I'm having the same problem.

I'm having the same problem. I fell asleep with my PSP on last night and this morning it had turned itself off. It was on the charger the whole time so the battery shouldn't be drained. Anyway, it wont turn on now. I've taken out and reinserted the battery but I get no power. There is no charge light either when I plug up the adapter.

Any ideas?

That's weird. Did you have

That's weird. Did you have custom firmware? Because you might have bricked it on accident.

If you (or someone who did it

If you (or someone who did it for you) hacked your PSP to run custom firmware, google "PSP Brick Fix". I can tell you for sure you are going to need a "Pandora Battery" (google for instructions) and "Magic Memory Stick" making program (again google).

If your PSP is running boring Sony firmware (no hacks), then the only thing I can think of either the battery got overheated and it fried the board, or when you updated the firmware something happened to the battery/AC power and it stopped in the middle of updating, bricking the PSP.

I'm probably going to write an article on how to put custom firmware on PSPs (and methods of fixing any bricked normal PSPs) here soon, once I get some free time. Feel free to Message my account here and I'll try to help you out to the best of my knowledge.

It died, or it stopped

It died, or it stopped working because the charger was fried?

It was off for a few days, and when I tried to turn it on it didn't want to turn on again, guess the battery lost the initial charge.

Hmmm, that's actually really weird. Unless your battery was almost dead and you put it into standby, rather than shutting it down, that shouldn't happen after only a few days.

You might wanna invest in a spare battery.

When I was on my psp,my psp

When I was on my psp,my psp had said it was on low batteries.So I went to get the charger and plug it up to the psp.Everything was going okey until it said low batteries again when it was charging.So I checked everything and everything was set up right.So I did the whole process again.Now the charging light would not come back on.What should I do?
