    I can play a game on my psp but can only see half of the screen after I dropped it. It looks like the screen is cracked but I cannot feel it externally. Would getting a new lcd fix the problem?

If the psp screen is anything like a laptop it will have a backlight that lights up the screen what can happen is you can break the light and while you will still see things on the screen when you look closely but it wont be illuminated. i had a friend that dropped his laptop and smashed the backlight he sent it away and got it fixed i suggest you send it to sony to get it fixed

It's just the inverter component. Buy a new inverter and change it.

Go to llama.com - lots of replacement parts along with instructions. I repaired my son's PSP - replaced screen - and it was fairly easy.

You can open the PSP and just lift the LCD Screen up be sure before lifting LCD Screen one thin Switch panel of micro buttons Home,VOL,select etc, you have to remove this first then only it is possible to lift the LCD Screen and after that you check that broad connection strip which is fixed with the motherboard socket you remove it this strip and refixed it again,your problem should get solved if suppose your LCD Screen is not broken.

My little brother droppe my psp it charges but when you turn it on the light goes on for 3 seconds but it shows no pictures


With the PSP The screen in it is very delicate, I have replaced hundreds of broken screens like this if you can find someone to open it and check pulling the top plate off will atleast let you see if the damage is on the screen or not. there will be a crack most likely in the middle along the blackest part of the screen.

My psp drop on the floor it fall on the floor around a foot high when I open it the screen shows that there is no memory stick inserted. The memory stick was inside it


The memory stick was probably damaged during the fall.
First, take the memory stick out and examine it for any cracks, bends, or other blemishes. If it looks fine, I would try the stick in another device and see if it works. If the stick works in another machine, it means the system itself probably got damaged, but if the stick doesn't work in any device, it probably means you only need to buy a new memory stick.

My psp wont work it has green and blue lines on the screen and a cracked symbol on the inside of the scrren


This means your screen is broken. You should get a replacement screen. This is better than buying whole new PSP. Some screens sell for about $75, but I can give you a site that sells PSP screens for 29.95 (last time I checked). 

The site is: http://bestofferbuy.com

Replacing screens takes time, effort, and skill. If you've never taken apart a PSP before, visit http://llama.com/PSP

My screen crack plus the ink spill


have it replaced then, there is no way to repair the broken screen itself...it's fairly expensive though, it will cost you about 40-50-60% the cost of a new PSP(that would be an OK price)...

It's not hard change the LCD screen, the hardiest part is disassembly the PSP, but if you are not experienced in eletronics is better find a repair shop.
