Try taking the battery out if it works then get a non-dusty case and place it in. So when you need to turn it on just place it in. Or if you sill have a warranty call sony and tell them your problem. The reason why warranty is important is so you can take it to Stratford fair or pc world.

Try doing a hard reset by holding the power switch in the up position for around ten seconds. This will then shut off the PSP. You may then need to flick the power button either once or twice for the device to come back on. after a hard-reset, I always have to press the power on button twice to get the PSP to fire up.

    Wont stay on


    got this same problem before,dropped a psp and after that it only powers on for a while and turns off.soon i found out that the main board is twisted.when i bend the psp a little bit it turns on normally,but when i release the prissure from the grip it shuts down.the best solutiion for that is to dismantle the psp and reheat the main board using a hot air machine for about 3 min.for the mother board to return to its original position.

    Try Holding the R trigger and turn the power on at the same time. This puts you n a diffreent mode, then press the display brightness button to see the version. Power off and back on agin to see if that resets it. This is only a guess I would appreciate at least a thanks for trying.

    Hi Gohan102,

     

    Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....
