    My son's psp won't turn on too : the light turn on and went back off

  • wandalk78 Jun 30, 2008

    No I had the PSP in my posession and he did not break it. He is actually really good with his electonics. Believe me if he broke it , he would tell me, so I could get it fixed.



    It just won't turn on, just stays on the RED light when charging and never turns on.



    Any suggestions???

    ask your son if he tried to downgrade his psp.

    If he did there is a chance he messed up and might have bricked the psp.

Not charging and will not turn on


My son's PSP 2001 had the same problem if it was not in a hard case--the battery wouldn't charge and the PSP would not turn on. All we could figure was that something inside the battery area was loose and the snap-on case held the battery in place better. Try putting the battery in and holding the battery cover on firmly with your hand. If it charges and/or turns on while you're holding it like that, you might want to buy a case to sort of hold it together better. I think they loosen up over time and useage.

I plug in to AC charge for the whole day and try to turnon, with switch on the right hand side, nothing happened


On the occasion it won't chrage the PSP. You should double check that it is charging it. Also, try to see if it'll turn on while plugged in. If it turns on, let it charge, if it doesn't either the battery is shot or the plug-in spot is broken or not responsive.

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...


Hi,
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.

Was just wondering I charged my sons psp on the computer but didnt dial down the power so now it wont turn on did i just fry the battery or the whole machine?? thanx S


the computer probably wont supply enough power to charge the PSP, just plug it in to the charger and leave it for 20 minutes and it will power up

PSP won't come on.


yes. the problem here is that adaptors dont convert voltage. so when you put the psp on charge in ireland it must have fried the circuits so that they wouldn't work. this means that the psp is ruined
sorry to be the one to tell you
