first check the power cable if its properly plugin, and check if ac to dc adaptor has a output power. you can check it by using digital voltmeter or an analog multimeter, you can see the pin output in the back of the adaptor, it has positive and negative sign.
You could try another battery.But if another battery doesn't work,sorry mate I think it's dead.In future make sure you only use what you know is compatible,also NEVER try to run the PSP with the AC adaptor without the battery in.The PSP safety and support booklet states: Do not use the PSP system with the AC Adaptor when the Battery Pack is not inserted in the system.If the AC Adaptor is disconnected suddenly,it may result in damage to the system.
If it is the motherboard that's burnt out I think you can replace it but they're expensive I think,I saw one for a PSP1000 for
Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.
Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.
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: 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.
