You bricked your psp when you downloaded your custom firmware. google pandora and look for batterys i cant tell you where exactly because sony has a copyright.
they should have a pandora battery and magic memory stick order the kit they offer and follow the instructions it comes with. that should install your firmware correctly

Does you PSP have custom firmware? If it does, or if you were trying to install custom firmware, you probably BRICKED it. No good, if thats the case.
Were you updating and removed the battery? if so, call Sony, your PSP is done, unless it is an older PSP, then you might be able to fix it.

So i recently bought this psp 2001, the version is 5.00m33-3 and the color is metallic blue. I can run certain games like monster hunter freedom unite and naruto ultimate ninja heroes 3, however , when...


well you are running a custom firmware and its probably having update issues if the custom side of the psp is outweighing the potential to run umd discs efficiently then just update the m33 out of the unit or download a firmware emulator for it i had to on my virgin firmware unit but even these get put out and never updated to run newer firmwares so its a shot in the dark for you but try it so google psp hacks and homebrews and there islots of sites with goodies you can use that custom firmware for even used for loading your iso games rite off the memory card instead of discs ok look around and you will be surprised what a custom psp can do:)

Screen stays black green light comes on for a few seconds.


This sounds like you have "bricked" your psp... there are a few things that can cause this: first would be that you have bricked it trying to install Custom Firmware, another would be that the battery died or it was shut off during an update. You can buy what is called a Pandora Battery and a "magic" memory stick which will reset your PSPs firmware to the original 1.5, or if you still have warranty you can send it in to Sony to get fixed. Pandora batteries and Magic Memory Sticks are sold in a package for about $10-15 on the internet. Good Luck, hope you fix it.

PSP Power light is green but screen is black


BIOS is corrupted on the mainboard inside of the PSP. Unplug the battery and also unplug the ac adapter.

After about 5 minutes plug up just the ac adapter and turn on the psp and see if you get video of any kind. If you can't get into any menus or any video to come up then your motherboard is corrupted and would need to be replaced. Hopefully if your psp is still convered under warranty you can get a replacement.

The only way to get downloaded PSP games to work is to have custom firmware. Custom Firmware also dont brick your PSP unless you interrupt your PSP while upgrading your PSP.

Custom firmware


a custom firmware is just a hacked version of it. you can just Google and find places to download them. also be aware using firmware that's not from Sony could brick your psp.

PSP comes on and plays fine then the screen goes black?


I am having the same problem.  The screen will intermittently come on as blurry.  Like all the text and graphics are doubled, but off by a few pixels.  Doing a sleep and turning it back on usually fixes it.  But I can not operate my PSP for more than like 10 seconds to a minute (varying) until the screen freezes and fades to black from right to left.  This usually occurs by pressing any of the buttons on the front panel.  If I am reading the news in the browser for instance and it is just sitting there, it is fine, then the second I hit a button, fades to black.  After it fades to black, sound and buttons continue to work.  I figured it was a bad LCD, so I purchased a brand new OEM LCD screen and installed it, however, the problem still persists with the new LCD screen, so it is not the screen itself.

Psp trouble


this is a bug/glitch in the psp system i would advise using pandoras battery and just put it back to 1.5 and try using custom firmware it runs smoother if you are not experienced with the psp get someone who is that has custom firmware to make a pandoras battery and downgrade to 1.5 then just update normally if that dosnt work try sending it to sony but this happens to me too sometimes not that often though ever since i went to custom firmware if you do get pandoras battery and want custom firmware look up Angelmikey all his psp videos are to the point and very deatailed hope this helps
