Sony PSP - Coloured lines frozen on screen

When we power on the PSP we get an arrangement of different size and coloured lines, some in blocks. They flash when pressing any of the buttons. We have tried taking out battery and putting back in.

    no can't see or get to menu, during last few games(registered PSP car game), the cars would turn without pressing buttons and then all of a sudden during a game the lines and shapes suddenly appeared on the screen and are now there all the time.

    The warranty is 12 mths which expired on 12 Oct 2008, looks like we may have to purchase a new one!! I presume it is not worth getting fixed.

    yes, we live a long way from major city so very costly exercise to get someone to look at. Great being able to talk to an expert online. Will use again.

    a correct presumption, considering what you are dealing with. And, I recommend you consider the extended warranty this time..

Coloured lines all over screen


The colored line you saw was the actual screen pressing against the back of the psp......Example would be if you put your thumb and pressed on a laptop's screen. It doesnt work now because the screen is now cracked and you can either order a replacment screen on amazon for about 50 bucks or buy a new system

He probably droped it. The PSP slims are very sensitive. You should buy a case for it as soon as possible.

Psp not working


If a vertical line is present on all or most software, and this line varies in colour and appears often in changing positions:
Please check that there has been no external interference e.g. hairdryer, shaver, washing machine etc.

you can also refer to the troubleshooting steps in the instruction manual that accompanied your PSP (Beginning on page 116)
