if you have a bricked psp you are basicly screwed. the sony company has made this happen on purpose to get more peoples psps to break so they have to buy new one. this has happend to so many people it has a name "Bricking." the sony company could have easily fixed this but were greedy @%!$@# and decided to keep it the way it was and not give out a disk to re-boot the psp. while i was uploading for a game i had just bought for 40 dollars and had been searching for for a while, the power cord acidentaly became unplugged and then the psp basicly commits its own version of suicide and the whole entire system stops working after paying 180 for the system 40 for the game and other games, 10 for he usb connector, and 15 for the memory card and 5 for the screen protectors, then the sony company thinks it would be a good idea for you to spend 90 dollars for you to get a refurbished one from them. i have to say i am a little more than pissed of at sony, the company knew this would happen, one small mistake and your 300 dollars is passed on to sony.
