I always play psp and sometimes the game is just hang like that. after that my psp just shutdown automatic.

That's normal. Sometimes the games are buggy and hang the PSP. When the PSP OS detects that situation, it shuts down or restart the PSP.

You can try updating the firmware but the problem is with the games.

PSP turns on, screen freezes, shuts down.

Your battery may have worn out over use, so it may not hold a charge anymore.

The screen is black,

Sometimes the PSP's will freeze for one reason or another. In most cases the psp will turn off within a minute and then restart itself. If not disconnect any power supply and remove the battery for a moment to manually reset it. Hopefully you saved recently.

Ok...this sounds crazy but it happened to one of my PSPs. I updated the firmware on my system and the menu started stalling and taking a long time to respond. I shut the PSP all the way down....holding the power button until the light shuts off (about 4 or 5 seconds)...Hold the R button and power the system on again (you should be in recovery mode)...go to CPU speed and make sure it is either set at "Default" or "222"....I belive 222 is the default setting....also make sure the UMD is also set at "Default" or 222....if you're going to use the UMD.
