Sir on my experience it would be more cheaper if you buy a new unit than have the motherboard repaired because you will have to pay for the parts and pay the technician and wait until it got repaired. and on buying a new one you save time and money and you get to play with your console at once and have a new warranty.. i think that helps ya and please send us your feed back on how this comes out so thank you and fixya.

Psp was connected to car charger and now does not work.Set at 4v

Had service personnel check and it was determined that the battery and charger was good; therefore focus shifted to the motherboard. Due to the cost of the new PSP 3000 being $169.00 and possible charges to repair the PSP 1000, I determine that it would be more economical to buy a new system.

Thanks for help!

Unfortunately this is a hardward failure.

If your psp is still under warranty you can send it back to Sony for repairs for free. (90 days from purchace)

If your warranty is expired, it will cost appoximately $90 for repairs.

Hi Bigturbo,


If the PSP gets dropped and nothing works but the light saying its on.  You have jarred plenty of stuff loose.  I work on PSP systems all the time.  I have to have everything put togther tightly to get it to work porperly. 

If you can afford a repair, from $30 to $85, contact me at  In the mean time, REMOVE THE BATTERY.   You could be destroying the motherboard. That a $50 part.  If you live outside the United States shipping charges will raise the cost. The $30 to $85 includes Return shipping to the USA.  If your Repair estimate exceeds $115 including shipping, it is considered totaled.  BAsically cheaper to buy a used one on Ebay than fix the one you have.

Psp distortion

HI Alici,


This can be repaired, however, it will require a purchase of a new LCD screen, and possibly a new shell. I repair this kind of thing at my home.  I run the Playstation Clinic and charge reasonable prices to repair Video game consoles and DVD players.  All together I can replace both the LCD and face cover including return shipping will be $80.  This repair should only be done by a experienced Repair service.  Even knowledgeable repair people that have never disassembled a PSP can damage the psp so badly it will require the replacement of the motherboard as well, if not done properly.  The motherboard costs about $100.  If your willing to get it repaired you can contact me at  We specialize in PSP repairs.  90 day warranty! The price above is only adding $25 Labor for up to 3 hours of work. Shipping will be about $5.  The LCD screen is about $30, and the cover is about $20. So your Repair would be either $60 or $80 depending on what parts are needed.
