It makes me type baclwards and frezzes and makes a clicking noise when i try to type why ?

You might have a problen with your laser lens, umd drive or umd its self. do any other umds work?if not and you still have a warranty i strongly recommend you get a new one before your warranty expires, if youd hate to send it back to sony because they might give me you the new PSP that cant be downgraded, you could just open up your PSP and clean the UMD drive (once you open your PSP the warranty Expires straight away,so that wouldnt be something i would do)if you still want to do it follow this simple steps.

1. How to open your PSP

Tools needed:

One small size Phillips Screwdriver, if you dont know what that is you should probably not try to open your PSP, ok its something that look like this X

On picture 1 you will see the 5 screws that need to be removed to open the PSP, marked with red arrows. If you are not going to remove the whole inside of the PSP then dont bother to remove the 2 screws marked with green arrows. There is also no need to remove the whole label inside the battery compartment. I just did it for this picture.


2. How to remove the LCD screen

Its quite easy to remove the LCD screen, just use a small flat screwdriver and put in the side like you see in the picture and pry it open. Now dont slip, you dont want to put a big scratch in the LCD screen.


Now it will look like this, and you will see the screen is attached with 2 orange flat cables. Always be extra careful when opening this type of clips, they can very easily be damaged.

3. How to fix stuck L/R buttons

This is how it looks like when you have the stuck button problem, its not very common, but I have seen it a few times. Fortunately its easy to fix. It should be noted that Sony have fixed this issue as far as I know on new productions, so new comers shouldnt be worried about this.


Before you start doing this, check what part of the plastic that actually get stuck and then just use a nail file to remove some of the plastic, put it back, test again if it still get stuck. If it does then file down some more, but be careful not to remove to much or you will end up with a lose button instead.

Replace a PSP screen quick and easy

The guide to fixing your PSP screen the easy way!!!!!


This Guide will give you simpleinstructions on fixing the psp screen with little to no stress. Besure to keep all your things in one place and try to do everything inone sitting or at least do it in a area where you know somebody won'tknow knock the parts to the floor as there is a lot of small screwsand thing. Try to use a small box or pan to keep screws and otherparts and keep yourself grounded but keeping parts of yourskin(unclothed)to something made of metal.

1) Flip you PSP to its backside and besure the back cover that holds the battery is off. There are twoscrews in back of the battery. On could be covered by a sticker. Besure to peel it of slowly as it will void you warranty if it isruined.

  1. After you get these out look on the bottom side,you will see a screw that is dead center of the psp. The last two are above and below where the memory card slot is.
  2. Take the faceplate off. Now you will see a a small set of buttons on the screen. To the right of it
    is a small cable. Use a flathead screwdriver to the clasp and pull the cable out.
  3. You will now see two clamps for the screen where the button assembly for the d-pad is. The same thing for the other side where the face buttons for the psp are. Take all the clamps off by use the flathead screwdriver again. Put in in between the screen and clamps and give it a little turn.
  4. You have the screen out now. Pull it from both sides very slowly. Be very careful as there are cables still connected. Flip the screen out as we are going to take the cables off the screen now.
  5. There are two black clasps holding the screen cables on there. Lift them up(slowly!)and take the cables off. If those claps are broke there is no fix outside a new motherboard so don't break them.
  6. Put the screen into the clasps putting in all necessary cables that were went thru taking off. Sit the LCD screen snugly and and lock clasps. Return faceplate and all buttons to original positions to be sure everything will play right. Before you close it all up be sure everything is in place and fits well. Be sure to put the buttons back on and connect it to the motherboard. Turn the psp on and be sure it all works well. If it is having any pronlems go back over each step in reverse order from when we put the screen in.
  7. Once you go get the screen working put the screen back on and tighten all the screws.We are all done!!! Enjoy your PSP and I will see you online in Resistance!

Hey guys, If anyone wants to help me get some pictures up shoot me a comment on here. My digital Camera died today and it will be awhile before I will buy a new one(maybe its good because since my PSP is still under warranty)thanks!

Black Screen on PSP Slim


Take out the battery of your PSP, wait 30 seconds and then reinsert it. Then start the PSP up without the charger in it. If the problem still occurs, try holding the brightness button (rectangle icon near select button) for 10 seconds. I hope this works for you.

Sony DSC-W100

This address has the LCD screen for W100 for 49.99 plus 7.99 shipping. I had the same problem with my w100. Just remove the screws that hold the back on. Gently take out the LCD screen and follow the connection to where it connects. Gently pop open the connector clamp, its hinged on the far side. remove the old replace the new snap connector clamp back down. Check that it works then put back and screws back on.

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.

Psp black screen

Hi Azeem123,


Your PSP is Bricked.  You need to send it to Sony to get your problem resolved. The contact information is listed below.

I know this is terrible news for you.  When you were downloading the Flash0, something disturbed the download and corrupted the PSP. This is what Bricked you PSP.  Brick refers to your psp and it is dead until Sony fixes it, no more worth than a brick.
