a friend gave me a psp the only problem with it is the screen won't come on but the green light does and it does take a charge but the green light will stay on for a little bit then shut off anyone know what might be up with it?
i was thinking it might be bricked in wich case anyone wanna make a pandora set for me? :D
Sounds like a brick. -- You could try to see if the "recovery" is still active, trying holding down the "R" Right Trigger, and turning on the system.

yeah i'll try the R trigger doubt it'll work though...and i dont own a soldering gun :( looks like i'll have to check my installer thread and see if anyone's still doing pandora sets....i don't think this psp has ever been modded before so >.< !
i can't think of anyone off the top of my head around here that has a modded psp but who knows :D
i kinda thought it might be bricked since the green light comes on but it wont boot up it just shuts back down.
Hell, my psp is modded, have a pandora battery sitting around along with a magic memory stick. damn dang, you don't know the forums too well. :lol:
lol obviously not pm me your addy and i'll get them bubble mailers ready to go with my battery and memstick ^_^
Give me a while bud. I'm going to attempt to get my work schedule to a relative normalicy before I take on any projects. Right now, I'm a damn zombie.
lol yeah i hear ya man....hell you could always mail your pandora set to me and i'll mail it back when im finished :D
edit: if a pandora battery doesn't solve the problem then a short fuse may be the problem. check it out this tutorial,
i googled for a bit and this is what i came up with,
here are some interesting quotes,
"we have the same problem. anyone who already solved the problem?
I have 10 boards with this same problem, most of them for what looked liked instances where psp's were dropped (may well be the same as failed upgrades).
I am going to see if they are restorable by reflashing with a UP chip. but without trying this, I can say from experience thus far that this symptom of solid green light for 20 seconds or more then turning off or staying on until it's turned off is terminal."
"have a look at this about fuses on the psp
"OMG! will everyone who does not know about these issues stop saying.. "it's bricked!" They are not. They have an issue with power from the battery to the main board. I am working on one as we speak.
My problem seems a bit different... If i boot it up with the AC plug in and battery in, i get nothing. Just the orange charge light. If i take the AC charger out, and turn it on, the green light will flicker and turn off straight away. If i remove the battery and put it on AC only without the battery it will fire up after a few hits on the switch. I can boot into XMB and use it as per normal. Its running firmware 2.70 (hence its not bricked!)
Now first thing i thought was... Oh its just another fuse... so i took it out and bridged the fuse connector... bolted it all back together and... damn, still doing the same thing. so i checked my soldering job. perfect, but to save face, i unsoldered it and did it again, tested it before replacing the covers and found no difference. Even though the bridging tests perfect... the PSP still wont start up.. only gets the flicker if on battery...
This appears to be a power problem from the main board or somewhere else were it seems to be drawing too much power or isnt getting enough on start up (hence the reason the fuse was blown...)
You are on the right track.. the same thing happened to mine..
There are more fuses than the ones listed on Llama's site.
In my case it was the one on the attachment..
Verify first for continuity before soldering over it.
Must be a different motherboard to mine. this one i just swapped out for another anyway. wasnt worth the hassle. that fuse you are talking about does not exist on this board and some of the other resisters and the like are in different directions. i think this is a TA-79 board. what board was that photo taken from ? still looking for fuses... maybe i will find another on this board some where."
i think the same problem happened to my psp it was blown fuse .
there is a sound but no video right ?
If there is sound but no video, it could be one of three things.
