    Default [HELPER] PSP Freezes?

    WELCOME: Hi, if your PSP freezes and you have no idea why, I've made this helper. Iv'e done my research so you don't have to! If you answer these questions, I will do as best I can to solve your problem.

    1. What is your PSP's Model?


    2. What is your update version? (Be sure to state if it is CFW or OFW.)

    3. How long have you had it?

    4. How long ago did it start freeze?

    5. How it freezes: (choose one)
    a. Does it freeze and then turn off in about 5-10 seconds?
    b. Does it freeze and stay frozen unless you take the batt. out?
    c. You don't know.
    d. Other: please explain.

    6. When it freezes: (choose one)
    a. Does it freeze when you first turn it on?
    b. Does it freeze only while in a game(if so, which game)?
    c. Does it seem to freeze randomly at any time, while in-game or anywhere?
    d. You don't know.
    e. Other: please explain.

    OPTIONAL: This part is if it is a hardware issue, if you are not sure you can/want to take apart your PSP unit, then skip numbers 7 and 8.

    7. Have you taken your PSP system apart before?

    8. If so, are you familiar with the inside of your PSP unit?

    MORE OPTIONAL: If for any reason I cannot help you (slim/phat chance) or if you do not wish to follow my solution, I'd also like a little bit more info to refer you to a repair facility:

    9. Did you buy/obtain your PSP new or used?

    10. Is your warranty still valid?

    11. Is the serial number still on the bottom of your PSP(don't state it, just say if it's there)?

    12. Is there still a semi-long, skinny sticker at the lower part of your PSP's battery compartment under the larger sticker?

    ATTENTION!!!: Please respond to these questions as best you can with as much detail as possible and I'll work with you to the best of my ability.
    To help me help you, please answer by number and if you have anything to add, please state it at either the beginning or the end of your message.

    THANK YOU!

    IF ANYONE SKIPS A QUESTION, PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU DID!!!

    Alright, first, clear your UMD's of dust or scratches and then set UMD ISO MODE to Normal and the CPU speed in game to Default in the VSH menu or the recovery menu and try it again. If it still freezes, then just start the game, put it down, and just watch it(don't touch it!), if it doesn't freeze for at all, then contact me again.

    Does it matter if someone skip a question?
    But good to have another help thread. Unfortunatly, threads not being sticky is going to fall pretty quick because of all the people who ask soooo much.
