    You have more than likely ''bricked'' your PSP. Does the screen turn off after a few seconds, or does the screen just stay black, while the green light stays on ?

Unfortunately, you were very stupid in doing what you did! You have "Bricked" your PSP. When it is updating, it is messing with the built in flash memory in the PSP. Normally it is OK, because it is designed to do it, but you stopped it Half-way through, so some important files are missing, and the rest are mixed between two, different firmwares. To fix it you need to "Un-brick" it. This Process is the same as the one for Installing Custom Firmware. You need to buy a Pandora's Battery kit. This kit is a memory stick and a Pandora's battery. The battery makes the PSP boot from the memory stick, which allows you to delete the internal flash memory, and then install the Firmware again. "Datel" are the best people to get the Battery from, and you can choose where to get the (Pandora) memory stick from. You can make both of them, but I wouldn't recommend making the battery, because it is quite risky and could damage your PSP. This is a good one "http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pandora-Battery-PRE-CONFIGURED-DUMMIES-Internet/dp/B002MR7COQ/ref=dp_cp_ob_vg_h__title_2 If you don't go for this one, make sure you get the right one for your PSP don't make the mistake of buying the cheaper, PSP phat battery, because it doesn't work! Good Luck!

My psp won't turn on at all, I was playing it and the screen went black, but the green light was still on, I thought it had crashed so took the battery pack out and when i put it back, nothing. It wont...


your psp is bricked, this usually occurs when your psp shuts off during an update, or you tried to install custom firmware and failed.

your only hope is to get it repaired, or use to use a pandora's battery and try to recover it yourself.

Reset psp,once turned on doesnt work?.


Looks like you might of run an update of some sort from the UMD disc or memory card. Take the battery out and then put it back after 15 mins.

If it still doesnt work im afraid you may of bricked it by forcing shutdown on the PSP.

There are people on ebay who might be able to help if you cant get the PSP to work.

Just type 'bricked psp' into search and tell the person what happened. It shouldnt cost more than £15 to sort the PSP out.

My 10 yr old son was putting in a new game into his pap and a white screen came up staying something about downloading v something. he chose yes and while it was downloading he interrupted it by turning it...


Never turn off the PSP while updating!

Now, its bricked!

Try this, what you do is take out the Battery, plug in the charger, put the Battery back in... turn PSP on. See if it'll work.

Works for me!
