Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Green light but nothing comes on

One day my little brother dropped a very light weighted bucket on my psp, that was about the size of your hand, and shut itself off. But I turned it back on and it worked fine, but a day or so later, the green power button light comes on, but the screen is just black. What is wrong with my psp, and how do I fix it?

P.S. (I have the old PSP)

It seems that inside your PSP the LCD Screen Connection cable (The broad One) which is connected to the motherboard is being loose contact so if you can open the PSP try it by re-fixing the cable again otherwise you better go for a technician who will do the same job for you.

My psp was dropped and now the little green light comes on but the sreen stays black, nothing happens. five or so seconds go by and the light turns off what is my problem, any ideas need help please


Inside the psp is a very small ribbon cable that connects your screen to a printed circuit board. Sounds to me like you most likely need to reinsert that cable to get your screen back up. If you open it...be absolutely certain you know what you are doing! Most connections are very small and you will need jewelers screwdrivers to open it. Otherwise bring it in for repair.
Best Luck.

Sound like a major hardware problem. Check on your warranty and see if it's covered. Otherwise you might be out of luck.

Psp screen won't turn on


Did you download any firmware? What version of updates are you on? Its possible that your PSP is bricked. Which basically means that you hit a one out of one-hundred chance of you PSP being locked up and useless for that matter.

Hi Gohan102,

 

Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....
