How do i play runescape on my psp? I have tried so

As of this date, Java (the maker of the plug-in runescape uses to program the game) hasn't released a version that allows psp users to play runescape on their psps. Though there has been reported to be occurrences where extreme hackers have made it possible to allow runescape to be played on the psp. I'll provide a link if you'd like to look into it.

This has been confirmed to work on numerous forums.

Hello. sorry for disturbing but my game naruto

Hello tanoeluc23

Whenever a PS2 game is run in backward compatibility mode, there's always a chance of a problem arising.

There were/are problems with this series of games running on the PS3. You'll have to wait until either Sony or the games publisher release an update to rectify the situation.

“playstation error 80031208”

What were you doing when error occured? Seems like this error is common when trying to upload music to your ps3 via a CD. If so, some copied discs cannot be read by the PS3 or it could be protected in the data on the cd.

Ps2 powers up, but disc is not spinning and

Following could be the reasons for not spinning any PS2 disc:
  • A dirty laser. Try cleaning the laser and see if it helps. If you can see crust or dust covering the laser eye, it may not be strong enough to read anything at all. If the laser looks clean, this is probably not the issue.
WATCH this video to clean lens

  • An unplugged laser cable. These things normally do not come out by themselves, but if you opened the ps2 that was spinning OK to clean the laser and/or removed the laser to clean it, plugged it in, now it's spinning 1/2 of a turn, the laser cable may not be in securely. If it is in securely, make sure it is plugged into the motherboard end properly.
  • A dead laser. On models 30001, 35001, and some 30001R, this is the most likely issue. These models are old and the original lasers were a bit unreliable.

No Spin At All If your spindle hub is NOT SPINNING AT ALL, NOT EVEN 1/2 OF A TURN, it may be bad or unplugged. A tell tale sign of it being unplugged is if you hit eject, the laser moves down the rail, and starts grinding because the PS2 keeps trying to move it down the rail even though it hit the end. There's a small switch on the spindle hub that tells the unit to stop pushing the laser because it's reached the end. Spindle hubs usually do not go bad by themselves, usually either the PS2 too a bad fall and it became bent [try spinning it by hand], or someone the cable out and put it in too many times [or incorrectly] and the silver contacts on the cable were detached.

If your ps2 controllers aren't vibrating anymore then this could be the fix that you were waiting for.

WARNING: Make sure that 1) Its not your controller that is broken, test it in a machine that does have vibration. 2) Make sure that the vibration option is turned ON in your games

If you are sure that your controllers aren't broken, then you may have blown a fuse inside your ps2 on your mainboard.

To fix it you have to remove a blown fuse from the ps2 mainboard and either put a new fuse there or replace it with a piece of single strand wire. The point is fairly small so you need a fine tip soldering iron and a single strand of wire. It may be best to get someone who is good at soldering to do this fix for you:

I take no responsibility for anyone breaking their ps2 when performing this fix. All I know is that i've done it and it worked a treat!

You will need;

1) A fine tip soldering iron and some thin solder.
2) A single strand piece of wire, something thin like kynar or enameled wire.
3) A game with vibration function to test the ps2 afterwards.
4) A controller that works with vibration.

Between the power supply connector and the PS9 fuse there is a small black square with 2 silver prongs on the left hand side. This featured on my mainboard as well, and I was able to locate the correct / broken fuse using a multimeter. Look for a fuse with S7 on the top near here, and check for continuity, If there is none then thats the one! One last thing before it goes into full detail;

Check the track between the black square with the silver prongs and the broken fuse, if its on the same track then you can attatch one end of the wire to that prong that is on the same track, and the other side to the end of the fuse opposite of the black square with silver prongs *

This will take bout 10 mins to do - start to finish.

Below tells you how to do it

Below is a description on where and what to look for i.e. the fuse, and how to repair it.

1. I have a V5 PS2

2. Take the PS2 apart.

3. Remove the Power Supply motherboard.

4. After removing the Power Supply Board, you will need to remove the metal shroud and expose the entire PS2 Motherboard.

5. Once you have done this look around the connector for the Power supply board on the PS2 mother board. You will see a number (maybe around 4 of them all located within 2 inches of the Power supply connector) of fuses with "S7" written on it.

6. The one you are looking for has the text "PS9" written on the motherboard next to it.

7. Check it with a multi-meter, for continuity, there will none. If you are not sure, you can check all of them, when the buzzing on multi-meter stops, that's the one.

8. To repair it, use a strand of wire, possibly from an old extension cable or something, but only one strand. Solder it on both sides of the fuse in order to close the connection.

9. Reassemble the PS2.

10. Boot up and play your game, vibration is back.

Hope This Helps

When playing Red Dead Redemption

If a game freezes, then the problem is usually due to the PS3 overheating. The PS3 needs good airflow through the vents so make sure that you don't put it in a corner or in a place where the hot air won't linger around for long like near a window. Also, don't play for too long; give your PS3 a break every once in a while (1 minute breaks don't count) :)

I can hear the music but people speaking sounds like they're faint and echoed

If you can hear the music in your PlayStation 3 (PS3) but people speaking sounds faint and echoed, there are a few things you can try to improve the sound quality: 1. Adjust the audio settings: Go to the PS3 menu and select "Settings" > "Sound Settings" > "Audio Output Settings." Choose the appropriate audio output settings for your system and TV or monitor, and make sure that the correct input channel is selected. 2. Check your connections: Make sure that all of your cables are securely connected to the PS3 and the TV or monitor. If the cables are loose, this can cause poor sound quality. 3. Check the game or movie settings: If you are playing a game or watching a movie, check the audio settings within the game or movie to ensure that the sound is optimized for your TV or monitor. 4. Adjust your TV or monitor settings: If the sound quality is still poor, adjust your TV or monitor settings. You may need to adjust the bass, treble, and other audio settings to improve the sound quality. 5. Use headphones: If none of the above solutions work, consider using headphones to listen to the sound from your PS3. This can provide better sound quality and reduce background noise and echoes. If you continue to experience problems with the sound quality on your PS3, you may need to contact Sony customer support for further assistance or repair. Take care and have a great day! -Alex

My PS3 have error code 8002f334

I've seen this error code going around for the older PS3's. From what I can gather, it's a HDD issue that can't be cured easily. Here are the steps to take that I found, that seem to work for all PS3 systems.
  • take out the hard drive
  • connect hard drive to pc (running windows 7 64bit, but any windows os should work without other software)
  • open up disk management - in win7 it asked me to make a master boot record, so I did.
  • format in NTSF - that's right, NTSF - don't use quick format
  • shut down pc, take out hd, take usb drive too
  • put hd back in ps3, put usb stick in ps3
  • boot ps3
  • a screen will pop-up saying the hard disk have to be formatted
  • hold start + Select for 5 sec.
  • After formatting the system will restart and the update will start installing
  • configure your ps3 setup - done
  • Remember to get the latest firmware from SONY onto the USB drive.

Milk into psp

I think I just emailed you a Quote on Repair of this, if your name is Dennis. If you cannot get it repaired at the Quote A gave you. I suggest you open the case and clean up the entire unit. This may lead you into a majorly disabled PSP. I have great experience at doing this. The Milk can cause a form of electroplating to occur in your PSP. Where the Circuit traces run, power from the battery and the milk costing will actualy cause metal to migrate from on spot to another. You Joy stick and Pads at probably already joined or Shorted. My price is not bad. and less than the price of a Game. I gurantee the repair for 90 days. If your not Dennis, I suggest you click on " Repair Directory" and On the next Screen select " Video Game Consoles". Pick a good service. My service is listed near the top.
