    Hi guys. Small problem. My PSP seems to be having some sort of identity crisis. Up until a few days ago it was working fine, no issues of note. Now the start button won't work, when I load any of the previously working ISOs the face buttons won't respond, and when I try to quit out of the dodgy games making use of the Home button crashes the system. I've tried refreshing my memory card's files from a backup from when they were working perfectly, but it made no difference. Any idea what might be wrong, and for that matter how to fix the damn thing? Only I spent most of yesterday afternoon downloading new games for it, only for it to go screwy on me. Suffice as to say that like Queen Victoria, one is not amused. Any ideas?

    In case it makes any difference, I'm running an old school PSP 'phat' 1K on 5.50 Prometheus, if memory serves. I can call up additional details if needed.

    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    Do you have any plugins enabled? Try disabling some and try again.

    I have NPXLoader enabled for my Duodecim DLC, that's working fine as the DLC still loads. I disabled PSN Lover years ago (why bother with it?) and aside from JoySens I can't remember ever installing any others. Certainly none that would account for dodgy face buttons or a dead start/home key.

    I would still recommend to disable all or most of them, and see if anything has changed.

    Will give it a try and report back in the morning with any results.

    Reporting in, disabling all plugins did nothing :( I did make some tiny progress though. The Home key no longer locks up the system, but instead now it displays the return to home options but doesn't respond. In fact I tried it while on Duodecim and I could still control the game perfectly normally, only with the screen showing the home options instead of the actual game. Start button is still completely dead, I get no response from it on any level.

    Anyone got any ideas? I've tried formatting my card and transferring the files back, it did nothing :(

    Well, first and foremost, I would recommend upgrading to the Pro CFW (6.20 should do fine). Prometheus gave me more problems than it solved on my old Phat, and I had a much easier time once I upgraded. Besides that, I dunno what could actually be causing your problem. For it just to occur out of the blue like that is quite odd.

    6.60 me is also worth considering
