I guess you guys must tried to update the firmware and powered it off half way. Your psp is likely to be bricked.

For some DIY job, follow the link below:

Or ask sony to repair, which may also be charged.

My kindle will not turn off

Did you try

  1. Frozen Screen or Unresponsive Kindle
    • 1 Unplug the Kindle.
    • 2 Move the power button to the right and release. You should see a green LED light for two seconds.
    • 3 Move the power button to the right and hold for five seconds. The green light should blink three times and then the screen will go blank. Release the power button after it does.
    • 4 Turn the device back on by sliding the power button to the right and releasing it.
    Perform a Hard Reset
    • 5 Perform a hard reset if the previous steps are unsuccessful or if the Kindle screen is showing lines.
    • 6 Slide the power button to the right.
    • 7 Hold for 15 seconds.
    • 8 Recharge the battery if the device continues to be unresponsive.
    • 9 Restart the Kindle after charging.

Kindle fire screen is blank

Try doing a hard reset of your Kindle Fire as advised on the Kindle Fire Support web site for dealing with Screen problems

If you still have a problem after doing the above, then you follow the additional steps advised on the above web page, i.e. ensure the Kindle Fire is fully charged (the power indicator has changed from Orange to Green) and that you have the latest Software Updates installed (assuming you can view the screen to do so!).

Blank screen when turned on, then there are 2 lights that flash they both have a lock symbol before them one is with an A and the other is with a 1. Everything else lights up but screen is just blank/black

follow these steps & ur issue might get resolved(80% chances):
turn off ur notebook-->take out the battery-->disconnect the charger if its connected to the notebook-->now press & hold the power key for atleast 20 seconds, remember that u have to press & hold the power key & dont release the power key till 20 seconds are over--> & ensure that the notebook is not connected to any power source while u r performing this step niether the battery nor the charger--> also there shouldn't be any peripherals connected to the notebook-->once 20 seconds are over & u have released the power key-->connect the battery & the charger back to the notebook & now try to turn on the notebook-->u might not get a blank screen & ur issue might get resolved....(This whole step is known as power drain & it is done to remove the extra static electricity which sometimes get stored in the notebook & gives a blank screen in return.)

My mp3 player's screen doesn't work

You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it. To reset your Sansa Mp3 player. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. Release the Power switch. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly. If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

Screen Goes Blank

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.
