My 1.5 PSP recently started having odd problems with home and start buttons. During a game, when I press the Home button, the Exit screen pops up but I cannot choose "yes" (The highlight is on No and is not flashing). Also, start button does not respond. The other odd thing is it fixed itself when I left it alone for a few days and it recently came back. The problem started happening after I started using devhook and loaded Lumines (cso)
- devhook 0.46
- custom firmware
- 2GB Sony memory stick
So far I have tried:
-upgrade fw and downgrade ( 1.5 -> 2.6 -> 1.5 -> 2.71 -> 1.5 -> 2.0 ->1.5)
-opened up the PSP and cleaned out the dust
After trying quite a few things out I discovered:
-using Hold acts as start button
-pressing start button for 6 sec or greater and when released it acts as 1 click of start (sometimes)
-During a game, pressing the home button to access the exit game screen then using hold allows me to choose Yes to exit game but as soon as it returns to the PSP menu screen, it automatically reloads the same iso.
Thx to custom fw, I manage to bypass some of the problems but its starting to get on my nerves and i want a fix.
Does anyone else have a similar problem or know a way you can fix this? Sending it back to Sony is not an option for me since I don't have a warantee =(
