If the Psp turns on and you can hear the O/s " Operating system start up, your backlite has burned out. This is a common problem with alot of handheld products and isnt so difficult to replace. You will need the tools to open and replace including a new lcd or backlite. (Ebay.com) sells backlites and lcd combo's at a reduced price. If you are under a 1 year warenty give sony a call, but dont tell them you think its the backlite, ask alot of questions and see if its covered, mabye a full replacement can be sent to you only the cost of Shipping. Give it a try and if no luck mabye I can jot down the steps to remove and replace the backlite.
Notice: The backlite may not be the problem, if you replace the backlite and it still is un-functional, then you will have to replace the lcd. The backlight is easy to replace if you take your time and isnt as cheaper to do then a whole lcd replacement.

My sons psp has a black screen


Without a functional screen, the PSP doesn't have much of a purpose. If the power light next to your screen is off as well, all your PSP needs is a good long battery charge. But if the power light is on and the screen is still dark, a few quick troubleshooting steps can help you get to the root of the problem. If troubleshooting doesn't work, you will need to contact Sony eService through its support site, particularly if your PSP has recently been dropped or had liquid spilled on it.
Step 1Turn off your PSP. Remove the battery pack. Replace the battery pack, making sure that it is securely inserted. Turn the PSP back on. If the screen is still black, continue to Step 2.
Step 2Press any system button. If the backlight is turned off, pressing a system button should reactivate it. If the screen has turned back on, go to the PSP settings menu. Select "Power Save Settings." Select "Backlight Auto-Off." This option automatically turns off the screen if the PSP has been idle. If you do not wish to have this feature active, select "Off." If this step did not solve the problem, continue to Step 3.
Step 3Press the screen brightness button below the screen. This button is marked with a small donut-like icon. Pressing the button will incrementally increase the brightness of the screen. Holding down the button will turn off the backlight. It is possible that this button was accidentally pressed down after placing the PSP in a pocket or a backpack. If the screen remains black after the brightness has been increased to full, continue to Step 4 if your model of PSP is any but the PSP Go.
Step 4Open the top hatch on the PSP. This will eject the UMD disc. Only touch the UMD at the edges, as fingerprints can interfere with the disc's functionality. Clean the surface of the UMD with a clean, dry cloth. Do not clean the UMD with water or any other chemicals. If the disc looks scratched or damaged, this is likely the cause of the screen issue. Additionally, moisture can condense on the UMD if the PSP has undergone a recent temperature change, such as being brought into a warm house from a cold car. If the UMD looks wet, turn off the PSP and allow the UMD to air dry. Wait several hours before trying to restart your PSP.

My sons psp is a month old. although he can play


This is most likely a problem with the PSP itself, you might have to take it back and exchange it for a working one. Before you do take it back, try going at it with can of compressed air. Make sure you clean the eye of the UMD reader but don't actually touch it!

If it still doesn't work, you will need to take it back. I would take it back soon (today) so you don't lose your store warranty (if you have one).

Playstation's number is 1-800-345-SONY.

Good luck,

PSP black screen


IF PSP is being disturbed or power went off by any means while upgrading system software. It is sure that your PSP is bricked and now you had the only option to get repaired by a technician and it is done with the help of Pandora's Jigkick Battery. If you required any more info please write.

The play game icon not showing on his PSP


Is there a disc in the drive? If so, it sounds like your UMD drive (or disc) is damaged. Does it only happen with one game or with all your son's games?
