    I have the same problem, I bought a new battery and a new charger. The orange light stays lit for about 5 minutes then it goes off. Should it stay orange until fully charged? Thanks for the help

TEST : Take battery out. Plug in to wall. Wait 30+ secs with psp on. if the power turns off, then its the adapter which is broken, which costs about 5$

OTHERWISE:

Your battery needs to be changed. Standard flavor costs bout 8$, extra long lasting spicy flavor costs 16$. (lol, chips)

Seriousley though, after some time, wear, and in some cases, temp. changes, the battery can become so weak, that it will only hold about a 5 second charge. Once you get less than 1 hour play time W/O charger, need to get a new battery.

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.


Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

How do you fix a psp that the green light only comes on for a 1/2 sec.


My psp gives me this problem all the time. In my case it is because my battery is completely dead and i am too cheap to purchase a new one. You most likely just have a dead battery, try charging it for a day (over exaggerating) and see if you can turn it on for longer than a half a second, if you can..its the battery.

My PSP will not turn on unless it is plugged into the outlet. When I try to turn it on by itself the power light flickers green for two seconds and then disappears. Also, the battery is fully charged. When...


replace the battery as it may be out of CYCLES even tho it says its fully charged if the battry is new your going to need a new element inside usually this consist of a new logic board under the battery pack.


good luck

Power Problem with my psp


Make sure the plug is all the way in the socket, and make sure it's plugged into an outlet. If those are bouth done. Are you sure it only charges for the 3 minutes? maybe it's full by the time th elight goes off. Uhhh I'd say it's probably something wrong with either the things connecting the battery to the PSP or, the female end of the power connector. Damn females always messing things up.

Chargind psp


If it’s the 2000 series (PSP Slim), then yes. Connect your PSP system to an available USB port on your computer. Turn on your PSP, then under “Settings“, select “USB Connection”. Your PSP should connect to your computer and start charging. It may take awhile, but it will charge it all the way. Hold the display button (The button with the rectangular shape at the bottom of your PSP) until the screen goes black. This will speed up the charging process and is a good method of prolonging battery life when listening to music or other things.

If that doesn’t work, try looking for an adapter lying around your house that matches the volt numbers. The PSP takes 5V. Most portable CD players use 5V adapters and are usually the same size as needed for the PSP. I suggest using an adapter that matches the volt number and fits without trouble. If the orange light doesn’t come on or the PSP acts weird after charging, I’d stop using the adapter. Ask me any questions if you have any. ;)

New psp will not charge


If you have multi meter at home make sure that voltage is coming from the adapter.

if the psp have some battery backup check the battery level when u put on charge...

Go to Settings>> System Settings>> Battery Information>>

If you dont have the equipments to check go your nearest electronic service center or sony showroom. Take your charger with the psp so that they can find out the exact problem

Psp 2006 battery


You don't have a problem; the seller is an idiot. Leave it plugged in for good measure, but your PSP is fine.

Many products ship with a completely discharged battery (many cellphones, for instance) and they must charge for a long time. PSPs don't; they ship with a partially charged battery.
