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.

It sounds like the electrical input isn't working. Try plugging the chargers into other wall jacks. It could be that your PSP is defective, which in that case you should exchange it at the store you bought it at. Since you bought it brand new, it should still be under warranty.

My PSP 2001 won't charge at all and i don't know if i can charge it on my computer. I have an AC adapter and it still won't charge! Any help is accepted. BTW, it's not my battery.


Well, if it's not your battery, then it has gotta be the charger, or the power supply. Most likely your Charger.

- If your PSP is still under warranty, & if the charger came with your PSP when you bought it, then you can probably ask for a replacement from SONY.
- See if anyone, friends, neighbours.. you know that has a PSP AC charger. Ask if you could use it to see if your PSP chargers.
If it works, then you gotta get a new charger.
If it doesn't, then there's a problem with your PSP!

I cant charg my psp i cant find my charger


When you say you can't cahrge it, do you mean on your PC, PS3 or with the charger? I don't think the PS3 charges the PSP, I have no idea about the PC, but if the PSP doesn't charge using it's charger, it is either the battery, the charger, or the psp charger outlet. If it is the battery, buy a new one. If it is the charger outlet, it is a good idea to have 2 working batteries and to buy an external charger at game crazy, game stop, or from sony. This way, you can switch out batteries while playing, like me :). If it is the charger, buy a new one.
I would suggest first trying to buy a new battery. If it works, you are good to go and your old battery was broken, otherwise your charger/ charger outlet is broken. Buy an external charger. Then, you will be able to charge the batteries while one is in the PSP.
A new battery and an external charger cost about $70, but it is worth it. I hope i helped.

It sounds like the PSP does not recognize the charger. I recommend buying a Sony certified charger.

Ok i just bought a new psp slim battery and a new charger and my psp wont charge and i dont know what to do but, i do have a psp slim 2001 (ice silver) and i bought a psp charger and battery thats 2000 so...


this is easy i solved it! buy a charger from gamestop that you have to take the battery out and then put it in the charger and charge it that way! that way if your fuse inside your psp is out it will charge the battey without putting it in the psp so all you do with the item is: take your battery out, put it in the alternative charger from gamestop (does not come with psp slim 2001 or 2000) plug the charger in the while charge the battery then bam!! there you go problem solved have a fun time playing your psp!
