Hold reset when you power on and see if preloader comes up.
When you power on again after checking for preloader, see if the disc light flashes twice quickly. If it does then you have bootmii installed as boot2.
The info you gave is a little sparse. What system menu were you on, and what game was it? Even if the game was out of region it would only be a semi brick if my logic is working right and you would still be able to get something. Check for those two and report back.
