Reinstall software is all you actually need to do but do it threw your comp using usb cable this can help you get out the purge of software
your info is stored on a memmory disk basically its just a wipe of your memmory disk back up all info on disk to comp then do a wipe
its not destroyed its just stuck in limbo

How do I update my psp console?


If you have internet on your psp goto the left all the way and then go all the way up and there should be a update icon in your settings icon.

If this does not work you can download the update via sony's website and put it onto you memory card via usb from the computer and then update that way.

If you found this awnser useful please give a thumbs up or even better write a Testimonial.

Psp was turned off while downloading the latest update, It won't turn on.


Here's an article which identifies your problem. Hope it helps:

"Oh, do I have bad news for you. I have heard from many people that have unplugged their PSP accidentally during an update, got bored during the slow download, or had some other glitch interrupt a network update or processing a downloaded update just to end up with a completely dead Sony PSP device.The only advice I can offer you and other people in this situation is to call Sony and talk to them about how lame it is that you can kill your expensive Playstation Portable device by a relatively random or unlucky event during a firmware update. It seems to me - though I'm definitely not a part of Sony and cannot speak with any authority here - that Sony should replace PSPs that are killed during a failed firmware update. I don't know if they do, but they should.
Which makes me think: if you have had this experience and call Sony about your dead PSP, please leave a note here to tell us who you called, what your experience was like and how it turned out. That is, did they make good on the problem or did they just say "ah, bummer, dude." and hang up?
I can't emphasize enough how important it is to:
  • plug your PSP into the wall during the entire firmware upgrade process, and
  • don't interrupt it during a download, even if it's taking a long time
lest you "brick" or otherwise kill your unit.
Also note that you can likely minimize the problem of slow or stalled downloads by actually downloading the firmware update package on your PC or Mac. In that situation nothing bad will happen if you kill the download halfway. Then all you have to do is copy the downloaded firmware package onto your Sony PSP and run it. Elapsed time once you've finished the download? Just a few minutes. Much less risk."

No software on psp deleted accident


If you have a warrantied PSP, take it in for service - there are many legitimate ways an official sony firmware upgrade can be interrupted and cause havoc to a psp.

If your PSP is a PSP-3000 or a Slim & Lite with a TA-088 v3 or higher motherboard, this is the only way to fix it, period.

If you have an earlier model, it can be fixed using a Pandora (service) battery and a 'magic' memory stick. These can be created from any psp already running custom firmware. You can also buy them online, and if you look in the local classified ads website where you live, you can probably find people offering what they will call a downgrading service.

I cannot run through the steps here to create your own, but tutorials are all over the net and sites like youtube.

Won't turn on after i tried to update for GOW2


You accidently bricked your PSP when you terminated the firmware update. When a Firmware update begins it formats the memory location prior to beginning the flash. If you interupt the flash or anything after the flash program erases the firmware memory location, the PSP will not be able to boot.
Send your PSP to Playstationclinic.com and they will restore it for a good price.

Psp Is Retarded


You most likely 'bricked' your PSP.

You can NOT under ANY circumstances disconnect the power source of the device you are upgrading the firmware in while it's installing!

Your PSP is most assuredly DEAD. You'll need to contact SONY for support if it's still under warranty. I wouldn't recommend telling them that you disconnected the battery during a firmware update. They'll most likely tell you that you'll have to buy a new one.

Instead, tell them that it suddenly quit working and shut down in the middle of a firmware update.

The choice is yours. But it's definitely dead of you did exactly what you described.

Sorry... There is nothing that anyone here can do to help you with that one.

That just sucks.

Psp not working


This problem occurs when there is some problem with the firmware, it can be happen If you turn off the system or remove the memory stick during an update. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged. if so, you''ll have psp with blank on screen. try remove all plugin MS, Umd, etc, then press bright button of psp. if isn't work you need pandora battery to downgrading your firmware. hope this help.
