When I turn it up, only the green light comes and stays for about 10 seconds, no display or sound. what can i do?


I guess your PSP is bricked. Have you done either of the following;
1.) Update PSP Firmware and interrupted it before it finished 2.) Installed a Custom Firmware (CFW) to play homebrew (games in Memory Stick)
If yes, it's certain that your PSP is bricked. There are easy ways to unbrick your PSP depending on your PSP version and MotherBoard. If you need help in unbricking your PSP, please give the following detail;
1.) Slim or Phat 2.) PSP Version (1000, 2000, 3000) 3.) MotherBoard (if available)
If you have known your MoBo to be a TA088v3, consider bringing it back to S0ny for MoBo replacement or have it replaced if you can buy one. Consider a new MoBo that is not a TA088v3 like TA085 or TA088v2 because these boards have recovery menu when installed with CFW.

Well my psp at first had a version of 3.71(i could play iso games)... then i updated it to 6.00 (i can't play iso games)....now i want to make it 3.71 ....how is that possible?....could you tell me step by...


Hi There!
Honestly, downgrading the firmware is tedious compared to upgrading it. I would suggest you have someone who has the technical knowledge to do this. Failed downgrade could lead to a bricked psp. Which will render it useless. Some can be reflashed and will work back while some cannot.
However, you can purchase a Pandora battery for you PSP. Remember: You CANNOT downgrade your PSP with any firmware higher than 3.50 without a Pandora's Battery.
You may check this link for a self-help guide in making your own Pandora battery. This is for a PSP slim model.

Hope that helps!

I cant download FREE psp games to my PSP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


i'm sorry this might sound as a bad news to you but if you are running on an official firmware, the only free games you would get are demos which you can download from the playstation network via your psp apart from that, there are no methods of getting free psp games that would run fine on official firmwares.
although there is an alternative of downgrading your psp to a custom firmware which would allow you to play homebrew games or allow you to download psp games onto your memory stick and play them.
it is important for you to note that downgrading your psp is not safe and it also requires quite an amount of expertise. it is advised you give it to an expert if you are to opt for this option.

well if its a 3000 ur out of luck, im sorry but you cant downgrade 3000, if you have a 2000 or below then you need a pandoras battry and only phat batterys can be pandorized and you need the necessary firmwares and custom firmwares,

pandora and magik stick cannot be used with psp 3k models.. you have to wait until a working exploit is found.. and dont EVER upgrade your psp if you want to do something with it.. google is you friend. take a look at mohh exploit.. still in the verry beginning.. but very promising.

Iso/cso won't run to PSP version 4.20


You cannot play .iso or .cso files (or any homebrew games) on your PSP unless you have firmware 1.5 or a custom firmware. Any "off-the-shelf" firmware such as 4.2 will not support these types of files. They will just show up as "Corrupted Data".

You can go through the process of downgrading your firmware from 4.2 to 1.5, then from 1.5 you may upgrade to a custom firmware such as 5.00 m33-4. Doing so would require a good deal of technical know-how and a LOT of patience. If you do not want to risk ruining your PSP, do NOT try this. Research methods of downgrading such as "Pandora's Battery" and other firmware downgraders.

You were able to download games from the PSP website because they are programmed to play on the current firmware. Even if you were to (somehow) properly convert the .iso or .cso files to an EBOOT.PBP file, it would not run unless you have firmware 1.5 or custom.

Saving .iso games


if you're running the official sony firmware (not a hacked version) you might as well forget iso's and homebrew for now. you'll have to downgrade your firmware first then go back to a custom firmware. i haven't been keeping up w/ the psp hacking scene lately, and i'm not sure what is the latest firmware that can be downgraded. a good place to check for more info is psp.qj.net as well as their forums. hope that helps!
