When i press home button the screen goes black


Your post is a bit vague. You press the home button ingame or while in the menu(and then it goes black) or in both places? Does your PSP work properly?
If anything, update your firmware(if your PSP is modified then update to anything less than 6.39 and re-modify).

How to fix Volume issues in PSP Portable


How to Fix a PSP Volume Button through Software
Check to be sure that your PlayStation Portable's AVLS (Automatic Volume Limiter System) is turned off.
Start your PSP without a game in it. Choose "Settings," then select "Sound Settings." If the AVLS option is "ON," turn it "OFF."
Check to see that your memory stick is inserted properly if the sound still does not work. This often interferes with the volume control. Remove the memory stick and reinsert it.
Perform a hard reset of your PSP if the volume still does not work. To do this, first unplug your PSP and remove any games or memory sticks. Then remove the battery from its cavity on the back. Press and hold any button for five seconds, then reinstall your battery.
Move on to hardware solutions if none of the above options work
How to Fix a PSP Volume Button through Hardware
Remove your PlayStation Portable's battery pack, any games and memory sticks. Unplug it.
Unscrew all five screws that hold the faceplate onto your PSP. The fifth is hard to locate, so find it just below the screen on the bottom edge.
Clean the button heads underneath the volume buttons with a small cloth. You should also clean the Home button nearby as this often interferes with the volume button.
Return the faceplate and screws, and test your PSP.

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!

How to incres volume of psp


Hi,
Follow these steps to increase the volume for your PSP-
(1) Turn on your PSP and start playing your movie, song or game. Boost the volume of the PSP by pressing the volume control buttons located on the button bar, which is below the screen. The (+) button will turn the volume up, and the (-) button will turn the volume down.
(2) Plug your PSP into a larger speaker if the volume still is not high enough. You need an auxiliary cable with two male ends to plug the PSP into a speaker. You can use a three-foot cable. Plug one end of the cable into the PSP and the other into the speaker input.
(3) Plug any FM transmitter into the PSP headphone jack and tune your radio to the FM station on the FM transmitter. Your audio from the PSP will now be playing through the radio speakers in your car or home. This will allow you increase the volume greatly.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

My psp volume button will not work can you help but its only the one to turn it up not down


When this happens, it's because the volume button on the inside is messed up. Usually it's because it's dirty or sticky and sticks down [or presses itself]. You can try opening it and cleaning under the volume button. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the home/volume/start/select circuit ribbon cable. If you're not comfortable opening it, check the following company -- they would repair something like this for $29

PSP Not Working


Hey, try taking the faceplate and screen off. Get a blowdryer and dry. This sometimes fixes the problem.
