    Same here. It won't turn on even if plugged into wall outlet. Turns on, motor makes some noise as if it were trying to read the disc, then 5-10 secs later it just turns off.

Contact Sony if you can for Service at , This is something that is a design fault. They need to fix it. If you want it repaired, you can Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this Screen. Then click on "Video Game Consoles". Pick a Shop that has experience on PSP.

My psp wont turn on. the amber chargeing light is on, even left for a few hours to charge still wont charge and replaced the battery.

Hi there!
When you charge your PSP with the charger (USB/wall) does the power light turn to amber? If it does not, It's possible that your charger (USB/wall) is already broken. You may need to purchase a new one.
If it does, you may have either a loose power switch (which happens on my PSP Go) or you may need to have your unit checked with a qualified technician.
Hope this helps!

Psp carge light wont come on and psp wont turn on

You either have a bad battery, or a bad power supply that charges the unit (power cord). If you have a friend that also has a PSP, try swapping out the battery to see if that works, and or try another power cord to see if the charging indicator light comes on. I think that possibly your battery is dead and the power cord might be bad. You can find good deals for both the battery and cord on ebay. Good luck!

My psp wont charg

If it won't charge and wont power up then same thing happened to me. If you are willing to open up your psp there is a video on youtube that can show you whats wrong. The cable that connects the buttons on the right side most likely disconnected from the main board and the right side of the psp including the buttons, the power switch and the top right trigger won't respond. When you try to turn on the psp and when its charging if the light won't come on then you might have this problem.

Charge is complete but wont go on wthout power connected

I am sorry to say this...but chances are that your battery has malfuntioned or simply can't hold a charge anymore. If you want to be 100% sure try the battery in another PSP...and if it works then there is eomthing wrong with your PSP (this second scenerio is highly unlikely). I recommecnd getting a new battery. Good luck!

Power problems

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....
