This may be a silly question but have you tried replacing the battery? I had a similar problem and bought a new battery and it did the trick.

Psp is not charging


  • Make sure the AC adaptor is properly inserted in the PSP system and that the AC power cord is properly inserted in a working electrical outlet.

  • Make sure the AC adaptor for this product is being used.

  • Make sure the AC adaptor is clean. If not, wipe it with a dry, soft cloth.

  • Make sure the wireless (WLAN) network function is not in use while charging. The battery pack cannot be recharged when the WLAN function is being used.

  • If you are charging the battery pack in an extremely cold location, it might take longer to charge.

  • There might be a problem with the battery pack. For the PSP system, try using a replacement battery pack of the same type. For the PSPgo, the battery is built-in, you may need to send your system in for service.

You could try another battery.But if another battery doesn't work,sorry mate I think it's dead.In future make sure you only use what you know is compatible,also NEVER try to run the PSP with the AC adaptor without the battery in.The PSP safety and support booklet states: Do not use the PSP system with the AC Adaptor when the Battery Pack is not inserted in the system.If the AC Adaptor is disconnected suddenly,it may result in damage to the system.

If it is the motherboard that's burnt out I think you can replace it but they're expensive I think,I saw one for a PSP1000 for

My psp will not charge the battery but in my brother it does? After the battery is charged i can use my psp like normal but i hate waiting for the battery to charge before i can continue playing the game....


check your devce with his adaptor. If it is charging, get a spare adaptor. If it is not, probably the adaptor jack on your device is damaged or got unsoldered.

Ac adaptor for psp


this i'm afraid is a problem with the psp. to charge the psp off a computer usb mode doesn't need to be entered. so it will charge automatically and if not either the battery or psp charge port are stuffed. try a borrowed battery first then if that doesn't change it trade it in to eb games and get yourself a new one

My psp wont turn on!


  • Hi! TRY THESE TO SEE IF WE CAN GET YOU POWERED UP! :)



    Confirm the system is not in HOLD mode

    Make sure the PSP system is not in Hold Mode (in the down position). Slide the Power/Hold switch up to clear Hold Mode. Or try sliding the Power/Hold switch up and holding it there until the power indicator light turns off and the PSP system is completely turned off. Then try turning the PSP on again.

    • Confirm the backlight is ON
      Make sure the LCD screen's backlight is not turned off. If it is, press any button to turn ON the backlight.

    • Confirm use of only licensed products (AC Adaptor, battery pack and charger)
      The AC Adaptor, battery pack and battery charger must be licensed for use with the PSP system. All licensed products for use with the PSP will have the following logos displayed directly on the product and/or the packaging:
      pslogor.gif global_logos_psplogo_168x35.jpg global_logos_scealogowhite_60x73.gif
      If any of the products you are using does not have these logos on them, we recommend that you immediately discontinue the use of these products, as they void the PSP system's warranty, and can cause damage to the system. See compatible peripherals for the PSP system for a full list of supported products.
      There are some products that can be used with the PSP system that may not display our logos. Products such as San Disk 1GB Memory Sticks, or various USB cables, needs only to be genuinely certified. Look for the genuine certified logos on these products or contact the company which manufactures these products for more information.

    • Confirm the battery pack is correctly inserted
      Make sure the battery pack is in its proper position (see inserting the battery pack for details).

    • Try the battery pack only
      Unplug the AC adaptor from the PSP system. Make sure a charged PSP battery pack is inserted inside the PSP system. Turn on the unit. If you get power, then the problem may be with the AC adaptor and power cord.

    • Try the battery pack in a different PSP system
      If possible, try your PSP battery pack in a different PSP system. If your battery works on a different PSP system, it may indicate an issue with your PSP system.

    • Try a different PSP battery pack
      If possible, try a different battery in your PSP system. If a different battery pack does work on your PSP system, it may indicate an issue with the original battery pack.

    • Try the AC adaptor and the PSP battery pack
      Insert the battery pack and plug in the AC adaptor. If you still do not get any power, your PSP system may need to be sent in for service (see PSP Service for details).

    • Try the AC adaptor / power cord only
      Turn off the PSP system, unplug the AC adaptor, and remove the battery. Now plug in the AC adaptor to the PSP system with the battery removed. Confirm the AC adaptor and power cord are firmly connected to each other. Now make sure they are also firmly connected to the PSP system and the electrical outlet.
      If the PSP system powers on, the battery may need to be replaced.

    • Check AC adaptor and power cord for damage
      Visually inspect the AC adaptor and the power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.

    • Check the electrical outlet
      Confirm the electrical outlet that you are using is active (receiving power). Try using a different electrical outlet.

    • Try a different AC adaptor and power cord
      If possible, try a different AC adaptor and power cord. If a different AC adaptor and power cord does not work, the PSP system may need to be sent in for service (see PSP Service for details).

    • Confirm no unauthorized system software or downloads were used
      Confirm that you have not used any unauthorized system software updates or downloads on the PSP system. Use of such unauthorized firmware updates voids the warranty and can damage the PSP system.

    • WLAN turned off
      Make sure the wireless (WLAN) network function is not in use while charging. The battery pack cannot be recharged when the WLAN function is being used.

    • Power surge
      If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PSP system's power supply. Please contact Consumer Services below for information.

    Charging PSP Problem.


    Never use a higher voltage than is recommende for sensitive electronics,sounds as if when you used the higher voltage you completely overloaded the battery so it won't hold a charge either way,sounds like you will need a new battery if nothing else is damaged.

    PSP will not turn on


    hmmm... that sucks. Could be a fried power slide-switch. If no power is getting through the system, even when using the AC adaptor, it's probably something in the power chain.

    It might be of benefit if you could try the battery and power adaptor in someone elses PSP, if they both work then it's probably something internal, and it's not unheard of for the power switches to go kaput.

    If it's under warranty, take it back. If not, you'll need to have it checked out I think.

    Brand new psp battery will not charge


    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.
