When my psp is updating , the power turn off and psp doesn't turn on


Try this:
Remove the PSP battery and memory stick from the device. You will use these again so keep them close.
Insert the magic memory stick into the PSP card reader. The memory stick holds the firmware that will be flashed onto the PSP.
Insert the pandora battery and the PSP will turn on automatically. Press the "X" button twice to flash the firmware to the PSP. Press "X" again to shut down the PSP.
Reinsert the normal battery and memory stick and turn the PSP back on. Plug the PSP into its charger and go through the normal update process again by selecting "System Update" on the PSP menu.

Pc driver for sony psp-1000


It's not so easy to erase PSP OS and if even you do it you wil brick your PSP(Your screen will be black when you will turn on it and only green light will flash few times.) I think you have bad memory stick or something like that. Because you are browsing memory stick and not PSP when you connect PSP to computer. Check if you have memory stick inside your PSP. Try to format memory stick in PSP. You can also try to restore PSP deafult settings. If you have Card Reader try to read and format card on computer. If nothing helps buy new memory stick.

How to restore default settings


Hello :

  1. Remove the battery from the left side of the PSP while it is still on. The unit will power down instantly. Wait ten seconds and then replace the battery.
  2. Press both clear shoulder buttons at the top of the PSP and keep them held while the PSP reboots. A "Recovery" mode will be initiated.
  3. Press down on the control pad to locate a "recovery" folder. This will contain all of your PSP content, including games, music, videos and podcasts that are saved on the device. Highlight this folder and press the "X" button to begin reinstalling your content.

Warnings
  • If you would like to reset your PSP while it is working normally, you can do so by going to the Settings menu and selecting "System Reset." This will get rid of all your content and restore the PSP to factory settings (and subsequently remove all of your content.)

Or try this for hard resetting :

  1. Locate your Power button on your PSP. Push the power button up for 10 seconds.
  2. The PSP will and should shut off. Leave the PSP off for 30 seconds.
  3. Turn your PSP back on by flicking the power button up very quickly. If it doesn't turn on, try pushing the power button forward very quickly again. (sometimes you have to do it 2-3 times)
  4. Your PSP should be working now. If not, then you may have a firmware problem.
Warning:
  • Do not have your PSP plugged into a power supply.
  • If your PSP doesn't turn off after 10 seconds (of power button being help up) then remove your battery and wait 30 seconds, and then replace .

My PSP will only turn on without a disc in it then if I insert a disc and try and run it it will just turn off. Also I've tried running a small game from the memory stick but again the PSP will just turn...


Try hooking up just the ac adapter to the psp without the battery hooked up to it.

If the psp turns on then try to load a disc, if it doesn't shut down then the battery is bad, if it still shuts down then that means the main board is bad cause it can't handle the power coming from the umd drive.

How do i reset my whole psp? even if it wont turn on


Hi there, Please turn off your psp. Before it turns on please hold on "R button". After that you will see a black screen. Please choose configuration, then choose "VSH MENU" (it should be enabled). Choose exit afterwards. Automatically your psp will reset. It will reboot.

From then you can have your psp reset anytime your psp was on. Simply push "select button" and choose reset. That's it!
