PSP 3001 brand new wont charge!! Help Please!!

It sounds like you need a replacement part. If you just got it for Christmas, I would take it back to the store where purchased. If not, I would redeem my warranty, and send it to Sony. If you can't do either of those, then you will have to buy this part:

PSP cannot turn on

keeping Lithium ion batteries(found in ur psp) idle for such a long time without charging may discharge them compleatly and even if you try to charge them they will not function. this seems to be a problem with your battries not ur PSP. try to get it replaced from the dealer you bought the PSP from. hope this solves your problem.. :D

Will not take a charge.

If it's a really old model, the battery may be completely used up. Rechargable batteries don't last forever. If you've ever had a cell phone for a few years, you'd notice that a full charge lasts less and less as time goes on. Anyway, try cleaning the little gold, metal surfaces where the battery and the psp meet. If someone else you know has a psp, try their battery. If it is just your battery, I'm sure you can find a replacement on eBay for pretty cheap.

""screen that looks more like a computer screen with a bunch of different symbols like a house and such""

This is officially called XMB, stands for Cross Media Bar, basically it's the operating interface for the psp, you can change settings, and play music video games surf internet ect.

Remove your UMD, start your psp, go to settings, system settings, restore default settings, and try again.

Alternatively, you could try to update your firmware, as the game might need a higher version system. Please refer to the manual given below.
