More than likely your charger is broken. If the charger has any lights on it, see if they turn on when the charger is plugged into an outlet. If the lights don't turn on, try another outlet. If the lights still won't come on, you need a new charger.

If the lights work, or your charger doesn't have any try using a different charger and see if the PSP will charge. If not, then the actual connection within your PSP is shot, or there was a short in your system.

I can't find where is the option for usb charge in settings-system settings.... I need to charge my psp with an usb cable, what to do?

didnt i already try to answer this, gosh ok man if you have a 1000[phat psp's] it doesnt have a usb charge option

so since your not telling me ehat version you have, its in system settings and if it not there for your 2000 or 3000 psp it could be the firmware,

so make sure your looking correctly, look in system settings and its one of the top options called usb charge set to on,

now if its not there then check on the bottom of your psp where theres a barcode sticker, if you see PSP-1000 then you cant recharge it cause it doesnt have the feature

I am not able to start my PSP 3000 I am using a usb cord to charge the PSP, I am getting the hold light however not getting the power on please assist

When you connect the PSP via the USB, does the orange light power on? If you are using the standard USB cable and attached to the top of the PSP, from experience, it needs at least to have a little amount of battery power. If not, it will not totally power on or charge. You need the A/C adapter to charge the battery pack.

I can charge my PSP through USB cable even if its powered off. I'm using this one:

My PSP won't recognize the games/videos/music that I've downloaded from my PC. I tried to reformat the mem card and restore settings but still is the same.. It says, there are no games.. Help

okay.. what version is the psp? is it a 1000, 2000, or 3000? (it will tell you under the psp, next to where you plug it in to charge on the upc) at the end it will say psp(1, 2, or 3001) my psp 1000 did the same thing...

its either the spinner in the psp itself is to blame, or the circular peice in the umd is loose... or it could just be the lens is dirty...

umm try cleaning the lens, if that doesnt help, and its under warranty, take it back.. if it isnt, then take it into the repairman
