Re: Brocken psp

Try getting the backlight fixed. My psp kept doing that n my friend fixed it. He took it apart, tinkered w/ some screws, put in something new, and it was fixed.

Ok in left my psp charging for 3 days the green light turns on but the screen does not it stays black and my friend was updating my psp the he sayed that the battery fell then it turned off and it does not...

Ok it sounds as if your friend has bricked your PSP. Please be careful when you are updating your PSP as this will brick your PSP. Let me give you a quick overview of what happens when your PSP updates, first of all your PSP will erase it's operating system and write a new Operating system, this is why it will not turn on completely if you lose power while it's updating. ONLY UPDATE YOUR PSP IF IT'S COMPLETELY CHARGED AND PLUGGED IN FOR SAFETY REASONS. I will not post the solution to this problem for it is too long to post up here, YouTube has many videos on how to un-brick your PSP. Best of luck, for the solution you can email me at
