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.

SOURCE: 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 -_-'' ..

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

SOURCE: Chipped psp runs slow while playing games. Eveything else is perfect

I'm assuming that when you say "chipped" you mean "hacked"

If this is the case and you have an M33 firmware, you have 2 options.
1. get it reflashed or update it to a newer firmware which will reset all of your settings.

2. press select and at the top of the screen there will be a menu that you can change 2 cpu speeds. play with those settings until the games play smoothly.
If that doesn't work your only option is choice #1.

How do you update the psp - United States

Hi please find above three websites that show you exactly how to update your system. It is pretty easy to do. Simply follow the instruction to the letter and you should have NO trouble.
However IF you expect an Update to FIX your unit, it will NOT do so,any problems that existed before, will in all likelihood still remain after updating.. Also unless you really need to do so for a good reason, it is advisable to NOT do so, as if done incorrectly, or something goes wrong, you will end up "Bricking" your PSP. So take care and think about weather or not you need to?

PSP cannot turn on

keeping Lithium ion batteries(found in ur psp) idle for such a long time without charging may discharge them compleatly and even if you try to charge them they will not function. this seems to be a problem with your battries not ur PSP. try to get it replaced from the dealer you bought the PSP from. hope this solves your problem.. :D

Monitor goes to sleep no input signal only 1 mo old

Normaly the monitor is not picking up the signal from the PC, it could be VGA cord is not connected, faulty, or the video card is faulty,or the monitor is not compatible to the PC. It could be one of my suggestions. Trouble shoot by connecting your monitor to another working PC and see what happens.If not the VGA cord is faulty and not picking up signal from the PC. Hope it helps.

Psp cuts out after roughly 15 minnutes

depends, if your psp is damn old that may be the problem, but otherwise i cant tell ya, because the battery starts to last lesser, more quickly if you are from those guys who dont wait until it goes out of batteries to charge it
