So got a PSP Slim 2006 Im planning to sell. Now I remember doing a pandora battery years ago and IPL injection. So when I insert the battery the PSP auto boots. When the PSP is switched on from coldboot, it stays on a blackscreen unless the memory card with the IPL is inserted.

How do I return it back to normal so ant memory card can work or without memory card?

Use this to convert the Pandora battery back to normal.

A Pandora battery, by it's nature turns the PSP on and looks for an IPL it recognises. Therefore you need that IPL on a memory stick for it to result in anything other than a black screen.

Either restore the battery to normal, or inject a Pandora compatible IPL on EVERY memory stick you plan to use that battery with (note this may cause issues with fakes).

I'm not sure whether you're talking about how the battery was turned into a Pandora, or how the Multiboot IPL was injected. I'll assume the latter since i've already linked to a tool to un-pandorise the battery - Rain's IPL and Memory Stick Tool will do it. However, if you're selling it i'd really consider normalising the battery.
