    i was using my PSP, then the battery died so i charged it over night. i woke up the next morning and all it does when i turn it on is go to a blank page, then turn itself back off. it doesnt even say anything :(

    Please don't post multiple threads, that's against the forum rules.
    And sounds like a brick, i don't know how it could've happened though...

    If its still under warranty, you could trade it in for a new one.

    What firmware is your psp by the way.If you are running custom firmware then maybe try to boot in to recovery mode and take it from there.

    Dumb question:

    Did you take the battery out? Do you have OE? If so, try to hold R upon powering up.

    Since you dont have custom firmware you can't boot in to recovery.This is only possible with custom firmware.And like someone else said most likely you got your self a brick since you said the psp turns off after some time by it self.
    Sorry!

    I agree with moon1990 if the battery charge is low or it is defective and won't hold a charge then you would get that effect.

    Even if you have the PSP plugged into a wall outlet if there isn't enough charge in the battery the PSP will try booting then would just turn off.

    So try replacing the battery. You could also have a bad charger. Try replacing that as well. Do you have a friend or a family member with a PSP that you could use their battery or charger and test to see if this could be the problem?

    Those are a few things you can try to do before declaring the PSP a brick.

    If your so knowledgeable in the PSP Modscene then explain why you guys say its absolutely a brick. Instead you just post a 1 liner oh its bricked buy another.

    This could very well be a battery issue or a charging issue. So declaring it a brick without exhausting all possibilities is just ridiculous.

    As well the poster said he has not tried flashing his PSP with custom firmware.

    Since there is a slight chance to brick a PSP when doing a downgrade and upgrade to custom firmware then what would the chances of the PSP bricking when there has been no flash to the PSP at all?

    I always thought a brick meant you have screwed up your PSP beyond repair. In this situation I would assume it is some sort of hardware problem which could be fixed. (Battery/Charger issue) If it can be fixed then the PSP is not bricked.

    Of course you will get people to jump at the chance to buy the PSP off you for parts. 1 they will pay very little for it and 2 if all they have to do is buy a new battery or charger for the PSP they will make a pretty good turn around by selling it for twice as much as what they had paid you for it.

    This person did not mod there PSP.... doesnt know what OE so it may be just defective hardware, ie battery or power supply. Try using a know good battery from another PSP, or get a know working charger and try to get that old battery to take a charge.

    If you have a buddy that has a psp, try putting his battery in your psp and try seeing if it works. make sure his battery is charged. doing this costs u nothing before u go and buuy urself a new battery, or psp ^_^

    This applies to you guys above.

    you guys were such a great help, i am definatly going to try another battery/charger, since you guys know what your talking about. Once again thanks so much, and i will definatly keep you guys posted, just watch this thread :)

    Also, if for some reason the battery/charger isn't the case. Then could i possibly install a custom firmware without having to boot the PsP. or could i reinstall the OS?
