This could be due to a faulty charging cable, a burnt-out battery or the interference of software you have downloaded. Solve these problems by testing your PSP to locate the charging problem and proceed to implement the correct solution.

Instructions
Revert to Factory Settings

1 Switch the WLAN button on your PSP so that it is in the "Off" position. Remove any memory stick or UMD that is in the system and put them aside.

2 Choose "Settings " from the left side of the cross media bar. Scroll to "Restore Default Settings." Press "X" to enter this menu. Press "X" to accept the restoration. The PSP will then revert back to its original settings.

3 Power off the PSP and plug it into an outlet with the AC adapter to charge for three hours. Power on the system to see if if the charging issue has been resolved.

USB Charging

4 Power on your PSP and scroll to the far left of the cross media bar. Choose "System Settings" and press "X." Scroll down the System Settings menu until you reach the option for "USB Charge." Press "X" and switch the setting to "On."

5 Return to the "System Settings" menu and choose "USB Auto Connect." Make sure the Auto Connect setting has been turned on. This allows your PSP to enter USB mode and begin charging whenever it is connected to another device.

6 Connect the PSP to a powered on PS3 or PC using the USB connector cable. The small end fits into the top of your PSP while the large end is inserted into a USB slot in your chosen system. The PSP will automatically enter USB mode as soon as it is connected.

7 Leave the PSP attached to the system for 30 minutes to an hour. When you detach your PSP, check your battery power. If it has gone up, then the charging problem is with your AC adapter. You can replace it or continue to use the USB charge function.

Battery

8 Plug your PSP into an outlet using the AC adapter cable and power on the system.

9 Enter the "System Settings Menu." Scroll down until you reach "Battery Information." Press "X" to open the menu.

10 Check the last option on the page which is labeled "Battery Status." If the status does not say "Charging," then the battery is not receiving a charge from the cable. While your PSP is getting power from the cable, you will need to purchase a new battery.

My dell pa 12 won?t start ?


When i start my dell pa 12up and it takes 10 mins to load to windows XP, , when the windowsloading screen comes up the FANS go crazy. I then wait till i’m at thedesktop at which point i immediately shut down the pa 12(which takes afurther 7 mins) while the FANs are going crazy.

answer :

Now if i start the pa 12 again it works normally.

I had to do this procedure everyday, untill today when i switched the pa 12 on, waited till the desktop appaered and i removed the battery while the pa 12 was on..
17028ca.jpg
Now when i switch the pa 12 on it powers up but i’m not getting anything on the screen

First try a different AC adapter (such as :pa 10 ac adapter)

If no change then the issue is the motherboard. Often the AC adapter will fail then the battery discharges and you get the symptoms youdescribe.
SO AC adapter then MB

It shows no power on your laptop but it shows you the dvd player led comes on then off.

I would suggest try the following:

1. Remove laptop battery, optical drive, hard drive and ram. Remove external peripherals as well.

2. Make sure AC Adapter is not yet connected to the laptop. Pressand hold on the laptop’s power button for 10 seconds to drain the powerflea.

3. Connect the AC Adapter to a known good power outlet, check ACAdapter power LED if it is on. Try to sense if AC Adapter is not makinga bit of noise when it is plugin to the wall power outlet.

4. Connect now the AC Adapter (hp dv6000 ac adapter)tothe laptop. Check if AC Adapter LED stays on when it is connected tothe laptop. If the LED stays on means the AC Adapter is fine. If the ACAdapter LED turned off check the AC Adapter pin that goes to the laptopAC socket if it is loose.

5. If laptop AC Adapter stays on after connecting to the laptop try topower on laptop. If no power LED comes on then this is motherboardproblem.

6. Before replacing the motherboard there is one checking needs todo. If you can open your laptop bottom part then good, do this whenlaptop is not connected to any power source. Try to reseat the laptopCMOS battery then try to power on laptop after, if still fails thenreplace motherboard. I hope this helps.

My wii won't turn on


Wii Console Won't Turn On, and Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The Wii console won't power on, and the Power LED is unlit
  • The console powers on, but shuts off after a few seconds/minutes
  • Attaching an accessory to the console turns the power off

Information:
This issue can be caused by an accessory or power surge tripping the circuit breaker on the AC Adapter.

What To Do:
  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.

  • Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.

  • Perform an AC Adapter Reset. (How To)

Dell Inspiron 1521 battery not charging


Laptop batteries power a laptop when it is not connected to an electrical outlet. If the laptop battery fails to charge when the laptop is plugged into an electrical outlet, the battery is likely dead and needs to be replaced. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a dead battery. However, while a dead battery is the likely cause, it is not the only cause. The AC adapter may be broken, in which case the battery won't charge, or the battery contacts may be dirty and need cleaning. Prior to replacing the battery, perform simple tasks to ensure a dead battery is the cause of the problems.

1.Power down the laptop. Gently pull the AC adapter from the side of the laptop for removal.

2.Place the laptop in front of you, bottom side up. Locate the battery release mechanism. This can be a button that slides or needs to be pushed to unlock or release the laptop battery from the housing unit. Press or slide the mechanism. Slide or lift the battery from the battery bay for removal.

3.Insert the AC adapter into the side of the laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not power on, ensure the AC adapter is securely plugged into a working electrical outlet. If the electrical outlet is working and the laptop won't power on, the AC adapter is not properly working and needs to be replaced. Remove the AC adapter.

4.Dip a cotton swab in a small amount of rubbing alcohol. The cotton swab should be damp, not dripping wet. Lightly rub the dampened cotton swab onto the battery contacts and battery bay contacts to remove dust, buildup and grime. Allow the contacts to air dry.

5.Align the battery over the battery bay. Either press or slide into place. A clicking or snapping noise produced from the locking mechanism will confirm the laptop battery is securely locked into place.

6.Install the AC adapter. Allow the AC adapter to fully charge the battery for 8 hours.

7.Remove the AC adapter. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not power on, the battery needs to be replaced.

  • 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.

    PSP Will not start


    Hi,

    What hapenned to all your PSP's is that they 'bricked'. When your PSP is installing an update and you interrupt the process, the data where the PSP's operating system (=firmware) is stored got corrupted (=broken). In very rare cases this can happen when you play a game and something goes wrong due that game. When your PSP is bricked the green lamp is on but the screen stays black.

    Now straight to the point..The solutions:

    1.If your PSP 'bricked' because you interrupted a system update (Powered off while updating, canceling update..), then you can only help it by re-installing the firmware correctly. NOTE: This is unsupported by Sony and is something you do on your own risk, for a usual PSP user it is a complicated process and i suggest you should let someone with experience do it. If you still want to attempt it, for example here's a tutorial for making a 'pandora battery' : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKFnuCfTPZo
    To find more information about this subject you could seach on google for tags like 'psp pandora mod custom firmware jigkick'

    2. If your PSP suddenly doesn't start up after or while you played a game, then you have a chance that you can recover your PSP without too much hassle. Simply let your battery run empty. After it's empty, remove the battery and let your PSP 'rest' a day without battery. After that, reinsert the battery, first fully charge it, and THEN start your PSP up (after your battery is fully recharged). If you have luck you might have your PSP working again.

    3. Contact Sony and explain the situation. Explain that you did nothing wrong. If your PSP is still under warranty they should help you..

    Good luck and if i helped you please leave feedback! Thanks

    Follow the steps below to determine whether the problem is related to the AC adapter or your notebook system board:
    1. Remove the battery and disconnect all external devices from the computer.
    2. Hold the Power button for several seconds, with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems.
    3. Connect the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the other end into the computer.
    4. Press the Power button .
    5. Is the Power indicator light (LED) on or off?
    ****If notebook power indicator light (LED) is on, the AC adapter is working correctly***
    If the power indicator LED is off, the AC power adapter may need to be replaced. To determine if the AC power adapter needs to be replaced follow the steps below:
    1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged directly into a known working wall outlet.
      NOTE: To check the wall outlet, plug in a different known working device like a light, radio etc.
    2. Check all of the following connections:
      • The connection from the AC adapter to the wall outlet.
      • The connection into the power adapter from the wall outlet.
      • The connection from the AC adapter to the notebook.
    3. Press the power button again to test the notebook PC.
    4. If the power indicator does not turn on, remove the AC power adapter from the notebook PC and re-insert the battery. Then press the power button. If the power indicator light still does not turn on, then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.
    *****Reseating the RAM may resolve this issue.****
    Step 1 - Remove the battery
    1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
    2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
    Step 2 - Remove the memory module
    1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
    2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
    3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
    4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
    5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
    6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
    Step 3 - Replace the battery
    1. Insert the battery into the notebook.
    2. Push the battery into the base enclosure until you hear a click.
    3. Connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.
    fter the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook. If the notebook boots normally and the Windows desktop appears no further action is needed. If this problem re-occurs often, contact an HP Support Specialist to schedule a repair.
