My PSP doesn't turn on, when I move the switch the green light just flashes for 1/2 a second and goes off. How can I fix this?

Marco, It does sound however, that the battery took a **** at just the wrong time. It happens sometimes with no notice at all. Pull the battery and see if it's bulging in any way. The simple fix is to simply replace the battery. If this is the issue, it's fixed. If not, then you have a much bigger issue. With those generations of PSP's, the battery must maintain 3-5% charge to even turn on. You can't even update the firmware with out at least 20% in the battery! Frustrating, I know! ^^ Good luck, and I hope this helps.

I charged my psp for atleast 5 hours.....but charge ended within 1 hour......what to do??

I'm just restating what you said here first...

You plugged in your psp for 5 hours.
You took it out.
You played it for 1 hour before it turned off...

If this is true, it seems that your battery just can't hold a charge. One solution would be to just buy a replacement battery, but you could try this...

Drain your psp completely. This means keeping it on until it turns off, then turn it on again, leave until off and so on. Just keep turning it on until it stays on for less than a minute.
Charge your battery overnight.

Hope this helps!!!

The psp sounds like its trying to spin but it just wont load. can you help me find out whats wrong?

Whack your PSP a few times, not too hard though, see if the UMD drive starts working!
Well, at least 'it' worked for me! XDXDXD
If you PSP is still under warranty, then you can BRING your PSP to SONY, FREE of charge!
If not, bring it to repairs anyway, Eg SONY.

PSP Does not work at all

Yes the battery could very much be dead since the PSP hasnt been used in quite a while. I would go to a store such as walmart or target and buy a new battery. Charge this one and try it in the PSP. If this doesnt work, return the battery for a refund and send the PSP in for repair to SONY.

Brand new psp battery will not charge

Did you charge it first? You need a good initial charge. Depending on the charger, it could be about 6 hours.

Also, remove the battery and check the metal contacts on the top and make sure that they are not covered by anything. Some come with a film to protect them.

PSP Charging problem

TEST : Take battery out. Plug in to wall. Wait 30+ secs with psp on. if the power turns off, then its the adapter which is broken, which costs about 5$


Your battery needs to be changed. Standard flavor costs bout 8$, extra long lasting spicy flavor costs 16$. (lol, chips)

Seriousley though, after some time, wear, and in some cases, temp. changes, the battery can become so weak, that it will only hold about a 5 second charge. Once you get less than 1 hour play time W/O charger, need to get a new battery.
