Power LED comes on, but turns off after 15 secs.
I have a friend's PSP3001 that will not turn on. The battery is charged, and when I turn it on the power LED turns green for 15 seconds and then turns off. The screen doesn't show any signs of powering up, and I cannot hear any sounds from the speaker or the headphone jack. He swears he wasn't trying to change/update the firmware, just hadn't played it in a while and could not get it to turn back on.
Does this sound like bad connections or is it bricked? I was hoping to have some clues before opening it up.
Thank you in advance.
It honestly sounds like its bricked. If it is a bad connection, then you should be able to see it when you open it up. Not having sound, video, or even a boot up (assuming its not bricked) suggests a loose ribbon cable or bad fuse. Let us know what you find when you open it up. :)
