    Default Repairing a broken / dead PSP battery

    If your battery doesn't work, charge or even get recognised by your PSP don't just throw it away because there is a good chance that it is still OK. Here are a couple of methods of fixing them easily at no cost.

    1/ Get a couple of small pieces of wire/cable and push one in the + connector of the battery and one in the - connector. Now touch the other ends of the wires momentarily. If the connection is good you should see a small spark. Don't worry this is a very low voltage and will do no damage to you at all.
    You can also touch the two ends to your tongue, it'll tingle. This results in shorting the battery and resetting the circuit board inside the battery. It should work fine, try a couple of times and then place your PSP on charge and should find it charges again.

    if that didn't work try the following method

    2/ Instead of touching the two ends of the wires to your tongue or each other this time you are going to connect them to a bulb from inside a car (xmas lights will work as well as any other low voltage bulb such as torch etc)
    For this example I have used the one from inside my car. Simply stripped the wire back a little on the end that touches the bulb and wrapped it around the terminal. One wire on each end/terminal obviously as we are creating a circuit here and attempting to power the bulb with the PSP battery. If it lights up then this proves that your battery is still good, it just needs to be discharged so put it somewhere safe, where it can stay lit up for a few hours and remember that the bulb will get hot so again, put it somewhere safe.
    After the bulb discharges the battery place it on charge and the PSP should recognise it again and charge it up.

    This is a good tutorial. I've seen a handful of people who could have used this... instead, I told them to buy a different battery.

    (xmas lights will work as well as any other low voltage bulb such as torch etc)
    When you say torch, I know you're talking about this:

    but for those weirdos in the United States you might mention that it's a flash light.

    In the United States, this is what most people think of when they hear the word torch (at least in my area):
