If it's under warranty send it back, if it's not then do this. Order a replacement power switch online, ebay is pretty good for psp parts. There's 5 screws holding the front cover of the PSP together two on the right that are recessed, you'll need a long skinny precision screwdriver , there's two more under the warranty stick behind the battery and one more in the middle of the silver metal piece. The power stick assembly is a separate board that plugs into the psp and a easy repair. Just be careful once you remove the faceplate one dust particle and you'll be taking it apart again to clean the inside of the screen.

Just quit. Worked fine one day. Next day went to turn it on and nothing happened. Fan is little over a year old.


Control switch, circuit breaker, or loose wire are main suspect.
Rarely does a motor just stop working.

Check circuit breaker.
Open control switch and test for power and check for loose connections.
Install ordinary on-off switch and see if function resumes.
Check wire connections at fan.

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!

Psp ower problem


I had something like this happen to me, but I was lucky enough that it started working again. Try putting it in a bag or container of rice, because rice absorbs moisture, so it might pull any water out of it. Hope this helps.

Since you are looking inside, try this. Trace the wires that come from the power switch back to the Motherboard. The wires from the switch will connect to two pins on the motherboard. Carefully jump those two pins with a screwdriver and the machine should turn on. I would suggest doing this with all drives and cards unplugged first.

Dropped my PSP! Screen Blank!


Well if that`s true that if a handheld is broken when dropped then I shouldn`t have any working handhelds. Well, if you still have the companies number you should call Sony and ask them.

ps, tell them it was your friends.

PSP will not turn on


hmmm... that sucks. Could be a fried power slide-switch. If no power is getting through the system, even when using the AC adaptor, it's probably something in the power chain.

It might be of benefit if you could try the battery and power adaptor in someone elses PSP, if they both work then it's probably something internal, and it's not unheard of for the power switches to go kaput.

If it's under warranty, take it back. If not, you'll need to have it checked out I think.

Power problems


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....
