    same thing happened to me, i went back to woolworths, they contacted sony, and i sent it in the post to their factory. I havent recieved my new one yet. If its not underwarrenty, buy and emergancy one in any video game store...

    not unless you open it up, maybe the fuse has blown. Anyway if u did open it up it would void your warrenty.

    no i didnt open it up but i did get custom firmware which does void my warrenty.....
    could it be the charger at all?

    No, i mean if you open the charger up, then it will void your warrenty for the charger (1 year). I sent my charger back only because i said my psp was "personalised".

    could it be that the chargeing port for the psp is broken?
    can it be fixed?
    i dont want to send the psp back because i have 3.03 oe c and i dont want the newer version that isnt capable of homebrew

    yes the warrenty does cover the charger too. I took mine back to the store and they said you cant just replace the charger you have to replace the psp too. So they contacted sony for me and i have sent the charger only to their adress.

    Arghhhh DUDE LISTEN.


    I sent the CHARGER ON ITS OWN WITHOUT THE PSP BACK TO SONY. i doubt it is your psps port, i am lucky that i have a usb that has a charger on it too.

    Go to your store and ask if you can contact sony to get a REPLACEMENT CHARGER ONLY

    sorry if i sound harsh just trying to get the message across.

    dude the risks of bricking during downgrade are really slim, you were probably a noob the first time you did it ;)
