I have a PSP that I charged overnight and a orange light came on when i plugged it in to the wall charger. After charging all night I went to power on the PSP and it will not power on, no green or orange...

Remove the battery.
Plug the PSP charger into the PSP.
Turn it on.

The PSP works with no battery inside.
If you're not getting a green light at all, your PSP has some sort of damaged as it should work while plugged in with no battery inside.

I charged my PSP with a universal charger and wrong polarity. My PSP immediately shut off. when I tried to turn it on again it would not turn on, and the green light does not light up either. when I charge...

Sounds like the battery is charged fully. If you know someone else who has another psp, try putting the battery into his/hers and see if it starts up. If so, your psp may have been fried. There is not much you can do.

Do not get the indicator light saying PSP is charging

we all know if the orange light doesn't come on it means its full charge but in your case its still the same maybe you should go to a mechanic that knows how to fix it or go back to your warranty and say its still the same thats why it is functioning that way is because their is something wrong inside please vote for me cloud_foe :)

Psp 2006 battery

You don't have a problem; the seller is an idiot. Leave it plugged in for good measure, but your PSP is fine.

Many products ship with a completely discharged battery (many cellphones, for instance) and they must charge for a long time. PSPs don't; they ship with a partially charged battery.
