Update on the bricked PSP… So I spoke to a someone at the local Sony retail store… $120 (CDN) to fix the PSP. Keeping in mind that all that my nephew did was turn it off when he saw a dialog he didn’t understand, that is a lot of money. I’m especially unhappy because I know that this must be a common issue and a simple fix (open it up, flash the chips to the factory default firmware and then maybe re-update to the latest firmware… all simple procedures, but ones that only Sony can do once the machine refuses to start up).
