how would I fix my broken psp? Answered

I recently bid on a psp on ebay for $26. they said that they plugged it in to the usb port on their computer and it stopped working. it won't turn on, etc. I was wondering if there were any other options other than a pandora's battery that I could try. thanks!

ps- here's the auction- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290324278022

What you have here is a bricked PSP. All you will need a battery and a memory stick, Let me give you a little lesson (you might already know this) PSP can get bricked and you can unbrick them with a magic memory stick (just a plain old memory stick that has some stuff on it) and a Pandora's Battery, you can easily make one, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmZwtRSTMAE. After you make the battery you can always turn it back into a regular one (I'll add a link at the bottom). And for the memory stick you can get the dowload from me because I'm nice at mcboyia@yahoo.com another thing you can Hack your PSP, but thats a whole other story. Once you get the dowload from me, I will give you some additional help.

not all standard batteries can be turned into a pandora. To add to the users question - no, you can't unbrick a psp without a pandora battery.

I just read the auction - they were trying to flash the firmware, and buggered it up. They are lying :D

so, does this mean that I can fix it with a pandora's battery?

its not even guaranteed - but it is the only 'best' known way to fix a software brick.

how do you know he lied? by the way, I can still use it for parts. my umd drive is messed up, along with my analog stick. so it helps anyway.

indeed - but you can get replacement parts from somewhere like ebay or dealextreme.com for super cheap. "he plugged it into the computer, then it fried"? I just dont believe it. Nothing about the firmware or operating system is touched while its plugged in - just the memory card. Worst you could do is wreck the memory card by unplugging improperly - or it got static shocked (very rare) and is totally dead.

oh well. I'll just stop bidding. if I get outbid, whatever. if I don't, then I get a psp that will hopefully be ressurected, and if not, will have some great parts.

oh, and by the way, I'm planning on using my current battery as a pandora. I've used it before, to hack my own.
