Your problem is obviously not the power cord. Its the powerjack(the port on the psp where you plug in the cord)You will need to take apart the PSP and check if the jack is a toast or developed a dry-solder(loose contact). Also look for any burnt capacitors and resistors. Shouldn't be a very difficult repair unless you are rookie. If you have problems determining the values of caps or resistors then do post back..

Regards,
Sai.

My psp wont turn on. the amber chargeing light is on, even left for a few hours to charge still wont charge and replaced the battery.


Hi there!
When you charge your PSP with the charger (USB/wall) does the power light turn to amber? If it does not, It's possible that your charger (USB/wall) is already broken. You may need to purchase a new one.
If it does, you may have either a loose power switch (which happens on my PSP Go) or you may need to have your unit checked with a qualified technician.
Hope this helps!

Will not turn on?The power light will not even come on.


Hi!

You can try this, change the battery & see if it will turn on & if it does then the problem is on the battery. Another thing is try charging the PSP into a computer using the USB cable, if it charges then the problem is the charger.
If the 2 solutions does not work you might want to replace the motherboard on your PSP cause definitely it is a power supply problem.
Hope that help!

Psp wont charge


You might have overcharged your PSP or blown it up a little. I would recommend going to GameStop and getting a new battery to see if that doesn't solve your problem.

Thanks,

Psp distortion


HI Alici,

 

This can be repaired, however, it will require a purchase of a new LCD screen, and possibly a new shell. I repair this kind of thing at my home.  I run the Playstation Clinic and charge reasonable prices to repair Video game consoles and DVD players.  All together I can replace both the LCD and face cover including return shipping will be $80.  This repair should only be done by a experienced Repair service.  Even knowledgeable repair people that have never disassembled a PSP can damage the psp so badly it will require the replacement of the motherboard as well, if not done properly.  The motherboard costs about $100.  If your willing to get it repaired you can contact me at Repairtech@Playstationclinic.com.  We specialize in PSP repairs.  90 day warranty! The price above is only adding $25 Labor for up to 3 hours of work. Shipping will be about $5.  The LCD screen is about $30, and the cover is about $20. So your Repair would be either $60 or $80 depending on what parts are needed.
