PSP Update problem

To whom it may concer,

I was in the middle of a PSP update, when my system had frozen. I for some reason, figured that after an hour of it being stuck thought it would be fine to shut it off and shut it back on. Now the power light comes on, but THE SCREEN WILL NOT SHOW UP AT ALL. There is no picture. I have been without my PSP now for about 2 months. Please tell me that you can help me!

Is the green light on? if the light is on, your psp is bricked. Create a pandora battery and a memory card to unbricked your device. Search google for creating a pandora and the memory card.

How to Update PSP to Firmware Ver 6.20

It's easy to update/upgrade the Playstation Portable (PSP) 3000 system software to firmware version 6.20. There are two ways to do a PSP 6.20update - regular file download and network update. We did an update on our pink PSP 3000 using the network update procedure since our place has wifi.
Why did we choose network update in updating our PSP firmware to ver 6.20? It's much simpler. Here is a quick tutorial on how to carry out PSP 6.20 update using Network Update (Method 1):
  1. Go to Network Settings to configure your PSP WLAN by setting up an access point.
  2. Under Network Settings, it would be best to choose Automatic to simplify the process. Your PSP console will search for any wireless network available nearby.
  3. To Update System Software to the latest 6.20 firmware version, Go to Network Update. Be sure your battery is full because the update will fail if you turn off you PSP console or if the unit shuts down due to lack of battery power.
Method 2: Download File To Update PSP 6.20 Firmware Using a PC. If you prefer to update your console using the download method, here are the simple steps in doing this:

Hello,, im one of the user of psp go and unfortunately i have a problem using my new psp go.i tried to update it but the result is failed and said contact technical support for assistance..i try to turn it...

You have to contact Sony technical support for assistance like your PSP says.

If the update hung in the middle, the software on your PSP GO is probably no good anymore. Sony will have to repair it. While there are ways to rebuild the system software on the PSP-1000 and PSP-2000 systems, there is no way to do it on the PSP GO (or the PSP-3000).

How do you update the psp - United States

Hi please find above three websites that show you exactly how to update your system. It is pretty easy to do. Simply follow the instruction to the letter and you should have NO trouble.
However IF you expect an Update to FIX your unit, it will NOT do so,any problems that existed before, will in all likelihood still remain after updating.. Also unless you really need to do so for a good reason, it is advisable to NOT do so, as if done incorrectly, or something goes wrong, you will end up "Bricking" your PSP. So take care and think about weather or not you need to?

    Psp battery and screen

    It's bricked. What that means is that the system software has been corrupted. The most common reason for this is if someone turns the PSP off in the middle of a system update. It can be fixed, but it requires special equipment which costs about $40 if you can find it online. The following website can rebuild the system software for you for $30. They also do other PSP repairs -- you can send them both and they will check them out for you! No charge for an estimate!
