You can downgrade your psp without a pandora battery but you will need a Lumines game hack,Follow these steps to do so.
Download the 5.50.pbp file. Rename the 5.50.pbp file to "UPDATE.PBP." Connect your PSP to your computer with the USB cable and select "USB Connection" to place the PSP into USB mode. A window will appear on your computer and you will be able to see the PSP memory stick files.
Download the downgrade pack. Open the "MS_ROOT" folder from the downgrade pack. Right-click the "PSP" folder and click "Copy." Go back to the PSP memory stick and right-click it. Click "Paste" and "Yes" to overwrite the data.
Right-click the UPDATE.PBP file that you downloaded in step one and click "Copy." Open the "PSP" folder on the PSP memory stick and you will see the "GAME" folder. Open this folder to reveal the "UPDATE" folder. Right-click the "UPDATE" folder and click "Paste" to transfer the update file to your PSP memory stick. The downgrade pack and 5.50 update file are on the PSP memory stick. Press the "O" button to safely disconnect the PSP from your computer.
Insert the Lumines PSP game into the PSP drive. Select the game from the PSP menu to start. Press the "Start" button when you get to the Lumines start screen. Your screen will blink red and will turn completely blue. You will be brought back to the PSP screen. It is important to not press any buttons before you get to the Lumines start screen.
Go to the game section of the PSP menu and you will now be able to see the "x.yz update" application. Select it with the "X" button to start it. Press the "X button from the main menu to start the downgrading process. Press "X" again to reboot the PSP when the downgrade has completed. You have now downgraded your PSP to 5.50 firmware.
Ensure that your UMD cases are clean and not full of smudges, scratches and finger prints. You can repair scratches with your typical scratch remover found at your local technology or music store.
You can also check that you do not have any debris around the laser diode and lens inside the PSP. Please be careful and only use lint free cloth (micro fibers or cloth made for cleaning eye glasses) to ensure debris is removed.
Your Laser lens is dirty. You need to get some foam type ear swabs, not cotton, like Q-tip. You should be abkle to find these at a local drug store. Dampen the swab in something like Windex and swab the lens of the laser. Use the opposite end of the swab which should be dry to polish the lens delicately. This may get you back working again. If not your laser has much more severe problems, and probably needs to be replaced. In this case, click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then on the next screen select "Video Game Consoles" Pick a repair shop to service your PSP. If you think you want to do it yourself, be aware it is very easy to damage the PSP beyond reasonable repair.
Check the UMD for any kind of foriegn obstruction. You can use a pencil with an eraser to psin the UMD manually. Do this to check to be sure the UMD is not scrubbing or sticking inside its case. Try a different UMD to see if its the UMD or the UMD drive inside your PSP.
If you find it is the PSP. Services listed with Fixya can repair your PSP. Click on "REpair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. In the next screen, Click on "Video Game Consoles". Pick a good PSP repair service.
Try a different disk? I've found that sometimes when you turn on the psp and you're in the game menu of the PSP menu, the UMD won't be there, but if you go over to music or something, and go back to game, it will have returned.
