If it’s the 2000 series (PSP Slim), then yes. Connect your PSP system to an available USB port on your computer. Turn on your PSP, then under “Settings“, select “USB Connection”. Your PSP should connect to your computer and start charging. It may take awhile, but it will charge it all the way. Hold the display button (The button with the rectangular shape at the bottom of your PSP) until the screen goes black. This will speed up the charging process and is a good method of prolonging battery life when listening to music or other things.

If that doesn’t work, try looking for an adapter lying around your house that matches the volt numbers. The PSP takes 5V. Most portable CD players use 5V adapters and are usually the same size as needed for the PSP. I suggest using an adapter that matches the volt number and fits without trouble. If the orange light doesn’t come on or the PSP acts weird after charging, I’d stop using the adapter. Ask me any questions if you have any. ;)

My usb cable will not charge my psp


Are you plugging the charging plug into the PSP?There are two plugs on the USB cable 1.the USB plug. 2.the charger plug itself. The USB cable looks like the other end that plugs into the computer only smaller.The charger plug looks like the ordinary AC adaptor.
Also note that You need the computer/device that the PSP is connected to,must be turned on,well this is true with mine anyway.
Also the USB does not charge the PSP as fast as the AC adaptor.

I am not able to start my PSP 3000 I am using a usb cord to charge the PSP, I am getting the hold light however not getting the power on please assist


When you connect the PSP via the USB, does the orange light power on? If you are using the standard USB cable and attached to the top of the PSP, from experience, it needs at least to have a little amount of battery power. If not, it will not totally power on or charge. You need the A/C adapter to charge the battery pack.

I can charge my PSP through USB cable even if its powered off. I'm using this one:

PSP chager


Try a different outlet in the wall, it might be the outlet, if it isn't the outlet, maybe it's the power cord or the battery. If it's not that, then it's your PSP. You'll have to send it to sony for a new one if you want it replaced and if youve had it for over year you're going to have to pay $90. ------The fact that it turns off when the USB DC-in is connected and that it will not power up without the battery lead me to think that either the USB charging cable is just not supplying enough amps to run the psp standalone nor charge the battery very quickly, or something is odd in the PSP itself. I'm guessing when you plug something into the DC-in socket and it detects 5V then it switches to that as a source, if the USB cant supply the current it wants then it shuts down (just a guess).

Psp wont charge or hold a charger


It could be a bad battery or you can check under the psp if you can turn it on and make sure that under Settings > System Settings > USB Charge is set to on. If it is and it isn't charging then it's a bad battery.
