I HAVE AN OCTOBER 2008 XBOX AND A 150W 12.1 AMP POWERBRICK FROM A NEWISH XBOX . PLUG ON POWERBRICK WILL NOT FIT SOCKET ON XBOX


The power cords for the Xbox 360 and the Xbox 360 slim have different shaped plugs. If the plug you are using is not fitting it is likely that you have purchased the incorrect cord. If this is the case you will need to purchase a new cord.
When you purchase your new power cord make sure that it is designed for the original Xbox 360 NOT the Xbox 360 slim.

    My psp suddenly stopped working and will not charge wont turn on at all


    Hi Rneal_99,
    If your PSP suddenly stopped, check if the battery cover is fitted snugly because if it is loose even by just a bit, you will have charging issues and you will not be able to turn it on because the battery should be seated properly inside the battery slot. I had the same problem because my battery cover had a small crack which made it a bit loose. I was supposed to get a new battery cover but I was able to resolve the issue by using a piece of paper as a padding for the battery just to get a snug fit. It worked for me, I hope it works for you too.
    Other things to check :
    1. Is the battery dead (does not have charging capabilities anymore)? You can isolate this problem by using a different battery module. You can ask your friends to lend you their PSP2000 battery just for testing purposes. Inversely, ask them to use your battery with their PSP2000. See if they will have the same problem.
    2. Is the Charging Adapter broken ? Same trick here as with the battery, use your friends Charging adapter and vice-versa. Checking on these three things should isolate the cause of the problem.

    If the battery is busted and does not have any charging capabilities anymore, you need to replace it. If the Charging Adapter is the culprit, you should go to a professional to have it fixed. But, if both your battery and your Charger are working properly, chances are the problem lies internally. Specifically the Power switch, the Power Socket Connection module and maybe even the PSP's power supply module. You should seek professional help in these cases because these problems are quite challenging to fix even with the proper tools and the proper skill set. However, if the unit is still under warranty, Sony should cover this. You can call them at 800-345-7669. I hope I was able to help. All the best to you.

    How to fix psp to charge it agian?


    Hi Ynnaalbasin,
    If your PSP is not charging at all, you initially have to check on three things :
    1. Is the battery seated properly in the battery slot? Also check if the battery cover is fitted snugly because if it is loose even by just a bit, you will have charging issues.
    2. Is the battery dead (does not have charging capabilities anymore)? You can isolate this problem by using a different battery module. You can ask your friends to lend you their PSP2000 battery just for testing purposes. Inversely, ask them to use your battery with their PSP2000. See if they will have the same problem.
    3. Is the Charging Adapter broken ? Same trick here as with the battery, use your friends Charging adapter and vice-versa. Checking on these three things should isolate the cause of the problem.

    My psp wont turn on!


  • Hi! TRY THESE TO SEE IF WE CAN GET YOU POWERED UP! :)



    Confirm the system is not in HOLD mode

    Make sure the PSP system is not in Hold Mode (in the down position). Slide the Power/Hold switch up to clear Hold Mode. Or try sliding the Power/Hold switch up and holding it there until the power indicator light turns off and the PSP system is completely turned off. Then try turning the PSP on again.

    • Confirm the backlight is ON
      Make sure the LCD screen's backlight is not turned off. If it is, press any button to turn ON the backlight.

    • Confirm use of only licensed products (AC Adaptor, battery pack and charger)
      The AC Adaptor, battery pack and battery charger must be licensed for use with the PSP system. All licensed products for use with the PSP will have the following logos displayed directly on the product and/or the packaging:
      pslogor.gif global_logos_psplogo_168x35.jpg global_logos_scealogowhite_60x73.gif
      If any of the products you are using does not have these logos on them, we recommend that you immediately discontinue the use of these products, as they void the PSP system's warranty, and can cause damage to the system. See compatible peripherals for the PSP system for a full list of supported products.
      There are some products that can be used with the PSP system that may not display our logos. Products such as San Disk 1GB Memory Sticks, or various USB cables, needs only to be genuinely certified. Look for the genuine certified logos on these products or contact the company which manufactures these products for more information.

    • Confirm the battery pack is correctly inserted
      Make sure the battery pack is in its proper position (see inserting the battery pack for details).

    • Try the battery pack only
      Unplug the AC adaptor from the PSP system. Make sure a charged PSP battery pack is inserted inside the PSP system. Turn on the unit. If you get power, then the problem may be with the AC adaptor and power cord.

    • Try the battery pack in a different PSP system
      If possible, try your PSP battery pack in a different PSP system. If your battery works on a different PSP system, it may indicate an issue with your PSP system.

    • Try a different PSP battery pack
      If possible, try a different battery in your PSP system. If a different battery pack does work on your PSP system, it may indicate an issue with the original battery pack.

    • Try the AC adaptor and the PSP battery pack
      Insert the battery pack and plug in the AC adaptor. If you still do not get any power, your PSP system may need to be sent in for service (see PSP Service for details).

    • Try the AC adaptor / power cord only
      Turn off the PSP system, unplug the AC adaptor, and remove the battery. Now plug in the AC adaptor to the PSP system with the battery removed. Confirm the AC adaptor and power cord are firmly connected to each other. Now make sure they are also firmly connected to the PSP system and the electrical outlet.
      If the PSP system powers on, the battery may need to be replaced.

    • Check AC adaptor and power cord for damage
      Visually inspect the AC adaptor and the power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.

    • Check the electrical outlet
      Confirm the electrical outlet that you are using is active (receiving power). Try using a different electrical outlet.

    • Try a different AC adaptor and power cord
      If possible, try a different AC adaptor and power cord. If a different AC adaptor and power cord does not work, the PSP system may need to be sent in for service (see PSP Service for details).

    • Confirm no unauthorized system software or downloads were used
      Confirm that you have not used any unauthorized system software updates or downloads on the PSP system. Use of such unauthorized firmware updates voids the warranty and can damage the PSP system.

    • WLAN turned off
      Make sure the wireless (WLAN) network function is not in use while charging. The battery pack cannot be recharged when the WLAN function is being used.

    • Power surge
      If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PSP system's power supply. Please contact Consumer Services below for information.
