Had this prob too! Pull the battery out for about 30 seconds & then try it again!
If the battery is charged & this does not help, Buy a new one & put the old one in the newly purchased package & return it for a refund!

It sounds like a problem with your rechargeable battery. when you charge it, is it showing a full charge -- should be after around 45 minutes. wosrt case is you'll need a replacement battery from Sony.

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...

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 .

How to crack psp 1001


note I did this for PSP 3000 but insted use the PHAT folder and the eggslpoit.tiff also install hellcat's recovery flasher as with PSP 1000/2000 you only need to do it onece or you can use pandora battery if it's on 5.50+
if it's 5.03 or below you are good to go. if it's below 5.03 update to 5.03 (NOT NETWORK UPDATE) http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/1645
download chickHEN: http://downloads.exophase.com/506/chickhen-homebrew-enabler-r2/
download CFW enabler 3.50 (can be higher if you don't want PS1 classics)
http://downloads.exophase.com/506/chickhen-homebrew-enabler-r2/
OPTIONAL (to be safe) download the new PSAR dumper (found on same page as CFW enabler 3.50.)
another optional update (recommended) http://pspnews.co.uk/?p=141

1) after downloading the 3-5 files update to 5.03 (skip steps 1-3 if already on 5.03)
2) extract archives, put EBOOT.PBP(X= drive letter) X/PSP/GAME/UPDATE make folder(s) if needed.
3) plug in PSP must be 75%+ and start the update. do not unplug the PSP and on the 3000 you cannot undo the update.
4) in chickHEN put H.BIN on X/ put the chickHEN photos (slim) X/PICTURE/chickHEN
5) in CFW enabler 3.50+or- put the folder containing EBOOT.PBP in X/PSP/GAME
6)(optional) open chickHEN MOD2 and replace slim.tiff onX/PICTURE/chickHEN (improve stability during the use of some hackedfeatures (making fun of s0ny it makes it load more offton)
7) turn on PSP restore defualt settings (better to hold SQURE TRINGEand START, SELECT) change theam to original green (closet green tobottom)
8) goto the chickHEN photo on the PSP scroll to bottom when the first broken egg loads. if it works good if it doesn't try agin)
8.5) OPTIONAL: if you use PSAR dumper follow the instructions and dump it it is recommended to do this before you do step 9.
9) goto CFW 3.50+ or - and press "flash and start" (recommend plugging it in)
10) it will load into CFW environment and dissaper on full restart/ crash/ freeze
you must do steps 8-10 agin but step 9 will be different and you don't need to flash agin.

troubleshooting: if it doesn't load try a different colour i noticed some PSPswork different with different colours. Example: 3 my PSP 3001s usedgreen one liked light blue. do optional step 6 it increases you'rechance of success (and mocks s0ny's anti-hack "stability during the useof some features have been improved" ********). try setting a fullbackground meaning one that fills the whole screen IE: no black otherthan the picture it's self. (this works better for me)
if you have trouble following the steps email me again. also if youbrick it's you're fault but following my tutorial you have a 99.99%chance of bricking (the most dangerous part is accusaly installing theofficial 5.03 update.)

Battery pack fell out during an update and now my psp wont start


Hi commonly what you called bricked look up pandora battery fortunatly you can fix it with one of these and software on a memory stick but you will have to look very hard and read a bit if you cant be bothered look for a repairer in your neighborhood any backyarder will do tell them the story and it shouldnt cost you more than 50 bucks

Black Screen on PSP Slim


Hi,

Take out the battery of your PSP, wait 30 seconds and then reinsert it. Then start the PSP up without the charger in it. If the problem still occurs, try holding the brightness button (rectangle icon near select button) for 10 seconds. I hope this works for you.
