Check the battery holder.Sometimes the battery holder can cause that problem.If you replaced your battery door make sure the new one have a little pad inside or the battery can get loose.
If this one don`t solve your problem try to upgrade the firmware.May be is a bug in the Firmware

When i turn on my psp the green light will come on but the screen won't come on and then a few seconds later the green light will shut off completely.


Hi tokyo_grl,
First you have to figure out what is causing the problem. Try the following steps.

1. Remove anything that is connected to the PSP, including the
Memory Stick, battery and any UMD games.
2. Plug the charger into both the wall and the PSP system, then wait for at least 30 seconds before turning the psp on.
--If the PSP turns on, your problem is not with your PSP, but with an accessory that was previously attached.If it does not turn on, your PSP is in need of a repair.
3. Next, unplug the power adapter from the PSP, and firmly place the battery into the PSP.
4. Plug in the Power Adapter once again, and wait at least 30 minutes for the PSP to begin charging, then try and power on the PSP system.
--If the PSP does not power on with the battery plugged in, but it did with just the charger, you need a new battery. If it powers on, do the next step.
5. Place the Memory Stick inside the PSP , and turn on the power. If the PSP does not turn on, but it turned on without the memory, you need a new memory stick.

If your PSP did not turn on during step 2, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

I charged my psp for atleast 5 hours.....but charge ended within 1 hour......what to do??


I'm just restating what you said here first...

You plugged in your psp for 5 hours.
You took it out.
You played it for 1 hour before it turned off...

If this is true, it seems that your battery just can't hold a charge. One solution would be to just buy a replacement battery, but you could try this...

Drain your psp completely. This means keeping it on until it turns off, then turn it on again, leave until off and so on. Just keep turning it on until it stays on for less than a minute.
Charge your battery overnight.

Hope this helps!!!

Psp will shut off in 5 minutes


could be a faulty battery.

they just use a NMH type battery similar to a cell phone, and they DO die occasionally, or if its been used a lot and not charged properly.
you can buy replacements from gaming stores, and from online auction sites. they go from US$10 to US$25 so shop around for a good price.

It could even be your PSP wall charger that isnt delivering enough juice to the battery?

PSP Charging problem


TEST : Take battery out. Plug in to wall. Wait 30+ secs with psp on. if the power turns off, then its the adapter which is broken, which costs about 5$

OTHERWISE:

Your battery needs to be changed. Standard flavor costs bout 8$, extra long lasting spicy flavor costs 16$. (lol, chips)

Seriousley though, after some time, wear, and in some cases, temp. changes, the battery can become so weak, that it will only hold about a 5 second charge. Once you get less than 1 hour play time W/O charger, need to get a new battery.

Check to make sure the battery is charged. If the battery is low or almost out, it'll start & shut off like this.
