I plug in to AC charge for the whole day and try to turnon, with switch on the right hand side, nothing happened


On the occasion it won't chrage the PSP. You should double check that it is charging it. Also, try to see if it'll turn on while plugged in. If it turns on, let it charge, if it doesn't either the battery is shot or the plug-in spot is broken or not responsive.

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.


Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

Psp green light on, but no booting or anything. its not a fault of Software... its Hardware for Sure! any help?


Hello

If the green light comes on, but the unit won't power up, you could have a battery problem.

Clean out the battery compartment. Use a can of compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris. If you left the battery in while you stored the unit, look around the connectors for any sign of corrosion that could be affecting the connection.

Plug the PSP into the power adapter with the battery still inside. If this doesn't work, remove the battery and see if the PSP powers on with the adapter only. If it does, then the battery likely needs to be replaced.

Boot the unit in recovery mode. The PlayStation Portable is like a small computer with a tiny hard drive. And just like a computer, sometimes it gets scrambled; booting in recovery mode can help you identify or correct the problem.

Determine if your PSP has been "bricked." If the PSP was turned off for any reason during a firmware update, it can cause "bricking," so named because it renders your PSP into a useless, plastic brick. Buying a new PSP or sending yours to Sony for repair are your only options if this has occurred.

PSP charged all night and will not power on


You're not being clear.
You say "I get nothing"

Do you get a green light? Or no green light?
What if you plug it in? Do you get a green light if it's plugged in with no battery inside?

If you get a green light with the battery in but nothing on the screen, your PSP is bricked.

If the PSP works while plugged in but not with the battery it's either having motherboard problems or the three prongs on the back of the PSP are not making good contact with the battery.
