    Hello
    this is my first post so forgive me if I do anything wrong

    This morning I went to turn on my psp and it just showed the green light for about 30 seconds and then it shut off. I have the 2200MAH battery, you know the extended battery right? I have never had CFW it is a psp 2001 it about 3 to 3.5 years old. I have the regular charger and I have not dropped it

    It is bricked, you need a pandora battery and a magic memory stick to fix it again, if that works. If you have the so-called "unhackable" motherboard, it is damaged permanently. I don't know of a reliable method to check the motherboard version of a US-PSP without opening it, so you just have to try.
    For the pandora battery get the cheapest one off www.dealextreme.com, should be this one here:
    http://www.dealextreme.com/p/psp-unbricker-pandora-battery-for-psp-1000-2000-1800mah-3-6v-12472 takes about 2 to 3 weeks to arrive and google for magic memory stick maker. Then use a small magic memory stick (less than 2 gb does best) and a cardreader to create the magic memory stick. Insert the stick into your PSP, then keep the L-Button pressed and insert the pandora battery. It will start automatically and if it works it will bring you to a menue offering to install 5.00 official firmware or 5.00 m33 custom firmware. Your choice then. Good luck.
