Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

Psp won't power on

My son's PSP was downloading an update, and he took the disk out in the middle of it, and then it shut down immediately and now it won't power back on. I have heard the term it is "bricked". And I have also read something about pandora's battery. What should be my first plan of attack without spending an arm and a leg.

My son took it upon himself to upgrade his game system from a website on the internet. now when he trys to turn his console on, the power light comes on but no screen and after 45 seconds shuts itself...


First I should ask what site he "updated" his PSP from? There are so many hack sites that claim free this or that and really can mess things up. What update did he perform? From where? Writing some things can cause a PSP to Brick. Which is in a sense a hard drive crash. Also how one downloads can as well. There are some fuse inside on the main board as well that can go bad. My gut tells me the download went bad and it bricked but I will wait to hear back on my questions.
  • Try this -
  • Remove the battery completely and let the unit power down. Now plug in the AC adapter and turn the unit on leaving the battery out. Do things function normally?
  • Try a hard boot by holding the power button down for 10 full seconds.

  • Regards,

How to Update PSP to Firmware Ver 6.20

It's easy to update/upgrade the Playstation Portable (PSP) 3000 system software to firmware version 6.20. There are two ways to do a PSP 6.20update - regular file download and network update. We did an update on our pink PSP 3000 using the network update procedure since our place has wifi.
Why did we choose network update in updating our PSP firmware to ver 6.20? It's much simpler. Here is a quick tutorial on how to carry out PSP 6.20 update using Network Update (Method 1):
  1. Go to Network Settings to configure your PSP WLAN by setting up an access point.
  2. Under Network Settings, it would be best to choose Automatic to simplify the process. Your PSP console will search for any wireless network available nearby.
  3. To Update System Software to the latest 6.20 firmware version, Go to Network Update. Be sure your battery is full because the update will fail if you turn off you PSP console or if the unit shuts down due to lack of battery power.
Method 2: Download File To Update PSP 6.20 Firmware Using a PC. If you prefer to update your console using the download method, here are the simple steps in doing this:

How to upgrade psp version 5.03 to 6.20?


its better not to do this. if your psp isn't hacked and u use umd disks, you should only connect to internet with your psp and go to : System>Network Update. when you downed it, run it and enjoy. but if you have a cfw (hacked psp) you should first download psp CFW 6.20 updater and then vist psp-hacks.com for downloading cfw 6.20 pro.

I can fix it, When the system is shut down in the middle of an update the firmware or operating software is being replaced. If it is interupted it's kind of like your computer if it didn't have MS windows. What has to be done is that the firmware has to be replaced on it. You can do this by "hacking it which installs new firmware.
