If the SP is old the light will have dimed slightly or if it was droped the light may have been damaged or it is a porwer problem.

try pluging the SP to its charger (while its in the wall of course) and see if that works. If not there isnt much you can do beyond buying a new SP if it is that bothersom.

I hope this helps!

My sp will not charge, I am not sure if it is the battery or something else


Game Boy Advance SP - Charging Light Won't Display If the orange-colored charge light on your Game Boy Advance SP is no longer coming on when the A/C Adapter is connected to your system, please use the following troubleshooting steps.
    Troubleshooting Steps:
    1. Make Sure the Game Boy Advance SP Isn't Already Fully Charged
      If the battery is already fully charged, the light will not display when the system is plugged into the AC Adapter. Play a game without using the AC Adapter for at least 10-15 minutes, then plug the AC Adapter in, to see if the light comes on. If it does come on, the battery was fully charged. If the light still does not come on, see Step 2.


    2. Make Sure the Outlet You Are Using Works
      Plugging another electrical device into the outlet is a good way to check if the outlet works, or that the outlet you are using is not controlled by a nearby light switch. You may also want to try a different outlet.


    3. Try a Different Licensed AC Adapter
      If the charging light doesn't display, try a different AC Adapter, if possible, to determine if perhaps the problem is with the adapter.

      • If a different AC Adapter works, you will need to get a replacement AC Adapter from our Online Store, or by calling our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700.
      • If a different AC Adapter doesn't work, or if a replacement AC Adapter is not available and the lights will not display, we recommend having your Game Boy Advance SP repaired. Check out our convenient repair options.


    Note: Please be sure to include both the Game Boy Advance SP and the AC Adapter with any repair

Hi i have a Gameboy color and 1 advanced and they both have problems with the lcd screen it's so dark hard to se what's going on on it :) what's wrong ? can anyone help


you either play them under direct (sun) light or attach some kind of external light like a worm light for a game boy color/advance, but the light isn't evenly distributed. i have a halo light for my gb advance--better than nothing.
game boy advance sp has a front lit screen.
GameStop sells game boy advance sp for $40.
hope this helped some

Screen seems to be too birght


It could be the mother board or more likley the battery pack is starting to wear out.
I would suggest trying the playstation support website:
http://uk.playstation.com/help-support/psp/
If you can't find anything there than try buying a new battery pack.

GBA SP backlight off.


The SP has a small circular button near the display when the clamshell is opened. That controls the power to the backlight. Have you tried pressing that?
