SOURCE: PSP Power light is green but screen is black

BIOS is corrupted on the mainboard inside of the PSP. Unplug the battery and also unplug the ac adapter.

After about 5 minutes plug up just the ac adapter and turn on the psp and see if you get video of any kind. If you can't get into any menus or any video to come up then your motherboard is corrupted and would need to be replaced. Hopefully if your psp is still convered under warranty you can get a replacement.

SOURCE: psp 2001 powering on with grean light but black screen.

you bricked your psp when you downloaded your custom firmware. google pandora and look for batterys i cant tell you where exactly because sony has a copyright.
they should have a pandora battery and magic memory stick order the kit they offer and follow the instructions it comes with. that should install your firmware correctly

SOURCE: my psp is shut down cause low battery, it did'nt on again.

So you're having with power of your PSP?

Try this:
1. Try to plug your AC adapter to your PSP without the battery. If the PSP successfully turned on, it means you're having with battery issue.
2. If you're having with battery issue, keep in mind that you need to clean between the battery and the socket connector.

Hope this help! Any questions? Feel free to ask me =]

SOURCE: screen stays black green light comes on for a few seconds.

This sounds like you have "bricked" your psp... there are a few things that can cause this: first would be that you have bricked it trying to install Custom Firmware, another would be that the battery died or it was shut off during an update. You can buy what is called a Pandora Battery and a "magic" memory stick which will reset your PSPs firmware to the original 1.5, or if you still have warranty you can send it in to Sony to get fixed. Pandora batteries and Magic Memory Sticks are sold in a package for about $10-15 on the internet. Good Luck, hope you fix it.

Fourth times when i off the psp and then turn on back, everything hang and not able to play at all. can anyone teach me how do reboot like the shop pple. they charge me each time and not willing to teach...


First, try holding the power switch for 10 seconds, this does a complete reset of the PSP, but doesn't reset it to factory settings.

If that doesn't work, turn it off the same way as above, but this time, hold SELECT, START, square and triangle as the machine starts up. Keep holding them down until you see the screen light come on, but just a blank black screen. It'll show that screen for a few more seconds, then it should be just like it was when you took it out of the box. You'll go through the initial setup again.

Here's the video I got the information from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCsFiWO03d0

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.

When i try to turn on my psp it doesnt work. the light comes for a few seconds a and turns back off. The screen doesnt work too. ITS all black. Last thing i remeber i downloaded something and tried to...


Try to performa a Hard Reset:

1- make sure the battery is fully charged.
2- Hold the power switch to on (up) for at least 10 seconds.

3. switch it back on. (sometimes you have to do it twice, but for now just try doing that one time).

If that doesn't work, try Holding the Power on for 20 to 30 seconds.

If that doesn't work remove the battery overnight.

or try another battery (it could be dead/defective/dead cells, etc.)

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.

PSP comes on and plays fine then the screen goes black?


I am having the same problem.  The screen will intermittently come on as blurry.  Like all the text and graphics are doubled, but off by a few pixels.  Doing a sleep and turning it back on usually fixes it.  But I can not operate my PSP for more than like 10 seconds to a minute (varying) until the screen freezes and fades to black from right to left.  This usually occurs by pressing any of the buttons on the front panel.  If I am reading the news in the browser for instance and it is just sitting there, it is fine, then the second I hit a button, fades to black.  After it fades to black, sound and buttons continue to work.  I figured it was a bad LCD, so I purchased a brand new OEM LCD screen and installed it, however, the problem still persists with the new LCD screen, so it is not the screen itself.
