Psp Phat not charging, does turn on.
Hello, was playing my psp in bed last night when i suddenly noticed it wasn't charging.
it still works, but the battery is at one bar now.
i took out the battery, charger plugged in, doesn't turn on.
it didn't fall anytime in the last 2years.
what can i do?
is there a way to determine if its the charger cable or the psp itself?
If you have a voltmeter, you can test the charger make sure it is outputing at least 5 volts.
But from my repair experience, 90% of the time, it is the small fuse inside the PSP next to the charger plug.
Sadly you have to open the machine, and to replace it you need a nice small soldering iron, and replacement fuse.
Bah humbug. thanks for the info mate. really annoying how it can just go poof without any provocation.
