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."

I called Sony India today and they mentioned that it has to be replaced with a new one at 50% of my cost. Why should I pay for Sony's design errors ? It just got hung during software upgrade !!

How do i download games from my pc to my psp?


downloading a game from a pc to a psp won't play on the psp in any case, unless you install custum firmware on the psp by buying a custom firmware kit of www.amazon.com. If you don't want to do this any easy way of downloading games for the psp is buy using the psp store on the psp, which you should be able to get if you have the latest update. You can download the games from the psp store but they are not free. some of them actually cost more than just buying a UMD disc from a game shop.

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.

How to Update PSP to Firmware Ver 6.20

It's easy to update/upgrade the Playstation Portable (PSP) 3000 system software to firmware version 6.20. There are two ways to do a PSP 6.20update - regular file download and network update. We did an update on our pink PSP 3000 using the network update procedure since our place has wifi.
Why did we choose network update in updating our PSP firmware to ver 6.20? It's much simpler. Here is a quick tutorial on how to carry out PSP 6.20 update using Network Update (Method 1):
  1. Go to Network Settings to configure your PSP WLAN by setting up an access point.
  2. Under Network Settings, it would be best to choose Automatic to simplify the process. Your PSP console will search for any wireless network available nearby.
  3. To Update System Software to the latest 6.20 firmware version, Go to Network Update. Be sure your battery is full because the update will fail if you turn off you PSP console or if the unit shuts down due to lack of battery power.
Method 2: Download File To Update PSP 6.20 Firmware Using a PC. If you prefer to update your console using the download method, here are the simple steps in doing this:

How do I update my psp


The easiest way is to connect it to a wifi network and use the "network update" option. This will download and install it for you.

Outside of that you can download the latest firmware, copy it to the memory stick and execute on the PSP.

The latest firmware also comes on game UMDs (assuming you have a UMD PSP) so you can update to latest that way if you're willing to buy a new PSP game.

Sony's site has a really great walk through to help you out.

PSP comes on and plays fine then the screen goes black?


I am having the same problem.  The screen will intermittently come on as blurry.  Like all the text and graphics are doubled, but off by a few pixels.  Doing a sleep and turning it back on usually fixes it.  But I can not operate my PSP for more than like 10 seconds to a minute (varying) until the screen freezes and fades to black from right to left.  This usually occurs by pressing any of the buttons on the front panel.  If I am reading the news in the browser for instance and it is just sitting there, it is fine, then the second I hit a button, fades to black.  After it fades to black, sound and buttons continue to work.  I figured it was a bad LCD, so I purchased a brand new OEM LCD screen and installed it, however, the problem still persists with the new LCD screen, so it is not the screen itself.
