Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Psp slim screen & backlight

Hi,

My young son (8 yrs old) broke the screen on his psp, just out of warranty!.

I ordered a replacement screen myself as I am (usually) fairly competent fixing electronics, and I have replaced it - and it works, At least the LCD works but the backlight doesn't.

Aside from the large ribbon connector on the screen there is a (very) small one on the left hand side looking down - does this power the backlight?

I broke the top of the thing that this small ribbon is suppoesed to connect to butI thought that it was just designed to hold it in place so I superglued the connector on to keep it in place. Perhaps I should have soldered it.

Am I starting to sound like an idiot?! Any advice you can give me might help put me back on the top of his super-heroes list - help!!!

When switched on the screen has suddenly developed the appearance of a torn page i.e. the screen looks as if it is torn in half with black , purplish gash ?


Uh oh. Did you sit on it or something? The LCD is cracked. I don't know if sony will cover that under the warranty.. Replace the screen; all it takes is steady hands and a set of electronics screwdrivers. The screen will run you about $25.00. Look up how to do it on youtube. Heres some links to screens:

Psp My son sat on it,an when he turned it on behind the screen colour comes up an you can see moving of the game,but it broke as you can`t see anything other then colour. Can you help? what would you say...


Hi. Kieran.

I don't want to be the person to give bad news, but after reasearching your question for you it sounds like you son broke the psp. The color screen behind the lsd screen is damaged and usually cannot be repaired by an unqualified person. If you were to bring the system to be repaired between labor and costs, it may be cheaper to buy a new PSP.

Hopefully, depending on how long you have had the PSP you may be under a warranty.

What I suggest is to call Sony. See if you are under warranty, and have it replaced for no cost to you. Otherwise you will have to purchase a new PSP.

The number for Sony is found on the back of almost all of the psp video game manuals.

I hope I was able to fixya problem, and I wish you and your son Happy Gaming!

Cracked LCD


Usually, yes, the LCD is covered under the warranty. If not, it could cost around $400 to fix.
