    Help!!! My PSP won't Turn on. The Green light comes on, but the UMD drive doesn't spin up, the memory card light doesn't flash and there's no picture. I was upgrading the firmware and then it stopped at 50%!!! The psp battery was full and it was plugged in, but it still shut off! Now I don't get anything. It's not under waranty so i'm free to tamper with it. Is there any reset code? I tried lots, but none seem to work. Is there something on the mother board that can fix it? My charger AND Battery works on a friends psp, so it's not that! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

    SOLUTION:

    one more thing,, try using a different memory stick,,, hope this works!!

    My PSP was 3.51. The pandora battery won't help because I can't put anything on the memory stick because I can't connect my computer to psp and vice versa. Is there a way to connect a bricked psp to the computer?

    I'd love to know that too. I wonder if there's something in Service Mode that would allow you to activate the USB?

    I can't even see the menu in Service Mode because I have a Slim. So right now I can't do anything with my PSP at all. :(

    But, I may have some advice. There's this website called DealExtreme (I hope it's okay to mention that here; I won't provide a link to it, though). They make cheap rip-off products and have free worldwide shipping. My idea is to buy a cheap MS Pro Duo card reader USB stick from them and try to format my memory stick back into a MMS using that and the TotalNewbi EasyInstaller package.

    I've already ordered the card reader; it was less than $4. I'll let you know if my plan is successful. :]

    (Btw, be careful, do a lot of research and make sure you pick a product with decent user reviews. DealExtreme is ridiculously cheap for very good reasons.)

    But heck, what's $4 and free shipping. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work.

    you will not know if your mem stick is malfunctioning unless you use it for installing CFW... mem stick with bad sectors will still work as your game mem stick,, you can still put isos and csos in it,, the only problem during the installation of CFW is its a little bit sensitive about this bad sectors of your mem stick,,, you usually get a PSAR decode error XXXXXX then your psp is bricked,,,

    BTW you cannot read the psp in your computer once you've had this problem,,, you cant even go to the recovery mode... try using a new or different memory stick to install the CFW... follow the guide on the link that i posted,,, sure it'll help you a lot!!! :D

    I can't install it because I don't have a MS Pro reader in my computer. I don't have an external one too :( I always used to use the psp connecter to connect it to the computer. And my friend just went away on holidays too, so I can't use his psp to do it.

    If you have a few dollars to spare, you could try DealExtreme (google it). They do very cheap hardware. For most things, I wouldn't recommend them. However, they sell Pro Duo card readers for about $3 each, and FREE shipping (even on one cheap little item like that). Shipping takes around 3 weeks though, I think.

    If they work, that might help you. If not... ah well, no big loss for $3. :)

    I've ordered one myself, with the hopes of using it to unbrick my Slim.

    I borrowed my friends reader. I did the install, but it doesn't work with my psp "FAT". The mspro indicator light doesn't blink either to read it anyway!

    if you can borrow another psp to somebody else,, then this might just solve your problem,, create a magic mem stick using somebody else psp... then try creating the pandoras battery in that psp,,,

    btw,, make sure that you will be borrowing a psp with CFW... ok?? just to make things easier...

    alright?? i've had this problem and solved it using the universal unbricker... :)
