    Hi all

    Just wondering if anyone encountered this problem or knows how to fix this.

    My dpad seems to be moving by itself in a few situations:
    1. When I try to change my PSP nickname in the system settings, the cursor is stuck on the left, as if the left button is stuck...Otherwise I can browse around the PSP menus without any problems.
    2. When I am in a game, and I press the home button to exit, I cannot move to the left to the YES option to exit! Actually even if I press X on the NO option, it doesn't respond. Pressing X is actually "activating" a selection in the game running in the background...
    3. In game menus. Just an example, in ridge racer, when I click on continue to continue a previous game, the menu scrolls down as if the down button is stuck...

    I am using 3.71m33. Not sure if this is a coincidence or not but I started having this problem a little while after installing 3.71m33. ALthough I must say I did play for a day or 2 before that problem occurred. And also I installed the same firmware on another similar psp without any problems. I've even downgraded back to 1.5 and then the problem still remained in 1.5..I've browsed around but I haven't seen any reports of such glitches...

    I've also tried cleaning the buttons and dpad.. but that didnt help..

    hopefully someone can help.. im at a loss here

    Very weird, and you say it only happens in those areas? or does it happen randomly as well?

    Yea I saw:p

    But I did clean it, and it wasn't even that dirty to begin with...

    But maybe i can try to clean it again.. Anyway if its dirt, why would it be stuck only in some situations??

    Hmm I think i was mistaken all along.. It's not the dbad and buttons that was stuck... it was the L button!!

    I tapped it a bit, and the problems are now non existent..

    thank god.. now i'll try to clean it a bit i suppose..

    thanks staxx :p
