Inside the psp is a very small ribbon cable that connects your screen to a printed circuit board. Sounds to me like you most likely need to reinsert that cable to get your screen back up. If you open absolutely certain you know what you are doing! Most connections are very small and you will need jewelers screwdrivers to open it. Otherwise bring it in for repair.
Best Luck.

Pc driver for sony psp-1000

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.

I hook everything up and turn it on but i get nothing

if you just built a new pc, and hooked up your power button and reset button and mixed up the possitive and negitive wires you may have fried your motherboard. If you hold the power button for five seconds and your pc does not power down, it's fried.

Green light but nothing comes on

It seems that inside your PSP the LCD Screen Connection cable (The broad One) which is connected to the motherboard is being loose contact so if you can open the PSP try it by re-fixing the cable again otherwise you better go for a technician who will do the same job for you.
