    Ive been handed over a PSP 1004,

    - it goes Black Screen when normal booting
    - it goes to Recovery mode by pressing R -> Shows 6.60 cfw
    - i cannot say if the memory card is accessible, since it wont hold the card anymore, wants to jump out, i can close the card slot though

    Some advice needed what to do for unbricking, thx in advance

    I would try to reinstall the OS, and since you have a working recovery, the most direct way is by placing the official 6.61 update in /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP and using the appropriate option in recovery...

    ...however, I would definitely replace the memory stick slot (MS-299, also includes wifi and headphone/remote socket) first!!

    just boot to OFW by holding select while booting, then reinstall CFW, if that doesnt work, boot to recovery and install OFW again
