    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.

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.

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 blank


you got a brick psp.

If your updating a psp, you should make sure that it will be able to finish it, if you stop while its still updating, you will have a brick unit.

if you psp is not using custom firmware (modified to play hack games) send it to sony as they can unbrick it.

if any of your friend has a pandora, they can actually have you fix it both CFW and original psp.

Hope that helps.

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.
