Question about Sony PSP-3000 Black Console
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:
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 !!
