    Is the Memory stick activity idicator (orange at the left side) blinks? 
    Are you using CFW or Sony Firm Ware?


    If you are in CFW try accessing the Recovery Menu

Psp power indicater lights up green but does no turn on.


Hi.
It's probably bricked (dead). We need to know what's your last activity before it bricked. Mostly, bricked PSP is due to interruption during firmware update. Or when you install a CFW (Customized Firmware) by using ChickHen.
If your PSP is the slim type, you need to know what type of Motherboard it has. You will be lucky if you don't have a PSP with TA088v3 MoBo. Since you can no longer turn on your PSP, you will have no chance knowing the MoBo. But this procedure below is worth the try;
1.) Turn off your PSP by pressing the power button at least 10 seconds and green light is gone. 2.) While turned off, do one of the following until you boot into Recovery Mode;
a.) press the "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button. b.) press both "L" and "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button.
3.) If you are successful booting your PSP into recovery mode, google on how to recover your flash0 file...

Hi my psp has a green light but nothing showing on the screen


If your green light stays on for about 10 seconds, then shuts itself off, it sounds like your PSP is bricked. What this means is that the system software is corrupted, therefore the PSP is as good as a brick but fear not! This usually occurs if your PSP shuts off in the middle of a system update.

The following website can un-brick the system (reload the system software) onto the PSP for $29!

Its called a BRICK you need to send it to sony to fix it or buy a pandoras battery, google "psp Brick" too see what it is and what your options are.

Please dont rate as :thanks for trying: cause its the truth i know cause i have a pandoras battery and ive bricked mine many times and its the only way to fix it besides sending it in to be repaired.

My psp is broke


if when you try to turn it on it shows the green light for about 10-30 sec. then shuts off by itself it means you have a bricked PSP which you can fix by using a Pandora battery which you can make by reading some tutorials or you can buy them off ebay.

Hi Azeem123,

 

Your PSP is Bricked.  You need to send it to Sony to get your problem resolved. The contact information is listed below.

I know this is terrible news for you.  When you were downloading the Flash0, something disturbed the download and corrupted the PSP. This is what Bricked you PSP.  Brick refers to your psp and it is dead until Sony fixes it, no more worth than a brick.
