If you can hear sound then the problem is most likely your LCD screen. look at the screen under a bright light. if you can make out a faint picture then your backlight is out. Usually this means your screen needs to be replaced. replacement screens can be found on ebay for about $25
If you cannot hear sound or see anything on the screen then you have a more general motherboard failure of some kind and should bring it to a service technician.
Pull out the battery again and before you put it back on press and hold the select button. While holding the select button, go ahead and turn it on. Still hold the select button say 45 seconds after switching on.
You have a semi brick psp, if your psp is scph-100x fat or scph-200x slim (not ta088v3), you can fix its under recovery menu. hold right button while turn on psp then, goto advance and select format flash1 and reset setting.. or by unbrick your psp using pandora battery.
otherwise, you might to send it back to sony if your psp ta088v3 or psp scph-300x
Take out the battery of your PSP, wait 30 seconds and then reinsert it. Then start the PSP up without the charger in it. If the problem still occurs, try holding the brightness button (rectangle icon near select button) for 10 seconds. I hope this works for you.
Turn off your PSP, Press and hold the R button, and power on at the same time. This may reset the PSP. If not, do you get any sound? Look at the Display real close and see if you are getting any graphics. If your getting sound, and you can see some graphics, you have a backlight problem. If you get no sound and cannot see graphic, then their is a high chance of your PSP being bricked. This means that you done something to interupt an upload or program in progress. The eeprom program is corrupted and the PSP will not boot up. The term Bricked, refers to your PSP being no better than a black Brick paper weight. I have heard of a repair for this called Pandoras Battery. I am not sure if the Pandoras battery really works to restore Bricked PSP's. It may be worth a try for you to take a chance on Pandoras Battery.
All things are fixable. Try going into recovery mode. This is done by Pressing and holding the R button when powering up the PSP. You then can press the brightness control button to see the firmware. This might help you reboot the PSP. If it is worst than this, you may consoder sending it back to Sony for repair, although they usually do not want to fix a Squooshed PSP. I would not tell them you Sat on it. You can call SONY support at 1-800-345-7669.
If you cannot get them to Repair it, you can check out my website, www.Playstationclinic.com . I can fix it for a very reasonable price.
"tap" not hit.. the back of the psp, (where the game goes in on the back) and see if that works.. that will usually get the laser to read the disk.. perhaps the umd is dirty.. only tap on it "lightly" when you hear it loading.. i know that sounds stupid, but it worked for me countless of times.
