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.

Sony 52xbr4 screen flickering


Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Ubnormal DC voltage output from it. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and precious time.

My LG Lcd tv takes a minute or so to turn on then sometimes the picture flickers and goes out. The tv is on but no picture or sound. When I try to use the menu button on the tv it doesn't work. Whe


The fact that you have no menu or onscreen display, leads me to believe that it is the main logic board. Either the processor ic or the voltages going to the main board are missing. Check to see if the main board is getting 5v and 3.3v to determine if it is your power supply not supplying the voltages or your main board.

My laptop screen flickers in and out, screen goes black


Hello there,
The reason the screen flickers is simply because the module of the laptop is faulty. The module is what connects the screen to the main board, it is like a flex for the screen. Once you can have it replaced, the screen will stop flickering.
