    You bricked it, there's not much that can be done:

    1) Get a new PSP
    2) Send it off to Sony and get it repared, but with 3.52 firmware (Ouch)
    3) Get a new motherboard fitted
    4) Send it off to some guy on ebay that offers an unbricking service

    Clever guy, see, the problem is, if you had read the thread, he's trying to do the exact opposite... (BTW, that means he wants to turn it ON)

    And just to add to what i said above: He can't do what it shows in the video, as he doesn't have CFW

    Also that's old, anyone with custom firmware can do the exact same by using recovery mode to recover to 1.5 or replace your flash0 files.

    Hey R1chyB, earlier today/last night (wherever you are in the world) a Universal PSP unbricker was released by Team Noobz/C+D.

    You can get the files needed from here, it creates a Jig-Kick out of a spare battery and a memory card. You will need someone you know with a homebrew enabled PSP to make them for you though, as it is done though the PSP. It will reset your firmware to 1.50 after the unbrick.
