Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

2 Answers

My son dropped a toy on the screen of his PSP slim. Now when you turn it on, you get some black and grey lines, but no picture. You can't even tell something was dropped on it. The glass itself is fine but something to do with the image is messed up. You can still hear the game when you turn it on.

See if you can send it in to Sony for repai. Otherwise, there are some at home repair videos on you tube, but parts will cost around $100 (!) so it may be best to have someone else repair and diagnose the problem. Very sorry to hear this! :/

Unfortunately, your son may have damaged the back light in the PSP. The only way to repair this is to take it to a local repair shop and have them remove the old PSP screen and put in a new one. It is possible that the connection to the motherboard and the screen has become looser, but I want to prepare you for the worse.

My son dropped his psp on the floor!!!


Yes this can be fixed... it sounds as though the LCD screen [the screen on the inside] has become damaged with the fall. The following website sells the LCDs and does replacements. The cost depends on the model of the PSP that you own. You can find the model number of your PSP on a label inside the back of the PSP if you remove the battery. Check them out:

PSP Slim, picture problems


If he bought it from best buy, ask for a two year reeplacment plan. after that, you tell them what happend to your psp. by the way, the replacment plan is only $29.99. They will either try to fix it, or they will give you a new psp, the same exact type as you said psp slim, for free. But heres a catch. after you use the replacment plan once, you may not be able to use it again. good luck. P.S. what happend to your nephew, is what happend to me.
