Hi. Since you're in UMD Autoload mode, you need to configure that in the PSP Settings. To do this, turn off your PSP and remove your UMD. Now, turn it back on and it won't autoload your UMD since it wasn't there anymore.
Now, go to "Settings" and scroll down to "System Settings" and press X. Scroll down again the selection until you see "UMD Auto-Start" and press X. At the right side will appear the options "ON" and "OFF". Select "OFF" and press O button several times to go back to main screen.
Insert your UMD. Now, try playing games from Memory Stick. You may have to turn off your PSP and turn it on again to finally play homebrew...
I hope this helps...

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!

      Requires PSP system software version of 2.0 or higher. Visit PSP System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.

    • WLAN switch
      Make sure the WLAN switch on the left side of the PSP system is turned on so that the PSP system can connect to the internet.

  2. In the XMB™ home menu select icn_network.gif (Network) > icn_www.gif (Internet Browser) and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.

  3. Use the up and down buttons to select the address bar and then press the icn_btnx_color.gif button to display the on-screen keyboard.

    For more information, see Using the On-screen Keyboard.

  5. Select a connection and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.

To close the Internet connection:
  1. With a web page on the screen, press the icn_btncircle_color.gif button.

  3. The internet browser will close.

If you have issues connecting to the Internet, you may wish to troubleshoot your Infrastructure mode connection.

The "home" button on my PSP does not work


I have the same problem.. I cant put YES on home and my R button isnt working either.. but I've noticed that if I push down the power button to the HOLD lvl and then put it again to the medium lvl it works like the R button -_-'' ..

My R button is my hold button


Acutally is not like R=hold, the fact is, your R button is more likely to be semi-automatic or fully automatic now. Even on a fully working psp, when you press select or home button while you holding the L button or R button, the same thing will appear as your own psp.

Let you know a temporary solution, hold the R or L button or both firmly for a minute, your psp might come back to normal for a few seconds or something.

Look for some professional repair service to get your L or R repaired.

Let me know if this works.
