Re: psp won't turn out

Try ejecting the battery pack and put it back in after a few minutes. See if that helps anything. I had a problem like this quite a while ago and that's what I did and it fixed it right up. ^-^

My PSP doesn't turn on, when I move the switch the green light just flashes for 1/2 a second and goes off. How can I fix this?

Marco, It does sound however, that the battery took a **** at just the wrong time. It happens sometimes with no notice at all. Pull the battery and see if it's bulging in any way. The simple fix is to simply replace the battery. If this is the issue, it's fixed. If not, then you have a much bigger issue. With those generations of PSP's, the battery must maintain 3-5% charge to even turn on. You can't even update the firmware with out at least 20% in the battery! Frustrating, I know! ^^ Good luck, and I hope this helps.

Ok in left my psp charging for 3 days the green light turns on but the screen does not it stays black and my friend was updating my psp the he sayed that the battery fell then it turned off and it does not...

Ok it sounds as if your friend has bricked your PSP. Please be careful when you are updating your PSP as this will brick your PSP. Let me give you a quick overview of what happens when your PSP updates, first of all your PSP will erase it's operating system and write a new Operating system, this is why it will not turn on completely if you lose power while it's updating. ONLY UPDATE YOUR PSP IF IT'S COMPLETELY CHARGED AND PLUGGED IN FOR SAFETY REASONS. I will not post the solution to this problem for it is too long to post up here, YouTube has many videos on how to un-brick your PSP. Best of luck, for the solution you can email me at

How long do I charge the psp battery?


most psp chargers are fitted with a cut-out.
which means that when the batteries are fully charged.
The charger shuts off.
A full initial Charge ( New-Battery ) could take 4-8 hours et,c Dependant on Capacity.
also a red light to green, can indicate full charge.

Switching on my psp after charging it

Please mention after switching on the PSP power LED turns on or not? ================================================= Suppose without connecting the charger when you power on your PSP you will see green light and you will get sound clear with no display at all and after 1 min: PSP will turn off automatically. then 99% it means that your PSP is bricked.

Psp unit just stop comming on

If you know another PSP user , try using their battery on your PSP to see if it is a faulty battery. Does it work on the AC Cable? If not it then it could be power line fault and will need repair
