PSP Fix, Need Help
I recently aquired a broken PSP 1000 as sort of a challenge to myself. Now however, I actually want it to
work. I need some help with the fix, so here are the problems I have been able to identify:
-PSP won't always charge, I strongly believe it is the battery though. When I tilt the PSP around at
different angles, it will charge. Also, fiddling with the battery makes it charge.
-PSP won't tun on. I have checked the power fuse, and it was burned out. I placed a jumper across it like
so many internet guides say, and it now has continuity. When I hold the power switch, the PSP will do
one of two things:
1. The light will turn off, and then turn back to solid orange (charging)
2. The light will turn green for about 0.5 to 1 second, and then turn off
-PSP will make a rythmic clicking when not charging, doesn't seem to be a problem though.
-Battery is cracked, and I don't know if it works properly because it won't maintain proper contact with
I have also checked the backlight and USB fuses, they both have continuity so I'm not worried about
fixing them. Right now I would just like it to turn on. If anyone knows anything, please make a comment,
perhaps someone else has this problem.
P.S. What is a pandora battery? I keep hearing about those, what do they do? Also, what exactly
signifies a "bricked" PSP?
I had a friend test the battery, he said the battery works and he charged it for me. Now the PSP
turns on. But, (there's always a but) there is no activity on the LCD. I tried bridging the backlight
fuse with tweezers to see if the fuse was the problem, no luck. So what now? All I have learned is
that the charge circuit doesn't work and that the PSP turns on with no activity. I held a white LED
flashlight up to the screen, but I didn't see anything. any suggestions?
