Sometimes (it's very rare), when playing a PSP ISO, my PSP's screen goes black and I have no choice but to turn the PSP off. I have 6.61 PRO-C with Infinity installed.

Also, if I take the battery after the PSP's power LED starts to blink (meaning low battery) and put it back, the PSP runs out of battery for good many times, so I have to charge it. Is it normal?

Sometimes (it's rare) during a game's loading my PSP 3000's screen goes black and I have no other choice but to turn off the PS3. I have 6.61 Pro-C Infinity installed.
Since it is rare what is the problem? Of course it is not a normal thing. I have a PSP 3004 with the same cfw and it never happened to me. What does the PS3 have to do with it?

Also, if I take the battery after the PSP's light starts to blink (meaning low battery) and put it back, the PSP runs out of battery for good many times, so I have to charge it. Is it normal?
If the light is red and blinking it means it is completely empty. Then why do you take it off the console instead of charging it with its power supply? What is the point of that? If you take it off empty, when you put it back in its slot it will still be like that. It's simple logic, or am I wrong?

My mistake, I meant the PSP. It also happened in previous PSPs. Though it's rare, it's still a problem. If so, why are some rare issues fixed by updates, in general?

I don't get what you meant. Although it's blinking, the PSP still has some battery left, thus it's blinking, so why doesn't it have it when I put it back? Anyway, is it normal for it to ask the time after taking the battery and putting it back?

What do you mean? That by taking the battery out of the PS Vita and putting it back in, you don't have to set the date and time? Then in addition to that it also has an internal micro battery that keeps the date and time, I suppose.

I asked if the same thing happened with the PS Vita since I don't know because its battery isn't removable like the PSP's.

Who knows?!?
"To be or not to be, that is the question."
Lol. 😉

Why do the date and time have to be set when there's a power outage, the consoles' power cords are taken and connected again or the consoles' power strips' switches are clicked and not every console (and electrical device in general) automatically change to daylight saving time?

Certain chips, like SRAM, forget their memory if they are not given a constant voltage. If there is some electrical irregularity, that memory is forgotten and a new one must be given.

Daylight Savings Time must be calculated based on a calendar, which old electronics were only programmed to keep track of units of time. If new electronics lack the ability to keep track of Daylight Savings Time, it could be because the country of manufacture does not practice it.

And what isn't there another battery?
  1. Cost
  2. Size restrictions
  3. Repair
  4. Safety
Considering handhelds are put through more extreme temperatures outside the home, the likelyhood of batteries rupturing increases. Given this situation, it is better for the battery acid to be contained in the battery compartment, compared to contaminating the motherboard.

What do you mean by the country not practicing it? It forgets that setting like date and time.

Battery acid?

I was just noting that most countries don't observe Daylight Savings Time. Also, it makes sense to store that setting with date time.

If a battery were to rupture, the battery acid from it could corrode the surrounding components and the PCB. The PSP has a sequestered compartment for the battery, preventing that.
