    It's called a brick. What PSP version do you have? Take off the battery and check what the sticker beneath it says, should be PSP 100x, PSP 200x or PSP 300x (x being a random number between 0 and 9, which is the region code).

    OK, a US PSP 2000. With these it's hard to tell which mainboard version was built in (more or less a guess). What you can do is go to www.dealextreme.com and buy a Pandora Battery, they should be around 4 to 5 US$ delivered, but delivering can take some time (China-bound seller). Then google for a Magic Memory Stick Maker. Also there are some good tutorials on how to repair a brick with a pandora battery on youtube.
