Ok settle down, repairing corrupt PSP flash memory is easy and doesnt require much expertise. I myself have custom firmware on my PSP and have corrupted flash memory before making my PSP not turn on. To fix it you need two things, a pandora battery and a magic memory stick. A pandora battery allows the PSP to enter 'service mode' and a magic memory stick is a normal memory stick that allows for firmware to be installed off it. I recommend www.pandorasales.com and they provide both those things so you just need to insert both and then it will fix your problem. If you want even more details on how this all works search google for 'bricked psp'. Dont worry your PSP is repairable and it is fairly hard to completely ruin your psp without smashing it or pulling it apart.

Hi I am having the same problem, but it could be really really bad news. The same thing happened me when I was asked to update the software. And my psp crashed during the install. So because of it the flash memory in it is no corrupt so it wont switch on, oh and Sony wont cover the memory through the warranty. I believe the term for it is psp brick, and unfortunately there is no fix for it unless you are very clever and add new flash memory to bypass the old one.

If you know another PSP user , try using their battery on your PSP to see if it is a faulty battery. Does it work on the AC Cable? If not it then it could be power line fault and will need repair

Well i got turn my ps3 on it beeps the light on the console goes dark green then it goes light green beeps twice and starts flashing the red light and so then unable to turn my ps3 on.


This is known as the yellow light of death(ironic i know). This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board giving you the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty. If the unit is not under warranty go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can get your console up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers the whole console, not just what we repaired. We also offer extended warranties up to 4 years at additional cost. The cost of repair is $80 and includes round trip shipping. If you have any other questions/concerns feel free to email support@wiredextreme.com or call toll free 1-888-389-3038.

Green light comes on but nothing else turns on


I'll give you the quick story of what they did. They "bricked" the PSP. This is a term used by all PSP hackers. When you try to hack the system so you can play pirated games on the system, you will occasionally get an error that causes the system to be "bricked". They use the word "brick" because once it happens, the PSP becomes as fun as a brick. You really can't do much about it. Your best bet is to call Sony and see what they can do for you. If you know anyone else that knows what they're doing with PSPs, you could always ask them to fix it for you, but Sony would be the easiest. They won't do it for free, but they will fix it for you. 1-800-345-SONY

Sound like a major hardware problem. Check on your warranty and see if it's covered. Otherwise you might be out of luck.
