"Brick" means corrupting your Firmware, the system that makes your PSP run. Bricking can be caused by either "interrupted update of firmware" or attempt to install "PSP Hacks" also known as Jailbreaks or Custom Firmware (CFW).
Some PSP Models can be revived when bricked by using a system called "Recovery Menu" which becomes available when the PSP was running a CFW before it bricked. Another way of unbricking a PSP including those that runs Original Firmware is using Pandora Battery and a Magic Memory Stick.
However, there are PSP MOdels that cannot be unbricked. These are the PSP 2000 Slim that have the Motherboard TA088v3 and other higher end. The worst PSP Motherboard is the TA088v3 because once bricked, PSP becomes a lovely paperweight without game functions and possibility to be revived.
If the firmware update gets interrupted, it corrupts the PSP's operating system, and will not boot. This is called "bricking" your PSP, and seems to be the case here.
You will have to send in your PSP to Sony to be fixed. There are options posted online like hacker's tools to fix bricked PSPs, but this will void any existing warranty, and will usually leave a footprint that Sony support can detect, and will refuse service if they discover that you have tampered with your PSP.
The safest choice is to have it sent in to support for them to re-install everything.
gamestop MIGHT give you a new psp in exchange for a broken one or something... call them & ask. they gave me a new one. you can also try to repair it by yourself...you might need to get a pandora battery. go to http://www.consoleshop.com/ for parts...(not really sure if they'll have anything to fix it...) they have a pandora battery for psp slim/lite you can buy... http://www.consoleshop.com/product.php?productid=20631
Turn off your PSP, Press and hold the R button, and power on at the same time. This may reset the PSP. If not, do you get any sound? Look at the Display real close and see if you are getting any graphics. If your getting sound, and you can see some graphics, you have a backlight problem. If you get no sound and cannot see graphic, then their is a high chance of your PSP being bricked. This means that you done something to interupt an upload or program in progress. The eeprom program is corrupted and the PSP will not boot up. The term Bricked, refers to your PSP being no better than a black Brick paper weight. I have heard of a repair for this called Pandoras Battery. I am not sure if the Pandoras battery really works to restore Bricked PSP's. It may be worth a try for you to take a chance on Pandoras Battery.
Start with the PSP turned off. Press and hold the R button when your turning on the power. Turn it off again, then back on. Sometimes this works. If not, your PSP is probably Bricked.
