If it's under warranty send it back, if it's not then do this. Order a replacement power switch online, ebay is pretty good for psp parts. There's 5 screws holding the front cover of the PSP together two on the right that are recessed, you'll need a long skinny precision screwdriver , there's two more under the warranty stick behind the battery and one more in the middle of the silver metal piece. The power stick assembly is a separate board that plugs into the psp and a easy repair. Just be careful once you remove the faceplate one dust particle and you'll be taking it apart again to clean the inside of the screen.

Just quit. Worked fine one day. Next day went to turn it on and nothing happened. Fan is little over a year old.


Control switch, circuit breaker, or loose wire are main suspect.
Rarely does a motor just stop working.

Check circuit breaker.
Open control switch and test for power and check for loose connections.
Install ordinary on-off switch and see if function resumes.
Check wire connections at fan.

PSP BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON NOTHING ELSE


with the PSP being dropped, keep in mind that you might have a cracked board. Best thing to do if you have the tools is to open it and see if there are any cracks in the board, if there isnt' then look for loose cables and reseat them and see what happens.

If you still can't get the psp to turn on then the board is still bad and would need to be replaced or to get a new PSP.

I have a sony 2001 PSP, and I've had it for less than a month and just recently I tried to use it, when i attempt to turn it on I press the power button and the green light (which shows that the PSP is on)...


For how long have you NOT been using your PSP? and did anything happen before you even tried using it AGAIN? Do you have others in your area who has a PSP? if nothing happened to your psp before you tried using it again e.g.accidentally fell or something like that, then just try to use a different WORKING psp battery...if it didn't work, then prolly your PSP went brick and the only solution for that is a pandora kit...

Sound like a major hardware problem. Check on your warranty and see if it's covered. Otherwise you might be out of luck.

Power problems


Hi Gohan102,

 

Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....
