Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
When I turn on my PSP and it goes into the main menu and the screen starts to flicker and when I navigate around it goes really slow. When I load into a UMD game it play fine though (from a UMD disk or off the memory card), it plays at a normal pace and the screen doesn't flicker at all. I have recently had my PSP moded and thought this might be an issue. Although for a week after the mod the PSP worked fine even loading games off of my memory stick. The PSP is a slim and only a month old, now that it is moded I think I am also screwed for my warranty. Can anyone give me some advice?
Ok...this sounds crazy but it happened to one of my PSPs. I updated the firmware on my system and the menu started stalling and taking a long time to respond. I shut the PSP all the way down....holding the power button until the light shuts off (about 4 or 5 seconds)...Hold the R button and power the system on again (you should be in recovery mode)...go to CPU speed and make sure it is either set at "Default" or "222"....I belive 222 is the default setting....also make sure the UMD is also set at "Default" or 222....if you're going to use the UMD.

Turn it off and then when restarting it hold down the R button. This will put it into recovery mode then go down to CPU options and change the XMB Cpu speed back to default it probably was at 20 or something and that is not enough to run the psp properly hope this helps

I had exactly the same issue (screen flickering at boot and very slow boot speed and all around slow navigation speed on the psp menu, but the games where playable).
This is how to solve it:
Shut down the psp entirely by pressing the power switch up for a few secs until its really off.Press the R button and kep it pressed while turning on the console.You are now in the recovery menu, go down to CPU options and change the XMB and CPU speed to Default/DefaultExit, reboot and enjoy your recovered PSP.

Power down the psp complete by holding up the power button until switch is down,then hold the R trigger while turning on the psp for menu and set XMD to default [u may set it to 333 but still be the same as default]

lol you guys have to google once in your lives, go to your XMB and press select then you will see something with XMB clock speed. most likely your speed will be in the low values. just change the value to 222 mhz or higher and your problem will be fixed
