I was using my psp while it was charging and the charging light turned off, so i naturally assumed that it was fully charged. But a few minutes later the battery died and it wont charge when i plug it in....

Have you tried to remove the battery and put it back in and try to turn it on. Try removing the battery and putting the charger in and starting the PSP. If it starts, it might be the battery. If it doesn't, it's either the plugin for the charger or the PSP is just dead. If it does start with the charger, try putting the battery back in, if it charges awesome. If it doesn't the battery might be dead.

My PSP won't charge since yesterday when I mistakenly used the charger for my HP notebook,after that when I used the PSP's charger there's no orange light, USB connection doesn't work...

It is possible that when you connected your charger to your laptop, it fried the capacitors in the charger. The best solution would be to take the PSP to gamestop (or like store) and see if they can use a charger to verify that your PSP is still in working condition.

My PSP won't charge,I mistakenly used a different charger yesterday,my HP notebook charger,when I tried the charger for my PSP there's no orange light, USB connection to the PC doesn't work...

I'm afraid it already burned the boards.But, I hope that you're lucky, maybe the special fuse on the board save your PSP, you can fix it by finding the service center.
The problems start because of the voltage of your notebook charger too high for the PSP.

Bought new charger and battery psp works fine but wont charge

It sounds like the PSP does not recognize the charger. I recommend buying a Sony certified charger.

Chargind psp

If it’s the 2000 series (PSP Slim), then yes. Connect your PSP system to an available USB port on your computer. Turn on your PSP, then under “Settings“, select “USB Connection”. Your PSP should connect to your computer and start charging. It may take awhile, but it will charge it all the way. Hold the display button (The button with the rectangular shape at the bottom of your PSP) until the screen goes black. This will speed up the charging process and is a good method of prolonging battery life when listening to music or other things.

If that doesn’t work, try looking for an adapter lying around your house that matches the volt numbers. The PSP takes 5V. Most portable CD players use 5V adapters and are usually the same size as needed for the PSP. I suggest using an adapter that matches the volt number and fits without trouble. If the orange light doesn’t come on or the PSP acts weird after charging, I’d stop using the adapter. Ask me any questions if you have any. ;)

PSP cannot be charge through wall charger

Maybe the powerpoint that you used isn't working!

Try charging on another powerpoint!

If it isn't the chargers' fault, then it must be your battery, or PSP DC IN connector, where you insert the charger into the PSP.

No power (orange) charge light

Hi there, I am assuming that it was working ok until you tried to charge it then?? I have come across this problem before and you are right about the fuse, there is a fuse on the charge/power circuit that is located in the very top right hand corner of the motherboard, next to where the black power lead attaches to the motherboard - if you repair or bridge that fuse then it will work fine assuming that like I said at the begining it was working before you put the wrong charger in. If you cannot repair that fuse then the console will work fine if you can charge the battery without using that PSP (i.e. another psp or third party external charger) as there is no fuse on the battery circuit as there would not be a surge in power unlike the mains circuit. If you need more information or if this reply is not clear then let me know and I'll get an image of the fuse you need to repair.
