Ok in left my psp charging for 3 days the green light turns on but the screen does not it stays black and my friend was updating my psp the he sayed that the battery fell then it turned off and it does not...


Ok it sounds as if your friend has bricked your PSP. Please be careful when you are updating your PSP as this will brick your PSP. Let me give you a quick overview of what happens when your PSP updates, first of all your PSP will erase it's operating system and write a new Operating system, this is why it will not turn on completely if you lose power while it's updating. ONLY UPDATE YOUR PSP IF IT'S COMPLETELY CHARGED AND PLUGGED IN FOR SAFETY REASONS. I will not post the solution to this problem for it is too long to post up here, YouTube has many videos on how to un-brick your PSP. Best of luck, for the solution you can email me at ace@htcsvc.com

Psp failed to update mlb 09 and now the screen is froze.


take off the battery and try again. If this doesn't help then the copy of the mlb game is defective.

Or you can just update your PSP through your computer (if you have internet)

PSP


Sony Manual says: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/psp/current/settings/update.html

Notice

During an update, do not remove the Memory Stick Duo™ media, do not remove the AC adaptor and do not turn off the system. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged and the system may require servicing or exchange.



But you can still repair that yourself if you are confident, I am giving you a link for instructions and infos.

New game wont start


This is terrible to say, and I feel bad for you. This sounds as though your PSP is Bricked. Tell all your friends if they are asked to upgrade by a game, plug up your PSP to the power cord and keep it charged during the upgrade needed to run the new games. If your power fails during the upgrade, you will BRICK your PSP. Contact Sony, its their fault. www.playstation.com

PSP will not light up when turned on.


You have what is known as a "brick." It is caused by a PSP being improperly turned off in the middle of the update.

When it's coming up with that black screen, it's trying to load but failing to get the OS loaded correctly, which is what is causing the problem.

Your firmware needs to be re-flashed. Fortunately, this CAN be done.

What you'll need:
- A spare memory card (64MB size should be sufficient).
- A spare PSP battery to turn into a Pandora (service mode) battery
- A friend with a working PSP and custom firmware loaded.

Will not update to new version


Hi Bamster,

In your best interest in keeping your PSP running, I suggest you should not try to update your PSP. You are running a high risk of Bricking your PSP if you cannot go through an update smoothly without interuption. If you brick it, that means the PSP is worthless. You will be stuck with a permanent Black screen.

Psp not working


This problem occurs when there is some problem with the firmware, it can be happen If you turn off the system or remove the memory stick during an update. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged. if so, you''ll have psp with blank on screen. try remove all plugin MS, Umd, etc, then press bright button of psp. if isn't work you need pandora battery to downgrading your firmware. hope this help.
