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.

    You most likely blew one of 2 fuses on the mainboard. They are small surface mount circuits that have 1A next to them or some other number and an "A" for amp. Put a small blob of solder on top and they will work again but will no longer offer protection, a moot point as when these blow, 99% of the people toss the board anyway.

My psp wont chards how can i do


if it wont charge try another charger to first rule out your charger for faults then try another battery if it is a psp 3001 and still has enough battery to turn on switch it to usb charge and try that its possible that they have a separate charging circuit allowing you to bypass a potential fried charge circuit ps when they fully lose charge usb charging isn't possible ok
