    Hello,

    I have two different chargers and both doesn't work, so i know its the psp itself, like i try to turn on the psp and no light whatsoever so it might not be bricked, so is there a way to find out?

    Only thing i know so far is that, my friend tried to force a AC adapter into the psp and then all of sudden it won't charge. so since it don't charge i'm guessing thats why i cannot turn on the psp because the battery is dead.

    so does anyone know what might be going on?

    thanks

    Check if your battery is in properly. If that doesn't work then you psp is messed up. Oh and one more thing like the dude above my post said you should get a new batter or borrow someone elses battery to see if its the battery. Take out the batter and check if there is anything blocking it.

    ok, i just found out that, he fried the power circuit or soemthing like that, he told me that he has one of those ac adapter where u can set the volt and he set it too high and then frying it.

    does that help?

    with the battery thing, i'ma tried that later tonight. i just wanted to see what i had to order off teh web.

    Well I got no clue what happened but how would set the volts up so high your stupid friend should read what the psp charger says before he heightens the volts.

    I'm not 100% sure but, the only difference is the color. Also what motherboard do you have? I don't know if we need to know what you motherboard is but maybe some people need to know the piece of info. (I don't know if we need to know you mother board but just display it here)

    maybe when he tried that ac charger you said about, he did some physical damage to the PSP connection where the charger should go
