Psp black screen: can't format memory card ;(

I have a psp slim ver3.90 and im having the same problems, but the worst part is.. mine won't read any memory card.. screen is black, no sounds either.. lights keep on flashing.. i recently transferred files from IRshell to my psp root folder to complete the installation process for running remotejoy4irs.. im not sure if i've done it correctly, but the irshell icon was displayed at my games folder so i thought i did it right.. another file under the irshell icon was also displayed and says corrupted data. i ignored it and run the irshell file and instantly my screen went black and there it goes, the sad part and the worst part of my day..

[steps i made for troubleshooting:]

1. i turned off and switched it back on
- lights flashing
- screen black
- failed
2. i tried other sony pro duo memory card from my other psp - failed
3. i tried running my memory card to my other psp slim
- still not reading it
4. i checked the memory slot pins - nothings missing
5. i tried formatting my memory card on my pc & mac -
- computer can't detect the memory so i wasn't able to format it ;(

i would gladly appreciate if someone guide me thru this..
thanks for reading...

My psp is have games on my memory card ..the memory stick is inserted i see the memory..but no games..no space....


Is your PSP modified or do you buy games off PSN? If you try placing ISO games onto your memory card without being modified then the games will not show up.(piracy is wrong btw so only rip your OWN games to ISO format). So if you want to modify your PSP simply search for a guide on Google.

You should have not installed ChickHen in your PSP 3001 since there are no known ways so far, not even by Dark Alex, to fix it from "Brick"-ing. YOur attempts to remove the battery and so on to fix it is futile because even Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick won't work on those versions of PSP.
Try sending it to S0ny...
If you intend to buy a new PSP, either buy those Slim that is version 2000 and those that are NON (remember NON) TA088v3 MoBo. From this MoBo onward to PSP 3000s, all is unhackable and cannot be fixed from Brick.

Psp power up green lights on black screen after a few seconds shuts down psp slim


it sounds like you bricked you psp, if it's not a 3000 or psp go you can probably fix it by buying a pandora battery and magic memory stick.  you can buy them from here http://pandorasales.com/?gclid=CNLk1fzUzqgCFcO8KgodAzI2lA , if you are running a psp 3000 and up, you could try to format your memory stick but it probably won't work.

My psp slim 2000 can't read the memory card


The pins inside the memory card slot are probably twisted, you have to straighten them up.

Blank screen when the unit is switch on


Hello,

Chances are, the unit is bricked. A firmware issue. Try doing a reset.

Also, this could manifest a problem with the memory card. It could be that it is unable to read it. Can you see the memory card indicator blinking? Try to use a different card to troubleshoot the problem.

It's not so easy to erase PSP OS and if even you do it you wil brick your PSP(Your screen will be black when you will turn on it and only green light will flash few times.) I think you have bad memory stick or something like that. Because you are browsing memory stick and not PSP when you connect PSP to computer. Check if you have memory stick inside your PSP. Try to format memory stick in PSP. You can also try to restore PSP deafult settings. If you have Card Reader try to read and format card on computer. If nothing helps buy new memory stick.
