    Sounds like your Home button is being pressed down by something stuck in it.

    It really sounds like it's just something stuck in there pressing the home button down. How much it costs depends on the PSP model (1K/2K/3K/Go) and who's going to look at it. It shouldn't cost much to take the faceplate off and clean the home bar.

    Hell, I wrote a guide for the 2K model.
