Re: psp is not turing on

Your psp is bricked, becuz you power it off while it was updating firmware.

If you running on cfw, you still got a chance to repair that.

Let me know which firmware you are running.

    Screen stays black green light comes on for a few seconds.

    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.
    Please Rate, thanks!

    New psp will not charge

    If you have multi meter at home make sure that voltage is coming from the adapter.

    if the psp have some battery backup check the battery level when u put on charge...

    Go to Settings>> System Settings>> Battery Information>>

    If you dont have the equipments to check go your nearest electronic service center or sony showroom. Take your charger with the psp so that they can find out the exact problem

    Oops,... i dropped my psp

    Hey Dude,

    All things are fixable. Try going into recovery mode. This is done by Pressing and holding the R button when powering up the PSP. You then can press the brightness control button to see the firmware. This might help you reboot the PSP. If it is worst than this, you may consoder sending it back to Sony for repair, although they usually do not want to fix a Squooshed PSP. I would not tell them you Sat on it. You can call SONY support at 1-800-345-7669.
    If you cannot get them to Repair it, you can check out my website, . I can fix it for a very reasonable price.
