Re: We have a psp that wont turn on.
You probably blew a fuse undo 4 black screws (2 underneath the warrantee sticker under the battery) and the chrome screw bottom side of case take of the face lay down flat and up the top to the left you will see f60012.5get a lend of a multimeter and check for continuity they are a 2.5 amp fuse very small if you have a aftermarket power supply that probably blew it dont use again if you have good luck
You may have bricked your psp if you updated it and while it was updateing you turned it off if you did this then the only way to fix it is if you used a pandora battery or take it to sony to get it fixed (not cheap)

Probably, either the battery or the charger is busted. Try borrowing a friend's PSP charger and plug it in. The power led of the PSP should turn orange when charging. If it still does not charge, you might need to replace the battery.
Try a different outlet in the wall, it might be the outlet. If it isn't
the outlet, maybe it's the power cord. Try to use someone else's PSP charger and see if it works. If it If it's not
that, then it's your PSP. If you had it since launch then it will cost $90 to get fixed.
You either have a bad battery, or a bad power supply that charges the unit (power cord). If you have a friend that also has a PSP, try swapping out the battery to see if that works, and or try another power cord to see if the charging indicator light comes on. I think that possibly your battery is dead and the power cord might be bad. You can find good deals for both the battery and cord on ebay. Good luck!
u cant charge on a computer unless you have a charger that hooks up to it...are you sure your using a charger or are you using the cord that transfers data to ur psp! the data cord will not charge ur psp its not a charger all it does is transfer data sorry you need a charger for the psp not a data cable
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: 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.
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.
If it won't charge and wont power up then same thing happened to me. If you are willing to open up your psp there is a video on youtube that can show you whats wrong. The cable that connects the buttons on the right side most likely disconnected from the main board and the right side of the psp including the buttons, the power switch and the top right trigger won't respond. When you try to turn on the psp and when its charging if the light won't come on then you might have this problem.
