Its bricked. that means that your psp's memory is locked up. what you can do is make a pandora battery. this puts the psp into service mode, and allows you to un-brick the psp. there are two ways to do this. 1: buy a service battery by datel which is located here http://www.gp2xstore.com/Datel_Battery_Slim_PSP_Tool_Pandoras_Battery_p/049.htm

or 2. contact me for instructions on how to make your own custom pandora battery

Hi I m italian so sorry for my english.. my problem is that my psp doesn t open and flashes green even whit charger what could be the problem? so that i can fix it


From the details you have given me, i am sorry to say that there is little you can do. If you turn it on and it flashes green, either you are using something called a "pandora's battery", or the PSP has been "bricked", which means that the software is irreversibly damaged. Sometimes this damage can be reversed, but in most cases it cannot. Try taking out your battery and playing with the charger only. if it still doesn't work, it's likely bricked.

i can fix this but it is a firmware issue. you can either buy a pandora battery and make a magic memory stick or have it serviced but it would need to be shipped out

PSP dead after flash with FW 1.5


Hi Activic,

I believe you have bricked your PSP, and I am investigating recovery from Brick. Currently I am finding possible recovery on You tube. This sounds like a Trojan virus you downloaded. Did the screen say Hello World right before it died. If so, you got the trojan virus and it bricked your PSP. If you have the receipt, send it to Sony. You can call them, but it is always busy at 1800 345 7669, and if you cant get in by phone, go to www.playstation.com to contact them.

Psp turns on green screen comes on will not show game


Hi All,

I have some things for you to try.
PSP locked up.
Try Holding the R trigger and turn the power on at the same time. This puts you in a different mode. Press the display brightness button to see the version. Power off and back on again to see if that resets it. This is only a guess I would appreciate at least a thanks for trying.
PSP Recovery
All things are fixable. Try going into recovery mode. This is done by Pressing and holding the R button when powering up the PSP. You then can press the brightness control button to see the firmware. This might help you reboot the PSP. If it is worst than this, you may consider sending it back to Sony for repair, although they usually do not want to fix a Squished PSP. I would not tell them you Sat on it. You can call SONY support at 1-800-345-7669.
If you cannot get them to Repair it, you can check out my website, www.Playstationclinic.com. I can fix it for a very reasonable price.

PSP test the UMD drive

Press the little Black probe sticking up in the UMD drive. It is about 3/4 inch from left and 3/4 inch from top of the UMD drive. When you press it, look for the Disc spindle to rotate, and the Laser to light up and the Laser movement to occur. This will tell you a lot in what is working or not in the UMD drive.

If you have no success on any of these. You can get them repaired at www.Playstationclinic.com. The PSP UMD drive is quite delicate, and should be handled with care. Good luck

Psp black screen


Hi Azeem123,

 

Your PSP is Bricked.  You need to send it to Sony to get your problem resolved. The contact information is listed below.

I know this is terrible news for you.  When you were downloading the Flash0, something disturbed the download and corrupted the PSP. This is what Bricked you PSP.  Brick refers to your psp and it is dead until Sony fixes it, no more worth than a brick.

Psp unit just stop comming on


If you know another PSP user , try using their battery on your PSP to see if it is a faulty battery. Does it work on the AC Cable? If not it then it could be power line fault and will need repair
