Hi Zoicno,


This is a classic problem with the Power switch board.  It may seem like a problem with the home button, but the Button bar that the Home button resides on connects to the Power Switch board inside.  I can repair this for you for $37 including return shpping.  Contact me at   I run the Playstation Clinic at

How can i downgrade my ver 6.10 software psp????

Hello there

Download MPH Downgrader and Firmware version you want(e.g 1.50) to the Windows-based computer. Connect the PSP Slim to the computer's USB port using the USB connector. Transfer the two programs to the main folder of the PSP Slim. Disconnect the PSP Slim from the computer's USB hub when the transfer is complete.

Turn on the PSP Slim. Go to the Settings/USB Connection in the Home menu and select the EBOOT.PBP file in the PSP\GAME\UPDATE update folder. Extract the MPH Downgrader zip file to the root folder of the PSP. Click OK using the X button if you are prompted that this will replace some files.

Go to Photo/Memory Stick in the Home menu. Wait as the screen goes black and numbers appear. Wait two minutes and then press and hold the power switch until the PSP Slim turns off. Release the power switch.

Wait as the PSP Slim turns on and reboots. Go to Game/Memory Stick in the Home menu and select PSPS Update version 1.50. Press the X button to start the update.

Wait as the update finishes and presents an error message. Press the O button to restart the PSP.

When I deleted home on my pS3 I got corrupt files

  1. Insert the PlayStation 3 memory card that has the corrupt file into the memory card slot of your PlayStation 3 console.
  2. Step 2 Turn on the PlayStation 3 without a disc in the console or with the loading lid open. A menu screen will then appear on your television.
  3. Step 3 Scroll through the options of the main menu using the down button on your directional pad and press the "X" button when you get to the "Browser" option.
  4. Step 4 Click on the icon that shows the memory card that you inserted by pressing the "X" button. You will now be able to view all of your memory card files. Locate the corrupt file and click on it with your "X" button.
  5. Step 5 Scroll through the list of options that appear and select the "Delete" option by pressing your "X" button. The file should now be deleted. Restart the PlayStation 3 and go back to your memory card to make sure the file was deleted.   NOTE WITH THIS IT WORK PROPERLY....

Home Button Problem

You button may have a malfunction where the psp thinks it is being pressed. My analog stick does the same thing. the only real solution is to replace the psp, because if you fix it your running the chance of it happening again.

While playing games on my psp, it randomly shows the quit game home screen without having pressed the home button.

Your PSP needs to be fixed. The home button might be stuck. No software solution for this, it's hardware related.

Program termination suddenly pops up while playing

This window also pops up if you open up the umd lid, and if it just randomly appears it might be that the home botton is jammed up or that the lid is not closed tightly enough and any vibrations would make the system think that the lid opened.
