Hi Inga,


Remove the battery for 2 days, Run hair dryer on it for aout 15 minutes too. keep it in a dry place for at least 2 days with no power from battery at all. If this doesn't work your probably not going to get it to work again with sending it to a repair shop for estimate of damages and repairs needed to recover.

Check out my website, we may be able to get it working again for a reasonable price.Just get the battery out  and keep it out for at leat 2 days. Hit it with a hair dryer again before you put the battery back in.

My psp fell and the battery pack fell out when I put the battery back the psp green light and sound of the game came on but the screen is plack and if I put it on and press R it still doesn't come on....

You most likely damaged the sensor that create the images on the screen. As for fixing it, it is fixable but it will be pricy. I would shop around and see how much they would charge to fix it because buying a new one might be more beneficial depending on what model you have.
