    Okay. I'm new to this site. But, I have nowhere else to ask this.
    I have a PSP 2000 with CFW Pro-C. Everything about it was fine. Then on Jan 1 when I went plug in my headphones and listen to music, the volume was loud. Really loud. Like beyond max loud. I tried turning it down. But when I did, the speaker icon comes gray and the volume doesn't go down.

    I've tried just about everything. Reset the settings, no luck. Changed headphones, no dice. Reformatted memory stick, nothing. Hard reset the setting (triangle, square, select, start), nope.

    I had a temporary solution by putting tissue in the rubber canal of a pair skullcandy headphones and it worked for a while. But the powerful bass eventually won and blew out the right side. Now all I have are a good pair of overheads, but they're now the equivalent of speakers.

    Can anyone help? I'm sorry if this was long or even if it was on the wrong board (again I'm new :cry:) but I would greatly appreciate it if someone would help me or point me in the right direction

    Thank you in advance:bow:

    Well what was your solution? It was fine at first, but this is starting to kill me.

    Not too sure if there other CFWs at 6.60, but I'll look into it......or if I should be trusting the name "noob killer" :mellow:

    hehe what i meant was if you weren't having the problem before then you could also try formatting/ fresh install and that may fix your problem to format the settings go to system recovery menu [hold r at boot] and im not to sure where in there maybe advanced setting and try to format the flashes 1 or 0

    Well, he doesn't necessarily need to downgrade to switch firmwares. He could switch from PRO to ME, for example (both have 6.60 builds).

    Okay, I'm back. I switched from Pro-C to ME-1.8....still the same result.:glare: I even reformatted flash1 and it's still the same. I don't know what hell happened?! It's like it's on perma-AudioBoost mode or something for headphones. From what I've heard, I shouldn't even touch flash0.:mellow: But, I need answers and I'm tired of turning my PSP in a test experiment!

    Disabled the plugins, still nothing. Reformatted flash2 for the hell of it, nothing. Man, this is annoying. Its almost like its a hardware problem or something. Like it's stuck.

    Yeah. When unplugged, the controls come back. Increase, decrease, muted. They work.

    I only had a pair of Skullcandy ink'd headphones when this occurred. I had no remote volume control or mic. But, yeah it might be hardware. I might have to give Sony a call or something. Not willing to give up though.

    Tried it. No good. It's BEYOND full blast, even with AVLS. I've been able to use skullcandy 2XL (with tissue in the canal of course) and the sound is perfect even without, ironically.
