I have a psp and i dont know if the psp is broken or is it my charger or battery please help!!!!!!! sony model psp-110 battery pack 3.6

Solution 1: Try to borrow from your friend psp charger and charge it if charging. this maybe the problem.

Solution 2. Try to borrow replace the battery if it will charge. This may be the problem.

Otherwise the problem would be the psp unit itself that you are using while at battery charging. Hence your are playing and moving, you have tendency to damage the charging port of your psp. This maybe the problem and need replacement of parts.

I was playing my psp all day, then i charged it at themorning and at the evening, when i charged it during at night, it blacked out, when i try to open it, i does'nt open. what is the problem in my psp?

Err open it do you mean turning it on?You probably were playing on it for too long,also there are some chargers that burn the battery out if you don't keep an eye on them.If it won't turn on now I don't know what you can do to correct it.I used to play on my PSP about 8 hours a day but stopped (mainly because there is hardly anyone left playing Mpo ).

The PSP will not stay charged.My son used to always play it while it was charging. I was wondering if this would bring about an issue with the battery.

During charging the battery gaining some power to recharge itself.When you use it while charging the battery forced to give you enough power to operate the PSP.It seems your are using power directly from charger instead from battery, and It could damaged the cell. All you can do is to replace it with same model battery and dont play it while charging.If possible turn off the unit while charging.God bless

PSP screen frozen

For this u got to reset ur psp. The easiest way to reset the PSP is to do a hard-reset. This means holding the power switch in the up position for around ten seconds. This will then shut off the PSP. You may then need to flick the power button either once or twice for the device to come back on. 
The hard reset method is normally sufficient to bring the PSP back to life and resume use, although it may mean you lose your place in the game you were playing.
The alternative to the hard reset is to drop the battery out of the PSP. While I don’t really recommend this, sometimes a hard-reset will fail and this is your only option. To do this, simply drop the battery out of the PSP by sliding the cover open, and then wait for a few seconds. Pop the battery back in and fire up the PSP. Hopefully all will be well.

Psp turning off while playing

Check the battery holder.Sometimes the battery holder can cause that problem.If you replaced your battery door make sure the new one have a little pad inside or the battery can get loose.
If this one don`t solve your problem try to upgrade the firmware.May be is a bug in the Firmware

PSP won't power on

When you play a new game for the first time, the psp checks for the firmware version of your psp. If a newer version is available, the disc will require you to update your psp. If you do not update the game cannot be played. If you update, you MUST charge the battery 1st. Then, you must have the charge plugged in and allow the update to run uninterrupted. If you remove the game or unplug the charger during the update the bios chip will be ruined and you now have little more than a "brick".
When this happens, the unit completely locks up and has to be replaced. Basically, it corrupts the operating system and there is no ability to restore default settings as a back-up.
