View Full Version : Seriously weird problem

June 1st, 2005, 18:47
OK, I know this isn't directly Homebrew-related, and allow me to at first apologise for that.

I've had my PSP for about 3 weeks now, and last night I left it with my sister who was playing Ridge Racer on it in another room. She returned it to me later in the evening and I charged it.

Upon switching it on this afternoon, everything works fine, except the OS menu has changed from green to purple. I've ran games and video files in it, and they look exactly as they did before, and there's no bleeding of text/colours on the main menu. I've been through the menus on Ridge Racer and the system menu and neither seem to have any sort of skinning feature that could have been changed to cause this. I've also searched the net, and I can't see anybody else mentioning this. I've also reset the PSP to factory default and checked for any updates that could have somehow happened, and the system menu still recognises the bios as 1.50.

Has anybody else seen this before, or have any idea of what may have caused. I'm really just wondering if this is a sign that my PSP could be deffective in some way.

Thanks in Advance.


EDIT: OK, just in case this has happened to anybody else, I've just had a text on my mobile from one of my mates in China Town. Apparently they change colours dependent on what month it is or something. If your PSP has done this as well, there isn't anything wrong with it, it's just Sony's attempt at being creative. ;)

My manual is Japanese, I have a pdf of the US one, but I've only really read the basics.

I found out why it had happened just minutes after posting this though, which is why I edited the post just to help anyone else out that this had confused.

if it changes color then it means the PSP is closer to blowing up ... :(

we've all had this question answered, for ages it was stressing me out that the colour of my dads PSP was blue and mine was pink, then i found out that his date was set as august (i think) and mine was proper for the time (april i think)... eh well !!!

This colour is much better than that "ikky" green that made me wretch, seriously i hadnt installed some games properlly like the neo geo and it had corrupted data, then i ran it and turned back and it was purple, i crapped my pants lol.
