My psp's start button is notm working properly. It's intermittent though

This can happen after a long period of inactivity. Please do the following:

Press it a couple of times at different angles, as you would during gameplay (if it were one of the directional buttons or joystick) it should work fine.

During gameplay myscreen for ps3 flickers different colors then cuts out..comes back on in five seconds than repeats until I trun the system off and restart.???? wtf??!?!?!

This is due the the cable lead you are using. try and unplug the cable at both ends and blow out and built up dust. If that fails you will need to replace the AV / HD-MI lead you are using.
Also try using a different T.V
Any further questions feel free to ask.

(to turn off properly the PSP, hold the "ON/OFF" button for mostly 10secs or more) Usually, when you turn on your PSP while holding the R Trigger, it should go directly to your Recovery Menu (black screen with configuration menus, etc...). If it doesn't do that while holding R, maybe there' s something wrong with your PSP... but if it does, to turn your WMA on, got to recovery Menu>Registry Hacks, then your will see there the options...for activate WMA, Activate Flash player, just press X on those and it should be fine...

Cant get psp to work

Try Holding the R trigger and turn the power on at the same time. This puts you in a different mode. Press the display brightness button to see the version. Power off and back on again to see if that resets it. This is only a guess I would appreciate at least a thanks for trying.
