the FAT psp wont charge through the USB connection.

you can buy PSP data / charge cables : http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2-in-1-Charge...yZ127744QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

but obviously the charge cable plugs into the AC socket.....

why wont the battery charge? is it the charger itself that's buggered or the battery thats had it?

take the battery out and plug the AC adaptor in and turn the PSP on.
if it turns on without the battery then the AC adaptor must be working.

i had this on my battery.

you need to totally drain the battery, so what i did was get 2 wires, thin as kynar wire, and stick them in teh 2 battery slits + and - and with the other 2 ends, i stuck a car 5w side light bulb and let the bulm illuminate and drain battery for 24 hours.

stuck battery in psp and charged it, been perfect ever since.

If its not working with the ac adaptor plugged in, then I would suggest that the charger is goosed.

Not sure of what to suggest nap. Aint used one to be honest. Best thing, and easiest thing, is to buy another one, and return the faulty one.

hi m8, try what i said above. http://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/showpost.php?p=1302502&postcount=5

the battery has a brain, and sometime it's brain messes up, and it thinks that whatever charge is in the battery at a given point, is its fully charged capacity, even though it might be 5% charged, the battery thinks it is 100% and then does not continue to charge any further.

if you need to borrow mine i can lend it you (battery, not brain) but do what i did and tottally drain battery, and your battery will come back to life. or send it me, and i will try it for you.
