If it is a UMD: Hit SELECT to access the VSH menu. Set UMD Mode to NORMAL Try to start the game again
If it is an ISO/CSO: Press SELECT to access the VSH Menu. Change UMD Mode to m33 driver
If that does not work: It may need to be patched. Go to and look for the video about PATCHING ISO FILES.
Once it is patched, you should be able to play it.

After pressing the audio button on my psp the screen would go black and white from bottom to top then would go back to normal what i tried is to take out the memory card and tr to press the audio...

Hi, I've had the same problems for about a month now. I have a psp fat (psp-1000) with cfw. 5.50. I was playing ZHP unlosing ranger when the same thing happened.
I use the lowest brightness setting to lengthen game play time. I keep using the audio button (The one you hold and turns the sounds mute or back.. right?) for the game then when i reset my game (press home and start the gameover..) the brightness suddenly keeps on changing even making the whole screen black. After 5 minutes? it stops but then when i press the down or square, triangle button the brightness changes sometimes thats the only thing the button does.. i found a temporary fix for this, i put it sleep mode then turn it on again and it stops.. the buttons go back to normal, for a while.
It goes on and on even with other games. It just stops after 10 minutes later or more than starts happening again everytime the brightness or audio button is pressed.
We scanned it for viruses on a computer and it just kept on blinking everytime it responded to the scan. No virus were found but after that when we disconnected it from the computer the brightness problem stopped for a good long time.. we avoided pressing the brightness and audio buttons. but recently its happening again.
and now just got worse. I was playing Socom Fireteam, and when you accidentaly go to the start menu, you have to press "select" to exit and continue the game. But the "select" button wont work!
so i quit the game and startover.. when this happened for the 3rd time. When i pressed "home" button and was asked if i really wanted to exit the game i couldnt move to "yes" and couldnt press the "O" or "X" buttons.
So i turned off my psp and when it went back on, I couldnt press anything anymore. except, the volume buttons and select (the vsh menu appears)
I searched for help from the internet, found "disable your vsh menu" remedy.
It worked! but when i played the game, the "cwcheat" menu keeps on appearing (seplugin that appears when you press select button). It wouldnt stop >.<
So we disabled that too.
Now playing God of War Ghost of Sparta, and one part, the start menu kept on appearing! we'd close it so that we could push one of the levers in the game but then it pauses the game again.. it stopped after a while. then it happened again only slight.
Found a comment on a "select button problem" and it said that it was the:
"parts that were Ribbon style, with it was the start and select button and the volume/sound" he had that parts?
found same problems around the net, some posts from 2009.
found decent posts and solutions here:
the best one says buy a new "flex bar" or "home bar". It goes by many names, but it's the metal bar that has all of the bottom row buttons on it (home -> start) It's usually under $10 USD and obviously the right thing to do.
got another comment that says it worked from him when he bought one himself.
Glad I found others, and that I could share this.. wish it makes things better.
Hope it works out for all of us!
Another thing, Merry Christmas!

My psp files gone

I assume you have a PSP with customize firmware.

1. Turn on your PSP and press the "SELECT" button and the VSH Menu will appear.

2. Scroll down to USB Device and change the setting into "Memory Stick".
(Use the up & down directional button to scroll and use the left & right directional button to change the setting.)

3. Scroll down to UMD ISO MODE and change the setting to "SONY NP9660".

4. After you change the setting EXIT to the main console and restart your PSP.

If this solution did not work come back and we will try other solutions.

My psp hang when i hold it it appears m33 vsh menu and nothing works except the vol

My psp did the same thing. 1. Turn off psp. 2. Hold down R trigger while turning psp back on. This should take you to the M33 Recovery Menu. 3. Go to "Configuration" press X then go down to "Use VshMenu" press X so that it is Disabled. This should fix it. Go up to back then down to exit. If this doesnt work or if it does work please comment back to let me know. I like to know that people actually read my posts. Thanx. Gonzo Dacompo

How do i reset my whole psp? even if it wont turn on

Hi there, Please turn off your psp. Before it turns on please hold on "R button". After that you will see a black screen. Please choose configuration, then choose "VSH MENU" (it should be enabled). Choose exit afterwards. Automatically your psp will reset. It will reboot.

From then you can have your psp reset anytime your psp was on. Simply push "select button" and choose reset. That's it!

Psp menu problem

Ok, your psp CPU clock speed is set to low speed.. 2 way to change:

1. If your psp has VSH menu enable.. : press "select" button, a small window will appear, otherwise its set to "disable".. See at "CPU CLOCK XMB" must set as "default". use left-right d-pad to change it. if vsh menu is disable you can try 2nd way.

2. Boot PSP under Recovery menu ( Hold R-trigger when turn on your psp ).. under M33 menu select "CPU Speed" then press "X", select "Speed in XMB" and "Speed in UMD" to setting as "Default" by pressing "X" button a few times.

Hopefully this help.! Pls post back should you need additional information, and also Show your Appreciation, to help other USER.

Psp freezer

hi. hope this would help.

actually i also encountered such before. There are lots of games I copied from a friend which are not playing at all. Or which my psp does not read. All I did was press SELECT while on the home menu. Then a special options will appear. It's the M33 VSH MENU (Well, at least that's how mine reads.) Anyway, move to the UMD ISO MODE and press the left and right buttons until you get to choose Sony NP9660 and try playing gods of war now on your unit. There....hope I helped.!
