PSP Problems? Answered

I have a Sony PSP that I have had for about a month.  I have been playing multiple games.  Then, one day my PSP would only read one disk.  You could select it off the main menu of the PSP, but it wouldn't load.  It makes clunking noises when you load it the game that won't work.  Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!!  Thanks!!

Windows on a psp

Hello,ever heard of bochs? Erm...bochs for psp? Well,It sucks instead you DOSbox because Dosbox runs approx 3 times faster than bochs. Dosbox starts in approx 10 seconds Boots windows 3.1 is about 10 seconds Boots windows 95 in about 1 minute,not 10 minutes I have a few scripts that start it they are: osrun.bat (asks the user weather to start win 95 or win3.1) 95run.bat (boots windows 95) 31run.bat (starts windows3.1) Should i make an Instructable for this? you know..setting it up..making the images and whatever FAQ: Q:y u put windos95 Y NOT VISTA???!!!111 A:because a psp does not have a 1.5GHz duo processor and 1GB+ of ram Q:what other oses can it run? A:You can run the following: dos(comes in dosbox) OS/2 Warp(has not been tested but theoretically it should work) Windows 1.0-3.11(windows 3.1 has been tested and others should work) windows 95(tested and works perfectly) windows 98(ive heard stories but i have not tested it it may work) It cannot run windows 2000 and up because it is unsupported by Dosbox and by far its unsupported by bochs. a bit more info: The psp PHAT can emulate up to about 5 Megs of ram Just 1 meg above what windows 95 needs and thats BARE MINIMUM!!! The psp SLIM can emulate up to 16.5MB of ram which is about the recommended amount of ram for windows 95 ALso the psp's processor normally runs at 222MHz but can run at the full 333MHz its underclocked so that the battery lasts long and don't worry you wont damage your psp by running at a full 333MHz it will just eat up a battery like i eat up a macadamia nut cookie. So should i make an instructable?

DS vs PSP !

Its the handheld battle! lol.Just wondering which is better Sony PSP or the Nintendo DS?Ive got a PSP and I actually got bored of it! The games are not that fun or addictive to me.....I havn't played on it since September, now thats a long time!I'm thinking of getting a DS, cause i have played an old pokemon game ( crystal) for the first time ever on my phone, and REALLY liked it. Its very addictive. So it would be better if i played it on a DS which has a bigger screen(s). My phone is only one 1.5 inch.Plus the mario games and the trauma center games look very fun!So also, I am asking you is it worth it to get a DS? Will I get bored of it ? Cause personally i found the PSP to be very overrated, and eventually I got bored of it, now its lying around somewhere - useless, collecting dust.

NOOB homebrew on psp slim

Hey guys(and maybe girls), i just hacked my brothers psp slim. Now i am used to the phat pap where you install the 1.50 subset to get homebrew to work, but that said only for fat psp. Only some homebrew works on the slim psp, but has major issues. for instance psp revolution has no sound anywhere, and none of the bottom buttons work. I have tried both the 5.00 and 1.50 kernels in the recovery menu. Is there some patch, or homebrew launcher that i dont know about?? should i install the 1.50 kernel addon anyway? firmware is 5.00 M33-6

PSP Fix, Need Help

Hello all! I recently aquired a broken PSP 1000 as sort of a challenge to myself. Now however, I actually want it to work. I need some help with the fix, so here are the problems I have been able to identify: -PSP won't always charge, I strongly believe it is the battery though. When I tilt the PSP around at different angles, it will charge. Also, fiddling with the battery makes it charge. -PSP won't tun on. I have checked the power fuse, and it was burned out. I placed a jumper across it like so many internet guides say, and it now has continuity. When I hold the power switch, the PSP will do one of two things:                                  1. The light will turn off, and then turn back to solid orange (charging)                                  2. The light will turn green for about 0.5 to 1 second, and then turn off -PSP will make a rythmic clicking when not charging, doesn't seem to be a problem though. -Battery is cracked, and I don't know if it works properly because it won't maintain proper contact with the PSP. I have also checked the backlight and USB fuses, they both have continuity  so I'm not worried about fixing them. Right now I would just like it to turn on. If anyone knows anything, please make a comment, perhaps someone else has this problem. P.S.  What is a pandora battery? I keep hearing about those, what do they do? Also, what exactly signifies a "bricked" PSP? Thanks UPDATE: 11/08/2009 I had a friend test the battery, he said the battery works and he charged it for me.  Now the PSP turns on. But, (there's always a but) there is no activity on the LCD. I tried bridging the backlight fuse with tweezers to see if the fuse was the problem, no luck. So what now? All I have learned is that the charge circuit doesn't work and that the PSP turns on with no activity. I held a white LED flashlight up to the screen, but I didn't see anything. any suggestions?
