Re: PSP will not turn on

Have you tried ejecting your battery pack? I've had a problem like this. But I don't recall the green light coming on for 15 seconds. Anyway, try ejecting the battery pack and putting it back in. If that doesn't work, then... I tried.

When you turn the game on the screen is blank. The green light stays on for 10-20 seconds and then goes off.

Sony psp problem

Remove the battery for 15 minutes, connect the AC Adapter and install the battery again.
It that doesn't work, remove the battery again, wait 15 minutes, install it and plug the AC Adapter.
It's a weird problem but in my PSP i get around that way.
