    I bought a PSP-1000 from a guy for $30 but im not sure what is wrong with it. When I try to turn it on the light comes on but there is a black screen. The same thing happens without the battery while plugged into the charger.
    What should I do? I ordered a Pandora battery but I dont know what to do with it once it comes in. I want to get regular firmware on there and then hack it but i just want it working for now.

    And one more question. Once you have hacked firmware do you have to leave the MMC in or can you use another one and it still work?

    Thanks in advance.

    you need to make a mms, so a pro 2 duo to pc connector would work, and put it in the psp and then hold L and put in the pandora battery, and see if it boots.

    Also, if it was already hacked, turn it on while holding R.

    that psp doesnt necessarily have to be bricked anything could be wrong with it.

    its an adaptor to connect the memoery stick to the pc so you can make it into a magic memory stick to unbrick it

    Second PSP2k : OFW 4.01 --> 5.03 --> ChickHEN R2 --> CFWEnabler 3.60 --> 5.03MHU

    once you hack your psp you can format the mms and it will be a normal one, the mms is just needed to install certain files in flash, after that format it and it would be a regular ms

    Might be your backlight, could be bricked or a dead screen but rare. Good luck.
