Charging PSP Problem.

I have a Old black PSP and have a problem charging it.
The battery works fine in it but I cannot get a charge into the system through the AC adaptor. This problem started a couple of months ago and for a while I could charge it through the computer USB/AS Cable . I then tried to charge it rhough another adaptor with a higher voltage, and now I cannot charge it through the computer route either. Basically i cannot get a charge through to the PSP or the battery. Any Idea's please.

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.

I need to know if the power source could be the problem. I already replaced the battery and it worked fine for a week, and then died. I already took it apart once and fixed the dpad, so that's not a p


This could be due to a faulty charging cable, a burnt-out battery or the interference of software you have downloaded. Solve these problems by testing your PSP to locate the charging problem and proceed to implement the correct solution.

Instructions
Revert to Factory Settings

1 Switch the WLAN button on your PSP so that it is in the "Off" position. Remove any memory stick or UMD that is in the system and put them aside.

2 Choose "Settings " from the left side of the cross media bar. Scroll to "Restore Default Settings." Press "X" to enter this menu. Press "X" to accept the restoration. The PSP will then revert back to its original settings.

3 Power off the PSP and plug it into an outlet with the AC adapter to charge for three hours. Power on the system to see if if the charging issue has been resolved.

USB Charging

4 Power on your PSP and scroll to the far left of the cross media bar. Choose "System Settings" and press "X." Scroll down the System Settings menu until you reach the option for "USB Charge." Press "X" and switch the setting to "On."

5 Return to the "System Settings" menu and choose "USB Auto Connect." Make sure the Auto Connect setting has been turned on. This allows your PSP to enter USB mode and begin charging whenever it is connected to another device.

6 Connect the PSP to a powered on PS3 or PC using the USB connector cable. The small end fits into the top of your PSP while the large end is inserted into a USB slot in your chosen system. The PSP will automatically enter USB mode as soon as it is connected.

7 Leave the PSP attached to the system for 30 minutes to an hour. When you detach your PSP, check your battery power. If it has gone up, then the charging problem is with your AC adapter. You can replace it or continue to use the USB charge function.

Battery

8 Plug your PSP into an outlet using the AC adapter cable and power on the system.

9 Enter the "System Settings Menu." Scroll down until you reach "Battery Information." Press "X" to open the menu.

10 Check the last option on the page which is labeled "Battery Status." If the status does not say "Charging," then the battery is not receiving a charge from the cable. While your PSP is getting power from the cable, you will need to purchase a new battery.

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.

Chargind psp


If it’s the 2000 series (PSP Slim), then yes. Connect your PSP system to an available USB port on your computer. Turn on your PSP, then under “Settings“, select “USB Connection”. Your PSP should connect to your computer and start charging. It may take awhile, but it will charge it all the way. Hold the display button (The button with the rectangular shape at the bottom of your PSP) until the screen goes black. This will speed up the charging process and is a good method of prolonging battery life when listening to music or other things.

If that doesn’t work, try looking for an adapter lying around your house that matches the volt numbers. The PSP takes 5V. Most portable CD players use 5V adapters and are usually the same size as needed for the PSP. I suggest using an adapter that matches the volt number and fits without trouble. If the orange light doesn’t come on or the PSP acts weird after charging, I’d stop using the adapter. Ask me any questions if you have any. ;)

Psp 2006 battery


You don't have a problem; the seller is an idiot. Leave it plugged in for good measure, but your PSP is fine.

Many products ship with a completely discharged battery (many cellphones, for instance) and they must charge for a long time. PSPs don't; they ship with a partially charged battery.
