PSP 1000 will not charge or power on with charger

Hi folks

i done a quick google search & couldn't find any real info on this.

i have a psp 1000 & it will not charge the battery or power on with the charger plugged in. it works with a charged battery & the charger works fine on my second psp 1000.

i have installed the USB MOD to see if it will charge by USB but unfortunately nothing :(

i have also changed the yellow power port on the bottom & still nothing.

seeing as the psp has been out for 13 years now i was hoping someone may have a fix for this.

thanks :-)

@therealoctavus Hi!

Just a quick question: does it charge if you install a known-good battery? Does the other (known-good) PSP work with the battery from the PSP you're having problems with? If so, consider replacing the battery.

when i have the charger connected without the battery the psp dose not power on so its not the battery its something to do with the psp itself. the psp came without a battery & i have tried two different batteries


@therealoctavus Have you checked the fuse? Have a look at this post, maybe it helps How to repair my psp when can't on power
