Your Charger must not be getting enough electrical current from the outlet or there is something wrong with your charger. Try using another charger/outlet and seeif that works.

It may be that you overcharge the battery.

I charged my psp for atleast 5 hours.....but charge ended within 1 hour......what to do??

I'm just restating what you said here first...

You plugged in your psp for 5 hours.
You took it out.
You played it for 1 hour before it turned off...

If this is true, it seems that your battery just can't hold a charge. One solution would be to just buy a replacement battery, but you could try this...

Drain your psp completely. This means keeping it on until it turns off, then turn it on again, leave until off and so on. Just keep turning it on until it stays on for less than a minute.
Charge your battery overnight.

Hope this helps!!!

My battery dosent last 1 hr from full charge new comp. 2 days old

you posted this in the desktop section I am assuming that this might be for a laptop? If it is then you might have gotten a bad battery. This does not normally happen, but it is possible.

Another thing that could be affecting it is the power settings. If you have the power settings set to maximum, then they will drain your laptop battery super fast, and about an hour sounds normal.

Another factor that might run a battery down fast is heat. If a laptop is used without proper airflow underneath it, it will drain the battery fast also. To solve this, you can use your laptop on a flat smooth surface, like a desk or table, or invest in a USB laptop cooler pad.

Directional Button and L Button Problem and another problem.

I think there might be a problem with your configuration, remove all plugin then try to restore to default setting on setting menu. and/or if your psp installed Custom firmware, the umd speed are set to fast. do this via recovery menu (hold R trigger while turn on psp). you may need to fix L button if it is stuck. you may consoder sending it back to Sony for repair.You can call SONY support at 1-800-345-7669. hope this helps.
