Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
Recently, I've been experiencing quite a serious graphical problem with my PSP.
When it first started, the screen would occasionally display corrupted (ghosted/scrambled) graphics during use, which would be fixed by switching it off and on again and would only happen intermittently. Recently, it's stopped showing anything on screen at start up, while the backlight, sound, etc. still work.
If I take off the case and shake it about a bit, I can usually get it to work for a while, but exerting any pressure on the front of the unit (including screwing the faceplate down securely) usually causes the on-screen image to freeze and fade to black again, while the sound of gameplay continues as normal. I've tried removing the wire connecting the LCD screen to the motherboard and fitting them back in securely, but it makes absulutely no difference, the problem continues as before.
I'm cosidering just buying a new LCD screen, but my worry is that the damage is not to the screen itself, but to some part of the PSPs motherboard or graphics chip (seeing as it still occasionally shows uncorrupted graphics, given some abuse) and I will have wasted my money.
I'd really, really appreciate it if anyone has any suggestions, or has experienced this problem in the past.
I have the same problem, so I bought a brand new OEM LCD screen and replaced it, but the problem persists. So I know it is not the LCD screen itself. Any suggestions?

I haven't had that problem, but it really does sound like a problem with the LCD screen. If everything else is working correctly, it really should just be the the LCD.
