Please do not purchace this product with an error. Chances are that if it's having problems now, it will only continue to have more with further usage. It's easier to go to a game store and get a used one; they check them for functionallity and offer some sort of waranty. It may cost a little more but at least you know it's fully functional. It's definately worth the money spent for a good one; they're a lot of fun and easy to use. Good Luck!

Psp 3000 doesnt want to charge


More than likely your charger is broken. If the charger has any lights on it, see if they turn on when the charger is plugged into an outlet. If the lights don't turn on, try another outlet. If the lights still won't come on, you need a new charger.

If the lights work, or your charger doesn't have any try using a different charger and see if the PSP will charge. If not, then the actual connection within your PSP is shot, or there was a short in your system.

What to do when psp do not start even we power it on?


First check to make sure the battery and power cord are fully functional. I would test your charger with another PSP. If you know for certain that your power cord works, then then you have an issue with the PSP, not the power cord. Then see if the warranty is still good. Sony has a 1-year warranty on all of their products. If you didn't purchase the system brand new and got a used one instead, the warranty may very well be over. If the warranty isn't any good, I'd take it to a professional. Fixing the product itself can be very tricky, and probably isn't worth it.

I am not able to start my PSP 3000 I am using a usb cord to charge the PSP, I am getting the hold light however not getting the power on please assist


When you connect the PSP via the USB, does the orange light power on? If you are using the standard USB cable and attached to the top of the PSP, from experience, it needs at least to have a little amount of battery power. If not, it will not totally power on or charge. You need the A/C adapter to charge the battery pack.

I can charge my PSP through USB cable even if its powered off. I'm using this one:

Psp was connected to car charger and now does not work.Set at 4v


Had service personnel check and it was determined that the battery and charger was good; therefore focus shifted to the motherboard. Due to the cost of the new PSP 3000 being $169.00 and possible charges to repair the PSP 1000, I determine that it would be more economical to buy a new system.

Thanks for help!
