PSP 3001 brand new wont charge!! Help Please!!


It sounds like you need a replacement part. If you just got it for Christmas, I would take it back to the store where purchased. If not, I would redeem my warranty, and send it to Sony. If you can't do either of those, then you will have to buy this part:

PSP powers up, black screen, no sound


It could be, although if it hasn't been modified in anyway it could be the battery. If your son has used this battery so many times, say a couple months or years, the motherboard or chip could malfunction, causing shortage of power. Try getting a replaceable battery, or if you know another friend or guy that has a son/daughter with an extra battery try using it to save money. If it's not the battery, could be the firmware, or version. Hope these solutions help, let me know if they do or don't.
Good Luck!

Blank screen


Try pressing the START+ L + R to see if it resets the game.

If it does not, your PSP may be Semi-Bricked. Write me back if your PSP is Semi-bricked and needs to be restored.
