I found a PSP 1000 in the trash!

Hello all.

I found a PSP (PSP-1001-B2) in the trash the other day, so I decided to bring it home and test it out. It's in pretty good condition, the only thing broken is the analog stick and the battery inside was a bit dirty (3.6v 1800mAh PSP-110). I went out and purchased an extra battery (3.6 2200mAh PSP-280), a universal charger and a SanDisk Memory Stick Pro Duo 4GB.

I turned it on, the green light pops up and after a few seconds the PSP turns off. I've also tried plugging the PSP into the computer by USB but it does not power one. After doing a bit of research online I *think* I have a bricked PSP. I don't know how to go about un-bricking it. I'm assuming that the person who had this PSP threw it away because they could not un-brick it either. But I'm willing to give it a shot. From what I can tell, it seems that I need a Pandora battery and a Magic Memory Stick. I've tried to make my own Pandora battery, but this seems to be an issue, all the tutorials online do not seem to show my particular PSP battery at all.



Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sorry if I'm a noob, but what's so special about this power supply that you'd want to repair it?

It's probably not bricked, it's probably fucked. Wouldn't waste money on it trying to fix

Ah, I phrased it wrong. I meant I'm willing to fix the PSP, not the power supply.

I'm fairly sure a Pandora battery is just a standard battery with the firmware reporting all zeros for the serial number. You can accomplish this yourself for a quick reflash just by shorting out the microcontroller in the battery iirc. Google on how to make your own pandora and you should get a few results.
