When I plug my PSP in to charge no light comes on and it does not charge (The charger is working and gets warm)

most common problem with the psp not charging is due to the fact that the battery is old and replacing. Although these are rechargeable batteries they do wear out and need replacing. Try with another battery and see if it charges.

My Psp doesn't work. It won't turn on or charge. The last time it was used was when my sis used it. She said it just "died" Pls help, my parents won't send it to repair or use MY OWN money to...

Try replacing your battery with a new (or a working one) one just to see if it's the culprit. OR try another charger.
Remember that tinkering or trying to hack your PSP, especially its firmware might brick your PSP.

My psp wont turn on nor charge. even when i take out the battery and plug in the AC adapter it wont turn on.

hi, your problem could be one of a couple of things now the first and most likely would be that your charger is no longer working so you need to try another charger or try your charger on someone else psp.

the second problem you could have could be that the charging port has come away from the circuit board and if this is the case then you will need to get a new charging port soldered onto your circuit board, this isnt something you can do yourself.

now the third problem you could have is that a part has over heate on the circuit board causing a bad circuit usually the part that fails is just after the charging port so this would need testing to find out the exact cause.

first thing you should try is putting another battery in and see if it will come on with a new battery or try a friends battery in yours, if it comes on then you know the problem is going to be either the charger or the charging port, if after trying another battery it still dont work then the chances are something has over heated and the circuit board will need testing and parts replaced if needed.
the problem with this is it all depends on how much the cost of repair is going to be because it could cost more than a second hand psp.

you could take it into a a computer shop and get a free quote on the cost of repair.

you need to try the battery first try and find someone else who has got a working psp and try their battery in yours and also try their charger on yours just to find out if the charger id the problem, if you try someone elses charger and it dont charge yours up then the problem is going to be the charging port or parts associated with that.

My sony psp go wont charge...

Try a different outlet in the wall, it might be the outlet. If it isn't the outlet, maybe it's the power cord. Try to use someone else's PSP charger and see if it works. If it If it's not that, then it's your PSP. If you had it since launch then it will cost $90 to get fixed.

We cannot get our psp to charge. When we plug it in to the charger, nothing happens

I assume that your battery is good. I would try borrowing someone elses charger to see if that is the problem. Also you could plug your charger into their PSP. This will determine if the charger is the problem. If you still can not charge your PSP, it could be a bad charging jack.
