It sounds like the firmware is corrupt, It probably says press O to restore, but it's in Chinese. Try that.

I dropped my psp and it broke and won't turn on. I

Something more than likely chipped off/broke from the impact of the drop. Have you tried opening the PSP? *Note - opening your PSP will void your warranty.

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.

Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

The action replay will not download on to my PSP 3000. It detects my PSP, but won't install - it says there is a server problem. How do I fix this?

Should install now ;)...but now there is a new problem. When you use cheats the screen goes black and psp turns off! Just when you think it's working, BAM!!! New problem

Hi, i recently replaced my sons cracked lcd psp screen with a brand new sony screen. when i turned it on it was fine, but then when he put it on snooze mode and then turned it back on, the screen came up...

I'm not sure exactly what your deal is, but i have a similar problem. my screen was cracked, i replaced it, and when i turn it on or off, the screen goes all white. I'm guessing this is somewhat along the lines of normal. but if you still think something is wrong, call sony, and they should tell you what the deal is.

My PSP Won't turn on.

Yeah you guys bricked it. It happened when you upgraded and turned it off or something while in the process. Now you need someone to unbrick it or ship it in to Sony, or fix your self easiest buy tool/pandora converter tool. XD

Psp black screen

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.

Power issue, blank screen.

Don't listen to dnbull. i looked at the PSP sites, and apperantly that kind of thing will only happen if it got screwed because you shut of power while it was loading, downloading, saving etc. and it will take about 2-4 hours of time for the data to restart. Put in on a charger and leave it on for a long time and it should restart. you might not have all your files though... sorry...:(
