Hi, I have two problems: 1- My controller disconnects when I hold or press X repeatedly. 2- My play & charge kit light turns green after a few seconds when I want to charge the controller's...

Both issues might be to the same problem.

First problem number 1... you should try using some AA batteries and try to see if you still get the disconnect issue when pressing the X button repeatedly. If so then you have either a bad controller or you have some interference with your controller and other device that might be messing with the 2.4Ghz radio frequency. (Note: that sometimes metal frames and some wires can also bleed signals.)

If your controller works fine with the AA batteries then the issue is likely your rechargeable battery.

Secondly problem number 2... I have had similar issues with batteries. often times it is just because you have reached your limit with your charging on your battery. If you are an avid gamer then this might be the issue. You might want to try the tweak to getting your charger to work again:

"First insert the play and charge kit a little way in just enough to make a contact but not enough to click into place - light goes red - when light goes green slide it out a bit so the green light on the play and charge kit goes out - The green light on the controller should stay on, count to 2 in you head then slide it back in again like before. As soon as the light goes green to tell you its charged slide it back out again I had to do this 3 - 4 times then as if by magic the light should just stay red and carried on charging."

Hope this helps.

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 turns on for about 30 sec. but the screen dose not come on the battery is charged it was doing a update with the avatar game when it stopped working it`s Model psp-2001and the charge light comes on...

The system software has become corrupted... if a system update freezes, the PSP will have an incomplete operating system software on it and will not boot up. When you turn it on, it looks for system software, can't find it, and it will shut itself back off. This is what we call a "BRICKED" PSP.

The following website can fix it for you by rebuilding the system software for $29. It's the next to last option down -- "UNBRICK PSP"

Green light goes out after 10 sec no screen

1. Check battery - try recharging it overnight
2. Check integrity of AC charger if it still working properly. Or you can try charging the psp overnight using USB charger.

Psp charge for only 25 sec and cut off why is that?

Try replacing the battery. Alot of times when anything thats rechargeable have not been recharged for that long then the battery cells weaken to the point it won't hold a charge. GOOD LUCK!!!
