    I don't think that's bricked, ur UMD laser is damaged that's all. And yes, any PSP can be bricked by removing the battery or power source midway through an update when the update files are being flashed to the PSP unit.

    no, it shouldn't, but it might.i've never dropped my psp so badly that it moved the inside of the psp, so i don't know.but i'm 99% sure it won't do that.
