Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

5 Answers

Power issue, blank screen.

Hey there, I would like to start off by saying, this is NOT a brick for my PSP, a brick occurs when you are doing something with the firmware, I was simply listening to music, turned it off, then tried to turn it on later. Okay, recently, I was using my PSP, with my 2GB memory stick duo, listening to music. I turned off my PSP, put it in my case, and then put it into my backpack. 2 hours later, I pulled it out, and tried to turn it on. The green light turns on, but the the system itself will not start up. With a brick, the green light would turn OFF after about 30 seconds, the light will stay on as long as my battery has life. I have tried everything, except taking it apart and checking for a short, or checking for dust, mainly because I lack the tools neccessary. If there is any sort of proffessional opinion on this, I would be very happy to hear it. Thanks!

Don't listen to dnbull. i looked at the PSP sites, and apperantly that kind of thing will only happen if it got screwed because you shut of power while it was loading, downloading, saving etc. and it will take about 2-4 hours of time for the data to restart. Put in on a charger and leave it on for a long time and it should restart. you might not have all your files though... sorry...:(

I was playing when the the screen went blank with the green light on. It only occurs with this chinese 3600mAh aftermarket batty. AC power and the original battery brought it back.

For psp what does bricked mean


"Brick" means corrupting your Firmware, the system that makes your PSP run. Bricking can be caused by either "interrupted update of firmware" or attempt to install "PSP Hacks" also known as Jailbreaks or Custom Firmware (CFW).
Some PSP Models can be revived when bricked by using a system called "Recovery Menu" which becomes available when the PSP was running a CFW before it bricked. Another way of unbricking a PSP including those that runs Original Firmware is using Pandora Battery and a Magic Memory Stick.
However, there are PSP MOdels that cannot be unbricked. These are the PSP 2000 Slim that have the Motherboard TA088v3 and other higher end. The worst PSP Motherboard is the TA088v3 because once bricked, PSP becomes a lovely paperweight without game functions and possibility to be revived.

After update, it says DADADADADA. what do i do to not make it say that?


You have to reload the old firmware. I believe the Firmware you just installed is either not compatible with your PSP (if its CFW) or your update was not successfully accomplished. By doing a revert to previous firmware, you will see if the same message appears or not. I would suggest not to upgrade your firmware if you don't need anything to that new firmware.
Be careful with installing CFW, you might brick your PSP.

Hey my Friends...... I put a software to my psp 3006.... so after putting it, my psp didn't turn on? can anyone help me to solve this problem????


Hi there...
Hmmm, I think what we've got here is a BRICKED PSP 3006.
Unluckily, those models of PSPs is not yet completely hackable because S0ny made sure that Homebrew games cannot be played with it. However, if you were careful with your installation on CFW (that's Custom Firmware), you should have known that 5.50 GenD3 or higher CANNOT be installed on these models as it will only brick your PSP.
Sad to say that there is yet a way to unbrick your PSP. Even the greatest PSP Hackers may have given up to their quest in finding a way to unbrick these kinds of PSP, starting from PSP 2000 with TA088v3 Motherboards...
You may try to send it to S0ny and tell them it happened because you were updating your firmware from their site and it tripped off while you were updating... They MIGHT be able to do something for it...

Ok so my psp is not turning on the battery is fully charged the green light turns on for acouple of seconds then turns off any tips


Hmmmm... I guess we have a bricked PSP here...
First, I should be right with this - either you tried to install a Custom Firmware (ChickHen) or you were updating and something went wrong.
In order to UNBRICK your PSP, we need to know the following;
1. Your PSP make (Slim or Phat) 2. Your PSP Motherboard (if available)
However, try doing this as this might work if you have a Motherboard that can be recovered from bricking;
1. Press and hold "R" while switching on your PSP. 2. If your PSP boots on into a "Recovery Mode", you're a lucky guy 3. Scroll down to "Run Program at /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP" and do the rest to recover your PSP's firmware.
Get back if you still have a dead PSP.

How can my psp play iso game or activate other function? I try to play a Iso game and it says the game coudlnt be started data corrupted. I try using pandora folder it still said games coudlnt be started...


In order to run isos which one downloads online one must first install custom firmware on your psp. The only way to do this is to downgrade your psp to 1.5 which can only be accomplished by using a pandoras battery. These are extemely easy to make and u can look on any website to find directions. They can also be bought for relatively cheap if u dont like the idea of cutting your own battery open. Please note that if u do decide to downgrade and install custom firmware ur psp runs the risk of bricking which will completely break it. Installing custom firmware voids the warrenty so if it does brick you can do nothing about it, do so at your own risk.

The only way to get downloaded PSP games to work is to have custom firmware. Custom Firmware also dont brick your PSP unless you interrupt your PSP while upgrading your PSP.

I cannot view the youtube videos. the player says


From my understanding, you cannot view You Tube videos on the PSP because the PSP uses an older version of flash. If you install a custom firmware on your PSP, watching You Tube videos is possible; however, you run the risk of bricking (breaking) your PSP.

If you have the newest PSP, loading custom firmware is still hard to do. However, before undertaking such ventures, make sure you are aware of the risks.
