    Alright, sorry about this kind of post, but I've not been able to find an answer.

    My friend has a PSP-1000, (I'm pretty sure, it's been a LONG time since I've had one)
    and it has some CFW, I can't say which one. Right now, what we're facing is,
    when the battery is inserted, the green light comes on, but nothing from the screen.

    I initially told him that I thought maybe he Pandora'd the battery, but the results are the same when the charger is plugged in without the battery.

    The green light glows, and nothing happens.

    Tried to seek a recovery with L or R, then both, nothin'.

    We're not hearing the device bootsounds either, so... I'm lost.

    Any ideas?

    Greatly appreciated, guys.

    Does anyone have any clues? I've never seen this.

    What I'm gonna suggest is pretty stupid but you didn't specify whether you confirmed it not to be the case, so... is it bricked?

    If the green light turns off a few seconds later, it means it's hardbricked. You need a pandora to unbrick.

    The green light just stays solid. I dunno what he did.
