PSP black screen

My sons psp (received 7 months ago) has nothing but a black screen when powered up. He purchased a new game (Iron Man) and it requested to be updated. As soon as he did that, the screen went black and will not come back on.

    The green light comes on and stays on for about 30 seconds then goes off. I am not sure whether he turned it off or pressed x, I'll have to ask him that but from what he said, it said it needed to upgrade something to play the game and he clicked to do that. I will have to clarify with him whether it completed the upgrade (this is the first time he's been asked to upgrade anything). He says after that, the screen went black and has stayed that way.



    Thank you!

    Apparently, he says it started updating and got to 8% and stopped....... so he turned it off. Is there anything I can do to fix it or did he kill it?

    I was updating my psp network and i triped over my power adaptor and unplugged it now all that is showing up is an orange light when i plug it in and i can't get any power other than plugging it in.

    sounds like it 1. lost power during upgrade 2. he turned the psp off manualy instead of pressing x to reboot, when you turn it on does the green light come on then go blank?

It seem like aloe of people are having the same problem, i think we need to call the company and have them replace all together.

IF PSP is being disturbed or power went off by any means while upgrading system software. It is sure that your PSP is bricked and now you had the only option to get repaired by a technician and it is done with the help of Pandora's Jigkick Battery. If you required any more info please write.

PSP powers up, black screen, no sound


It could be, although if it hasn't been modified in anyway it could be the battery. If your son has used this battery so many times, say a couple months or years, the motherboard or chip could malfunction, causing shortage of power. Try getting a replaceable battery, or if you know another friend or guy that has a son/daughter with an extra battery try using it to save money. If it's not the battery, could be the firmware, or version. Hope these solutions help, let me know if they do or don't.
Good Luck!
