I used to have the same problem. Unfortunately, this is because your PSP has become physically damaged. The music button has been permanently locked in the pressed position, and whenever you hit Home, it thinks you are releasing the Music button, which mutes the system. This specific problem I have dealt with personally. I assume the other two are similar in nature. Unfortunately, all you can do about this is to get it fixed (somehow...), by a new psp, or learn to deal with it :(

If fixing and dealing with it is not an option, why not use it as an excuse to pick up a psp go when it drops? or if the lack of UMD is a turnoff, maybe a slim (if you don't have that already)

Sorry dude.

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:
http://forums.qj.net/psp-general-help/151111-psp-slim-start-button-stuck.html
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!

PSP select button autopresses.please help its quiet importent.


It means that there is a problem with the flex that controls the select button. I would suggest open it (if you can) and see if it's dirty or folded. If this is a PSP slim then the flex is most likely the problem

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.

My psp keep going to home by itself.


When this happens, it's because the home button on the inside is jammed. Usually it's because it's dirty or sticky and sticks down [or presses itself]. You can try opening it and cleaning under the home button. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the home/volume/start/select circuit ribbon cable. If you're not comfortable opening it, check the following company -- they would repair something like this for $29

Luckly since you have the 1000 it wont be anything to fix. just take off the front faceplate and clean it out. it sounds hard but really is not. here is a video of a kid doing it on youtube

    2. Highlight [Backlight Auto-Off] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    3. Select a time interval and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button to save. Select OFF if you wish to disable this feature.

    The brightness setting can only be used when the PSP system is plugged into an electrical outlet with an AC adaptor.

hi, maybe you are accidentally hitting the mute button and home button... try putting the psp on hold (you press down, instead of up on the power switch) and that will lock all your buttons!!
