PSP: How to Restore Factory Defaults

I had to restore the factory defaults on my Sony Playstation Portable today. The PSP had become unresponsive after playing a game, and then some of the configurations were out of whack.

If you need to restore your Sony PSP to its factory default settings, here is how you do it:

1. Go to the Settings Tab on your PSP
2. Go to System Settings, press X.
3. Scroll down until you see Restore Default Settings and press X.
4. Press your right button on your D-pad to select yes in the confirmation window and press X. The settings on your Sony Playstation Portable are reset to the defaults.

Once you complete the process, your PSP should be restored to the factory default settings. It is important to realize you that it will not "downgrade" or change the version of your Sony Playstation Portable's firmware / software. It will only reset the actually settings to the system defaults.

My son has figured out that if he resets the PSP to factory defaults he can bypass the parental controls! He then has free access to the internet....someone help!

He has a far worse problem- a controlling parent. Go jump in a fire.

try puting a password on your internet so that you need a password to gain acess to the internet it should work.

Whoever left comment 2 probably doesn't have children, and he/she assumes too many things; like, for example, that the parent (who probably pays for the internet service) has no business knowing what their child is up to.

RE:To the parent who was worrying about the child using psp for internet. You can access any site, and possibly even hack into a network or bank or anything that is on the networks.So if your worried about your child, all you can do is teach your child about the dangers of the internet, and give your child the freedom of choice. Hope and pray he or she doesn't become a youtube video star.
