Psp menu problem

Well, here's what happens when i start it up...

1. starts up fine for about 5-6 secs
2. A glitch in the screen appears ( like a tv with bad reception) then goes back to normal image
3. When i move to the categories (Game/Music Etc.) its very slow
4. Once i try to start a game/music/video, it freezes


This causes me to move quickly if i want to play a game. Although, once i actually get to START the game, it runs perfectly fine, like it used to.

If you or anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, ill just go back to the person who hacked it for me. Ok, thanks.

Ok, your psp CPU clock speed is set to low speed.. 2 way to change:

1. If your psp has VSH menu enable.. : press "select" button, a small window will appear, otherwise its set to "disable".. See at "CPU CLOCK XMB" must set as "default". use left-right d-pad to change it. if vsh menu is disable you can try 2nd way.

2. Boot PSP under Recovery menu ( Hold R-trigger when turn on your psp ).. under M33 menu select "CPU Speed" then press "X", select "Speed in XMB" and "Speed in UMD" to setting as "Default" by pressing "X" button a few times.

Hopefully this help.! Pls post back should you need additional information, and also Show your Appreciation, to help other USER.

After pressing the audio button on my psp the screen would go black and white from bottom to top then would go back to normal what i tried is to take out the memory card and tr to press the audio...


Hi, I've had the same problems for about a month now. I have a psp fat (psp-1000) with cfw. 5.50. I was playing ZHP unlosing ranger when the same thing happened.
I use the lowest brightness setting to lengthen game play time. I keep using the audio button (The one you hold and turns the sounds mute or back.. right?) for the game then when i reset my game (press home and start the gameover..) the brightness suddenly keeps on changing even making the whole screen black. After 5 minutes? it stops but then when i press the down or square, triangle button the brightness changes sometimes thats the only thing the button does.. i found a temporary fix for this, i put it sleep mode then turn it on again and it stops.. the buttons go back to normal, for a while.
It goes on and on even with other games. It just stops after 10 minutes later or more than starts happening again everytime the brightness or audio button is pressed.
We scanned it for viruses on a computer and it just kept on blinking everytime it responded to the scan. No virus were found but after that when we disconnected it from the computer the brightness problem stopped for a good long time.. we avoided pressing the brightness and audio buttons. but recently its happening again.
and now just got worse. I was playing Socom Fireteam, and when you accidentaly go to the start menu, you have to press "select" to exit and continue the game. But the "select" button wont work!
so i quit the game and startover.. when this happened for the 3rd time. When i pressed "home" button and was asked if i really wanted to exit the game i couldnt move to "yes" and couldnt press the "O" or "X" buttons.
So i turned off my psp and when it went back on, I couldnt press anything anymore. except, the volume buttons and select (the vsh menu appears)
I searched for help from the internet, found "disable your vsh menu" remedy.
It worked! but when i played the game, the "cwcheat" menu keeps on appearing (seplugin that appears when you press select button). It wouldnt stop >.<
So we disabled that too.
Now playing God of War Ghost of Sparta, and one part, the start menu kept on appearing! we'd close it so that we could push one of the levers in the game but then it pauses the game again.. it stopped after a while. then it happened again only slight.
Found a comment on a "select button problem" and it said that it was the:
"parts that were Ribbon style, with it was the start and select button and the volume/sound" he had that parts?
found same problems around the net, some posts from 2009.
found decent posts and solutions here:
http://forums.qj.net/psp-general-help/151111-psp-slim-start-button-stuck.html
the best one says buy a new "flex bar" or "home bar". It goes by many names, but it's the metal bar that has all of the bottom row buttons on it (home -> start) It's usually under $10 USD and obviously the right thing to do.
got another comment that says it worked from him when he bought one himself.
Glad I found others, and that I could share this.. wish it makes things better.
Hope it works out for all of us!
Another thing, Merry Christmas!

Play psp games on tv via composite/component av cable


you will need to have:

1.a psp slim with custom firmware 3.80 or 3.90.
2.composite/component av cable.
3.installer plugin file FUSA that can be sourced in the internet e.g. qj.net.
4.memory stick pro duo with 2 gigabytes capacity.

steps:

1.source the FUSA installer file.
2.once sourced,extract it to your pc desktop using 'winrar'.
3.connect pc to psp via usb.
4.upon extraction,copy or drag all four files (prx and txt) to the 'seplugins' folder on the memory stick (ms0:/seplugins/).
5.if you don't have the 'seplugins' folder on the root of the memory stick,create it.
6.exit usb connection and completely turn off psp,then turn it back on while pressing the 'R' button to go to recovery menu.
7.on recovery menu,choose and click plugins,set the FUSA plugin to 'enable',then exit recovery menu.
8.you can also activate the plugin on the FUSA menu itself,and this is better recommended.
9.connect now psp to crt tv using component av cable.
10.load a game and after loading it,just right before clicking the 'start' button to begin play,exactly at this point,simultaneously press on the volume - and + buttons to bring out the FUSA menu.
11.after a few seconds,the FUSA menu will appear on the psp screen,change the settings accordingly,exit FUSA menu and start the game to play it on your tv.

*many games or emulators will work but not all as the FUSA file is still in its beta stage,you need to figure out which one will work or not through trial and error.use caution,this guide works but no guarantees.
*used a 2 gb memory stick pro duo as 4 gb didn't work.
*used on an interlace only tv and not progressive or crt/non-flat/lcd/plastma/hdtv's.

thanks.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

PSP SCREEN FLICKERS AND GOES SLOW IN MAIN MENU


Ok...this sounds crazy but it happened to one of my PSPs. I updated the firmware on my system and the menu started stalling and taking a long time to respond. I shut the PSP all the way down....holding the power button until the light shuts off (about 4 or 5 seconds)...Hold the R button and power the system on again (you should be in recovery mode)...go to CPU speed and make sure it is either set at "Default" or "222"....I belive 222 is the default setting....also make sure the UMD is also set at "Default" or 222....if you're going to use the UMD.
