Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

5 Answers

Power issue, blank screen.

Hey there, I would like to start off by saying, this is NOT a brick for my PSP, a brick occurs when you are doing something with the firmware, I was simply listening to music, turned it off, then tried to turn it on later. Okay, recently, I was using my PSP, with my 2GB memory stick duo, listening to music. I turned off my PSP, put it in my case, and then put it into my backpack. 2 hours later, I pulled it out, and tried to turn it on. The green light turns on, but the the system itself will not start up. With a brick, the green light would turn OFF after about 30 seconds, the light will stay on as long as my battery has life. I have tried everything, except taking it apart and checking for a short, or checking for dust, mainly because I lack the tools neccessary. If there is any sort of proffessional opinion on this, I would be very happy to hear it. Thanks!

Don't listen to dnbull. i looked at the PSP sites, and apperantly that kind of thing will only happen if it got screwed because you shut of power while it was loading, downloading, saving etc. and it will take about 2-4 hours of time for the data to restart. Put in on a charger and leave it on for a long time and it should restart. you might not have all your files though... sorry...:(

I was playing when the the screen went blank with the green light on. It only occurs with this chinese 3600mAh aftermarket batty. AC power and the original battery brought it back.

My psp blank screen


Hi,

If you've got a blank screen on your psp then you'll have to follow this simple steps to know if you'll need to replace the screen or not.

Step 1. Place it on charge and try switching it on, if it does not power the screen on then move on to step 2.

Step 2. Pull out the battery and put it back in, then switch it on. If it powers the screen back on then you are good to go but if it does not then you could be moving close to a replacement for your psp.

Take the psp to a certified sony repair person and he would fix the screen for you.

Regards

Psp blank screen


Maybe your psp screen is not plugged inside the plug which gives power to it or your psp is bricked. If its bricked just make a pandora battery and it will fix it.
