Hi,I hope you can help! I was messing around with my son's PSP and some how got into some sort of download. It came up on the screen that the PSP should not be switched off during what ever download it was trying to do. After 10-20 minutes it was apparent that nothing was happening and no matter what button was pressed nothing happened. I removed and refitted the battery and since this the PSP won't switch on even when it's plugged into the mains. What have I done? Hope you can help!

its because the psp version where change that's why the psp stops working on games only psp version's with m33 can play download games and other might depend on your umd games...so i suggest that you downgrade your psp to the original version of the psp that you have so your son can play the games that he want. hope it helped.. send me a message for more concerns...ty
your psp is prob v 1.5 and has been tricked by a program to beleive it is a higher version so an play other games, it can be reversed, there is lots to learn on it if you google psp v 7.5, hope that helps
I don't want to be the person to give bad news, but after reasearching your question for you it sounds like you son broke the psp. The color screen behind the lsd screen is damaged and usually cannot be repaired by an unqualified person. If you were to bring the system to be repaired between labor and costs, it may be cheaper to buy a new PSP.
Hopefully, depending on how long you have had the PSP you may be under a warranty.
What I suggest is to call Sony. See if you are under warranty, and have it replaced for no cost to you. Otherwise you will have to purchase a new PSP.
The number for Sony is found on the back of almost all of the psp video game manuals.
I hope I was able to fixya problem, and I wish you and your son Happy Gaming!
you failed to state if your son was doing the update via UMD disc. im inferring so, so if the battery died while it was updating, your sons PSP is bricked. you need a Pandora battery + magic memory stick. you can find them on ebay, amazon, anywhere. also if you ask around where you live some people may do it locally.
If it's a game you download, it's most likely a Windows or Macintosh executable. As the PSP's operating system is neither Windows or Mac compatible, these won't run on it.
Some sites have Java based games, designed to be multi-platform. These won't run on PSP either, without doing some third party software upgrades that you don't want to mess with unless you really know what you're doing.
However, there are some Flash-based games out there that will run on the PSP natively. Do a google search for "flash games on PSP" and you should find a few sites for them.
