WON'T RECHARGE When we plug in the psp to charge, the yellow light goes on. After about 3 minutes the light goes out. The PSP will turn on for about 2 seconds and then it goes dead. I just bought a new battery and put it in.

How do i charge my psp battery


Plug the charger into the wall. Plug the other end into the spot on the PSP with the yellow outline. Check for an orange light. If it's on, let it charge until the light turns off. It it's not on check connection. If it's still no charging, take out the battery and put it back in. If it's still not charging remove the battery and try to turn it on. If it will no start, your PSP is bricked.

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.

My psp wont charge


The psp isn't made to charge from usb by default, if you see that small yellow plug in on the either the side or the bottom, you should have a ac adaptor that came with it to plug in there.

PSP cannot turn on


keeping Lithium ion batteries(found in ur psp) idle for such a long time without charging may discharge them compleatly and even if you try to charge them they will not function. this seems to be a problem with your battries not ur PSP. try to get it replaced from the dealer you bought the PSP from. hope this solves your problem.. :D

Power Problem with my psp


Make sure the plug is all the way in the socket, and make sure it's plugged into an outlet. If those are bouth done. Are you sure it only charges for the 3 minutes? maybe it's full by the time th elight goes off. Uhhh I'd say it's probably something wrong with either the things connecting the battery to the PSP or, the female end of the power connector. Damn females always messing things up.

PSP CHARGING PROBLEMS


The way to properly break in a lithium Ion battery is to run it dead before you recharge it. Then fully recharge it and run it until it's dead again. Do this about 3-5 times and then the battery is properly broken in. If you charge it before it dies on a new battery you can build what they call a "memory" where the battery thinks it's fully charged however it's only maybe half charged and you will lose alot of life out of your battery. So make sure you properly break it in.
