Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

My PSP won't turn on, more details inside.

Would anyone mind helping me to see what's wrong with my psp? One night I was playing it and I turned it off for the night, nothing strange happened. The next morning it wouldn't turn on, so I plugged it in and left for whatever. I came back the same day, and it still wouldn't turn on, even whilst plugged in.

The green light showing that it turns on won't come on, but the yellow showing it is charging will. The thing is, I let my friend borrow it, and he said that my battery was completely dead, and even his battery (fully charged) wouldn't turn my psp on.

I have a version 1001 phat, and I'm out of warranty. I don't feel like giving Sony ANOTHER 90 dollars to fix it, and it's been opened once or twice, for various reasons, none of which pertaining to this.

I've come to the conclusion that I should either buy a more recent model of psp, used or not, or fix my own for about the same price.

If I decide to buy a new one, I would be willing to sell my old one for parts either on Ebay, or to anyone here, if they''d be willing to buy.

Think you can help?

Hi My PSP's orange ligth won't turn off just always lightning when turn on my psp it's lightning with green light


Hi khangal74,
If you dont have issues playing your usual psp games, you dont have to worry about the orange light. That is normal. It means that your PSP is saving the data to your memory stick. Also make sure that your WLan switch is turned off ( that also causes a blinking orange light ). However, if you are experiencing a flickering orange light and your screen remains black ( and you cannot play any games), it means that your PSP is having issues reading you memory card.
Do these:
Remove the memory card and turn your PSP on without the memory card (it should turn on with no problems) Now, slowly re-insert your Memory stick. (You may need to do this several times until your PSP recognizes your memory card) If this still does not work, your Memory stick is busted or may be infected with a virus and therefore needs to be replaced.
Wishing you with positive results. All the best to you.

Hello fellow gamer :)

It sounds like your PSP may be damaged or the battery is not taking a full charge. If possible, can you try using an alternate battery? If this does not work, you may want to contact Sony for technical assistance.

I have seen PSP updates brick a PSP before and it has to be reset or fixed by Sony.

If it is under warranty I recommend calling them.

I was playing my psp all day, then i charged it at themorning and at the evening, when i charged it during at night, it blacked out, when i try to open it, i does'nt open. what is the problem in my psp?


Err open it do you mean turning it on?You probably were playing on it for too long,also there are some chargers that burn the battery out if you don't keep an eye on them.If it won't turn on now I don't know what you can do to correct it.I used to play on my PSP about 8 hours a day but stopped (mainly because there is hardly anyone left playing Mpo ).

Replace the AC adapter. it may haved taken a surge over night. If this does fix the problem then the powerborad needs to be replaced. Your parts can be ordered from risingsonltd.com

No menu


Try removing the UMD media and then turning on the PSP. This is because when there is a UMD in, It wants to at least know whats in, and most likely, your UMD drive or your UMD disc is damaged.

My PSP wont read my battery


Try putting it in a bag of rice for a day or so, because rice absorbs moisture, so it might draw out any water still inside. Hope this helps.

Psp won't play all games


Have it sent in to the repair shop. I suspect the UMD drive has problems, because the clicking sound should NOT be there, only a whirring sound.

PSP wont play games


To play game on your memory stick you'll need Custom Firmware installed such as M33/OE on your PSP, else if you play a UMD. The last CFw Update is 3.71M33-3.

What is version on your PSP? (on PSP Menu, move across to the "Settings Menu". Scroll down, select to "System Settings" > "System Information" and you should see version of your PSP.)

Here's, how to install CFw Guides. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back a detail should you need additional information. ^_^
