    My PSP will not turn on. Even when I have it connected to the charger and pluged in. Neither the orange or green light will come on. I have tried cleaning the battery connectors with alcohol, but that did not work. I even tried pressing the R button and power on at the same time; that did not work either. Any suggestions?

    I have a problem with my psp it works with the adapter in but doesnt work with it out.

    When I put the unit on charge the orange light comes on and minutes later goes off as if the unit has full charge.

Hi Gohan102,

 

Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....

Check this out, I dropped mine in water today and It worked. I left it out with the umd open while I went somewhere, but when I came back an orange light was showing and the psp wouldn't do anything. I searched a bunch of sites for solutions (including this one) I couldn't get nothing, so I checked out a you tube vid here and took the thing apart just past the metal thing behind the screen. I dried the water off and put it back together. Now the games and sound will turn on, but the screen doesn't show right and only the left button works now (I can hear the clank sfx when I press it in the main menu). I'm gonna open it back up to see what wires I left loose, but tonight I'm going to sleep.

I have an Acer 6920 and just yesterday I went to go turn it on with the power supply plugged in and connected to the outlet and the light near the power button flashed orange and my laptop wont turn on....


Sounds like a malfunction in your power supply. I would suggest contacting Acer support and informing yourself about the warranty on your device.

Psp wont charge, no usb. battery empty after last game.


believe it or not, if the psp works you can play it with out a battery using thee charger. Try that and see if it works at all. If it does then you may need to replace your battery, or leav it and let it charge for about 5-6 hours.

If it's 4 months old and it does not work at all you should still be under your manufacturer's warranty.

Sound like a major hardware problem. Check on your warranty and see if it's covered. Otherwise you might be out of luck.
