    I was playing M.A.C.H. when all of the sudden the exit game menu flashed really quick.

    Thinking nothing of it, I continued. A few seconds later, it kept popping up over and over again.
    Even it the menu it would kick me out of USB, or send me to the top XMB while listening to music

    I loosened the faceplate, thinking it might me too tight and holding the home button down. No luck.

    Thought it might even be the firmware. Reinstalled 3.03 OE, then went to 1.50.


    Now it is constantly pressing Home by itself, even when the faceplate is off.
    I tinkered around with it a bit while it was in pieces and rebuilt it.

    No luck again.

    It must be shorting out or something. Until I get the parts to fix it (or *gasp* send it to SCE) I can't even play a game.

    So yeah. Not a brick, but I still can't use it.

    O_o I've actually heard this issue before...
    Only thing would be a screwed connection or something.

    Just get your hands on a spare home buttons plate/sticker and see if that helps.

    It's coming up to 3 years of the psp being out (this month i thought) and they're all falling apart! My joystick fell off the other day, not just the nub but all of it! Need to get a replacement off ebay!


    Chaos, have you sprayed it with some compressed air? get all those bits out?

    How would you replace it? isn't the home button soldered onto the mobo?

    That sucks anyway, sorry i couldn't help more!

    Open her up once and all questions will be answered. Replacing home buttons is probably the easiest thing.
