Psp my home screen comes on in the middle of me playing games

    I have the same issue. No, I'm not pressing the 'Home' button and no, the button isn't stuck. Something is wrong with the UMD drive or the hardware. I can't say 100% what causes the issue but it is definitely something with the hardware and very likely something wrong with the UMD door or laser (even though it seems perfect). It is a very strange problem as occasionally the PSP struggles to read discs and will take longer to load and this problem will occur very frequently while playing a game (yes, any game.. but it happens more with 'big' games that involve heavier gameplay). Sometimes I can go hours without this happening at all. My PSP is still under warranty and frankly it really sucks that this problem has come up b/c I take really good care of my PSP and don't even play all that heavily. Here's hoping Sony will exchange my PSP for a new one.

While playing games on my psp, it randomly shows the quit game home screen without having pressed the home button.


Your PSP needs to be fixed. The home button might be stuck. No software solution for this, it's hardware related.

My PSP turns off in middle of stuff


it may be a temporary glitch.try to do it several times and if it's really showing consistently the same glitch,then there might be either a disc game or psp hardware problem.try to play other disc games on your psp console,if you don't encounter any problems,your psp console may be out of the woods.or use your nba 08 disc on other working psp consoles and see how it goes...if you encounter the same glitch,most likely,the disc is defective.i assume you have an official firmware on your psp.hope this helps.

Blank screen


Try pressing the START+ L + R to see if it resets the game.

If it does not, your PSP may be Semi-Bricked. Write me back if your PSP is Semi-bricked and needs to be restored.

it could be that someone pushed the button in too hard and it wont pop back up because even if you lightly touch it, it could go to that screen

Screen flickers and fades


Hi JohnH,

I suggest you try a different UMD and see if everytime you run a UMD it happens.  If it does, then yes, you should call  Sony support at 1 800 345 7669.  This is first I have heard of the screen going out and coming back when the game stopped. i am wondering if you have a coding problem in the particular game your playing that dims the screen.
