Re: psp

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!!

When I hit home it mutes my PSP

So you are having problem with your HOME button?

Try this (you're working with M33 CFW installed device, please note that risk of bricked is 50%. It's recommended that technicians service are needed.):
1. Get the latest M33 firmware update from
3. And there's guide that will bring you to the firmware update.
4. Read the instructions carefully and you'll successfully update your PSP to the latest firmware.
5. Please note that before you upgrading your system your battery must be fully charged until 100%.

Any questions? Feel free to ask me =]

Select and home button malfunction.

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.

Keeps turning off during play

Can you tell me if this only happens when a game is in the UMD drive or does this happen regardless.

Wet psp volume and home does not work, can not recharge battery

Your PSP is bricked, and unfortunately this cannot be fixed because its a hardware brick. The PSP needs to be replaced.

PSP screen wont go on

What happened was that the new game was doing the update before you said no. It was removing the memory from the psp and when you try to turn it back on, there is no memory for it to start. The only that can be done is that it has to going into the shop for repair/exchange....there is nothing you can do to get back the psp working again. It also happened to me and Sony explained the problem.
