    i've had my slim PSP for a while, and one day after playing i threw it in my bag and went to my friends house. we were walking so it may have gotten a little shaken up. i got back and tried to turn it on. the green light turned on but no audio or video shows up. ive done research and it seems that most cases of "bricked" psps have the light just turn off after a second, so i really don't know what's the matter. can anyone help? thanks

    my friend had a slighlty similair problem. Try using someone else's or a new natter in it.... or plug it in the charger take out the battery and see what happens.

    If the screen looks cracked...well, you know that you would need to replace the lcd.
    You might have also disconnected something, too, when you were running around.
    You might need to get into your psp and see if everything looks as it should.

    It could be any number of problems. the most likely is the PSP is bricked, if so it will need to be re-flashed with a pandora battery and magic memory stick. the second thing is you could have a broken lcd, so if re-flashing it doesn't work than that is the highest possibility. Or you could have a blow lcd backlight fuse, to test to see if that is the problem, hold the psp right under a light source, and look very closely, if you still see the icons, barely, then your backlight fuse is out and will need to be briged.

    Buy it dinner and take it out for a date. If it still won't turn on, try some romantic music and heavy petting.
