    I got a new battery for my PSP 1004.
    It seems third party, no SONY logo, 3600 V.

    I have CFW 5.50 Prome-4 on my PSP.

    The thing is since then I have occassionally random black screens with the green light turned on.
    I had it first at a scene in a game and then when I tried to copy sth via USB to the PSP.
    When such a black screen happens I can't even get my PSP turned back on.
    I have to put out the battery but when I put it back in it won't work.

    But when I connect the PSP through the AC adaptor the battery keeps charging and everything seems fine again and I even can turn it back on.

    Also: I couldn't copy the file with the battery in but with the adaptor (battery out) everything worked just fine.
    What could be the cause of it?

    Also: I opened it the other day to clean it but nothing serious happened and it seemed all fine after that.
    Still have this problems since yesterday. Any help?

    Do you happen to be pressing the L or R trigger when it happens?

    No, this would put it in Recovey Mode after all, right?
    But this happens after a short time and apparently for no reason.

    It'll only boot into recovery mode if your memory stick has been formatted to be a magic memory stick and has the right files to boot on it, otherwise it'll just give a black screen.

    Dunno' what it is then.
