Disconnect the charging cable, replace the batteries, if this doesn't work, try a new charger, if neither option works, send the unit into a certified Sony repairman

To check to see if the PSP is in working condition, while trying to charge verify that the power light on the device is green.

If your PSP doesn't charge, check your power cord to make sure there isn't a fault or a train in the wire that you plug into an outlet.

At first while charging, you check whether the power light device is green. Also check power chord to make sure there is not fault in the wire. If it doesn't work, that means there is problem with your battery. Remove the battery and connect the device to power and check. Replace the battery.

If your Sony PSP won't charge, you have a problem with your battery. The batteries tend to wear out after about two years, even faster if you use it often. You can purchase a Sony replacement for about $50 or a generic brand for half that. Wal-Mart has a good selection.

Your PSP battery has become worn, either the amount of use you've given it or what- but you need a new one.

That means there is a problem with the charging source. Consider purchasing another and seeing if that works. If that doesn't work than it is your battery pack.

You should check to see if the battery is no longer working by replacing it with a working one. Also, try replacing the power cord.

If your Sony PSP will not charge, then it either has something to do with your charger not working properly, or you need a new battery for your PSP.


Answer by  Aaron12 (70)

First off you should check the charger, wiggle it around to see if there maybe is a short in the wire.
