It seems that your PSP is bricked. A firmware issue. Have you tried replacing the memory card and test if it solves the issue?

My battery fell out while updating my psp, now the green light comes on but the screen stays blank!

Probably because some of the data got corrupted.
To reset to factory defaults (which is what I recommend doing), turn off your psp, hold start+select+square+triangle and then turn on your psp.
It should now boot up normally but with no data on it.

Green light goes out after 10 sec no screen

1. Check battery - try recharging it overnight
2. Check integrity of AC charger if it still working properly. Or you can try charging the psp overnight using USB charger.

Black/blank screen w/green power light

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.

My 10 yr old son was putting in a new game into his pap and a white screen came up staying something about downloading v something. he chose yes and while it was downloading he interrupted it by turning it...

Never turn off the PSP while updating!

Now, its bricked!

Try this, what you do is take out the Battery, plug in the charger, put the Battery back in... turn PSP on. See if it'll work.

Works for me!
