I'm assuming that when you say "chipped" you mean "hacked"

If this is the case and you have an M33 firmware, you have 2 options.
1. get it reflashed or update it to a newer firmware which will reset all of your settings.

2. press select and at the top of the screen there will be a menu that you can change 2 cpu speeds. play with those settings until the games play smoothly.
If that doesn't work your only option is choice #1.

Are you sure your PSP has been chipped? If it has, check the file type of the game. Because some PSPs play some game types. Thanks for using FixYa.

My psp works really good but when i try to play games or movies it starts to slow down and flicker


1. Set “UMD Mode” to M33 driver NO UMD
The PSP firmware version was 3.71 M33 but is also tested with higher versions like 3.8 M33. These firmware versions should have the UMD mode to M33 NO UMD.

To set the following you need to go to the Configuration Page. To go there you need to:
i. Turn off your PSP
ii. Press and hold the R button. While doing that slide and hold the power button up. This would turn on your PSP. You should hold until the black screen appears saying “M33 Recovery Menu Configuration”
iii. If the PSP just turns on to the normal menu, just repeat the two steps above.

2. Set “Use VshMenu” to Disabled.
It is also in the configuration page. Use the steps above and you should be able to find it.
Now after these two steps, if you continue no further, your PS would run faster – but only for the menu screen. The menu would be fast and really responsive. However, try playing a game. You would notice that loading is still slow and the gameplay is still played in slow motion


3. Set the CPU speed to Default.
Now this is really important. The CPU may not really be used when playing music or in the menu screen but its very important when you play games.
There are two settings you need to adjust. Speed in XMB and Speed in UMD/ISO. For us normal users we just need to set these two to “Default”.
After this, your PSP should be running ok. However, I recommend that you do another step which would also help the performance of your PSP.

4. Free up memory from your Memory Stick.
You can do this using two methods. One, you could connect your PSP to your PC using a USB cable. Two, you could remove your memory stick and use a card reader. I prefer the second method but you may use any of the two.


Method Two: Remove your memory stick and use a card reader.
Freeing up memory is easy, if you know what files to remove. As my friend is not really using her PSP for music and videos, majority of her files are game files. What she does is that she just puts games that she really plays. I recommend doing the same for your PSP.
Game files are located at the folder named “ISO”. The game files have a .CSO file name extension. You don’t need to delete them. Just transfer them to your hard disk. That way, when you want to play them again, you just have to transfer them back to your memory stick.
But if you have music and video files that take up much space, I recommend that you look into those first. Normally you would like to have at least 500MB of free disk space. You’d need the space for your game saves.

My friends have done the steps above with ease and have solved their slow PSP problems. Most of them, if not all, had to do all four mentioned above. The first three usually solves the problem.

I just got my psp for christmas brand new and it worked perfect until today i played it this morning and now when i try to play my games it doesnt load up


Have you checked if the batteries ran out? Try to plugin the adapter and see if it makes any changes. If having donee so to no avail, then just avail the warranty since this is a brand new unit. Its always wise to return or exchange it before you get to experience more trouble with in in the next days.

The games turn into slow motion, what should i do?


this happens because your games are scrached on the in side. the way to fix this is to pop open the casing and wash it with a dry cloth and some windex. if this dosnt work open up your psp and clean the disk port and clean that with a cloth. dont use cleaning products because it will seep into the the psp and destroy the psp.
