on

  • mikedinfl Feb 15, 2011

    My psp slim did the same thing but no mods on mine. Had power with plug or battery, power light was on but it had no sound or screen. Also would not turn off unless I removed the battery. Ran the battery down, charged it again(took hours)... I suspected humidity because I left it in my travel trailer for a month(a rainy month). After taking it apart as seen on youtube(not always smart) I used a blowdryer on low heat, from far away for only 30 seconds. Put it back together and it turned on fine the first try. But, then I realized I accidentally disconnected the ribbon for the buttons across the bottom (volume, select, start, etc) I took it apart again and carefully reinserted the end of the ribbon... FINALLY I am playing The Resistance!

I suggest you take the back off were you can find the battery and then take a look at the screen maybe the screen has just had all it can take? just make sure the screws are in the correct place.

My son that is 5 has a psp and it was working great He was game sharing with his cousin and now under games it dont have the umb option and will not play the games what do i need to do?


Hi,

Try the following procedure to format the unit.
Step 1:

Remove the battery from the left side of the PSP while it is still on. The unit will power down instantly. Wait ten seconds and then replace the battery.

Step 2:
Press both clear shoulder buttons at the top of the PSP and keep them held while the PSP reboots. A "Recovery" mode will be initiated.

Step 3:
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.

Thank you !!

First thing that you can do here is to take the battery for about 10 minutes from your PSP and then after that put it back in and check if that will be working fine now....
