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!

Psp does not work


UMD drive may have broke during the fall. Unless you can find a replacement and disassemble the psp (which is difficult and very fragile) i would not mess with it.

Psp battery


A local electronic shop will be able to repair that very easily....Or if you have the tools then resolder a new set of pins by opening up the PSP.

PSP was dropped it will not turn on unless plugged into wall. After plugged in wall you can start playing a game but within a couple of minutes it shuts off. Please help.


You most likely have internal damage to the system from the fall. You may have broken the internal fan that cools the system during gameplay and that is why it is shutting off minutes after use. I recommend calling Sony to see if you are still under a warranty. It may be cheaper to have it replaced than to have it fixed.

I hope I was able to fixya problem and Happy Gaming!

Psp


This can by caused by one or more of the following conditions:

1- The device was dropped and the sensitive laser assembly broke. Get a new PSP.

2- The laser assembly is dirty. Clean it gently with a cotton swab and some isopropyl.

3- The games are dirty. Gently spin them and wipe with a soft cloth.

Try to charge your PSP with your son's PSP charger and your problem should be solved if so your PSP charger is faulty.
