Re: psp

Send it to sony to get it repaired or use a pandoras battery with a pandoras memory stick with an unbricking option on it... there is much much more detail to this which I wont explain here just look it up and this will get you started.

Psp green light on, but no booting or anything. its not a fault of Software... its Hardware for Sure! any help?


If the green light comes on, but the unit won't power up, you could have a battery problem.

Clean out the battery compartment. Use a can of compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris. If you left the battery in while you stored the unit, look around the connectors for any sign of corrosion that could be affecting the connection.

Plug the PSP into the power adapter with the battery still inside. If this doesn't work, remove the battery and see if the PSP powers on with the adapter only. If it does, then the battery likely needs to be replaced.

Boot the unit in recovery mode. The PlayStation Portable is like a small computer with a tiny hard drive. And just like a computer, sometimes it gets scrambled; booting in recovery mode can help you identify or correct the problem.

Determine if your PSP has been "bricked." If the PSP was turned off for any reason during a firmware update, it can cause "bricking," so named because it renders your PSP into a useless, plastic brick. Buying a new PSP or sending yours to Sony for repair are your only options if this has occurred.

Psp power indicater lights up green but does no turn on.

It's probably bricked (dead). We need to know what's your last activity before it bricked. Mostly, bricked PSP is due to interruption during firmware update. Or when you install a CFW (Customized Firmware) by using ChickHen.
If your PSP is the slim type, you need to know what type of Motherboard it has. You will be lucky if you don't have a PSP with TA088v3 MoBo. Since you can no longer turn on your PSP, you will have no chance knowing the MoBo. But this procedure below is worth the try;
1.) Turn off your PSP by pressing the power button at least 10 seconds and green light is gone. 2.) While turned off, do one of the following until you boot into Recovery Mode;
a.) press the "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button. b.) press both "L" and "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button.
3.) If you are successful booting your PSP into recovery mode, google on how to recover your flash0 file...

If you are on a PSP 3000, you are screwed, PSP is bricked, and can NOT be fixed. If you are on custom firmware, on a fully hacked PSP 1000 or 2000, you can use HellCat's Recovery Flasher to restore the semi-brick. You have to get a Pro Duo > SD convertor, and get HellCats onto your memory stick, then run it from recovery.

Good Luck!

Picture won't show when turned on?

It sounds like your PSP has been bricked and you need to fix it with a pandora battery kit from The pandora battery kit comes with a memory stick that contains the program to recover your psp and install custom firmwares if you want and the battery places the PSP in service mode to allow it to be operated on by the program. You could try recovering your PSP by making sure its off. Then hold the right R trigger on the PSP and hold it while turning it on. If you see a PSP recovery menu then you can recover it without a pandora battery kit. It may take a few times before it enters the recovery menu, but note that all PSP's dont have them on there.
