    So I though I try my psp slim (after 6 months being last time used) and it wont power on

    I tried with usb cable powered with desktop pc but no charge light
    I tried with the mains and no charge light

    Anyone have any ideas?

    take the battery out and plug the psp in, if it turns on and works fine, probably battery issues.

    I think a bricked psp should still charge batteries, so I don't think thats the issue.

    I believe PSP batteries have a breaker type circuit on them, ive had a battery stop working on me for a day or so before. (tried sticking a psp2000 battery in my phat once [​IMG] ) so if all else fails, give it a day, and try again tomorrow.

    Try just letting the psp charge for a while the battery might be completely drained and need to build up some power before it will turn on.
