I hi have my psp and it dont want to charge i take the battery out and put it in my cousin's psp and it charges in his and when it's fully charges it works in mine..... so its not the battery, i...

You did a good job in isolating the problem. It does seem that your Power charger port is the culprit. I had the same problem with my unit. What I initially did was I applied slight pressure using my finger pushing the adapter plug in the direction of the start button. Apparently, there was a slight gap between connector inside the PSP charger port and the outside part of the adapter plug. Eventually, I added a small layer of solder to one side of the upper part of the charger plug ( near the top part which is colored yellow ). Dont put too much solder, doing so will cause the adapter plug to not fit inside the port. That fixed the problem for me. !!!As a reminder, please do this if you are experienced in using soldering tools !!!!
If your unit is still under warranty, I suggest you let the Sony Technicians fix it for you.
I hope everything works out. All the best to you.

I plug my psp to charge but it wont and wont turn on

This type of problem is often associated with the battery or battery terminals. The problem can be one of two things.
Firstly, you may want to consider for how long this psp has been in use. If it has been in use for quite a long time, the battery could have exceeded its lifespan and has become completely weak that it cannot even retain charge or even charge in order to power up the device for some time before going flat again. This is really not likely to be the cause in respect with the symptoms provided by you.
Secondly and most likely, the psp might be having a battery terminal problem. The battery terminals are the golden points that the battery comes in contact with on the inside surface of the battery compartment at the back of the game. One of these points or terminals may be making a partial contact or may have broken inside the panel. As a result, it cannot even detect the power coming from the battery to power the device. In the same way, it cannot deliver the power back to the battery whilst it is been charged.
This is most likely the reason because if the battery is only dead, the lights indicator would still come on when you plug it to charge.
The only few things you can do at home is to try and clean the surface of the battery that comes in contact with the terminal. The same way, you are to clean the terminals with soft cloth and little methylated spirit. Do not use methylated spirit on the battery.
If that doesn't work, you have to see a repairer as it is an internal problem.
Hope this helped? Please comment for more information

I have a psp and i dont know if the psp is broken or is it my charger or battery please help!!!!!!! sony model psp-110 battery pack 3.6

Solution 1: Try to borrow from your friend psp charger and charge it if charging. this maybe the problem.

Solution 2. Try to borrow replace the battery if it will charge. This may be the problem.

Otherwise the problem would be the psp unit itself that you are using while at battery charging. Hence your are playing and moving, you have tendency to damage the charging port of your psp. This maybe the problem and need replacement of parts.

My psp wont turn on nor charge. even when i take out the battery and plug in the AC adapter it wont turn on.

hi, your problem could be one of a couple of things now the first and most likely would be that your charger is no longer working so you need to try another charger or try your charger on someone else psp.

the second problem you could have could be that the charging port has come away from the circuit board and if this is the case then you will need to get a new charging port soldered onto your circuit board, this isnt something you can do yourself.

now the third problem you could have is that a part has over heate on the circuit board causing a bad circuit usually the part that fails is just after the charging port so this would need testing to find out the exact cause.

first thing you should try is putting another battery in and see if it will come on with a new battery or try a friends battery in yours, if it comes on then you know the problem is going to be either the charger or the charging port, if after trying another battery it still dont work then the chances are something has over heated and the circuit board will need testing and parts replaced if needed.
the problem with this is it all depends on how much the cost of repair is going to be because it could cost more than a second hand psp.

you could take it into a a computer shop and get a free quote on the cost of repair.

you need to try the battery first try and find someone else who has got a working psp and try their battery in yours and also try their charger on yours just to find out if the charger id the problem, if you try someone elses charger and it dont charge yours up then the problem is going to be the charging port or parts associated with that.

My psp wont charge

This could be a number of things. First it could be your battery is shot, which is caused by overcharging or that it has been overused or old, next it could be that your charging cable is shot, lastly it could be that the charging port was loosened by dropping the psp or by yanking out the cord too hard.

Charge light orang on for a second and turn off unit not charged.

This kind of problem is usually caused by either of this 3 things: Either the problem is the battery not being able to charge anymore(bettery would need to be replaced), or the charger does not give any charge to the batter(recommend try another charger), or last would be the console charger port( would need to replace console, or repair charger por,not recommended)

Wii charger not charging

problem is either one battery is discharged and the other is full or corrosion on battery terminal tops or batteries are defective. the red lights flash when the unit sences that the batteries have a problem with the induction charge. simple test is to using a meter measure the batteries or discharge the unit with a wire and a 2.2 volt bulb (flashlight bulb) once discharged, unplug the charger unit for over 10 secs to reset it. then plug it in and try the batteries in the packs again. if still inop then they are done for.
