Does this happen with all games or just one. If it happens with all games then try moving the console into an area where it is better ventilated. The best way to do this is to prop the thing straight up and on a hard surface (no carpet).

Have you tried to patch your game to see if it fix it? Sometimes repair or patching can solve issues.
Latest patch is 1.5, but you have to have patch 1.3 before you can update to 1.5.

My psp scree is always dark

This typically happens during gameplay to prevent the image from burning into the screen. You can simply hit select to brighten the screen for normal game play.

If this is happening when you turn on your system then there is a problem with the system. There are so many different reasons for this that it would be easier to contact Sony directly.

The Sony number is usually listed on the back of video game booklets and covers.

Good luck to you and Happy Gaming!

Xbox 360 flickers across screen

it is your av cable however the components in the cable get a small static boost when u are using your controller so it becomes an intermittent fault ie;....when in game vidios or watching dvds, u rarely use the controller so u dont see the flickering and u only see it when in game play because u are in constant contact with the controlls and the components inside the av cable recieve a small static boost causing the interference.
