PSP 1000 seems to charge but won't turn on.

A customer brought in a PSP 1K that I’ve been having trouble with. When the AC adapter is plugged in the orange light comes on to indicate that it is charging, but it will not turn on at all. I’ve tried powering it on with battery and no AC, with AC and no battery, and with both together. Cleaned power switch internals, tried swapping the power switch daughterboard, and of course swapped out the battery. Any ideas? I’ve heard this is a common problem, but I still can’t find any actual solutions online.


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Update: if anyone has this problem; in my case through process of elimination I was able to narrow it down to the motherboard. Did a quick skim and didn’t see any obvious problems with the motherboard, so I just replaced it to save the customer time and money since these things are from 2005 and not worth much, and I already had a replacement motherboard in stock.
