The reason it doesn't work in the menu is because it doesn't use the D-pad (the plus-shaped button that you use to move around). To go through the menu options, you need to press the Select button (that's the left of the two small buttons in the center of the controller). Many games use that to select menu options instead of the D-pad.

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!

Hey, i have a problem with my sony PSP when i start my PSP the green power light is on but there is nothing to display and the memory stick light keeps flickering too , please help ???


Hello there

You'll need to hard reset your PSP and restore it to its factory settings. Once this is done, your PSP should work perfectly.

Hold the power button on the right side of your PSP down until the device completely powers off. Wait at least five seconds after the power is off before proceeding to the next step.

Press and hold the Select and Start buttons located in the bottom right corner of the PSP.

Press and hold the Square and Triangle buttons (located on the directional pad) while continuing to hold the Select and Start buttons.

Press the power button while holding these four buttons. When the flash (logo) screen appears, you can release the four buttons and your PSP will be reset to its factory settings and the screen will no longer be blank.

Hi i want to ask how to downgarde psp 6.20 to 5.50 without pandora battery please help me in that...thank you


Hi

You can downgrade your psp without a pandora battery but you will need a Lumines game hack,Follow these steps to do so.

Download the 5.50.pbp file. Rename the 5.50.pbp file to "UPDATE.PBP." Connect your PSP to your computer with the USB cable and select "USB Connection" to place the PSP into USB mode. A window will appear on your computer and you will be able to see the PSP memory stick files.

Download the downgrade pack. Open the "MS_ROOT" folder from the downgrade pack. Right-click the "PSP" folder and click "Copy." Go back to the PSP memory stick and right-click it. Click "Paste" and "Yes" to overwrite the data.


Right-click the UPDATE.PBP file that you downloaded in step one and click "Copy." Open the "PSP" folder on the PSP memory stick and you will see the "GAME" folder. Open this folder to reveal the "UPDATE" folder. Right-click the "UPDATE" folder and click "Paste" to transfer the update file to your PSP memory stick. The downgrade pack and 5.50 update file are on the PSP memory stick. Press the "O" button to safely disconnect the PSP from your computer.

Insert the Lumines PSP game into the PSP drive. Select the game from the PSP menu to start. Press the "Start" button when you get to the Lumines start screen. Your screen will blink red and will turn completely blue. You will be brought back to the PSP screen. It is important to not press any buttons before you get to the Lumines start screen.

Go to the game section of the PSP menu and you will now be able to see the "x.yz update" application. Select it with the "X" button to start it. Press the "X button from the main menu to start the downgrading process. Press "X" again to reboot the PSP when the downgrade has completed. You have now downgraded your PSP to 5.50 firmware.

PSP start button and select button not work


  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.
