Is your psp custom firmware'd? if it isn't then you can't go into a recovery menu.

Psp power indicater lights up green but does no turn on.


Hi.
It's probably bricked (dead). We need to know what's your last activity before it bricked. Mostly, bricked PSP is due to interruption during firmware update. Or when you install a CFW (Customized Firmware) by using ChickHen.
If your PSP is the slim type, you need to know what type of Motherboard it has. You will be lucky if you don't have a PSP with TA088v3 MoBo. Since you can no longer turn on your PSP, you will have no chance knowing the MoBo. But this procedure below is worth the try;
1.) Turn off your PSP by pressing the power button at least 10 seconds and green light is gone. 2.) While turned off, do one of the following until you boot into Recovery Mode;
a.) press the "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button. b.) press both "L" and "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button.
3.) If you are successful booting your PSP into recovery mode, google on how to recover your flash0 file...

please go to this link and follow the instructions to perform a hard reset on your PSP.
  • Step 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.
  • Step 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.

    My ps3 froze and now doesnt show anything on the screen and controller doesnt turn it on. nothing happens


    try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

    to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

    like on my 80g system it goes like this

    ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

    Psp


    (to turn off properly the PSP, hold the "ON/OFF" button for mostly 10secs or more) Usually, when you turn on your PSP while holding the R Trigger, it should go directly to your Recovery Menu (black screen with configuration menus, etc...). If it doesn't do that while holding R, maybe there' s something wrong with your PSP... but if it does, to turn your WMA on, got to recovery Menu>Registry Hacks, then your will see there the options...for activate WMA, Activate Flash player, just press X on those and it should be fine...

    No recovery mode







    Thats because  your psp's current firmware doesnt allow to go to recovery same thing happens to me I upgraded my psp from 3.60 to 3.95 and now I cant cant go to recovery mode or downgrade it with a pandora battery cause 3.95 blocks pandora batterys. So the best thing to do is to upgrade it to 4.00 when it comes out in May or December 2008.

    PSP SCREEN FLICKERS AND GOES SLOW IN MAIN MENU


    Ok...this sounds crazy but it happened to one of my PSPs. I updated the firmware on my system and the menu started stalling and taking a long time to respond. I shut the PSP all the way down....holding the power button until the light shuts off (about 4 or 5 seconds)...Hold the R button and power the system on again (you should be in recovery mode)...go to CPU speed and make sure it is either set at "Default" or "222"....I belive 222 is the default setting....also make sure the UMD is also set at "Default" or 222....if you're going to use the UMD.
