Hello,

It seems that your PSP is bricked. A firmware issue. Have you tried replacing the memory card and test if it solves the issue?

Psp battery and screen


It's bricked. What that means is that the system software has been corrupted. The most common reason for this is if someone turns the PSP off in the middle of a system update. It can be fixed, but it requires special equipment which costs about $40 if you can find it online. The following website can rebuild the system software for you for $30. They also do other PSP repairs -- you can send them both and they will check them out for you! No charge for an estimate!

Green light goes out after 10 sec no screen


1. Check battery - try recharging it overnight
2. Check integrity of AC charger if it still working properly. Or you can try charging the psp overnight using USB charger.

Screen stays black green light comes on for a few seconds.


This sounds like you have "bricked" your psp... there are a few things that can cause this: first would be that you have bricked it trying to install Custom Firmware, another would be that the battery died or it was shut off during an update. You can buy what is called a Pandora Battery and a "magic" memory stick which will reset your PSPs firmware to the original 1.5, or if you still have warranty you can send it in to Sony to get fixed. Pandora batteries and Magic Memory Sticks are sold in a package for about $10-15 on the internet. Good Luck, hope you fix it.

My psp has stoped working. when i turn it on the green light will stay on for 20 sec but the screen will not light up. the unit did not fall or get damaged


So, the power goes on, but nothing but a black screen... try pressing the brightness button. If that doesn't work... you've probably got a bricked PSP. Did you try updating before this started?

yeah it sounds bricked, did you go and try to mod it in anyway? if not then send it back to sony, they'll send you a new one. Try shaking it reall hard. Does anything sound loose in there?

Time to use that store warranty or manufacturer warranty.
take out the battery, plug in the charger and then try turning it on......if it works then you battery is probably dead forever and you need a new one, if it doesn't then you may have a bigger problem because you may of knock something loose and the PSP itself isn't receiving power. if thats the case then the only thing you can do is try and get it fixed or just buy a new one
