    I have not dropped my PSP was playing and all of a sudden the game jammed. Turned off/On, took battery out, took game out, took memory card out. No difference, all it does is i can hear the sound but blank screen. Spoke to someone from my local Gamestation store and he said if i press on the screen and see fluid, it means i cant do anything, ITS BROKEN. So left it at that!!!

Psp turns on, but no screen just black, also I dont hear anything


You might have a brick psp, you need to reflashing your psp.. If you have Custom firmware installed e.g. M33, you can try this first;

try to boot your psp to recovery menu, ( hold R-trigger when turn on your psp), you should see M33 recovery menu, then select "advance" then "Format flash1 and reset setting", if it does not work you need pandora battery for unbricking your psp. or you may consider to sending it back to Sony for repair.You can call SONY support at 1-800-345-7669.

Hopefully this help.! Pls post back should you need additional information, and also Show your Appreciation, to help other USER.

My psp has no image but it has sound


Dude, I had the same problem, the screen everything works fine when I use the TV out,

Check it out and tell me. I already call Sony and they will replace it with a new one, I recommend you call them if you still your warranty and your receipt.

or'

If the LCD screen suddenly turns dark

  • Check the Backlight Auto-Off setting
    If the Backlight Auto-Off setting is turned ON, the backlight will turn off after a set period of time. Press any button to turn the screen back on.
    To check the Backlight Auto-Off setting:
    1. From the XMB™ menu, go to icn_settings.gif (Settings) > [Power Settings] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    2. Highlight [Backlight Auto-Off] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    3. Select a time interval and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button to save. Select OFF if you wish to disable this feature.

  • Check the Auto Sleep setting
    If the Auto Sleep setting is turned ON, the screen will turn dark after a set period of time. Press any button to turn the screen back on.
    To check the Auto Sleep setting:
    1. From the XMB™ menu, go to icn_settings.gif (Settings) > [Power Settings] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    2. Highlight [Auto Sleep] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    3. Select a time interval and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button to save. Select OFF if you wish to disable this feature.

  • Check the Display Button
    Check the Display button on the front of the PSP system. Pressing the Display button (located to the right of the PSP logo on the bottom front) will cycle through the brightness settings of the LCD screen.
    The brightness setting can only be used when the PSP system is plugged into an electrical outlet with an AC adaptor.

Power issue, blank screen.


Don't listen to dnbull. i looked at the PSP sites, and apperantly that kind of thing will only happen if it got screwed because you shut of power while it was loading, downloading, saving etc. and it will take about 2-4 hours of time for the data to restart. Put in on a charger and leave it on for a long time and it should restart. you might not have all your files though... sorry...:(

No screen


The backlight is probably gone. Just had same problem on my sons one. I purchased a replacement off ebay seems a simple enough job to do if you are sort of tech minded.
