    I was trying to use recovery (the hexitnow installer) and i went into the recovery menu and ran the recovery to 1.5 and the screen went black it almost looks like a semi brick. I can still access the recovery menu. What happened here?

    If all you have is a recovery menu you can boot into you semi-bricked it and will have to recover the firmware to 1.50

    Try changing the brightness setting, that what happened to me. There's a glitch with newer PSP motherboard that will cause the brightness to be reversed.

    you mean you bricked your psp and cudnt use the recovery mode lol. heres the golden rule: if you can access recovery your safe lol, you just need to make sure you have the right files in the RECOVERY folder inside psp/game
