Okay here goes... I have a PSP 1001 A cousin lent to me. I proceeded to chickhen that shit and get some M33 running. All was well for a few days until It bricked on me. I wasn't doing anything to the internal flash, I had just been playing Parappa the rappa and I turn it off. A few hours later, I turn it back on and am greeted with a green power light, and nothing else. The backlight does not come on, nor do I get any sound. Just a green power light. Now the kicker is that from what I've seen on youtube, most bricked PSP's will shut down on their own after a little while. Mine doesn't do that. It will stay on until you take the battery out. So...I order a pandora battery and proceed to try out Rain's Ultralite on my 8gb pro duo memory stick. It wouldn't work on my card. I tried formatting it with the GUI but it couldn't inject the IPL. Even after downloading from different sources and trying on different computers. I then try the manual way through the command line and the latest Despertar del Cementerio. Following the guide stickied here Formats fine, IPL injects OK yadda yadda. When I insert it into the PSP and then put the pandora battery in, all three lights come on (green power light, wifi light and memory card access light) and still a blank screen with no backlight. Even if i hold down L trigger, it's the same deal. What would cause a PSP to pretty much randomly brick and NOT shut off automatically? Am I using too large of a pro duo card (8gb official sony mark II) or could the card be faulty in any way? I may try again tomorrow with a 4gb card if I can get my hands on one. Do I charge up the pandora battery before using it? Should my PSP be plugged in during this whole ordeal? Am I doing ANYTHING else wrong here? Does this story sound familiar to anyone? Help is appreciated, thanks!
