Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Battery problem My son dropped his second hand PSP. The battery came out and now it only works when it is plugged into the wall. With the battery installed it shows 100% charged, but it will not turn without the wall plug. Because of this we can't download v5.01. It tells us that the wall plug and battery are required for upload. What can I do about the battery problem?

PSP powers up, black screen, no sound


It could be, although if it hasn't been modified in anyway it could be the battery. If your son has used this battery so many times, say a couple months or years, the motherboard or chip could malfunction, causing shortage of power. Try getting a replaceable battery, or if you know another friend or guy that has a son/daughter with an extra battery try using it to save money. If it's not the battery, could be the firmware, or version. Hope these solutions help, let me know if they do or don't.
Good Luck!

Psp will shut off in 5 minutes


could be a faulty battery.

they just use a NMH type battery similar to a cell phone, and they DO die occasionally, or if its been used a lot and not charged properly.
you can buy replacements from gaming stores, and from online auction sites. they go from US$10 to US$25 so shop around for a good price.

It could even be your PSP wall charger that isnt delivering enough juice to the battery?

My sons psp will work only when it is plugged into the wall. He did drop it and that is when this issue started. Is the system broke or could it be an issue with the battery?


If it works while plugged into the wall, it's a good chance it's just the battery. Power it down (select turn off system from the menu) and then remove the battery. Check to make sure nothing's cracked in the battery compartment and reinstall the battery, and try it again. Keep in mind if it's been a few days since the battery's been charged it may be low, so watch for that when turning it back on. If this doesn't work, you can buy a replacement battery, but make sure you buy the right kind, as they are different depending on your model. Good luck!

Sony psp problem


Remove the battery for 15 minutes, connect the AC Adapter and install the battery again.
It that doesn't work, remove the battery again, wait 15 minutes, install it and plug the AC Adapter.
It's a weird problem but in my PSP i get around that way.

Try removing the battery and reinserting it, if you are plugged to an outlet directly try using a different charger it might have burnt out as this commonly happens when we leave the cable plugged to the wall for long periods of time and also if the unit was plugged for a long time the battery might have burnt. the solution wold be to verify that the battery and the charger are working properly, try that and good luck!

PSP won't turn on


You can try a hard reset. Do this hold the power switch in the upward position for over 10 seconds. This will cause the machine to reboot. Leave it alone for a few minutes then try switching it back on. You may have to flick the switch on twice to start her up again. If it still has a hard time try changing the battery for the one in your sons machine. MAKE SURE that all apps etc are closed on the PSP first and do the hard reset BEFORE you remove the battery on BOTH machines. Ensure PSP is OFF before removing battery. It is possible the battery has been overcharged or just given up. If the console operates with the other battery you know you need get a fresh one. Consider getting a high power one for extended life. Let us know how you get on. May have more info for you.
