Had this problem in the past where the psp would not turn on. Had to do a hard reboot with my other son's psp battery in place and it worked. Bought a new battery and everything was fine until it needed to be charged again. Psp won't turn on when plugged in or with either battery. NOthing works! Help! Sue

Re: Psp won't turn on
Call sony this is the best way to get it fixed the reason being is that most technicians cannot fix some issues that can pop up in these systems and if you do use a third party sony cannot fix any issue the third party cannot fix

My son's PSP 2001 had the same problem if it was not in a hard case--the battery wouldn't charge and the PSP would not turn on. All we could figure was that something inside the battery area was loose and the snap-on case held the battery in place better. Try putting the battery in and holding the battery cover on firmly with your hand. If it charges and/or turns on while you're holding it like that, you might want to buy a case to sort of hold it together better. I think they loosen up over time and useage.
You can try a hard reset. Do this hold the power switch in the upward position for over 10 seconds. This will cause the machine to reboot. Leave it alone for a few minutes then try switching it back on. You may have to flick the switch on twice to start her up again.
If it still has a hard time try changing the battery for the one in your sons machine.
MAKE SURE that all apps etc are closed on the PSP first and do the hard reset BEFORE you remove the battery on BOTH machines. Ensure PSP is OFF before removing battery. It is possible the battery has been overcharged or just given up. If the console operates with the other battery you know you need get a fresh one. Consider getting a high power one for extended life.
Let us know how you get on. May have more info for you.
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, your PSP is bricked and indeed needs to be repaired by a qualified technician. I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.
You can downgrade your psp without a pandora battery but you will need a Lumines game hack,Follow these steps to do so.
Download the 5.50.pbp file. Rename the 5.50.pbp file to "UPDATE.PBP." Connect your PSP to your computer with the USB cable and select "USB Connection" to place the PSP into USB mode. A window will appear on your computer and you will be able to see the PSP memory stick files.
Download the downgrade pack. Open the "MS_ROOT" folder from the downgrade pack. Right-click the "PSP" folder and click "Copy." Go back to the PSP memory stick and right-click it. Click "Paste" and "Yes" to overwrite the data.
Right-click the UPDATE.PBP file that you downloaded in step one and click "Copy." Open the "PSP" folder on the PSP memory stick and you will see the "GAME" folder. Open this folder to reveal the "UPDATE" folder. Right-click the "UPDATE" folder and click "Paste" to transfer the update file to your PSP memory stick. The downgrade pack and 5.50 update file are on the PSP memory stick. Press the "O" button to safely disconnect the PSP from your computer.
Insert the Lumines PSP game into the PSP drive. Select the game from the PSP menu to start. Press the "Start" button when you get to the Lumines start screen. Your screen will blink red and will turn completely blue. You will be brought back to the PSP screen. It is important to not press any buttons before you get to the Lumines start screen.
Go to the game section of the PSP menu and you will now be able to see the "x.yz update" application. Select it with the "X" button to start it. Press the "X button from the main menu to start the downgrading process. Press "X" again to reboot the PSP when the downgrade has completed. You have now downgraded your PSP to 5.50 firmware.
try rebooting it
and if your sons psp had been fallen anywhere when he was playing then there maybe a chance hardware or battery small chip was bolted
if this doesnt work go anfd look inn sony showroom and show them this problem
For this u got to reset ur psp. The easiest way to reset the PSP is to do a hard-reset. This means holding the power switch in the up position for around ten seconds. This will then shut off the PSP. You may then need to flick the power button either once or twice for the device to come back on. The hard reset method is normally sufficient to bring the PSP back to life and resume use, although it may mean you lose your place in the game you were playing. The alternative to the hard reset is to drop the battery out of the PSP. While I don’t really recommend this, sometimes a hard-reset will fail and this is your only option. To do this, simply drop the battery out of the PSP by sliding the cover open, and then wait for a few seconds. Pop the battery back in and fire up the PSP. Hopefully all will be well. cheers
Remove the battery for 15 minutes, connect the AC Adapter and install the battery again. It that doesn't work, remove the battery again, wait 15 minutes, install it and plug the AC Adapter. It's a weird problem but in my PSP i get around that way.
it probably froze try and remove battery. if that dont work turn it on and wait a second then hold the power switch in the off position but do not let go until it turns off that should completey restart it.
