    i just found out the problem, the switch that turns it on is broken. but i fixed that and now works. now my only problem is that when i try to play scarface it ask's me to update my firmware to 2.71. i currently have 1.50. is there an alternative solutions to play this game??

    Yes, just update to 3.40OE-A. It's a mix of 1.5 and 3.40, but with a lot of extras like customizing your home screen, playing ps1 games, and playing iso's. You can always go back to 1.5 from it easily. Here's a guide and a link to the easy installer.

    uh, being a complete dumbass and cutting the power during flashing, or not following the instructions correctly will brick 99% of the time.

    Well the website that guy just gave me to download seems pretty simple. My umd drive doesnt work "properly" so is that gonna be a problem? oh and i dont have charger for my batter to connect to the psp. i have a charge where i put the batter inside the charger and than hook it up to the wall. Is that gonna be a problem? thx guys.

    What do you mean by 'the games lately have not been working'? be more specific so we can help you out.

    Check your recovery settings, see if anything had changed.

    well that's the problem. my psp is new so i do not know what my initial settings were. i couldn't have changed anything from the recovery menu because i only learned that such a thing existed after my tekken 5 stopped playing.

    Your settings might change itself, if something is wrong with your flash1.

    I assume you have an umd in your drive.
    Go to recovery menu, disable NO-UMD
    Go to advanced, advanced settings, disable all 3 options.
