I have sony psp slim model 2000 the problem is can't play a game,i try to change memory card with another psp slim but it still can i do.please support me..tq


You'll need to hack the psp slim using a pandora battery. You can get clues on doing this on youtube. Go to youtube and type this search term "Making a psp pandora battery". After getting the right video for this process or alternative you can guy a pandora battery online from an online shop in China. Google this out as i have forgotten the site, you can then move on further and retype this search term 'using pandora battery to hack your psp". This should do.

Your PSP is bricked. I'm not 100% sure but Pandora's Battery should work on your Slim.

Will the psp slim battery will work for the psp phat.

Here is some advice for using the Slim-Style Pandora battery on the Phat PSP:

"Actually, I've messed with the slim Pandora in the Phat PSP's. You don't need to trim anything, just slide the head first into the battery slot and you will have to hold it in while its installing.

Also, if you are trying to use a slim Pandora battery, you will need to plug the Phat PSP into the AC adapter for it to work. The slim battery will not boot the Phat PSP on its own."

This advice is from this thread.

Hints for downloading games for my PSP v3.71

The only way play downloaded games in your PSP is to unlock it and install a custom firmware. This is only possible, for your current firmware, using a Pandora Battery/Kit. After putting a custom firmware like 5.00-m33, you can then save the games in your memory card and play it. Go to and look for tutorials on how to create a pandora kit or you can purchase one in ebay.

Aw,, first up, to make the pandora memstick, check this thread
just start with process 2
(Process #2: Creating the Magic Memory Stick with a bricked psp:(well, of course since your PSP is bricked))
after you've made the pandora memory stick, on to the pandora battery.
now, since your PSP isn't working and you don't have any OTHER PSP(specifically PHAT version) you'll be needing
to hard-mod your to do this? well, first you'll need a cutter, and of course your SLIM battery...the one that came with your PSP...
first must open the battery...and you'll be doing this by using the cutter...carefully slice through the line at the sides of your SLIM battery...just be careful or you might mess it up inside...
then, after opening it, carefully prop out the circuit board of the battery...see this image
then still using the cutter, carefully cut the golden line (indicated by the small blue circle in the pic)...maybe 15 to20 runs of the cutter will do (that's what i did at least). Just dnt press too hard or you might cut through the whole circuit board ok? Then after cutting the gold line, you're through...just close the battery again and tape it up at the sides (i used packaging tape with mine, heheh...) and you're through with the pandora battery!
you'll know that you're successful making the battery when you put the battery in the PSP and the green LED light automatically turns on but there isn't any display on your PSP's screen. If it doesn't turn on automatically, just try to run a few cuts again on the line on the Batt's circuit board.
now, when you've done making youre magic memstick(or pandora memxtick) and pandora battery, just follow the steps on the link i indicated at the top where it says
"Running the files:
----------------"...and when finished, to make you're battery "normal" again, using a pencil, remember the line that you've cut before on the battery's circuit board? Just run your pencil through a few times to reconnect it and you're done. You should have your PSP running again...
