PSP working with power supply but functioning batteries not detected

Hi,

I am experiencing a weird issue on my PSP 2006 and I wonder if any one got an answer for that. I am trying my luck as I could not find such existing thread online (yet)! Basically, the PSP do not recognize batteries, which are proven to work on another PSPs, though PSP works when connected to wall socket.

Well, in nutshell:

- PSP works while connected to power outlet

- PSP does not even start when on battery.

- When plugged in with battery, if I disconnect the power supply cable, PSP will turn off immediately

- When plugged in with battery, the battery indicator at the top right of the screen shows 3 bars and disappears alternatingly every 5 seconds or so.

- When plugged in with battery, when going to the battery info menu it does not disclose the details (dashes) and power source shows as "Exernal"

- The PSP battery port (3 pins) looks just fine.

- I have contacted a PSP repair shop but they mentioned it could be a mobo issue which they are not exactly handling...

Where could the issue come from?

Thanks in advance !

Any idea?

Thanks!

Is there an answer why did this thing happened in the first place? What is the cause of it? It’s perfectly fine then suddenly became like this.

If any, how can we avoid this from happening?

Anyone have an idea?

I have same Problem in psp3000. And I test the voltage between t pin and positive. It’s not stable. I re-soldering the power management ic on mb solved the problem temporarily. Some hours later, the battery will be not detected.

@Xin CHEN Hi Xin Chen, I also tested the voltage with the multimeter, it is pretty unstable on my side too. Are you referring to the power IC or the power switch board? Have you managed to solve the problem already? Thank you.

Sounds like this may be a battery issue. A battery replacement is inexpensive and a good place to start.

Next step is indeed a motherboard replacement.

Thanks a lot for your answer. In this case it may be a MB failure because I have tested with quite a few batteries already without success. I may also check the charging fuse as it sits between the battery and the MB...

I'm also encountering this issue on my TA-095 PSP 3006.

Batteries are working on other PSPs but not on mine. It is only powered by AC.

Olivier have you found a fix?

I have the same exact problem with the PSP -3006. I bought already 2 batteries, which are perfectly working fine on other PSPs. Have you already found the cause of this problem? So I can tell exactly my repair man what's going on.

Answer.

Bad battery. Using ptest in battery test.

In a couple miminutes a couple battery charge wonderfully but not as detectable as posible. .

In my case I had used faulty 2 in one USB/power supply cable from geek.com. I noticed the psp charging light turned off 2s after I plugged it and that was it... As if it was not enough I hadn't noticed the issue at first and connected the cable to charge another PSP which as a result got the same problem... We have to be careful about cheap items from the internet!

Also, it seem that it could be due to using USB to DC cables on the PSP. I have used them over time because they are more convenient to use than the old bulky 5V PSP charger, and allow using phone chargers instead. The reality is, voltage might be slightly different.

For a fact, I have tested the PSP charger, that delivers 5.3V. A phone charger hardly delivers 5V (or less) most of the time. Though I wouldn't think that would spoil a PSP overnight I believe that it might be related to some extent. Could anyone confirm this?

Edit: I haven't observed such issue with PSP-1000 so far which may come with higher tolerance or more sturdy IC/components that 2000/3000 versions...

I have made use of “ptest” (thanks Amir) and have been able to find interesting results…

Test has been performed on the following devices using the SAME battery:

  • 2x PSP 2000’s presenting the issue (PSP works like a charm when connected to power supply BUT battery would neither function nor be detected in any way)

Block Image

  • 1x PSP 3000’s not presenting the issue (battery detected and working)

As you can see from above screenshots, in the case of the 2x PSP 2000’s, there is a battery detected and even charging, but communication between battery and device fails to establish. In this case, battery won’t be able to power the PSP. That may confirm a mobo/IC issue… perhaps the “charging IC” as shown on the pic below:

Please let me know your thoughts if any, or if you’ve come across similar experience, comments would be highly appreciated!! :)

Hi Guys, have you get the chance to fix it ? I have exactly the same problem. I also noticed that if I start the PSP with charger and then I unplug it, the PSP works until I move it a bit. The Battery icon disappear and the PSP goes off (like a fake contact).

Omg, @groliv . I have bought a battery from a Chinese supplier called Osten that worked for 15 minutes and after that my PSP started having the same issues as yours. Even the Ptest result was the same.

Did you manage to solve it?
