Nothing interesting at the car boot sale today but I picked up super cheap a black PSP-3000 (Slim) as faulty.

It switches on but its stuck on the set time/date screen because although the dpad works and I can set the time etc, the X button doesn't, so I cannot get further.

Has anyone had this issue ? Is it a software or hardware issue ?

its a hardware issue,try cleaning the contacts under the button.
obviously youll have to take it apart to clean it.


the button pushes down on a carbon rubber pad that touches contacts...same as the d pad on cd32 controllers.
