    I have a PSP-1001 with custom FW that won't turn on. Power light does not light up.

    When I plug my AC adapter in (Battery in or out.), nothing happens. Power light does not come on.

    When I swap the battery with my Pandora battery still nothing happens. No power light. I'm pretty sure the Pandora battery has a charge because I have only used it once.

    This PSP has not been used in years, however this started before it was put away.

    I tested the AC adapter with a different device and it works fine.

    The build quality of the PSP 1k was pretty poor, it may be corroded contacts or a thousand more things.

    I had an early PSP and the whole Pandora battery trick completely screwed it up. That might be what's happened your end too? If it doesn't turn on with the mains adapter and no battery in, I think it's probably time to bin it or ebay it for spare parts.

    When you screw it up while trying to install CFW the power light still turns on.

    Yeah, I gave up on that PSP a long time ago. I've got it sitting in a box somewhere. I'll prolly throw it on ebay.

    No, it doesn't. If the battery was dead the PSP would still work with the AC addapter plugged in.
