Re: psp

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.

Hey, i have a problem with my sony PSP when i start my PSP the green power light is on but there is nothing to display and the memory stick light keeps flickering too , please help ???

Hello there

You'll need to hard reset your PSP and restore it to its factory settings. Once this is done, your PSP should work perfectly.

Hold the power button on the right side of your PSP down until the device completely powers off. Wait at least five seconds after the power is off before proceeding to the next step.

Press and hold the Select and Start buttons located in the bottom right corner of the PSP.

Press and hold the Square and Triangle buttons (located on the directional pad) while continuing to hold the Select and Start buttons.

Press the power button while holding these four buttons. When the flash (logo) screen appears, you can release the four buttons and your PSP will be reset to its factory settings and the screen will no longer be blank.

The screen went black

You can try plugging it in to your tv via a component cable and see if it works. If it does then you have a screen issue, if not, then you have a mobo issue. either way, sell it on ebay.

with the PSP being dropped, keep in mind that you might have a cracked board. Best thing to do if you have the tools is to open it and see if there are any cracks in the board, if there isnt' then look for loose cables and reseat them and see what happens.

If you still can't get the psp to turn on then the board is still bad and would need to be replaced or to get a new PSP.

Dropped my PSP! Screen Blank!

Well if that`s true that if a handheld is broken when dropped then I shouldn`t have any working handhelds. Well, if you still have the companies number you should call Sony and ask them.

ps, tell them it was your friends.
