    recently worked on my psp and fixed the wi-fi switch only to put it back together turn it on and hear it start up with the screen not working.
    tried using my newer psps screen but it doesnt work neither.
    HOWEVER.. if iput the new psp's motherboard into my old psp the screens work perfectly( but the new mother board has no custom firmware and the charge peice is broke off) that was last night.

    i hope that i can get the screen to work with my old motherboard or else i will have to get ahold of an older psp again( preferebly one that has a problem with buttons or cracked screen so i can get it easily)

You probably either have a bad back light wich if you hold your psp up very close 
to a light you will be able to see the display or your screen and light have gone bad
in wich case you can buy a new screen on ebay here is a link

and here is a link on how to replace the screen

In order to do this you will have to void your warranty :\ but it should fix the problem

Hi My PSP's orange ligth won't turn off just always lightning when turn on my psp it's lightning with green light


Hi khangal74,
If you dont have issues playing your usual psp games, you dont have to worry about the orange light. That is normal. It means that your PSP is saving the data to your memory stick. Also make sure that your WLan switch is turned off ( that also causes a blinking orange light ). However, if you are experiencing a flickering orange light and your screen remains black ( and you cannot play any games), it means that your PSP is having issues reading you memory card.
Do these:
Remove the memory card and turn your PSP on without the memory card (it should turn on with no problems) Now, slowly re-insert your Memory stick. (You may need to do this several times until your PSP recognizes your memory card) If this still does not work, your Memory stick is busted or may be infected with a virus and therefore needs to be replaced.
Wishing you with positive results. All the best to you.

Psp power up green lights on black screen after a few seconds shuts down psp slim


it sounds like you bricked you psp, if it's not a 3000 or psp go you can probably fix it by buying a pandora battery and magic memory stick.  you can buy them from here http://pandorasales.com/?gclid=CNLk1fzUzqgCFcO8KgodAzI2lA , if you are running a psp 3000 and up, you could try to format your memory stick but it probably won't work.

Auto shut off when starting a game.


Sounds like your psp has been "bricked"

This can often happen while trying to "hack" your psp or trying to download games without the proper hacks.

You will need to have it reset by the game store or sony.

No screen


The backlight is probably gone. Just had same problem on my sons one. I purchased a replacement off ebay seems a simple enough job to do if you are sort of tech minded.
