I need to know if the power source could be the problem. I already replaced the battery and it worked fine for a week, and then died. I already took it apart once and fixed the dpad, so that's not a p


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 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)

Psp is not charging


  • Make sure the AC adaptor is properly inserted in the PSP system and that the AC power cord is properly inserted in a working electrical outlet.

  • Make sure the AC adaptor for this product is being used.

  • Make sure the AC adaptor is clean. If not, wipe it with a dry, soft cloth.

  • 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.

  • If you are charging the battery pack in an extremely cold location, it might take longer to charge.

  • There might be a problem with the battery pack. For the PSP system, try using a replacement battery pack of the same type. For the PSPgo, the battery is built-in, you may need to send your system in for service.

    Connect a USB Cable.


    do a full power off on the PSP, ie hold the power button for 5 seconds until it properly turns off. a short slide of the power button only puts it in standby mode.

    also (on the PSP) check under Settings > USB Auto Connect (ON) - ensure this is enabled. makes it easy to connect USB with this turned on. but you need an up to date firmware on the PSP for this setting.

    still no go?
    try and restart the computer and plug the PSP back in once you have your desktop up.

    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.

    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
