Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

PSP won't turn on

PSP worked fine and then one day after charging it started up and would immediately shut down. Now when you plug it in nothing happens...no green light or anything. I tried using my younger sons charger and battery since i thought this could be the problem and still nothing (the battery and charger work fine on my younger sons). Any suggestions? Sue

    Now that I have gotten the Psp to work my son turned it on the other day and 1/2 the screen was black and it has lines in it. What is up with that? Any help?

Also, there is a chance it's just a loose connection to the LCD. If a few pins aren't connecting, it can mess up part of the screen like that. More likely it's what Inky said though.

You can try a hard reset. Do this hold the power switch in the upward position for over 10 seconds. This will cause the machine to reboot. Leave it alone for a few minutes then try switching it back on. You may have to flick the switch on twice to start her up again. If it still has a hard time try changing the battery for the one in your sons machine. MAKE SURE that all apps etc are closed on the PSP first and do the hard reset BEFORE you remove the battery on BOTH machines. Ensure PSP is OFF before removing battery. It is possible the battery has been overcharged or just given up. If the console operates with the other battery you know you need get a fresh one. Consider getting a high power one for extended life. Let us know how you get on. May have more info for you.

    Sorry for the long delay - I was off on holiday

    Sounds like it could have a problem with the power distribution board. It's a small PCB where the switch mounts. Or it could be the board that controls the LCD. Either way I suggest you get a repair center to have a look at it.

    Switch board is approx £5.00 and fuse for the LCD backlight is a bit less. The board for the LCD is a good bit more expensive if needed. Labour will be added.

I plug in to AC charge for the whole day and try to turnon, with switch on the right hand side, nothing happened


On the occasion it won't chrage the PSP. You should double check that it is charging it. Also, try to see if it'll turn on while plugged in. If it turns on, let it charge, if it doesn't either the battery is shot or the plug-in spot is broken or not responsive.

Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

Sounds like the battery is charged fully. If you know someone else who has another psp, try putting the battery into his/hers and see if it starts up. If so, your psp may have been fried. There is not much you can do.

Battery appears charged, but computer will only run when plugged in


does your battery have one of those charge indicator panels on bottom?

also, it's possible that the connection from battery to the internals is shot..if that's the case, then you're looking at a major motherboard swap

Check to make sure the battery is charged. If the battery is low or almost out, it'll start & shut off like this.
