    Hey, I have a 3.10 OE-A PSP, at least I had one until it stopped turning on. It's DEAD, it's not recharging, I can't see a green light and it won't turn on. Is it bricked? Last thing I did was installed Triple Triad, it crashed for some reason but I turned off my PSP and turned it back on and watched some movies on it. It worked good. But when I tried turning it on today it wouldn't respond. Please help!

    The lights are already off. You see, what I'm trying to do is to get them turn on. It's like dead (as in the battery) but it won't charge and it won't turn on. The LCD is already cut off. And don't scare me like that, that's mean :p. It's probably something normal right? (trying to be optimistic)

    ok quick question have you tried turning it on while plugged into the ac adapter? Your battery may be completely dead and if that doesnt work well then your boned beacause you cant send it back to sony because you got homebrew. If first option doesnt work you could either disect the psp and see if any thing is out of place. Last resort send to me so I can tinker with it! Lol. Good Luck Man. I take no responsibility if you f*** it up more

    Try buying an External Battery Charger and use it to
    charge the battery.
    After that, place it in ur PSP and try to turn it on.

    It may be ur only hope.

    try taking the battery out of it for a couple hours then put it back in and plug in the ac adapter in overnight (dont try turning it on in between)

    you never know it might work

    I don't think the problem is from the battery, because prior to that the battery had more than half its power left, still I pluged it to the AC Charger overnight. When I woke up next morning it didn't turn on nor did it blink. So I'm guessing there's something wrong in the power fuse or something, I'll just give it to my friend who actually knows how to deal with that sort of stuff. Thanks alot guys.

    ya it is defiantly hardware related so you will probably end up taking it apart.
