    Well my psp stopped working, and I know it's something physical (happened after I tried to charge the battery). Basically it won't turn on at all, and if I try to charge the battery through my car charger (lost the original charger so I have to use that one) it will load the battery but nothing else. Trying to use it without the battery (just the car charger) doesn't work either, it simply gives a yellow light that blinks slowly (the charging light, not the screen).
    Can anyone help me? Is it the battery, or has the psp blown a fuse (do they have fuses for that matter) or perhaps something else?

    You've probably blown the internal power fuse. Those third party chargers, especially car adapters, are notoriously dodgy.

    I see, can it be fixed (easily) or am I better off looking for a new one?

    You don't state what model but it'd be a similar process to this. All depends how confident you are.

    Well it is a psp-1000 series (1004 to be precise), and it seems doable (if not for me then I know some people that can do it). But would this cause the charging light to blink when left connected to a charger without a battery?

    You say it doesn't turn on with it connected just to a charger without the battery. As xist said before car charging is unreliable. The first step would be to check the fuse and/or borrow a charger from somebody else. If it passes you can move on to other diagnostic steps. If it is the fuse, I would highly suggest that if you bypass it with solder you purchase an authentic charger as the fuse won't be able to protect your psp from cheap/car charger spikes that could fry it, or did fry it.

    Allright, thanks guys. I'll be asking some of the guys I know to repair it (safer this way), and perhaps they'll have an pfficial charger too.
    Once more I thank you.
