You're psp needs to be check...for you to find out the problem, if its the LCD you need to replace a new one, but if your LCD is replaced and problem occurs, step 2 is checking the software if you try reformatting it and nothing happens that's the time hardware needs to e checked properly.

    Try the following (Not sure if your running an original firmware or custom).

    Remove the memory card (I am assuming that you have one inserted).
    Try to power it up.

    I am not sure what files a psp tries to access on a memory card at boot, but that could be an easy fix. If it loads you may have to back up all files that are on the card a format it using the psp's format memory card option.
    Still not working?.. Try a different battery.

    The batteries have a board that regulates the power

I can't turn on my psp and the only thing that will come on is the green led

If the green led stays on then that means there is a problem with the screen, but if it comes on and turns off there is something wrong with your power display unit, usually a fried resistor or transistor.

My psp just shotdown and did not turned on after i install a software in my psp. there are no displays in the monitor, the power led is green. but still no display....

the problem is the software. probably has a virus in it or maybe you're psp didn't have enough space for it. get a pandora battery and your psp will turn on. First thing you have to do within3mins is delete the software. it'll go back to normal.

It wont work

that means its bricked. it means while you were updating the system software you cancelled it or turned you psp off.
The only thing you can do is to either send it back to sony. or you can buy unbricking hardware from ebay.
This is just a battery and memory card that have has software added to them.
