Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

PSP powers up, black screen, no sound

My son was playing a new game for Xmas, then the screen went blank. It will power up for about 10-20 seconds then shut down...there is nothing on the screen and no sound. System wasn't dropped, wet or modified in any way. He just puts the games in and plays...any help? I have been reading about the systems's being 'bricked", is this a possiblity?

It could be, although if it hasn't been modified in anyway it could be the battery. If your son has used this battery so many times, say a couple months or years, the motherboard or chip could malfunction, causing shortage of power. Try getting a replaceable battery, or if you know another friend or guy that has a son/daughter with an extra battery try using it to save money. If it's not the battery, could be the firmware, or version. Hope these solutions help, let me know if they do or don't.
Good Luck!

PSP black screen


IF PSP is being disturbed or power went off by any means while upgrading system software. It is sure that your PSP is bricked and now you had the only option to get repaired by a technician and it is done with the help of Pandora's Jigkick Battery. If you required any more info please write.

New game wont start


This is terrible to say, and I feel bad for you. This sounds as though your PSP is Bricked. Tell all your friends if they are asked to upgrade by a game, plug up your PSP to the power cord and keep it charged during the upgrade needed to run the new games. If your power fails during the upgrade, you will BRICK your PSP. Contact Sony, its their fault. www.playstation.com
