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!
When you connect the PSP via the USB, does the orange light power on? If you are using the standard USB cable and attached to the top of the PSP, from experience, it needs at least to have a little amount of battery power. If not, it will not totally power on or charge. You need the A/C adapter to charge the battery pack.
I can charge my PSP through USB cable even if its powered off. I'm using this one:
Try a different outlet in the wall, it might be the outlet, if it isn't
the outlet, maybe it's the power cord or the battery. If it's not
that, then it's your PSP. You'll have to send it to sony for a new one
if you want it replaced and if youve had it for over year you're going to have to pay $90. ------The fact that it turns off when the USB DC-in is connected and that it
will not power up without the battery lead me to think that either the
USB charging cable is just not supplying enough amps to run the psp
standalone nor charge the battery very quickly, or something is odd in
the PSP itself. I'm guessing when you plug something into the DC-in
socket and it detects 5V then it switches to that as a source, if the
USB cant supply the current it wants then it shuts down (just a guess).
this i'm afraid is a problem with the psp. to charge the psp off a computer usb mode doesn't need to be entered. so it will charge automatically and if not either the battery or psp charge port are stuffed. try a borrowed battery first then if that doesn't change it trade it in to eb games and get yourself a new one
ok a psp CANNOT in any way shape or form charge by using a usb cord.
so your kidding yourself if you think u got it to charge off of your pc in the first place.
but that is the problem you CANNOT charge your psp via usb
If it won't charge and wont power up then same thing happened to me. If you are willing to open up your psp there is a video on youtube that can show you whats wrong. The cable that connects the buttons on the right side most likely disconnected from the main board and the right side of the psp including the buttons, the power switch and the top right trigger won't respond. When you try to turn on the psp and when its charging if the light won't come on then you might have this problem.
