Psp keeps turning off

Hello Ena_Zarate; Have you tried to check the following?

- Is the Battery Low: Try turning the PSP on with the Battery Removed, and the charged plugged in? If it turns on it must be your battery. It may need charging, or it may be dead and is no longer able to hold its charge.

My psp can't turn on with the battery but when i put it on the charge it work .what can i do ?

That problem means your battery is dead, and needs to be replace!
Check the physical and voltage output of your battery, if its bloated, that means battery is dead. If no power output from battery and its not bloated, the internal circuit in the battery is dead.
Hope that explains everything!
Thanks for using Fixya!

When i try to turn on my psp it doesnt work. the light comes for a few seconds a and turns back off. The screen doesnt work too. ITS all black. Last thing i remeber i downloaded something and tried to...

Try to performa a Hard Reset:

1- make sure the battery is fully charged.
2- Hold the power switch to on (up) for at least 10 seconds.

3. switch it back on. (sometimes you have to do it twice, but for now just try doing that one time).

If that doesn't work, try Holding the Power on for 20 to 30 seconds.

If that doesn't work remove the battery overnight.

or try another battery (it could be dead/defective/dead cells, etc.)

Plugging in PSP to charger, no lights at all.

These maybe the the problems:
1) Check weather the charger is switched on.
2) Check weather there is low voltage or high voltage.High voltage can damage your psp or the charger.
3) Check weather your psp is in full charge.The lights may not switch on if you have full charge.
If you have checked all the above you better buy a new one OR buy or borrow a usb cable, connect your psp to a laptop or pc.But before going to usb mode go to system settings in settings and set usb charge to ON.And now you can charge your psp while your in usb mode.The light will turn orange if it doesn't there is a problem with your psp.

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 turns on and then turn off by itself

There is a dry solder (loose connection) internally ON/OFF PC Board of your PSP. you have to open the PSP and resolder the contacts of ON/OFF switch.
