This is most commonly down to corrupted firmware. This problem is usually referred to as a "Bricked" PSP as it leaves the unit useless.
If you PSP is still under warranty contact your local SONY dealer and they will arrange repair. If not DONT PANIC!

There are a number of people on the web now offering a PSP unbricking service.

Or for the more technically minded of you there is plenty of information available on the web about doing this yourself wit the use of a "Pandorra" battery.

Just Google PSP pandorra battery.

While im plaing my psp, the screen freezed and i restarted it, when i turned on my psp (theres a green light) nothing happens the screen is empty then a few minutes the green light gone what happened


I guess you have custom firmware. If so, you can use a pandora battery to solve the problem. If you do not know how to make a pandora battery or if this doesn't work send me an email or add me on eclipse_09_28@hotmail.com. But pandora is most likely to be the solution. I had the same kinna problem but I was updating it thats the only difference. The green light is on and the screen was blank and then the light turned off. So I used a Pandora Battery and it fixed. :P

Psp broke


i dont believe this is a bricked issue. it cold be a short on the board or wiring some where inside. this noticable if it works after you lightly tap it like mine. but once it comes on it usally will stay on tapping a briked psp does nothing.

IF the "professional hands asks you to pay to unbrick your PSP,don't pay as they are using the pandora method and its supposed to be free.

Power light on but still not working


Check ur firmware, (if ur PSP installed custom firmware e.g. OE, M33.) goto "recovery mode", press and hold R(right button) while turn on ur psp. if u can go, simple use pandora battery for downgrade/upgarde ur psp. see at, http://e-arena.blogspot.com

Hi Gohan102,

 

Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....
