My PSP was about to be hacked but while reseting it only glows green light and unable to turn on

sounds like you go yourself a brick. what model is your PSP? if its a 1000 series or 2000 then you can use a pandora battery to unbrick it. It will not work with the new PSP 3000. At least not yet. There is also a TA88v3 motherboard that is on the new Slim PSP's. These motherboards are rare, but will not allow custom firmware. They usually start with serial number AB02.

My psp full brick during upgrade and pandora battary did not work

If you have used pandora battery and MMS correctly, I think you got the TA088v3 PSP Motherboard. It's unhackable and is Pandora proof. To date, no procedure is known to unbrick these kinds of PSP MoBo. Others have tried replacing their MoBo and other send it back to S0ny and pay bucks for its replacement.
If you believe you got the non TA088v3, you might be missing few of the procedures in Pandora unbricking. You may also check your MMS and re-create it.

PSP Will not start


What hapenned to all your PSP's is that they 'bricked'. When your PSP is installing an update and you interrupt the process, the data where the PSP's operating system (=firmware) is stored got corrupted (=broken). In very rare cases this can happen when you play a game and something goes wrong due that game. When your PSP is bricked the green lamp is on but the screen stays black.

Now straight to the point..The solutions:

1.If your PSP 'bricked' because you interrupted a system update (Powered off while updating, canceling update..), then you can only help it by re-installing the firmware correctly. NOTE: This is unsupported by Sony and is something you do on your own risk, for a usual PSP user it is a complicated process and i suggest you should let someone with experience do it. If you still want to attempt it, for example here's a tutorial for making a 'pandora battery' :
To find more information about this subject you could seach on google for tags like 'psp pandora mod custom firmware jigkick'

2. If your PSP suddenly doesn't start up after or while you played a game, then you have a chance that you can recover your PSP without too much hassle. Simply let your battery run empty. After it's empty, remove the battery and let your PSP 'rest' a day without battery. After that, reinsert the battery, first fully charge it, and THEN start your PSP up (after your battery is fully recharged). If you have luck you might have your PSP working again.

3. Contact Sony and explain the situation. Explain that you did nothing wrong. If your PSP is still under warranty they should help you..

Good luck and if i helped you please leave feedback! Thanks
