PRS505 - Thought I'd bricked it! Phew!
My device bought in US and carried back to UK at the beginning of June had run out of power this morning. I charged it through USB connected to my PC for about an hour. Then after disconnecting the cable, I flicked the power switch while it was "loading" - this seemed to cause it to crash with a funny bit-map pattern striped down the sided of the screen and what seemed to be two menu pages displayed at same time.
Soft and hard reset seemed to do nothing, neither did connecting/disconnecting the USB cable a few times. Reading this thread for similar symptons left me quite worried - so left it charging again for a couple of hours - then luckily disconnected cable and it came to life again after with a full boot - I guess first time round there just wasn't enough juice in the battery. Will not let it run down so far again, and removed the SD card I'd left in. Have ordered a cheap PSP mains charged (only £1.99 plus £2.39 postage) and will be more careful in the future!
Is there anything else I should have done?
