Re: psp black screen

Hi Azeem123,


Your PSP is Bricked.  You need to send it to Sony to get your problem resolved. The contact information is listed below.

I know this is terrible news for you.  When you were downloading the Flash0, something disturbed the download and corrupted the PSP. This is what Bricked you PSP.  Brick refers to your psp and it is dead until Sony fixes it, no more worth than a brick.

Themes that i downloaded,where should i put it??because i putted it in the themes but it is not there when i want to use it as my theme

You have to first download the theme off your computer, you cant get it from your psp's web browser. Then after you connect the psp to your pc, you have to make a new folder in the root of your psp memory card named "THEME". All you have to copy into the THEME folder is the .ptf file. The .ptf file is the theme. Then after you should be able to see it in your psp. Hope I helped!

PSP wont Turn On. =(

well if your psp won't turn on then the only way to fix it without buying another psp is to make a pandora battery and magic memory stick or buy a pandora battery from the pandora battery places the psp into service mode and the magic memory stick has the installation files to recover the psp through the recovery menu. I suggest using at least a 2 GB memory stick at least or purchasing the pandora kit fromm it will fix you guaranteed.

I am not able to download themes in my psp

You don't have to create a themes folder on the on the memory stick duo, it is already created on the memory stick duo, all you have to do is to just connect your psp to your computer and activate the USB connection under settings on your psp, if you have firmware update 5.00 or higher, there is a feature called USB auto connect under system setiings which automatically switches to USB mode when you plug in a USB cable to your psp and your computer.

1. connect your PSP to your computer, go to MY COMPUTER on your desktop and click on the drive that represents your PSP.

2. double click your PSP drive and navigate to PSP folder and select THEME under the folder.

3. Now copy and paste this link to your browser to download many themes for your PSP:

4. select the file you want, click on download, depending on your browser, click SAVE when you are prompted to RUN or SAVE the downloaded file. Please select the PSP drive under MY COMPUTER and select PSP, navigate to the THEME folder and save the file to this folder.
Now disconnect the PSP from your computer and select THEME SETTINGS on your PSP, select THEME, navigate to the available themes and you will see a preview of the theme, select apply to use the new theme.

To use the .CTF Themes you need to download the plugin called cxmb.prx 

1. Download the plugin (cxmb.prx)
2. Extract the file and place into root of your MS0:/ 
3. Put the theme file (any name you like :)) under MS0:/PSP/THEME/ 
4. Enable cxmb.prx in Recovery (under VSH) 
5. Go to Settings -> Theme Settings -> Theme to select your CTF themes 
6. System will reboot to take effect

To Use the .PTF Themes download it first then put it inside ms:/PSP/THEME. if the folder is not there please create it. To apply the theme on your PSP, go to “Settings” => “Theme Settings” => “Theme”.
