Need help my psp is not working when I turn on I can only see the green light no sounds no display just green light and after a few seconds later it turns off the last thing I did I update with something...

First you have to take out the battery and use charger to turned on and when it turn on just put on the battery or take out the battery and wait for minutes then put it on and tur on,if that doesn't work when you turn on just hold R and start or repair it

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.

New Psp Light comes on and then nothing.

I think it will be very hard to repair it so better take it back and change it... Can also try to fix it at shops but not in home. My friend had the same problem and all shops said that PSP had deffect which they cant fix...

Green light comes on but nothing else turns on

I'll give you the quick story of what they did. They "bricked" the PSP. This is a term used by all PSP hackers. When you try to hack the system so you can play pirated games on the system, you will occasionally get an error that causes the system to be "bricked". They use the word "brick" because once it happens, the PSP becomes as fun as a brick. You really can't do much about it. Your best bet is to call Sony and see what they can do for you. If you know anyone else that knows what they're doing with PSPs, you could always ask them to fix it for you, but Sony would be the easiest. They won't do it for free, but they will fix it for you. 1-800-345-SONY

Psps does load any discs

Ok Crowd,

All of you need to send your PSP off for repair. The UMD drives not reading is common fault of the PSP and the drive will need to be replaced. The power on Problem is possiblly a defective motherboard. They can be repaired.

Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then select "Video Game Consoles" on the next screen. Pick a good REpair shop that has experience in repairing PSP's. Ask them if they know what a UMD is. Then Ask them if they have ever replaced a UMD drive. If so they know what they are doing. Find a good price
