Adobe's Flash Player media software runs on a wide variety of computers as well as mobile devices, including Sony's PSP portable gaming device. The player comes with an updated build of the system software and if you don't have the newest version you can download it directly from the PSP system's network connection. If Flash is not operating correctly, ensure the player is turned on from the system's browser settings.
Download and Use
Turn the PSP on and highlight the "Settings" section of the main menu. Scroll down and open the "System Settings" icon.
Scroll down and select "System Information" from the list. Note the number listed under "System Software." Versions 2.70 and newer have the Flash Player built in. If you already have an updated version, you can skip the update process.
Ensure the system has an active Internet connection. If it does not, set one up using the "Network Settings" section of the Settings menu.
Select "System Update" from the Settings menu and choose "Update via Internet." Select a network connection in range and follow the onscreen instructions to update the system. The update will restart the system, and may require you to connect the PSP to a power source before completion.
Highlight "Network" on the main menu and open the "Internet Browser" icon. Navigate to a Web page that contains Flash content. When prompted with the "Do you want to run the plugin embedded in this page" message, select "Yes" to begin using Flash.
Turn Flash On or Off
Open the "Internet Browser" in the Network section of the main menu. Select the "Tools" icon from the menu. If the menu is not active, press "Triangle" to open it.
Open the "Settings" option and then select "View Settings." This lists all the available multimedia settings for the browser.
Scroll down to "Flash" and press "X." Use the directional pad to toggle the Flash Player on an off. Flash content will only display properly while the player is activated.
