When the psp is plugged into the adaptor does it look like the unit is charging?

if not then the battery could be dead or there is more issues with the psu on the mainboard of the unit.

if it is charging then the chances are its the screen that needs to be replaced

Why when i switch on my psp he cannot read my memory card and he will not turn on?


Hi p_demain,
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, it needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

Psp not getting charged..


If you're able to charge your PSP using the USB cable with it connected to your pc, this lets you know the battery in your PSP is still capable of holding a charge.

If your PSP isn't charging using the power adapter there is a possibility that the adapter has malfunctioned and is not supplying the 5v necessary to charge your PSP.

If you're familiar with the operation of volt meter, you can easily check the output voltage of the power adapter by connecting the negative lead of the volt meter to the exposed metal part of the plug that goes into the PSP and connecting the positive to the positive terminal.

The positive terminal will be more difficult to reach becuause it is located in the center of the plug. You'll need a positive probe that has a small enough diameter to fit inside of the hole.

Theoretically you could put a paper clip inside of the hole and then connect the positive lead to it but if you do, you have to take extra care to make sure you don't let the positive and negative leads touch each other.

A better option would be to take your adapter into a store such as Radio Shack and have them test your adapter for you if you're not familiar with the operation of a volt meter.
