There must be something wrong which you can probably not correct yourself. Seems like there's a problem with it's firmware.
Have you been trying to put hacked firmware onto it? If so there's a pretty good chance your PSP is bricked and the following sugestion won't help you.

You can contact Sony for possible solutions to your problem. If it's still under warranty ask them to exchange it for a new one.

You can find contact info on their site. If you tell me your location I can also look it up for you.

    Why is my solution rated inapropriate. It covers your question. The fact that there's probably nothing neither you or I can do doesn't mean I didn't help. As I said it's probably a technical failure and you need the help of the manufacturer.

    Sorry, I wasn't able to help you myself. And do not take the question about the hacked firmware personal. It's just that Sony won't help you if it is.

My psp froze

i understand ya... I used to deal with psp's before.
Now i want more info.
What model is it? and when you turn it on now what happens?...
This might require you to re-flash your psp.
and by how it sounds to me it seems like you dont really have much experience with psp's
Try searching on google for "Unbrick PSP" you will find more info.
Another way is to go on and search around your location for "psp" reapair ppl. Usually this should not cost more then 20 bucks.

Sounds like the Backlight is out. There is a fuse on the motherboard that can blow and cause this to happen.

You can fix it bu applying a drop of solder and bridge this fuse.
