    Alright i'll put some back story to my current problem. I had my psp modded in manila at some mall. What i saw was that he stuck in memory sticks that downgraded and then upgraded my psp. I don't know what my psp starting specs were but it ended up being 3.01 OE-A when he was finished.

    It was great i had some games and movies in it and it was working fine. When i flew back home my bro and I tried downloading some games and i was able to put DBZ, Guilty Gear, FFT, among other games and it was working beautifully.

    Later on i youtubed some vids of people playing old playstation games on their psp and i wanted to try it out. I downloaded legend of dragoon but it didnt seem to work. I researched a bit and found out that i needed 3.10 OE-B to run those kind of games. After finding the first forum thread that had what i was looking for, i downloaded a file that upgraded OE-A to OE-B so i was really excited. It said to place the folder into the GAME150 folder and so i did. Right when i tried using it thats when all my problems started.

    My psp would start but the screen would stay black then eventually turn itself off. I researched and discovered that i could enter the recovery screen by hold the R trigger. I tried it and after a minute or so of leaving it on it went to a blue screen which had the options

    Toggle USB
    Configuration ->
    Run program at /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP
    Advanced ->
    CPU Speed ->
    Plugins ->
    Registry hacks ->
    Exit

    I came across this site and found a thread that had a person who had the same problem as me http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/495922

    I also tried the 1.50 recovery winstaller as he did but instead for me it just stayed black. When i tried to enter the recovery menu and use the Run program at /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP it just went black again.

    If anyone can help it would be most welcomed.

    thnx Rogdrik, the recovery pack worked beautifully ... but theres still a problem. My psp will start now and i was able to input the initial information, but every time i push a direction or press a button the screen will black out for about a minute, then come back on. And will continue to do so only when i push that button or direction. Please tell me i can fix this as well.

    I really appreciate the responses and the help. I lost all hope but now i can see a small glimmer of light heh.

    might be hardware issues

    but before we jump to that

    try reflashing it again (running the recovery folder again)

    he cant run the recovery folder again since he used it to go back to 1.5

    i dont think he can use the recovery anymore

    he might need to use pandora
