PSP won't turn on

You can try a hard reset. Do this hold the power switch in the upward position for over 10 seconds. This will cause the machine to reboot. Leave it alone for a few minutes then try switching it back on. You may have to flick the switch on twice to start her up again. If it still has a hard time try changing the battery for the one in your sons machine. MAKE SURE that all apps etc are closed on the PSP first and do the hard reset BEFORE you remove the battery on BOTH machines. Ensure PSP is OFF before removing battery. It is possible the battery has been overcharged or just given up. If the console operates with the other battery you know you need get a fresh one. Consider getting a high power one for extended life. Let us know how you get on. May have more info for you.

Green light but nothing comes on

It seems that inside your PSP the LCD Screen Connection cable (The broad One) which is connected to the motherboard is being loose contact so if you can open the PSP try it by re-fixing the cable again otherwise you better go for a technician who will do the same job for you.

I have a sony 2001 PSP, and I've had it for less than a month and just recently I tried to use it, when i attempt to turn it on I press the power button and the green light (which shows that the PSP is on)...

For how long have you NOT been using your PSP? and did anything happen before you even tried using it AGAIN? Do you have others in your area who has a PSP? if nothing happened to your psp before you tried using it again e.g.accidentally fell or something like that, then just try to use a different WORKING psp battery...if it didn't work, then prolly your PSP went brick and the only solution for that is a pandora kit...

Cant get psp to work

Try Holding the R trigger and turn the power on at the same time. This puts you in a different mode. Press the display brightness button to see the version. Power off and back on again to see if that resets it. This is only a guess I would appreciate at least a thanks for trying.

Power problems

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....
