This is a common problem that is usually a result of a poor (Dead) battery. Word of the wise is if you decide to NOT use your PSP for an extended period of time, you should remove the battery from the unit. A wall charger is required if you do not replace the rechargeble battery. I hope this information resolves your issue, and I wish you the best. Replacing the battery should be your first bet and is cheaper in the long run.

My psp wont turn on. the amber chargeing light is on, even left for a few hours to charge still wont charge and replaced the battery.


Hi there!
When you charge your PSP with the charger (USB/wall) does the power light turn to amber? If it does not, It's possible that your charger (USB/wall) is already broken. You may need to purchase a new one.
If it does, you may have either a loose power switch (which happens on my PSP Go) or you may need to have your unit checked with a qualified technician.
Hope this helps!

My sony psp go wont charge...


Try a different outlet in the wall, it might be the outlet. If it isn't the outlet, maybe it's the power cord. Try to use someone else's PSP charger and see if it works. If it If it's not that, then it's your PSP. If you had it since launch then it will cost $90 to get fixed.

PSP cannot be charge through wall charger


Maybe the powerpoint that you used isn't working!

Try charging on another powerpoint!

If it isn't the chargers' fault, then it must be your battery, or PSP DC IN connector, where you insert the charger into the PSP.

My psp wont charg


If it won't charge and wont power up then same thing happened to me. If you are willing to open up your psp there is a video on youtube that can show you whats wrong. The cable that connects the buttons on the right side most likely disconnected from the main board and the right side of the psp including the buttons, the power switch and the top right trigger won't respond. When you try to turn on the psp and when its charging if the light won't come on then you might have this problem.

PSP Charging problem


TEST : Take battery out. Plug in to wall. Wait 30+ secs with psp on. if the power turns off, then its the adapter which is broken, which costs about 5$

OTHERWISE:

Your battery needs to be changed. Standard flavor costs bout 8$, extra long lasting spicy flavor costs 16$. (lol, chips)

Seriousley though, after some time, wear, and in some cases, temp. changes, the battery can become so weak, that it will only hold about a 5 second charge. Once you get less than 1 hour play time W/O charger, need to get a new battery.
