  14. @anonymous As the article mentions, for a discharged battery or an original PSP-1000 series “fat” PSP, you need to use a power cable that plugs into the special PSP power socket. You should be able to use a PSP power brick or a USB to PSP power cable – this has a PSP power connector on one end and USB on the other. You can’t use a regular USB mini cable. I also believe the PSP won’t actually start up until the battery has a minimal charge, so if your battery won’t hold a charge you may have to replace the battery as well. I bought a cheap USB to PSP power connector cable and it seems to charge my PSP-1000.
