    is the Pandora battery flat? it might just need charging. I am assuming that you have followed all the steps on afterdawn.com or dark-alex.org (the creator) you also need a to be on 3.60 firmware or less i believe. and it needs to be a Fat 1000 or a slim 2000 series model, 3000 cannot be homebrewed (yet.) there is also an alternative homebrew method i found while waiting for my pandora to come in the mail: if you update to Official Firmware 5.00 you can use the "Chick(HEN)" method to firmware patch your PSP. google "chick(hen) OFW 5.00 CFW" and you should have all the answers you need.

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.

Tip

"Hack your PSP" guide




1.)Here are some termins i will use:
OFW-Original firmware,this is your system software
CFW-Custom Firmware,Modified firmware
HEN-Homebrew(home-made)enabler,this is much like a CFW without some features and its not permanent this means its gone after a hard reboot(taking out the battery or completly shutting down the system)
XMB-CrossMediaBar your PSP menus
PANDORA battery-a modified battery that allows you to put your PSP in service mode and do wathever you want with it its used for unbricking,downgrading and installing CFW.
BRICK-Its when you mess with your system software and damage it,its called flashing,its called a BRICK since your PSP becomes useless as a brick.
2.)PSP 1000 (FAT/PHAT)
This is wath it looks like:
maxim615_0.jpg
ANY PSP 1000 is hackble
Ways of hacking:
1.You can use a Pandora Battery that you have to buy
*how to use a Pandora Battery:after you buy a Pandora and a MMS(Magic Memory Stick) insert them in your PSP and you shoud see a menu with CFW you have on your MMS.
2.)CFW or HENs depending on your firmware you can use CFW or HEN without pandora.
PSP 2000 with non V3 MOTHERBOARDS:SAME as PSP 1000

PSP 2000v3/3000/Go:

maxim615_3.jpgGo

1.)On the 2000 and 03g 3000 you can have LightCFW or HEN
on 4g 3000 and GO you can have only HENs
CFWs:5.03 GEN,6.35 PRO-B,5.50 GEN
HENs:6.20 TN HEN

My PSP 2000 slim don't turn on. This happen when I upgraded my firmware version from 5.0 to 5.5 GEN A.After the installation I restart my PSP, but my PSP won't start.LED lights on (green)for only 8...


You CANNOT downgrade to an earlier custom firmware or software sit until a newer custom firmware is available. You will have to make a Pandora Battery and a Magic Memory Stick. Basically you have to open up a PSP battery and cut a certain peg. The magic memory stick is alot easier and doesn't pose a threat to the PSP. Watch a tutorial on youtube for the Pandora Battery so you don't stuff up, there is a different method for the PSP Slim battery

Your PSP is bricked. I'm not 100% sure but Pandora's Battery should work on your Slim.

Somethings wrong with custom firmware 6.10


You have a compatiblity problem. You now cannot control your firmware version. You cannot back rev the firmware. I would suggest you get something called a Pandora Battery. They are cheap, and give you full control over what firmware you want to run, and can even run custom firmware.

Can i fix my psp with PB and MMS


Yes you'll can do this with the pandora battery, this boots the service mode on the psp and lets you install whatever firmware you like,
for custom you'll need a magic Memory stick.

Succes.

Same thing


You cannot play CSO files on official firmware.
As of this date there is no custom firmware v5.51, so I suspect you have installed official firmware.
If this is the case you will need Magic Memory Stick (MMS) and Pandora battery to revert to a previous firmware version.
Pandora battery and MMS will not work on PSP-300x.
