Sony PSP not charging

HI, ive just been refered to this site hope you can help. My psp is not charging, sony recomended buying a new battery, that didnt work then i bought a new charger which failed as well. Also its not bricked because it works fine with my friends charged battery and both my batterys charge in his psp but not mine. I think the main problem stemmed from pluging it into a charger adapter set at 12v (stupid i know) ..could be wrong I think i was on firmware 2.7 if that matters Any help would be fantastic... Tom

My psp doesnt turn on.when i charge my psp the orange light turns on but when i try to turn it on it still doesnt turn on

the most likely cause is that your battery is fried and cannot hold a charge. i know that the psp slims are a fairly old model and this is a highly likely possibility so i recomend purchasing a new battery from the sony store or from Sony's website

Tell me how can i download comletely free psp game

You need custom Frimware, and a pandora battery and magic memory stick, i suggest buying these, but if your a handiman you gotta
Pandora battery: (dont recomend doing youself) You have to get a normal psp battery, then you have to open it up, And cut a tiny wire on the black chip piece

Magic Memory Stick: Watch that video After the pandora battery,

Game itself:You have to find a site that lets you download the games

Getting Game from pc to psp: You have to make a folder called GAME (all capitals in the psp file in your psp)
Now, you have to get the game and put it into the GAME folder inside the Psp folder in the psp

Get psp to connect to computer: go to your psp put a usb connecting the psp to the computer, and go to usb mode on your psp

Have a nice day ^^

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.

Psp doesn't charge or open at all, nor any indicative signs

I would think that would be battery problem. Did you buy the PSP new or used?
If used I would buy a new battery and try that. If new reurn it or send it back to sony.

My psp battery loses power "quickly" and charges very slow....

How old is your battery? You may want to think about buying a new one as it may be on it's way out. Even if it is fairly new you might have a lemon of a battery. It happens at times. IF your psp is new and your battery is doing this you should contact sony and see if they can replace your battery for free or a nominal charge.
