    ok, heres the story. I gave my PSP to a guy at the computer swap meet (like a sunday market for computers) and I bricked or semi-bricked my PSP and asked if he could unbrick it and put a mod chip in it to prevent this from happenong again. So he said "i'll take it back to the shop and see if it can be recovered for u" then he said "it'll cost another 160$(ausie currency) to give u a new motherboard if its dead" so what i did was leave him my phone number and all that and he'll give me a call if its recoverable. now what i'm sceptical about is how he might cheat me out of 160$. So i wanna scare him a little by my knowledge. So what i wanna no is how u can tell if a motherboard is dead or not so i can tell.

    what does it do when you turn it on?
    are you on custom firmware?
    you can tell if its bricked just by turning it on .
    and mod chips dont work with a ta-082 motherboard so if your wanting a chip ull have to get a new motherboard anyway. iv seen them somewhere with custom firmware already installed for somet like £50english so $121aus. but dont remember where it was. but i did see them so.

    that doesnt sound bricked to me.
    if you can get to the recovery menu you safe. you should be able to if its getting that far.
    just reinstall 3.03oe-c and it should be sorted.

    Next time use edit button and yes u could fix it. Since u have cf a easy way of doing it is turn it on by holding R button and a sky blue or purple screen will go up go to toggle usb and connect it to comp in the game folder make a folder called recovery and in recovery put in the 1.50 eboot.pbp then go to run program at /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP the sony installation screen should comp up and u can downgreade it to 1.5 then u can upgrade to custom firmware again. But u dont have the psp now so...
    And with the picture thing u hafta login click My Account click · Edit personal information and at the bottom will be a sig. type w/e u want there and for pictures u hafta upload it on photobucket or w/e and it will give u a fourm link then paste it in the sig area.
