PSP SCREEN FLICKERS AND GOES SLOW IN MAIN MENU

Hey,

When I turn on my PSP and it goes into the main menu and the screen starts to flicker and when I navigate around it goes really slow. When I load into a UMD game it play fine though (from a UMD disk or off the memory card), it plays at a normal pace and the screen doesn't flicker at all. I have recently had my PSP moded and thought this might be an issue. Although for a week after the mod the PSP worked fine even loading games off of my memory stick. The PSP is a slim and only a month old, now that it is moded I think I am also screwed for my warranty. Can anyone give me some advice?

Hold down power button to turn off power and reser the device.. Now hold down the top right button while you turn it back on it should bring u to recovery mode. Now go down to the CPU speed and press x. Go to xmd and press x till you see default/default go back to main menu n go to reset device should fix everything:)

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

I had the same problem when running custom firmware. I used a pandora's battery with magic memory stick to put the firmware back down to v1.5.

Once it was back down to v1.5 i could upgrade firmware to whatever i liked and it was fine again.
I don't know what caused it. Just know that that fixed it.

SOURCE: PSP SCREEN FLICKERS AND GOES SLOW IN MAIN MENU

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.

Is could be your TV and not the PS3. When the resolution of the screen changes, you TV will flicker to adjust to the new resolution. My TV flickers in a similar way when playing games of lower resolution than my HDTV.

Psp lags / delayed action


Are you running with custom firmware like M33 or HX?

If so, you can switch your psp off (not stand by), and hold R trigger when you switch it on, it should bring you to the recovery menu, where you can setup your XMB cpu speed and Game cpu speed, both set to default will be fine.
