I was updating my psp 5.03 chickhen but it won't work so i cancel it, now my psp won't turn on only green light on the side

You just 'bricked' you PSP.

What model is your PSP? Is it the 1000, 2000, or 3000?

Never, ever, turn off your PSP when attempting to do an upgrade.

Best thing you can do is get ahold of what's called a Pandora Battery and then attempt to 'downgrade' your PSP before you attempt to upgrade. The battery of the PSP has special circuitry designed to boot the PSP and loading from the internal ROM or from the disk drive. A Pandora Battery is the same battery, but has been physically modified so that it can boot from memory stick. You will have to download a special utility that will 'write' specific boot programs to a Sony Memory Stick. This has to be done on a computer. Once that is done, you put the Memory Stick into the PSP, install the Pandora Battery, and then turn on the unit. (You cannot have the external powersupply plugged in, the battery needs to be fully charged.) The PSP will boot off the Memory Stick. You will then have the choice to 'downgrade' to a previous ROM Version. This will take some time, so wait for it to fully load. Once it is complete, remove the Memory Stick and put in a normal battery, or reconfigure the Pandora Battery back to its original configuration, and the PSP should boot normally.

If you are not comfortable in doing this, you will have to do a search on Google for places that can do this procedure. Some places charge up to $80-$100 to do this.

Hope this helps.

My psp will not upgrade to the latest version its stuck on version 3.1

When a psp friezes or gets stock all you have to do is reset the psp... you will find a  little hole behind the psp usually a pin size, pass in something to reset it or remove the batteries and restart it but sometimes because of the setting you have made it may not do the upgrade so go to SONY website, it is easy just type on google SONY PSP.

I have a problem on my psp,, i upgraded my psp using chicken but my psp is not able to upgrade using chicken,,now my psp is broken,,do you have a solution on that case??

If you bricked your PSP the only solution I know is that a pandora battery should unbrick it. I have heard of Chickenhen but I have not used it. The pandora battery claims that it can unbrick any broken psp. The batteries are not that expensive usually under 25 bucks, which might not be a bad fix for a 169 dollar piece of hardware. The instructions on how to use it come with the battery and they do have tutorials on their website. hope this helps

No. The PSP should work without a battery as long as its plugged into the mains. Does the red or green light illuminate when switched on? Maybe he sold you a 'brick'.
