Ms Piggy....

It sounds like your PSP is "bricked". Have you upgraded the firmware or added custom firmware? If so, you'll need a Pandoras battery/memory card to repair. Try ebay for those.

Good luck

Im using psp 3001 with version 5.03 PROME-4...Ads by GoogleInflatable Movie Screens www.OpenAirCinema.usSeamless, high quality screens Portable, washable, outdoor screens By richmond_sic on Mar 07,...

You should have not installed ChickHen in your PSP 3001 since there are no known ways so far, not even by Dark Alex, to fix it from "Brick"-ing. YOur attempts to remove the battery and so on to fix it is futile because even Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick won't work on those versions of PSP.
Try sending it to S0ny...
If you intend to buy a new PSP, either buy those Slim that is version 2000 and those that are NON (remember NON) TA088v3 MoBo. From this MoBo onward to PSP 3000s, all is unhackable and cannot be fixed from Brick.

PSP charged all night and will not power on

You're not being clear.
You say "I get nothing"

Do you get a green light? Or no green light?
What if you plug it in? Do you get a green light if it's plugged in with no battery inside?

If you get a green light with the battery in but nothing on the screen, your PSP is bricked.

If the PSP works while plugged in but not with the battery it's either having motherboard problems or the three prongs on the back of the PSP are not making good contact with the battery.

Green light comes on but nothing else turns on

I'll give you the quick story of what they did. They "bricked" the PSP. This is a term used by all PSP hackers. When you try to hack the system so you can play pirated games on the system, you will occasionally get an error that causes the system to be "bricked". They use the word "brick" because once it happens, the PSP becomes as fun as a brick. You really can't do much about it. Your best bet is to call Sony and see what they can do for you. If you know anyone else that knows what they're doing with PSPs, you could always ask them to fix it for you, but Sony would be the easiest. They won't do it for free, but they will fix it for you. 1-800-345-SONY

Power problems

Hi Gohan102,


Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....
