Try keeping your psp battery in a dry place for a day,then try charging.If this doesn't work..
Try the following:
a) Try charging using a usb cable...
c)Also try cleaning the usb port and power port or the place were u connect the charger to psp...
b) Remove ur psp battery and plug in the charger and turn on the psp... When it turns on put the battery back in (do not turn off the switch or psp when u put the battery back in)...

My psp wont chards how can i do


if it wont charge try another charger to first rule out your charger for faults then try another battery if it is a psp 3001 and still has enough battery to turn on switch it to usb charge and try that its possible that they have a separate charging circuit allowing you to bypass a potential fried charge circuit ps when they fully lose charge usb charging isn't possible ok

My usb cable will not charge my psp


Are you plugging the charging plug into the PSP?There are two plugs on the USB cable 1.the USB plug. 2.the charger plug itself. The USB cable looks like the other end that plugs into the computer only smaller.The charger plug looks like the ordinary AC adaptor.
Also note that You need the computer/device that the PSP is connected to,must be turned on,well this is true with mine anyway.
Also the USB does not charge the PSP as fast as the AC adaptor.

My psp 1001 is not charging. i plugged it in the socket when the power generator at my home was running and the psp stopped charging after the generator stopped and power shifted to the mains.


hello, try charging it threw the USB port and see if that works, if it does, then you know that the psp isnt the problem. It can be your charger or you may need to replace your battery.

Plugging in PSP to charger, no lights at all.


These maybe the the problems:
1) Check weather the charger is switched on.
2) Check weather there is low voltage or high voltage.High voltage can damage your psp or the charger.
3) Check weather your psp is in full charge.The lights may not switch on if you have full charge.
If you have checked all the above you better buy a new one OR buy or borrow a usb cable, connect your psp to a laptop or pc.But before going to usb mode go to system settings in settings and set usb charge to ON.And now you can charge your psp while your in usb mode.The light will turn orange if it doesn't there is a problem with your psp.

Brand new psp battery will not charge


Did you charge it first? You need a good initial charge. Depending on the charger, it could be about 6 hours.

Also, remove the battery and check the metal contacts on the top and make sure that they are not covered by anything. Some come with a film to protect them.
