Either that or it is bricked, to unbrick it you need to buy a Pandora Battery and Memory Stick and reflash the PSP in service mode

Try replacing the battery. Alot of times when anything thats rechargeable have not been recharged for that long then the battery cells weaken to the point it won't hold a charge. GOOD LUCK!!!

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

Cracked psp screen


Youll have to open it up and look if the screen is cracked or the cover, the screen is behind the clear perspex of the outer case.
If its the screen then this will help:

Psp doesn't want to turn on


The polarity of the charger you used is wrong or the wrong voltage, and has messed up the programming n the battery.  You may be lucky if you get a new battery and use the Right charger, It might fix it.  Sony put a battery in the PSP that has a memory chip in it, and I think it will automatically disconnect if the wrong vooltage hits it, or wrong polarity. be warned that I have seen where someone got a new battery and it did not solve the problem. If this happens to you Contact Sony at the following number.

Battery Or Charging Problem.


Have you updated your firmware recently? Check your PSP to make sure there aren't any loose connections. If you're comfortable with it, you could open it up and make sure the plug for the charger didn't come loose somewhere. It may just need a touch of solder to put it back into place.
