Re: psp not working help

yea, the psp is bricked, u need a MMS and a pandora battery to reinstall the firmware on it.

give the PSP back to your friend and tell him/her to fix it, or borrow his/her pandoras battery and a MMS and attempt to do it your self.

PSP Not Working

Hey, try taking the faceplate and screen off. Get a blowdryer and dry. This sometimes fixes the problem.

Faulty psp

This could be a very simple problem. I have seen so many PSP's with this problem. There is something stuck in the gears that move the PSP left to right. Most of the time it is a plastic piece that breaks off the door hinge. If you are good at taking electronics apart, you can do this in 10 minutes.
