Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

Psp internal error(00000001)

I have this problem as well,but in the chat forums I,ve read that this is not a real problem,that it simply means there is no wireless network available.I sometimes get this message and at other times I get a signal.I,ve been instructed on sending my system to sony,but I hate to go through this hassle or return my psp and exchange it at the store I purchased it from only to dowmload the 3.71 update and still get the same message.

   That said.....Is my psp broken or not?

The PSP is NOT broken; this is normal.

The wireless access point signal is too weak or nonexistant.

If you have access to an Internet connection that DOES work, choose the Network Update option on your PSP to ensure you have the latest firmware version.

Leave it on for 12 hours, and then it should be fixed

That probably means that your just in an area that doesnt have a good wi-fi connection, or your trying to connect to an access point that you set up in another location.
