    My psp will freeze like this as well, sometimes as soon as I turn it on or try to use the d-pad. Sometimes I can't even turn it on at all

As boogschd said, the PSP's firmware is corrupted.

It is virtually impossible to permanently brick as PSP now, especially with Pandora's Battery.

Here are a few useful links about pandora's battery:

The best thing about a pandora's battery is that it is FREE.

Freezes

Would seem to me that your hard drive is on its way out as the PSP has a hard time reading from it, therefore it freezes. You need to backup your information and replace this drive as soon as possible before it goes completely dead.

PSP turns on, screen freezes, shuts down.

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

1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.
