I can fix it, When the system is shut down in the middle of an update the firmware or operating software is being replaced. If it is interupted it's kind of like your computer if it didn't have MS windows. What has to be done is that the firmware has to be replaced on it. You can do this by "hacking it which installs new firmware.

    It's true!
    Google "bricked PSP" this is what has happened to the PSPs that have a
    green light with a blank screen. It always happens when a system is turned off in the middle of an update, or is update related. I work at a video game store and I see it ALL the time. The only way to fix it is to either
    hack it and flash it with new firmware or send it back to sony to let
    them do the same thing.

You are proud owner of a bricked PSP, try to google for pandora's battery and magick memory stick etc. If that doesn't work and you want to repair it yourself, start with the motherboard replacement, there are free PSP repair guides that show you how to take it apart.

PSP - blank screen, yet green light is on.


What is your firmware version? Are you using CFW or OFW?
There is a problem in your update that could have trigger some of your flash0 files it is where your firmware files are placed. Or maybe your firmware does not support Crisis Core : Final Fantasy 7?
If you are on CFW (Custom Firmware). Try loading the recovery menu in boot set-up. Just turn off your psp (not in sleep mode). Leave it for a second or two, then turn on your psp while holding the R trigger. If you are able to load the recovery menu, then you are semi-bricked. If not, only black screen then you are fully-bricked. You will not a PANDORA kit, with a pandora battery and magic memory stick to unbrick your psp.
