Hi there, I am assuming that it was working ok until you tried to charge it then?? I have come across this problem before and you are right about the fuse, there is a fuse on the charge/power circuit that is located in the very top right hand corner of the motherboard, next to where the black power lead attaches to the motherboard - if you repair or bridge that fuse then it will work fine assuming that like I said at the begining it was working before you put the wrong charger in. If you cannot repair that fuse then the console will work fine if you can charge the battery without using that PSP (i.e. another psp or third party external charger) as there is no fuse on the battery circuit as there would not be a surge in power unlike the mains circuit. If you need more information or if this reply is not clear then let me know and I'll get an image of the fuse you need to repair.

Brand new tablet will not turn on

Make sure it is fully charged. Hold power button down for about 10 seconds and wait if nothing comes up press power again for half a second. Still nothing? Then put it on charge, it should show that it is charging with a light of a picture on the screen. If there is no sign of charging, wait about 3 hours leave the charger connected and press the power button again for about a second and wait for it to turn on or for the picture to show it is charging appears on the screen, (make sure the charger is on and connected) . Press the power button again for another 5 seconds and wait. sometimes it takes a little while to turn on, especially if the battery is very flat. Other things to try are check the charger on another device e.g. another table or a phone if you can and try another charger on the tablet if they are compatible, (usually the same plug is o.k, check the voltage is the same. most chargers are USB 5v). It may need a more powerful charger than most small phones,. you can try plugging the USB cable into a car charger or USB 3.0 port on a computer. 2 amps is common for most tablets. Apple may be different, hard to be exact without knowing brand etc.
If all else fails see the retailer

How to charge it

Hi Stacey
How to charge "what model" Cell Phone

iPhone & others usually charge from the USB cable that it comes with.
Plug into any USB port (5v DC)
Some chargers supply more current which can give a faster charge. iPad chargers supply 2A where as iPhone chargers are 1A

I dont have my chrager and my phone is dead

You can charge the battery of your iPhone by connecting it to a USB-port of a computer.
If you're on the road, try a gas station with a shop and look if they sell alternative USB or car chargers for your iPhone. A USB charger will always have an output of 5 volt (5V) but the current must be minimum 1 ampere or 1000 mili Ampere (1A or 1000mA).
When you see a charger with (5V/500mA) it will not work.
-(5V/1A) = OK
-(5V/2,2A) = OK
-(5V/1000mA) = OK
-(5V/2500mA) = OK

Where to get in car charger for evesham 7211

I just bought an in-car charger for the 7211 on ebay.
It is 5v with a 2amp flow.
It's not for the mini-USB port on the side but for the dc input hole on the other side.
I've just plugged it into my laptop via the mini-USB port to see if it will charge that way but it doesn't seem to be doing.
Hope this helps.

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).

Chargind psp

If it’s the 2000 series (PSP Slim), then yes. Connect your PSP system to an available USB port on your computer. Turn on your PSP, then under “Settings“, select “USB Connection”. Your PSP should connect to your computer and start charging. It may take awhile, but it will charge it all the way. Hold the display button (The button with the rectangular shape at the bottom of your PSP) until the screen goes black. This will speed up the charging process and is a good method of prolonging battery life when listening to music or other things.

If that doesn’t work, try looking for an adapter lying around your house that matches the volt numbers. The PSP takes 5V. Most portable CD players use 5V adapters and are usually the same size as needed for the PSP. I suggest using an adapter that matches the volt number and fits without trouble. If the orange light doesn’t come on or the PSP acts weird after charging, I’d stop using the adapter. Ask me any questions if you have any. ;)
