    1. My son's PSP has the same problem. He can plug it in but it does not charge. Actually, I'm not sure that the power plug is even plugging in properly. The battery is ok cause he can charge it in his brother's PSP.

As far as linloo goes the connector (the yellow part on your psp) sounds like it's going bad or it is bad. You can find it on the net for repair and should cost more than $4-7.

Do you have access to another psp? Okay so you say you have tried plugging it into different outlets. It could be the adapter (charger might be bad) But the only way to test this is to put your charger on another psp to see if it charges. And vise versa with the other person charger on your psp.

And just in case you may want to check the battery and or the conector. By doing the same method I just said.

My PSP won't charge,I mistakenly used a different charger yesterday,my HP notebook charger,when I tried the charger for my PSP there's no orange light, USB connection to the PC doesn't work...


I'm afraid it already burned the boards.But, I hope that you're lucky, maybe the special fuse on the board save your PSP, you can fix it by finding the service center.
The problems start because of the voltage of your notebook charger too high for the PSP.

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.


Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

Psp 3000 doesnt want to charge


More than likely your charger is broken. If the charger has any lights on it, see if they turn on when the charger is plugged into an outlet. If the lights don't turn on, try another outlet. If the lights still won't come on, you need a new charger.

If the lights work, or your charger doesn't have any try using a different charger and see if the PSP will charge. If not, then the actual connection within your PSP is shot, or there was a short in your system.

My sony psp go wont charge...


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.

I cant charg my psp i cant find my charger


When you say you can't cahrge it, do you mean on your PC, PS3 or with the charger? I don't think the PS3 charges the PSP, I have no idea about the PC, but if the PSP doesn't charge using it's charger, it is either the battery, the charger, or the psp charger outlet. If it is the battery, buy a new one. If it is the charger outlet, it is a good idea to have 2 working batteries and to buy an external charger at game crazy, game stop, or from sony. This way, you can switch out batteries while playing, like me :). If it is the charger, buy a new one.
I would suggest first trying to buy a new battery. If it works, you are good to go and your old battery was broken, otherwise your charger/ charger outlet is broken. Buy an external charger. Then, you will be able to charge the batteries while one is in the PSP.
A new battery and an external charger cost about $70, but it is worth it. I hope i helped.

PSP chager


Try a different outlet in the wall, it might be the outlet, if it isn't the outlet, maybe it's the power cord or the battery. If it's not that, then it's your PSP. You'll have to send it to sony for a new one if you want it replaced and if youve had it for over year you're going to have to pay $90. ------The fact that it turns off when the USB DC-in is connected and that it will not power up without the battery lead me to think that either the USB charging cable is just not supplying enough amps to run the psp standalone nor charge the battery very quickly, or something is odd in the PSP itself. I'm guessing when you plug something into the DC-in socket and it detects 5V then it switches to that as a source, if the USB cant supply the current it wants then it shuts down (just a guess).

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.
