I am running a CFA with count data and the AIC/BIC as well as non-standardized results print however, I receive 9999 and 1s for the standardized factor solution and the chi-square tests come back with a p=1.00 and degrees of freedom which are very high. I am not receiving any error messages and am not sure how to determine what has gone wrong. Any advice would be appreciated.

StdY does not make sense with count data because there is not a residual variance estimated for Y. This results in what you see. I would only consider StdX if I felt that I had to standardize.

Chi-2 for counts refer to a frequency table and that table easily gets empty cells where you can't trust the chi-2 - that's most likely why you see p=1.
