Question about Computers & Internet
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.
