The New PSP 2000 is different than the original in the way the Directional buttons finction. i have not gone as far to dig under the blister layer of the Directional pad, but I imagine you have debris between the direction cross and the circuit inside the PSP. You will need to remove, Battery, warranty label, 2 *****s in the battery compartment, two *****s on either side of the USB port, 1 ***** under the volume button bar, and 2 ***** on the back opossite side of the battery compartment. Clean the back of the cross Driectional button pad.

Do you mean the four buttons or the joystick? If it's the joystick it could be the piece of jelly/plastic that connects it to the motherboard

Maybe the disk isnt read rite by your psp. maybe the disk is wrong?
Or it could just be that you dont use the directional buttons for gameplay, just the analog stick. XD

I really need help to hack my psp 3000 version 6.2.. can someone plz help me..??=(


Hi rosyhini_95, Based onyour concern, I suggest trying the following steps: 1. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USBcable. 2. Press the "home" button on thePSP --> atthe lower left of the screen you can see the home button. 3. Use the left-right directional buttons tofind "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection"on the PSP. 4. Press the "X" button, your PSPshould display "USB Connection". 5. Please wait until your computer tells youthat a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic harddrive, usually E: or F: 6. Click on the drive letter thatcorresponds to the PSP unit. 7. place the h.bin file in your MS root andthe chickHEN folder with images in PSP/PHOTO on your memory stick pro duo. -> if you don't have that folderPSP/PHOTO don't worry just create it and place the folder in there. -> you would put the Slim ChickHEN folderin PSP/PHOTO so it looks like PSP/PHOTO/ChickHEN with the pretty egg gifsinside. 8. Now you need to make sure that you havePSP Firmware 5.03 installed. If you dont have you can download it here: 9. Ok now in the PSP XMB go to Photo's /Memory stick and then the chickHEN folder and wait! If it works you'll see afew colours flash and then your PSP is rebooting itself loading up the chickHENhomebrew environment. Now you can go to Game in the XMB and load some homebrew. 10 . You can download the CHickHEN R2 forFirmware 5.03 here:

Cant download songs,movies,from macbook to psp


here are the steps you'll need to go through to get your music to download successful from your Windows PC to your new Sony PSP unit:
  1. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable. (about $10: buy a USB cable for your PSP)
  2. Press the "home" button on the PSP (it's a tiny button to the lower left of the screen) then use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP.
  3. Press the "X" button (you got it, the round button with the "X" on it) and your PSP should display "USB Connection".
  4. In a moment or two your computer should tell you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:
  5. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
  6. Now create a new folder on that drive and name it "psp".
  7. Within the new "psp" folder create another folder, and name it "music".
  8. Copy your desired mp3 files into the new "music" folder.
  9. When you're done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button on the PSP to get out of USB connect mode.
Now you're ready to go! Use the left-right arrows to move to the music area, then the up-down arrows to find "Memory Stick". Chose that folder by pressing the "X" button again, and you should be able to find all your favorite music!
Note that the PSP running older firmware (firmware is the "operating system" of the PSP) does not support any Windows Media formats i.e WMA & WMV, so any music you have in that format must be converted to MP3 before copying to your PSP. Fortunately, Sony's very own Image Converter 2.1 can convert all your music with a very simple GUi and will then also manage all the measuring and transfering for you too.
If Image Converter doesn't seem up to snuff, then there are various other solutions for converting audio files, including the free Windows application
If you really want to play WMA format audio files, make sure you have the latest version of the firmware from Sony (see below for update instructions).

PSP comes on and plays fine then the screen goes black?


I am having the same problem.  The screen will intermittently come on as blurry.  Like all the text and graphics are doubled, but off by a few pixels.  Doing a sleep and turning it back on usually fixes it.  But I can not operate my PSP for more than like 10 seconds to a minute (varying) until the screen freezes and fades to black from right to left.  This usually occurs by pressing any of the buttons on the front panel.  If I am reading the news in the browser for instance and it is just sitting there, it is fine, then the second I hit a button, fades to black.  After it fades to black, sound and buttons continue to work.  I figured it was a bad LCD, so I purchased a brand new OEM LCD screen and installed it, however, the problem still persists with the new LCD screen, so it is not the screen itself.

How to downgrade my psp ???


Dangers of downgrading
  1. Know that downgrading your PSP voids the warranty and can be quite dangerous to your hardware.
  2. Downgrading often requires upgrading: You can only use a downgrader that goes from one firmware version to another, so most users will need to update their PSP to at least version 2.0 (USA) in order to then downgrade it to 1.5 or 1.0.
Find your firmware
  1. Determine which version of the PSP operating system you are currently running:
    1. Navigate to the main menu on your PSP.
    2. Select Settings -> System Settings -> System Information.
    3. Look for System Software Version X.XX. Where X.XX is the version number of your PSP firmware.
    4. Now you will know which downloader and/or updater you will need.
      • Note that any version greater than 1.51 will prevent you from running Homebrew and other independent applications.
Use the tools
  1. Be aware that your firmware updater and associated tools are located on the Memory card.
  2. Know that there are many tools to downgrade your PSP, depending on the version number of your firmware:
    1. Version 2.0 and 2.01 can be downgraded with Easy Downgrader.
    2. Versions 3.0 to 3.03 can be downgraded [here]
    3. Search Google for other downgraders.
The .tiff image hack
  1. Be aware that the hack below is dangerous. The developers who first found this hack bricked-up (destroyed) 6 PSP units before they got it working. A single miss-step can brick your machine and make it the most expensive coaster available. Please use at your own risk. These instructions will, however, technically allow you to downgrade any PSP that can display .tiff images.
  2. Know that this process is for downgrading from 2.0 to a lower version. If you have a higher version you will need different software, and if you are running 1.51 or 1.52 you will need to upgrade to 2.0 before you can downgrade to 1.5
  3. Download the original 1.50 EBOOT updater, version 1.5
  4. Download MPHDowngrader. Be absolutely sure it is version 1.0.0.
  5. Connect your PSP to your PC via USB cable.
  6. Go to the directory /PSP/GAME/ on your memory stick.
  7. Create a sub-directory named UPDATE which must be in uppercase.
  8. Obtain the EBOOT.PBP file from the updater.
  9. Copy the downloaded PBP file into the UPDATE directory.
  10. Download the MPHDowngrader and unzip the program.
    • Inside the package you will find a Photo folder with an image inside named overflow.tif.
  11. Drop overflow.tif into your /PSP/PHOTO/ folder.
  12. Place both h.bin and index.dat in the root of your Memory Stick.
  13. Disconnect your PSP from your computer and plug in the AC adapter.
  14. Navigate to Photo and then Memory Stick via the PSP's menu system and start scrolling down through your photos until you reach the overflow.tif picture.
  15. Everything will freeze, the screen will turn black and fuzzy white text will appear.
    • If your PSP freezes without going to this black text screen, then hold the power button for about 10 seconds until the PSP shuts down, then hit the power button again to start it back up. Repeat this step until you get that black screen.
  16. Hold the power button for about 10 seconds until the PSP powers off.
  17. Hit the power button again. Your PSP will start up.
    • Navigate to your System Information, and you'll discover that your PSP thinks it is running version firmware 1.0. It isn't, gthough, and you cannot yet run Homebrew.
  18. Navigate to Game -> Memory Stick, hit the X button, and navigate to the 1.5 updater.
    • Make sure you have your PSP plugged in or the upgrade won't work.
  19. Click the X button and update like you normally would. At the end of the upgrade you will receive an error saying that the upgrade failed and to contact Sony. Ignore this and again force your PSP to power off and reboot.
    • After the PSP reboots, you will receive an error screen in multiple languages. Find your language and read the corresponding line. It notes that your preferences are lost and that you need only hit the O button to restore some default settings.
  20. Hit the O button.
  21. The PSP will start back up and you will go through the initial setup like the day when you first bought your PSP. Do so and then go to the system info pane again, where you will see that you are running version 1.5.
  22. Run homebrew at will.

[edit] Tips
  • For a new firmware version to be downgradable crackers first have to decrypt any new security or authentication measures, and then create a downloader. This can take some time and is a process of constant change as new versions are released. If you attempting to downgrade a fully updated or brand new PSP you will need to work with the latest version of the firmware, current version 3.5 in the USA.
  • Downgrade Your Psp to Version 1.5 just Using Your Psp Battery

[edit] Warnings
  • There are many web sites out there that will sell you videos or instructions, but beware, the information is available and the tools needed are free or shareware.
  • Do this at your own risk. This technique was created by modders and might not be 100 percent reliable. It may also void the warranty for your PSP.
  • Anti-virus scanner and software will often identify PBP as potentially malicious. You may need to temporarily disable these security measures to obtain the updates.

[edit] Things You'll Need
  • PSP
  • USB cable
  • Microsoft Windows ™ computer with usb support
  • Internet connection
