First you have to take out the battery and use charger to turned on and when it turn on just put on the battery or take out the battery and wait for minutes then put it on and tur on,if that doesn't work when you turn on just hold R and start or repair it

PSP screen turns on to a black screen and don't turn back off

When you were taking out the chip out of the slot, you most likely scratched the motherboard below, which takes care of WiFi and the memory chip yourself. Your best bet would be to call Sony if it is on warranty, if not, buy the part from eBay and have someone install it.

My PSP wont read my battery

Try putting it in a bag of rice for a day or so, because rice absorbs moisture, so it might draw out any water still inside. Hope this helps.

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....
