Question about Sony PSP (Piano Black)
When did the problem started? Did you install anything or update the software? Or it was stocked for a long time?
If it was stocked, then the first thing that you may want to try is to use different battery and see if you'll get the same problem.
If same problem occur, though you've got new charger and tried different battery, then the problem has something to do with the small components around the internal power unit.
However, if your PSP won't turn on because of a program or software that was installed recently, you may need to unbrick your PSP.

If that did not help, I would suggest to contact Sony, and have them check it, and see if there's any hardware defect.
Thank you and good luck!

When PSP's are working properly, you are right the orange light should be on.
A blinking light (green) and then turning off is normal when it goes into sleep mode rather than full power down. However, even when it if off, it ought to show orange while plugged in.
I have seen troublesome PSP's where the switch was just failing; are you certain you are getting full movement all the way to the top when trying to turn it on.
Even with the battery out, it should boot up when plugged into mains power. have you given the connections at the power supply from the wall and into the PSP a good press and wiggle?
Also, removing the battery for several minutes and then plugging the battery and the power cable back in has been known to wake up a sleepy psp. The clock and settings will need to be setup again this way.
Lastly, if you have tried altering your PSP's firmware and failed at it, then the symptoms are the same. Your PSP is bricked and you will need a pandoras battery to fix it. (These are pretty easy to come by.)
I hope that helps.

Hi, turn off your PSP, Press and hold the R button, and power on at the
same time. This may reset the PSP. If not, do you get any sound? Look
at the Display real close and see if you are getting any graphics. If
your getting sound, and you can see some graphics, you have a back light
problem. If you get no sound and cannot see graphic, then their is a
high chance of your PSP being bricked. This means that you done
something to interrupt an upload or program in progress. The eeprom
program is corrupted and the PSP will not boot up. The term Bricked,
refers to your PSP being no better than a black Brick paper weight. I
have heard of a repair for this called Pandoras Battery.
You need to:- re-install your custom firmware. (Pandora's battery and all that) Then make sure your memory stick is a pandoras one and start again
