Re: psp upload error

Hi Magimay, If you still have the receipt, I would suggest contacting Sony support and Returning it for repair. The last one I did was bought in October 2005 and they covered it, and sent me a Refurbished replacemnt within 10 days. Here is SCEA contact info: SCEA Consumer Services 1-800-345-SONY (7669) Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM PST Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST If you do not have receipt, my service The Playstation Clnic can repair it for $25 plus parts, and shipping. Contact

PSP black screen

IF PSP is being disturbed or power went off by any means while upgrading system software. It is sure that your PSP is bricked and now you had the only option to get repaired by a technician and it is done with the help of Pandora's Jigkick Battery. If you required any more info please write.

he bricked his psp.
you should try to get ahold of another psp that has a cracked screen or somethin and switch the mother boards out...

or take it to a game shop like gamestop and have them put in another motherboard

Son interrupted a firm ware update now PSP won't turn on

my investigations suggest that your son has "bricked" the PSP. Basically the memory that stores the firmware is corrupt and apparently only a main board replacement will fix the issue.

A google search found THIS. I have no affiliation with them and have never used them though.. might be worth a call at least??
