PSP wont turn on

I put Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force in my psp, pressed on home and then clicked on the box saying Yu-Gi-Oh! and a msg appeared saying " Updating Internet Browser, do not turn off the psp". this is a new psp and to my knowledge I dont have Internet access, a message then appeared saying " Updating programme has failed " this happened at 43% the psp then turned off and will now not come back on. The green power light comes on momentarily but then turns itself off. Can you tell me if this problem is curable.

Re: PSP wont turn on

That's problem occurs when there is some problem with the firmware, and any some process under psp has running. you'll need pandora battery to solved the problem. when using pandora, you can go into service mode of your psp, then downgrading your psp back to default setting. what type of your psp? Slim or phat?

Please let i know if you experience any problems in the future. I hope i can make the appropriate adjustments, so do not hesitate to contact me.  visit myBlog  here.

How can i downgrade my ver 6.10 software psp????

Hello there

Download MPH Downgrader and Firmware version you want(e.g 1.50) to the Windows-based computer. Connect the PSP Slim to the computer's USB port using the USB connector. Transfer the two programs to the main folder of the PSP Slim. Disconnect the PSP Slim from the computer's USB hub when the transfer is complete.

Turn on the PSP Slim. Go to the Settings/USB Connection in the Home menu and select the EBOOT.PBP file in the PSP\GAME\UPDATE update folder. Extract the MPH Downgrader zip file to the root folder of the PSP. Click OK using the X button if you are prompted that this will replace some files.

Go to Photo/Memory Stick in the Home menu. Wait as the screen goes black and numbers appear. Wait two minutes and then press and hold the power switch until the PSP Slim turns off. Release the power switch.

Wait as the PSP Slim turns on and reboots. Go to Game/Memory Stick in the Home menu and select PSPS Update version 1.50. Press the X button to start the update.

Wait as the update finishes and presents an error message. Press the O button to restart the PSP.
