Psp broke

i dont believe this is a bricked issue. it cold be a short on the board or wiring some where inside. this noticable if it works after you lightly tap it like mine. but once it comes on it usally will stay on tapping a briked psp does nothing.

Psps does load any discs

Ok Crowd,

All of you need to send your PSP off for repair. The UMD drives not reading is common fault of the PSP and the drive will need to be replaced. The power on Problem is possiblly a defective motherboard. They can be repaired.

Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then select "Video Game Consoles" on the next screen. Pick a good REpair shop that has experience in repairing PSP's. Ask them if they know what a UMD is. Then Ask them if they have ever replaced a UMD drive. If so they know what they are doing. Find a good price

Psp wont turn on

If you are somebody another person had done the mistake while updating your PSP. For eg: 1) Removed the battery. 2) Unplugged the charger of your PSP. 3) Removed the UMD. then it is possible that your PSP is bricked it means it is useless untill you replace the motherboard with a new one.
