Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

PSP works but battery is messed up.

This is a continue of the last one. I got the charger and it works but it does not charge. I think i shortcircuited the battery.I was looking for cords that might charge it, and plugged a cord ( dont know what) into the headphone jack. It dimmed the lights in my house so i unplugged it. My friend said he bought a new battery but im not exactly sure if he did or not. Could that be why it wont charge? Please help, i really dont want to have to play it with the charger all the time but if i have to i will it doesnt matter i just would like to know. Thanks!

    Today i have it sitting on the charger because i got a memory stick for it. The Battery meter will blink on for about half a second. Could this mean that it might still work? I did make a hairline crak in the place you plug the charger in on accident. I tried usinga ps2 cord before i got the charger. If i could repair that dou you think i could get the battery meter to stay on?

    I bought a new battery but the power and the hold light will not blink or turn on. I think they short circuited or moved. I took it apart awhile back and think that may be it. i just thought i would put this up.

After I charge my PSP ot last for about 10 mins but I charge it up fully


You need a new battery! Only charge your psp untill full. Then disconnect the charger! If you leave it on charge constant you damage the battery! Also battery's dont last forever and a psp is not in its prime. Good luck!

It sounds like you have either a dead (broken) battery or your battery isn't making good contact with the motherboard.

Remove your battery and make sure there is nothing stuck in the terminal slots. Also make sure the metal contacts in the batter chamber of the PSP are clean. Then replace the battery.

Give it a little extra push on the back of the battery after you put it in near the battery terminals to make sure you get a solid connection.

If it still doesn't work then you may have a bad battery and will have to replace it. They can be found on ebay fairly cheap. (dont buy the $3 ones though they last about 10 minutes.)

I cant charg my psp i cant find my charger


When you say you can't cahrge it, do you mean on your PC, PS3 or with the charger? I don't think the PS3 charges the PSP, I have no idea about the PC, but if the PSP doesn't charge using it's charger, it is either the battery, the charger, or the psp charger outlet. If it is the battery, buy a new one. If it is the charger outlet, it is a good idea to have 2 working batteries and to buy an external charger at game crazy, game stop, or from sony. This way, you can switch out batteries while playing, like me :). If it is the charger, buy a new one.
I would suggest first trying to buy a new battery. If it works, you are good to go and your old battery was broken, otherwise your charger/ charger outlet is broken. Buy an external charger. Then, you will be able to charge the batteries while one is in the PSP.
A new battery and an external charger cost about $70, but it is worth it. I hope i helped.

Ok i just bought a new psp slim battery and a new charger and my psp wont charge and i dont know what to do but, i do have a psp slim 2001 (ice silver) and i bought a psp charger and battery thats 2000 so...


this is easy i solved it! buy a charger from gamestop that you have to take the battery out and then put it in the charger and charge it that way! that way if your fuse inside your psp is out it will charge the battey without putting it in the psp so all you do with the item is: take your battery out, put it in the alternative charger from gamestop (does not come with psp slim 2001 or 2000) plug the charger in the while charge the battery then bam!! there you go problem solved have a fun time playing your psp!

Psp doesn't want to turn on


The polarity of the charger you used is wrong or the wrong voltage, and has messed up the programming n the battery.  You may be lucky if you get a new battery and use the Right charger, It might fix it.  Sony put a battery in the PSP that has a memory chip in it, and I think it will automatically disconnect if the wrong vooltage hits it, or wrong polarity. be warned that I have seen where someone got a new battery and it did not solve the problem. If this happens to you Contact Sony at the following number.
