BRICKed PSP is a state where its firmware (or system) no longer functions due to corruption either because of hack attempt or interrupted update of firmware. Depending on your PSP model and Motherboard, unbricking can be possible and (worst) impossible.
If you can give me the following, I may be able to help you.
1.) PSP Make (Slim or Phat)
2.) PSP Motherboard/Mainboard
3.) Last CFW installed before it bricked
You may also try doing this to unbrick you PSP.
1. Remove your battery from the PSP.
2. Put back your battery and charge it (to make sure it won't shut down while doing this)
3. Press "R" and hold it and switch on your PSP, if this fail, repeat 1 & 2 and try number 4
4. Press "R" and "L" and hold it and switch on your PSP.
If your PSP boots on Recovery Menu, you can unbrick it and play with it again.
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.
If your PSP green light comes on for a few seconds, then turns back off -- no audio, no video, the PSP is "bricked" (the system software is corrupted). This usually happens if the PSP is turned off in the middle of an update or if someone tries to downgrade it (or install custom firmware but fails).
