Note: My PSP is the bulkier, older one that doesn't recharge throught USB.
I have a slight tear in my PSP charger at the end where the plug goes into my PSP. I can still charge with it if I hold the charger at an angle where the wires connect, but it's still just a small tear. Can i fix it by soldering some extra wire i have or tape it or something?

It is possible that when you connected your charger to your laptop, it fried the capacitors in the charger. The best solution would be to take the PSP to gamestop (or like store) and see if they can use a charger to verify that your PSP is still in working condition.
I'm afraid it already burned the boards.But, I hope that you're lucky, maybe the special fuse on the board save your PSP, you can fix it by finding the service center. The problems start because of the voltage of your notebook charger too high for the 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.
First you need to check the charger . If charger is working fine , then check the power cord . If the power cord is working fine , then the problem is that the battery is dead [ can't be recharged anymore ] . You need to replace the battery in a such situation . If it's none of that , then I recommend you to replace it , if you still have the guarantee . Or just take it to the service .
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. ;)
