    Its time to get some help back :p

    Ive got a friends PSP. It wont turn on so I'm guessign theres a problem with the switch. If i put in the UV Unbricker battery which automatically turns on the battery light flashes green quickly over and over but it still doesnt turn on.

    When putting in the MS and the batt it wont go into pandora / UV mode it still just flashes the batt light and the MS light doesnt light up.

    Im guessing this is a hardware fault.

    Any ideas?

    Ive got the UV unbricker and pandora, the green light just blinks on for half a second and then disappears again. BTW the switch does work, I was using a dead battery earlier. Still same problem though.

    Tried leaving battery out, turning on without battery, turning on with service mode battery with UV unbricker and pandora. No idea what to do now!

    Hey chwoolgar, I am guessing that this is a hardware issue. It sounds like the power board's fault in my opinion... Anybody know anything more though? I am just using my most common sence to answer it.

    Ive got the UV Unbricker and Pandora (2 Different battery and MS) and both have been tested on other PSP's.

    Still not working after I left battery out all night. Cant find a small enough screwdriver to get into it

    Update:

    This is quite strange.
    I have opened up the PSP and tried again. Same.
    I have taken off the LCD and tried again and the green light lights up fully.

    At this point i though lsoe connection.

    Plugged LCD back in and tried again and it wont turn on.

    Any ideas?

    Worked it out.
    LCD screen gone. Completely smashed in, only noticeable when the backlight turns on and it wouldnt turn on before i unplugged one of the connections.
