Sounds like something when wrong during the upgrade process and now your PSP is bricked unfortunately. If it's under 12 months old then call Sony for them to repair/replace. If it's over 12 months however then it's a whole different ball game but you can recover it. You will need to create something called a pandoras battery with a memory stick.

The instructions for this are on this link below.

That's a step by step video on how to do it, I'd suggest watching it first to see whether you can commit to it.

With some research and basic pc knowledge you can hopefully fix your psp. I cannot write you a guide as there are two many things to consider and its much easier for you to look up a guide thats specific to the psp you have.

google " Pandoras battery "

read everything you can then read it again

i hope this points you in the right direction of a fix good luck!

Hi my psp has a green light but nothing showing on the screen


If your green light stays on for about 10 seconds, then shuts itself off, it sounds like your PSP is bricked. What this means is that the system software is corrupted, therefore the PSP is as good as a brick but fear not! This usually occurs if your PSP shuts off in the middle of a system update.

The following website can un-brick the system (reload the system software) onto the PSP for $29!
