Well i waz installing an update and i took the ac charger out and all of a sudden it froze and not when i try to cut my psp go on the light cme on green but the screen stays black and it can charge


It clearly says on the downloading screen that you must not turn off the PSP, disconnect the AC charger (if connected), or put the PSP in sleep mode. Pretty much leave it alone when you download it. To reset the PSP, you can take out the battery and put it back in and it should work again. Then re-download the update.

It froze and asked for assistance. i couldnt turn it off so i let the battery died. then i tried charging it and it wouldnt charge or turn on


Greetings,

This may be that your battery has expired. The only way to fix this would be to purchase a new psp battery. Here is the link to get a new battery: Link
The battery can also be purchased at Best Buy, Walmart, Gamestop, and Fred Meyer.

Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.

My PSP will not turn on unless it is plugged into the outlet. When I try to turn it on by itself the power light flickers green for two seconds and then disappears. Also, the battery is fully charged. When...


replace the battery as it may be out of CYCLES even tho it says its fully charged if the battry is new your going to need a new element inside usually this consist of a new logic board under the battery pack.


good luck

Replace the AC adapter. it may haved taken a surge over night. If this does fix the problem then the powerborad needs to be replaced. Your parts can be ordered from risingsonltd.com

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 will not turn on


Have you tried ejecting your battery pack? I've had a problem like this. But I don't recall the green light coming on for 15 seconds. Anyway, try ejecting the battery pack and putting it back in. If that doesn't work, then... I tried.

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.
