I have a psp and i dont know if the psp is broken or is it my charger or battery please help sony model psp-110 battery pack 3.6

Hello there,

When you charge the PSP, does the charging light indicator at he lower right corner lights up as red? If not, then the battery is not being charged at all. But if it does lights up but does not power up the PSP, then the first this to troubleshoot this problem is put in another battery pack. If it powers up, then your battery needs to be changed.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

My psp doesnt turn on anymore

Batteries lose their capability to charge to their highest capacity after each charge. I would reccomend a new battery.

The key means youre psp is locked, swith the power button to the middle (when its down, the psp is locked) if its not down, theres a problem with your power button and it needs to be replaced.

Switching on my psp after charging it

Please mention after switching on the PSP power LED turns on or not? ================================================= Suppose without connecting the charger when you power on your PSP you will see green light and you will get sound clear with no display at all and after 1 min: PSP will turn off automatically. then 99% it means that your PSP is bricked.
