Hi helghast,

If your PSP is working all but the display, meaning you can here the sounds of clicking past the menu items when you press the D-pad in different direction, you have a Backlight burned out. This is a very complicated task to replace your backlight without good training and knowledge of the internal construction of your PSP. If you have never replaced the LCD in a PSP, I highly suggest getting it repaired professionally.
Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then on the next page, Click on "Video Game Consoles" Pick a good Repairman that has experience working on PSP's. I would not use any repair guy who has never replaced the LCD in a PSP.

Power problems

Hi Gohan102,


Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....

Switching on my psp after charging it

Please mention after switching on the PSP power LED turns on or not? ================================================= Suppose without connecting the charger when you power on your PSP you will see green light and you will get sound clear with no display at all and after 1 min: PSP will turn off automatically. then 99% it means that your PSP is bricked.
