PRS-500 cannot be charged from USB if it's totally flat. If you don't have the AC charger, get a PSP charger in any electronics/game shop.

Definitely what Igorsk suggests, JDuvall. I had terrible teething problems with my Sony until I caught onto the fact that an AC charger is the only effective way (never rely on the over-optimistic battery level meter on your device). Since then -- maybe eighteen months ago -- the machine's worked like a dream with never a hiccup. Good luck. Neil

It has a red LED just above the power switch on the left edge that lights up when it is charging.
