It is a long shot, but it has worked. take battey cover off and let the whole system sit in sealed container of rice for a few days.

Memory stick duo won't read!


You probably need a new memory stick module inside the PSP. I have seen this many times in my store and we replaced the board and it worked fine. Contact your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. See if there is a Play-N-Trade within your area. I work at one and we do repairs. I'm not sure if Gamestop or Gamecrazy do repairs.

looks like you fried the chip a bit

you can get it repaired for free if the psp is within waranty
just look for the user manual that came with the PSP and in the back there should be a customer support number ..

PSP screen frozen


For this u got to reset ur psp. The easiest way to reset the PSP is to do a hard-reset. This means holding the power switch in the up position for around ten seconds. This will then shut off the PSP. You may then need to flick the power button either once or twice for the device to come back on. 
The hard reset method is normally sufficient to bring the PSP back to life and resume use, although it may mean you lose your place in the game you were playing.
The alternative to the hard reset is to drop the battery out of the PSP. While I don’t really recommend this, sometimes a hard-reset will fail and this is your only option. To do this, simply drop the battery out of the PSP by sliding the cover open, and then wait for a few seconds. Pop the battery back in and fire up the PSP. Hopefully all will be well.
cheers

New psp will not charge


If you have multi meter at home make sure that voltage is coming from the adapter.

if the psp have some battery backup check the battery level when u put on charge...

Go to Settings>> System Settings>> Battery Information>>

If you dont have the equipments to check go your nearest electronic service center or sony showroom. Take your charger with the psp so that they can find out the exact problem

Gee I wonder why. Just take the battery out and let both the PSP and the battery dry out for a few days.
