    well, if you have the TA-082, there is no remedy.
    If you dont, you might have either a corrupted magic Mstick or have a wrongly configured battery.

    good luck with your psp.

    load the recovery menu by putting the magic mem and pand battery. dont use the recovery menu from the custom firmware.

    try the option that erases and restores the nand again.
    Im talking about this download. I've used it without any problems.
    Please read the readme file.

For psp what does bricked mean


"Brick" means corrupting your Firmware, the system that makes your PSP run. Bricking can be caused by either "interrupted update of firmware" or attempt to install "PSP Hacks" also known as Jailbreaks or Custom Firmware (CFW).
Some PSP Models can be revived when bricked by using a system called "Recovery Menu" which becomes available when the PSP was running a CFW before it bricked. Another way of unbricking a PSP including those that runs Original Firmware is using Pandora Battery and a Magic Memory Stick.
However, there are PSP MOdels that cannot be unbricked. These are the PSP 2000 Slim that have the Motherboard TA088v3 and other higher end. The worst PSP Motherboard is the TA088v3 because once bricked, PSP becomes a lovely paperweight without game functions and possibility to be revived.

For psp what does bricked mean and how do you unbrick it


BRICKed PSP is a state where its firmware (or system) no longer functions due to corruption either because of hack attempt or interrupted update of firmware. Depending on your PSP model and Motherboard, unbricking can be possible and (worst) impossible.
If you can give me the following, I may be able to help you.
1.) PSP Make (Slim or Phat) 2.) PSP Motherboard/Mainboard 3.) Last CFW installed before it bricked

You may also try doing this to unbrick you PSP.
1. Remove your battery from the PSP. 2. Put back your battery and charge it (to make sure it won't shut down while doing this) 3. Press "R" and hold it and switch on your PSP, if this fail, repeat 1 & 2 and try number 4 4. Press "R" and "L" and hold it and switch on your PSP.
If your PSP boots on Recovery Menu, you can unbrick it and play with it again.

When I turn it up, only the green light comes and stays for about 10 seconds, no display or sound. what can i do?


I guess your PSP is bricked. Have you done either of the following;
1.) Update PSP Firmware and interrupted it before it finished 2.) Installed a Custom Firmware (CFW) to play homebrew (games in Memory Stick)
If yes, it's certain that your PSP is bricked. There are easy ways to unbrick your PSP depending on your PSP version and MotherBoard. If you need help in unbricking your PSP, please give the following detail;
1.) Slim or Phat 2.) PSP Version (1000, 2000, 3000) 3.) MotherBoard (if available)
If you have known your MoBo to be a TA088v3, consider bringing it back to S0ny for MoBo replacement or have it replaced if you can buy one. Consider a new MoBo that is not a TA088v3 like TA085 or TA088v2 because these boards have recovery menu when installed with CFW.

Ok so my psp is not turning on the battery is fully charged the green light turns on for acouple of seconds then turns off any tips


Hmmmm... I guess we have a bricked PSP here...
First, I should be right with this - either you tried to install a Custom Firmware (ChickHen) or you were updating and something went wrong.
In order to UNBRICK your PSP, we need to know the following;
1. Your PSP make (Slim or Phat) 2. Your PSP Motherboard (if available)
However, try doing this as this might work if you have a Motherboard that can be recovered from bricking;
1. Press and hold "R" while switching on your PSP. 2. If your PSP boots on into a "Recovery Mode", you're a lucky guy 3. Scroll down to "Run Program at /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP" and do the rest to recover your PSP's firmware.
Get back if you still have a dead PSP.

PSP - blank screen, yet green light is on.


What is your firmware version? Are you using CFW or OFW?
There is a problem in your update that could have trigger some of your flash0 files it is where your firmware files are placed. Or maybe your firmware does not support Crisis Core : Final Fantasy 7?
If you are on CFW (Custom Firmware). Try loading the recovery menu in boot set-up. Just turn off your psp (not in sleep mode). Leave it for a second or two, then turn on your psp while holding the R trigger. If you are able to load the recovery menu, then you are semi-bricked. If not, only black screen then you are fully-bricked. You will not a PANDORA kit, with a pandora battery and magic memory stick to unbrick your psp.

My psp green light comes on but no noise or any other response and no picture from the system


If your PSP green light comes on for a few seconds, then turns back off -- no audio, no video, the PSP is "bricked" (the system software is corrupted). This usually happens if the PSP is turned off in the middle of an update or if someone tries to downgrade it (or install custom firmware but fails). The following website will unbrick your PSP (rebuild the system software) for $29:

Psp fat


Im usually pretty good with psp's.. But this is a new case. Seems your psp ISNT bricked.. which is good, but somethings happened to upset your normal screen.
Is your psp custom firmware? Try holding R when turning it on, if its custom firmware, it would boot into recovery mode.
If not, then best solution would be to have someone restore it using the unbricking method.
