Hi, I'm after 3 psp's

Hi, my 3 boys all want a psp for xmas so looking for 3 in good condition preferably with firmware that can be changed easily, ie 1.50 or one of the oe's. I prefer to use these as opposed to homebrew. Would also like to know what cheapest prices for these are new in shops etc. Dont care if they are slims or not as long as good con and work well. Thanks for any replies.

1st off, welcome to HUKD forums :)

you will find that ANY PSP is able to run custom firmware (what you refer to as "OE") you just need the right equipment to do it.
once you have a PSP (phat) running on custom firmware you will be able to create a memory card and battery that will do all the hard work for you on any psp phat or slim.

you should be looking to pay around £80 for a decent PSP Phat with custom firmware, inc box, head phones, memory sticks etc.
people on here DO sell them for less, but there is always a scramble and haggling going on when they are at a lower price.

A slim and Lite would be cheap at £90 and you should look to pay around £100 for a pristine 2nd hand version, as these are relatively new (although you can get import versions of the sim and lite for around £110 brand new from certain places)

Hope this info is useful to you, and if you need to know anything else about the PSP give me a shout,

Mike is the man who knows what he is talking about.My hubby taught him well :)
im selling one here with custom firmware and 4 gig stick

Thanks for all your replies. Mike, i was under impression that slims etc couldnt be changed to oe or play from memory stick. Legend, i have sent you a pm.
you just need a pandora and a magic memory stick.:)
Havent heard of either, how much are they please and what eaxactly is a pandora?
lol i just put up a tutorial on how to make em in the misc section.
Seems a bit complicated, think I'll just by the standard psp and use the oe firmware again but thanks for the tip anyway.
No probs but there is a guy called Mike he will help you make one if you speak with him i am sure :)
Its the one who welcomed you.
What extras do you get with pandora that you dont get with oe software and what is difference between memory stick and magic memory stick please?
a pandora is not a firmware it is a service battery.a magic stick is a regularly memory stick which has been logically formated and contains the files needed to downgrade your psp.
Thanks, think i'll stick with oe. Just gotta find some psp's now but thanks for all your help
pandora battery and magic mem are used to unbrick a PSP.
A PSP brick is when you either try to downgrade or mess about with the PSP flash that the PSP stops working. Pandora makes it work again.

There are simpler guides on the net but the guide i posted makes your battery both pandora and normal at the same time.
it doesn't just unbrick but can be used to downgrade official firmware.

Am new to hukd and don't really understand the etiket yet. Have bought a japenese version psp from this site. Is this the place to ask what the difference is between this and an "english" one?
Asked this in a post already but seems a better place here. Hope you don't mind.
Ok, I know it's "Japanese". lol
Nah, there are not many differences, just instruction booklet and it is not covered by any sony guaranie.
Will play all games as PSP's are region free, although if you want to watch UMD films they will only be region 2 (UK and Asia etc) as for some reason they are region coded for films!!!

Hi, so you're saying they can unbrick any thats been done. I bricked one of mine(older one) trying to take it back to 1.5 and may have it still lying around. May just need a new battery, does this method work for all of them? Btw, how much and where do i get the magic memory stick and whats difference between this and ordinary 1.
All you need is a normal pro duo 256 or above and then it has to be logically formated and the correct files placed on it.
basil: if you cant fix it ill buy it from you for a good price, I repair PSP's so could use it for spare screen etc.

Thanks, i dont think i'd sell it cos i am gonna be getting at least 3, maybe even 1 for myself so parts would come in handy. Out of interest though if i had 10 bricked psp's how many do you think pandora would fix on average?

LOL, none!

If you come across a bricked PSP these days, it means someone has knackered the nand chip (normal bricks will be fixed with pandora, tats why you wont find them on ebay, I know what your thinking :P).
A nand brick (where the nand gets corrupted and wont format properly due to the corruption) is bin worthy, and only good for spares.
Shame your not selling, I have to get a screen replaced today and was hoping I could have used that, never mind.

Thanks for replies mike. Well, was thinking about fixing some up from ebay but never mind, noticed theres a few people on the fixing them anyway for £15
yeah be really careful, as I say, if it is nand bricked its very hard to fix, and a nand bricked slim is ONLY fixable if you have a previous nand dump from that console as they are encrypted!!

Is there any difference between how the nand brick reacts compared to normal brick, ie green light on but black screen and no sound?
Plus is it only slims that get nand bricked? Thanks for all your help
Hi, just made pandora battery and mem stick and using my working psp, then i tried to use it on my old bricked psp. Know its just bricked as i was the one to do it. Have tried starting normal and holding down 1st left then right key but still nothing. Am i doing something wrong or is it just beyond repair.
Right, finally got the battery and jigstick working, when i use it on my boys psp it comes up with the menu but when i try it on my bricked psp the power light stays on as do the mem stick light and one below it, for about 10 secs then all go off but still got black screen. Is there anything else i can try please?
I can fix any PSP im in Berks
I can fix any PSP im in Berks

You cant fix this! no screen display, even with a pandora!!

Was thinking it may be the screen but decided it cant be cos the mem stick and wifi lights stay on till machine goes off. If just screen the mem light would flash. Totally out of ideas, think you may be right Mike that its probably the chip and fit for the bin only
What do you think it could be then maxymiles?
Basil i might be selling my PSP, Firmware 2.80 hardly even been used... when i went to switch my PSP on to check Firmware i had to enter date etc again because been soo long. In really good condition, il say must been used for about a month and thats all. As my old one broke and got this one new from PC World. 1Gb memory stick also included and Lumines 2.... when i get round looking for the box which is somewhere it will also include charger etc.

Would be looking for £85
Hi Bailz, thanks for the offer, gonna try to get this working for another day or 2 but if no luck by then i will have yours from you if you havent sold it if you're willing to wait a bit longer, cash probs etc
Yeah thats fine, another guy is wanting it from me as well but he hasnt got back to me as of yet but il keep you posted. Only accept Paypal mate. :)
