My PSP won't charge,I mistakenly used a different charger yesterday,my HP notebook charger,when I tried the charger for my PSP there's no orange light, USB connection to the PC doesn't work...


I'm afraid it already burned the boards.But, I hope that you're lucky, maybe the special fuse on the board save your PSP, you can fix it by finding the service center.
The problems start because of the voltage of your notebook charger too high for the PSP.

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.

My psp wont turn on. the amber chargeing light is on, even left for a few hours to charge still wont charge and replaced the battery.


Hi there!
When you charge your PSP with the charger (USB/wall) does the power light turn to amber? If it does not, It's possible that your charger (USB/wall) is already broken. You may need to purchase a new one.
If it does, you may have either a loose power switch (which happens on my PSP Go) or you may need to have your unit checked with a qualified technician.
Hope this helps!

My psp is not working because the charger is fried or its the psp itself and doing it.And I just got a brand new charger on last saturday too.And i was in the middle of a important level.And I LOVE monster...


Plug the psp in with the charger and remove the battery. If it turns on, then the battery may be no good.
If it dies not turn on at all, then the charger or batter is bad.
If it turns on with what little power you probably have left, it is the charger.

If you have a friend with another psp and charger, test it with his. If it is not getting power at all, then its something with the psp that you do not even want to deal with.

I have a PSP that I charged overnight and a orange light came on when i plugged it in to the wall charger. After charging all night I went to power on the PSP and it will not power on, no green or orange...


Remove the battery.
Plug the PSP charger into the PSP.
Turn it on.

The PSP works with no battery inside.
If you're not getting a green light at all, your PSP has some sort of damaged as it should work while plugged in with no battery inside.

Psp was dropped and will not turn on unless charger is plugged in the wall.


It sounds like a power supply problem. either your battery or the internal power source is defected do to the drop.. or maybe u didnt charge your battery. On one of my psps i have to wiggle around the ac adaptor to make sure its charging sometimes

If this doesnt resolve your problem you may have to call psp customer service at 800-345-7669. This is a toll free number.

Green light but nothing comes on


It seems that inside your PSP the LCD Screen Connection cable (The broad One) which is connected to the motherboard is being loose contact so if you can open the PSP try it by re-fixing the cable again otherwise you better go for a technician who will do the same job for you.
