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.
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.
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.
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
