Take the game back to the store.Then tell them that the screen is not working.But you still hear the going.Then take the psp out and show them what you are taking about.

Black screen malfunction!!??Help!!!!

it sounds like you have bricked your psp there are ways around this but its to do with changing settings and adding a recovery program to your psp (in other words hacking) but i aint the expert on this but if you search it up on youtube you can find some great videos that people have uploaded with the same problem as you and they show you how to get around your problem, im stuck with a problem with a region code not been correct and i dont know if i need to use the recovery program to help me through it.

My psp

well if when you turn it on the power light turns green but the screen stays blank it means its bricked. this has nothing to do with the battery..
it means when you were updating the system software... the version... you turned off the psp or somehow stopped it.
you can fix this by sending it back to sony.
Or you can buy unbrocking hardware from places like ebay. all this is is a battery and memory stick that have had some software added to them and have been slightly changed. the is i think the best option because if thisu do it again u can just fix it

Brocken psp

Try getting the backlight fixed. My psp kept doing that n my friend fixed it. He took it apart, tinkered w/ some screws, put in something new, and it was fixed.
