Sorry, but you can only go get it repaired for around 50+ dollars.
Or you can modify your battery.. cant explain it here.

How do I mod ps3 games please help me I have tried a long to figure it out

You have to have CFW (Custom Firmware) that runs homebrew to use game mods (which is illegal thanks to Sony). Be warned, before you go off looking for a guide to do this yourself: no system running Sony's Official Firmware above 3.55 can be modded to run homebrew or unofficial apps.

What do you mean by HEN?

Hi b_acoba,

HEN or ChickHEN works as a homebrew enabler for all PSP models (1000, 2000 and 3000) and allows execution of homebrew games and apps on 5.03 Official firmware. It can allow you to play games such as Bugz!, Jellycar or run apps such as pspfiler and PSPTube. Homebrew enhances the experience of a normal PSP without any faulty side-effects.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to reset my psp version 5.03

Are you asking how to roll back official firmware updates?
There's no official way of doing this. Depending on your model of PSP you could possibly use what's known as a "pandoras battery" you would however need access to someone with a custom firmware on their PSP.

My firmware is 5.03 I need custom firmware/CFW enabler via HEN ?

this only works for 1000 series and 2000 series!

i have a pandora's battery that my friend made for me and i simply use this and files on a memory stick from a program on this site! go to kanelitas message and he will tell you how to install the files needed to mod your psp! if you have a newer psp 2000 series im not sure you will be able to make a pandoras battery with the programs provided by psp pandora deluxe! 1000 may be able to run pandora installer but i havent tryed it with a regular fat battery on a 1000 series!

So my point is i can tell you how to install the files with psp pandora deluxe to your memory stick but if you cant make a pandoras battery with the programs provided it may not work with official firmware!

A pandoras battery lets you run a program that lets you install a m33 driver[ modded software ] so in the hopes that you have a 2000 series or lower here i go!

tools! 1. One PSP 2. USB cord for PSP 3. at least 512 mb memory stick pro duo 4. Windows xp [ sorry but i havent tested installing the modding files with vista i cant say vista will install pap pandora deluxe!] 5. PSP CHARGER always have it on a charger nko matter what until you cease modding!

ok So Kanelita states you dont need a pandoras battery! wow i cant say thats true! cause see since i have a pandoras battery i have a treasure im lucky to have obtained. so heres what i did with a pandoras battery! but he claims you dont so stiil try it!
