Its most probably bricked which means there's nothing you can do except use it to build a wall with or buy a new one. I don't know why you'd want to try and remove the battery whilst its doing the most crucial of things so its kinda you and your brothers fault.

I never knew upgrading firmware could Brick your PSP. Were you just upgrading firmware, or trying to downgrade?

If it's updating and it warns you not to shut-down and then it loses power it would probably brick it.

Owned. I feel no sympathy, only buy expensive equipment if you have a brain.

The updates format flash0:/ so...yeah. smile.gif

@Topic starter: Well that was a stupid thing to do. Maybe you should follow the instructions in the future if you get a new PSP? dozingoff.gif

I'm glad you pointed this out. I have my PSP sitting here ready to upgrade, the battery is low and it's on AC Power. I think i'll wait till later.

You accident may have prevented a few similar mistakes. icon14.gif

Why do you think the instructions tell you to have 100% charge and system plugged in? It takes some extra voltage to reset eeprom cells in flash memory, and even if you unplug 100% charged PSP during an update there is a high risk of errors.

I attempted to downgrade my psp a while back and ended up bricking it. I couldn't care less either. The whole thing was getting boring without homebrew and I was willing to risk bricking it to get homebrew...Oh well

You do know the only reasons people brick when downgrading is because they cannot read the instructions MPH or Dark_Alex states. I've upgraded and downgraded over the period of one year many times. Mine is still working. 1.5.

From 1.5 to 2.0 to 1.5 to 2.71 to 1.5 to 2.0 to 1.5

Look on the sony site for help. Maybe you can send it to Sony, and they can put a new motherboard in.

And why would they do that, all they have to do is reflash the bios with the appropriate software, something that the average joe doesnt have access to.

Don't you mean "breaking"?

@Topic Starter: My advice would to contact a Sony Technical Repair Center{or whatever it's called} to fix your problem.

But if all else fails, you could buy a new one.

Actually the right word is "bricking".

I never knew upgrading could brick a psp either. I though the only minimal risk of bricking was a bad-done downgrade bored.gif
