Well its ether one of two(maybe both)

1. you port is bad, depending on how long you have had the psp the port can get worn out. try blowing on it or buying a new port then replacing it.

2. The battery is bad. the battery can be shorted out. ether replace it with a known working battery or buy another

From experience I say its the battery but for my brother it was the port.

This is old, I know, but there seem to be other issues as well. My Port is clearly fine (measured if it provides power to the board and it does, battery is new. Still no luck.

my experience says you need a new battery. there is a chip inside where software will allow the PSP to run. Hence why people use Pandora Batteries to hack the PSPs

see if u have a friend that will let you borrow their battery before you purchase one, that will be appropiate.
