How to fix a psp that has been canceled the update then got a black screen when you open?

If the firmware update gets interrupted, it corrupts the PSP's operating system, and will not boot. This is called "bricking" your PSP, and seems to be the case here.

You will have to send in your PSP to Sony to be fixed. There are options posted online like hacker's tools to fix bricked PSPs, but this will void any existing warranty, and will usually leave a footprint that Sony support can detect, and will refuse service if they discover that you have tampered with your PSP.

The safest choice is to have it sent in to support for them to re-install everything.

Sorry, theres nothing you can do about it. PSPs with a ta088v3 motherboard CANNOT be hacked. If you try it, you'll brick it. There is no way to unbrick a ta088v3. sorry if thats not what you wanted to hear.

Wont turn on but charging light does when plugged in

your psp might be bricked did you turn it off during an update or instaling custom firmware if you did depending on the date code you may be able to use a pandora battery, also there are three date ranges for the psp 2000 these date code correlate to which generation of 2000 it is the best 2 are the first and the third however the second gen 2000 cannot be fixed because of the type of mother board used in its manufacture. i reccommend replacing the mother board or buying a new psp a new mother board is easy and should only take about 30 minutes to replace

No software on psp deleted accident

If you have a warrantied PSP, take it in for service - there are many legitimate ways an official sony firmware upgrade can be interrupted and cause havoc to a psp.

If your PSP is a PSP-3000 or a Slim & Lite with a TA-088 v3 or higher motherboard, this is the only way to fix it, period.

If you have an earlier model, it can be fixed using a Pandora (service) battery and a 'magic' memory stick. These can be created from any psp already running custom firmware. You can also buy them online, and if you look in the local classified ads website where you live, you can probably find people offering what they will call a downgrading service.

I cannot run through the steps here to create your own, but tutorials are all over the net and sites like youtube.

Hey, How to check the motherboard of PSP TA-088. what is the version of TA-088? It means TA-088 v1 or TA-088 v2 or TA-088 v3. Could anyone me about this.

There is quite a bit of speculation on how to determine this. The following site will give you some insight: . If it is to load custom firmware, there is no harm in trying the pandora battery. It does not brick the v3 PSP. It just does not work. I tried it myself. Hope it helps.
