My son took it upon himself to upgrade his game system from a website on the internet. now when he trys to turn his console on, the power light comes on but no screen and after 45 seconds shuts itself...


First I should ask what site he "updated" his PSP from? There are so many hack sites that claim free this or that and really can mess things up. What update did he perform? From where? Writing some things can cause a PSP to Brick. Which is in a sense a hard drive crash. Also how one downloads can as well. There are some fuse inside on the main board as well that can go bad. My gut tells me the download went bad and it bricked but I will wait to hear back on my questions.
  • Try this -
  • Remove the battery completely and let the unit power down. Now plug in the AC adapter and turn the unit on leaving the battery out. Do things function normally?
  • Try a hard boot by holding the power button down for 10 full seconds.

  • Regards,
  • Tony

My son's psp prompted for an update - the update failed/timed out and froze the psp. we took the battery out and now it doesn't power up. an employee and a repair shop said he couldn't fix it - it's...


Once a PSP is bricked there is no simple way of unbricking it. If it is still under warranty then contact sony and they will tell you where to send it to have it fixed. If it is outside the warranty date there are sellers on ebay that can repair it for a price.

Black screen


Sounds like your PSP is bricked. What this means is that the systemsoftware is corrupted, therefore the PSP is as good as a brick but fear not!

The following website can un-brick the system (reload the system software) onto the PSP for $29!

Son interrupted a firm ware update now PSP won't turn on


my investigations suggest that your son has "bricked" the PSP. Basically the memory that stores the firmware is corrupt and apparently only a main board replacement will fix the issue.

A google search found THIS. I have no affiliation with them and have never used them though.. might be worth a call at least??

New game wont start


This is terrible to say, and I feel bad for you. This sounds as though your PSP is Bricked. Tell all your friends if they are asked to upgrade by a game, plug up your PSP to the power cord and keep it charged during the upgrade needed to run the new games. If your power fails during the upgrade, you will BRICK your PSP. Contact Sony, its their fault. www.playstation.com
