If your on an OE firmware your PSP will be fine, just try to start the PSP up while holding the R trigger, if you get a screen called recovery menu then you will be fine. If not then you need to buy a new PSP because that one is done, but yeah if you get a menu screen then your fine. Just look up how to recover your brick from the recovery menu and unbrick your PSP, good luck.
