    My son's PSP screen is frozen with 'Please Wait' on it.....and, it won't even turn off. It's not even a week old. Now what?? It just doesn't seem right to take out the battery to solve this problem. Any suggestions are appreciated!! :)

Take out the battery and put it back in.If this does not solve the problem then all u need to do is to just let the psp battery drain till its finished by keeping it on.then recharge.

There may be a physical issue with your motherboard or UMD drive. If you want to fix it yourself, You can get the part at psp Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at psp Repair Guide.

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.


Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

Cant off the psp go and still on screen is please wait..cant go to the menu


Greetings,

It seems like your Psp Go has gotten stuck on that screen. The only valid way to fix this is to either:
  • Wait for the Psp to Die. Just let is sit and it will run out of power eventually.
  • Pull the battery out of the Psp which will cut the power. Then place battery back in and turn on.
Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.
