    my psp isnt charging anymore. i have a bad feeling its internal, since i tried 3 chargers (2 wall chargers and a usb) and 2 different batteries.

    sometimes, if im lucky, the psp will charge. but you have to twist the charger cable in various ways until you see the orange led turn on... and even then you still have to hold the cable still in that position for it to charge.

    every day it keeps getting worse and worse. its harder to find the magic charging spot that my psp keeps hiding from me now.

    is there a way to open my psp up and check if the yellow charging bit thing is ok? or will i need to buy a new one. either way ill have to open my psp...

    if anyone has a guide to check the insides of the psp thanks
