operate properly.
US
Use and handling
• Use in a well-lit area and keep the screen a safe distance from your face.
• Avoid prolonged use of the PSP™ system. To help prevent eyestrain, take a
break of about 15 minutes during every hour of play.
• If you experience any of the following health problems, discontinue use of the
system immediately. If symptoms persist, consult with your physician.
– Dizziness, nausea, fatigue or symptoms similar to motion sickness
– Discomfort or pain in a part of the body, such as eyes, ears, hands or arms
• Keep the system and accessories out of the reach of small children.
Small children may swallow the Memory Stick Duo™ or wrap the cables/
straps around themselves, which may inflict injury or cause an accident or a
malfunction.
• Do not use the system while driving or riding a bicycle. Looking at the screen
or operating the system while driving an automobile or riding a bicycle may
result in a traffic accident.
• Take extra care when using the system while walking.
• Be careful not to pinch your fingers when closing the disc cover.
Precautions
11
• Do not use the system or accessories near water.
• Use only attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
• Do not use the headphones if they cause discomfort to your skin.
If the supplied headphones cause discomfort to your skin, discontinue use
immediately. If symptoms do not subside even after discontinuing use, seek
medical attention.
• Do not expose the system or accessories to high temperatures, high humidity,
or direct sunlight.
• Do not leave the system or accessories in a car with the windows closed
(particularly in summer).
• Do not expose the system or accessories to dust, smoke or steam.
• Do not allow liquid or small particles to get into the system or accessories.
• Do not place the system or accessories on surfaces that are tilted, unstable or
subject to vibration.
• Do not throw or drop the system or accessories, or subject the devices to
strong physical shock. Handle the analog stick with care.
• Do not forcibly twist the PSP™ system or expose the system to strong
physical shock during gameplay, as doing so can damage the system or cause
the disc cover to open, ejecting the disc.
• Do not put heavy objects on the system or accessories.
• Do not touch or insert foreign objects into the connectors of the system or
accessories.
• Do not place the system close to items with a magnetic strip, such as credit
cards.
• Do not touch the system or AC adaptor for an extended period of time while
in use. Depending on the conditions of use, the system or AC adaptor may
reach temperatures of 40° C/104° F or more. Extended contact under these
conditions may cause low-temperature burns*.
* Low-temperature burns are burns that occur when the skin is in contact with objects of
relatively low temperatures (40°C or more/104°F or more) for an extended period of time.
AC adaptor and AC power cord use
• Do not touch the plug of the AC power cord with wet hands.
• Do not touch the AC power cord, AC adaptor or the system, if connected to
an electrical outlet, during an electrical storm.
• Do not use a power source other than the supplied battery pack, AC adaptor
and AC power cord.
12
Precautions
• Do not allow dust or foreign matter to build up around the system or accessory
connectors. If there is dust or foreign matter on the system's connectors or the
AC power cord, wipe it off with a dry cloth before connecting. Dust or other
matter on the connectors can result in fire or electrical shock.
• Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet and remove the battery
pack from the system before cleaning or when you do not intend to use the
system for an extended period of time.
• Protect the AC power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at
plugs, convenience receptacles and the point where they exit from the system.
• When disconnecting the AC power cord, hold it by the plug and pull straight
out from the electrical socket. Never pull by the cord and do not pull at an
angle.
• Do not use the system to play games or video when the system is covered with
any type of fabric. If you want to pause or temporarily store the system while
playing games or video, put the system in sleep mode before placing it in the
pouch. Also do not use the AC adaptor when covered with fabric. This may
help to avoid overheating.
• Do not connect the AC power cord to a voltage transformer or inverter.
Connecting the AC power cord to a voltage transformer for overseas travel or
an inverter for use in an automobile may cause heat to build up in the AC
adaptor and may cause burns or a malfunction.
US
LCD screen
• Red, blue or green spots (bright spots) or black spots (dark spots) may appear
in certain locations on the LCD screen. The appearance of such spots is a
normal occurrence associated with LCD screens and is not a sign of a
malfunction. LCD screens are made using highly precise technology.
However, a very small number of dark pixels or continuously lit pixels exist
on each screen. Also, a distorted image may remain on the screen for several
seconds after the system has been turned off.
• Direct exposure to sunlight may damage the system's LCD screen. Be careful
when using the system outdoors or near a window.
• When using the system in a cold environment, you may notice shadows on
the graphics or the screen may appear darker than usual. This is not a
malfunction, and the screen will return to normal when the temperature goes
up.
• Do not leave still images displayed on the screen for an extended period of
time. This may cause a faint image to be left permanently on the screen.
Precautions
13
Memory Stick Duo™
For best results, follow these guidelines:
• Do not touch the connector area (A) with your hands or with metal objects.
• Do not press hard when writing on the memo area (B).
• Do not insert a Memory Stick Duo™ into a device designed to accept only
standard-size Memory Stick™ media.
• Do not use or store a Memory Stick Duo™ in the following:
– Places subject to high temperatures, such as in a hot vehicle
– Locations exposed to direct sunlight
– Locations that are very humid or conducive to corrosion
• Use the supplied case to carry or store the Memory Stick Duo™.
x Recorded data
Do not use the Memory Stick Duo™ in the following ways, as doing so may
result in data loss or corruption:
• Removing the Memory Stick Duo™ or turning off the system while it is
loading or saving data or being formatted.
• Using it in a location that is exposed to static electricity or electrical
interference.
If, for any reason, software or data loss or corruption occurs, it is usually
not possible to recover the software or data. It is recommended that you
regularly back up software and data. Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
and its subsidiaries and affiliates will not be held liable for any damages or
injury in the case of software or data loss or corruption.
In accordance with copyright law, no recorded data may be used for
purposes other than personal enjoyment without permission from the
copyright holder.
14
Precautions
Pouch and wrist strap
• If you want to pause or temporarily store the system while playing games or
video, put the system in sleep mode before placing it in the pouch. This may
help to avoid overheating.
• Put both the PSP™ system and the remote control in hold mode to help
prevent unintended operation.
• Keep the pouch and wrist strap out of the reach of small children.
Never disassemble the system or supplied accessories
US
Use the PSP™ system and accessories according to the instructions in this
manual. No authorization for the analysis or modification of the system, or the
analysis and use of its circuit configurations, is provided. Disassembling will
void the system warranty. Additionally, there is a risk of fire, electrical shock
or malfunction. The LCD screen, in particular, contains dangerous, highvoltage parts, and the laser beam for reading UMD™ may cause visual
impairment if exposed directly to the eyes.
Overseas use
Depending on the country, there are limitations on the use of certain types of
radio waves. In some cases, use of the system may lead to a fine or other
penalty.
Moisture condensation
If the PSP™ system or UMD™ is brought directly from a cold location to a
warm one, moisture may condense on the lens inside the system or on the
UMD™. Should this occur, the system may not operate properly. In this case,
remove the UMD™ and turn off and unplug the system. Do not put the UMD™
back in until the moisture evaporates (this may take several hours). If the
system still does not operate properly, contact our technical support line at
1-800-345-7669 for assistance.
UMD™ handling
• Do not touch the opening on the rear of the disc (recorded surface of the disc)
with your fingers.
• Do not allow dust, sand, foreign objects or other types of dirt to get on the
disc.
Precautions
15
• If the UMD™ becomes dirty, gently wipe the exterior and recorded surfaces
of the UMD™ using a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or other chemicals.
Cleaning
For safety reasons, unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet and
remove the battery pack from the system before cleaning.
x Cleaning the exterior surface
Wipe gently with a damp cloth, and then dry the surface. Do not use solvents or
other chemicals to clean the exterior of the PSP™ system.
x Cleaning the LCD screen
Wipe gently with a soft cloth.
x Cleaning the connectors
• Do not use when the connectors of the system, AC adaptor or the AC power
cord are not clean. Remove the dirt with a dry cloth or cotton swab. If used
when dirty, the flow of electrical current may be obstructed.
• If the headphones or remote control connectors become dirty, this could cause
noise or interruptions in sound. Wipe the connectors with a dry, soft cloth to
keep in clean condition.
16
Precautions
