My PSP isn't turning on. By this i mean that the green light isn't even come on. When the battery is in and i plug in the charger it goes orange, and when i try to switch on, it isn't. But it still stays orange. When i take out the battery though and plug in the charger no light comes on...

I have never had this problem before, and does anyone know the solutions. Please help!!

I had a similar problem. I turned my psp on one time and the green light flashed and turned off. I charged it and tried again. Of course I thought I would have to send it in. Luckly it worked the next day.

If your sure it doesnt work, then sending it in is your best bet. Umm my mate got a refirbished psp for £60 as his went on the fritz as well. So yeah, it'll cost.

Try taking the battery out for a minute. That should power down the PSP and reset it. Then pop the battery back in and see if it'll work.

i would try getting a new battery. I dont think you can run the psp w/o a good battery. i wouldnt think there would be software issue if the green light isnt coming on. sounds like hardware. but it could just be the battery is bad........ thats the cheapest solution. you can get a used battery for the psp cheap too. the new (but now discontinued) bigger ones are only like $45 too.
