PSP won't turn on at all - green light flashes once

I have used this PSP for a while with no problems but now when you try to turn it on the green light flashes once and nothing else happens. I have tried charging it, turning it on with the battery installed, turning it on with the battery and charger in and also with just the charger powering it but it still won't come on. The screen has a small crack on it but nothing major and didn't seem to affect it initially (I bought it from a friend who was bored of it). Has anyone got any ideas???? Thanks in advance!

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.


Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

Green light is on but not flashing. Its off and the problem is that we cant turn on.Baterry is fine, just no buttoms help to turn on, it doesnt help.what the problem could be?


If I understand right. Everytime you try turning the PSP on the screen stays blank /black. If so you will need to flash the console. Email me at mr_fix-it@live.co.uk if you need any more help.

Psp problem no screen


It seems that your PSP is already bricked. Have you tried flashing the custom firmware again?

PSP is not working at all


The PSP battery you are using may be damaged. If the PSP turns on, this shouldn't be a problem, but to fix the green light not showing, just by a new battery from Wal-Mart or K-Mart.

Sound like a major hardware problem. Check on your warranty and see if it's covered. Otherwise you might be out of luck.

It wont work


that means its bricked. it means while you were updating the system software you cancelled it or turned you psp off.
The only thing you can do is to either send it back to sony. or you can buy unbricking hardware from ebay.
This is just a battery and memory card that have has software added to them.

Psp unit just stop comming on


If you know another PSP user , try using their battery on your PSP to see if it is a faulty battery. Does it work on the AC Cable? If not it then it could be power line fault and will need repair
