I'm pretty sure if you brick a PSP 3001, it stays bricked. I've heard that maybe, just maybe, hooking it up to the charger with the battery removed might magically fix it, but I'm doubtful.

If it's under warranty you should be able to send it back to Sony for no charge. They'll either fix it or send you a replacement.

If it's not under warranty, you can try to to buy and install a replacement motherboard (this apparently fixes it). Although it might be cheaper to just buy a used PSP, or an opportunity to buy a DS.

You can only play UMD games on PSP 300X.
You can't load downloaded iso/cso games on it.
Unless you hack it and use custom firmware.

You should have not installed ChickHen in your PSP 3001 since there are no known ways so far, not even by Dark Alex, to fix it from "Brick"-ing. YOur attempts to remove the battery and so on to fix it is futile because even Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick won't work on those versions of PSP.
Try sending it to S0ny...
If you intend to buy a new PSP, either buy those Slim that is version 2000 and those that are NON (remember NON) TA088v3 MoBo. From this MoBo onward to PSP 3000s, all is unhackable and cannot be fixed from Brick.
