First of all do not insert memory stick in PSP ON mode and if you are using memory stick with red strip as shown in image so please try it with the bottom type as shown in image then too your problem is not solved it means in your PSP there is memory card module PCB which is faulty.

When my psp is updating , the power turn off and psp doesn't turn on

Try this:
Remove the PSP battery and memory stick from the device. You will use these again so keep them close.
Insert the magic memory stick into the PSP card reader. The memory stick holds the firmware that will be flashed onto the PSP.
Insert the pandora battery and the PSP will turn on automatically. Press the "X" button twice to flash the firmware to the PSP. Press "X" again to shut down the PSP.
Reinsert the normal battery and memory stick and turn the PSP back on. Plug the PSP into its charger and go through the normal update process again by selecting "System Update" on the PSP menu.

Have you tried to format in the PSP. Go to System in the main menu, then system settings, then format memory stick. I purchased a new chip for mine and it did not show as storage till i did this. Insert or remove chip only when unit is powered off. If it still does not work take it to the store and have it checked. Hope it helped.

My PSP will only turn on without a disc in it then if I insert a disc and try and run it it will just turn off. Also I've tried running a small game from the memory stick but again the PSP will just turn...

Try hooking up just the ac adapter to the psp without the battery hooked up to it.

If the psp turns on then try to load a disc, if it doesn't shut down then the battery is bad, if it still shuts down then that means the main board is bad cause it can't handle the power coming from the umd drive.

It wont turn on

hi , This problem can be caused when u have a memory stick inserted on your psp . so first of all remove the memory stick and UMD from the unit also remove the battery now wait for 30 sec and just insert the battery to the PSP if it turns on that means ther is some problem with the memory stick so try formatting the memory stick
and if there if still proplem persist that means there is some internal firmware of hard ware error so in that case contact SONY

See if you can format your memory stick first through your computer than you might be able to format after with your psp.

Also Where did you get your memory stick? Depending on where you bought it (if you bought it on-line) it might be a fake. I would contact the seller for a refund or replacement if that's the case.
