When switched on the screen has suddenly developed the appearance of a torn page i.e. the screen looks as if it is torn in half with black , purplish gash ?

Uh oh. Did you sit on it or something? The LCD is cracked. I don't know if sony will cover that under the warranty.. Replace the screen; all it takes is steady hands and a set of electronics screwdrivers. The screen will run you about $25.00. Look up how to do it on youtube. Heres some links to screens:
If you have a PSP-3000:
If you have a PSP-2000(slim): (these ain't cheap)
If you have a PSP-1000(Phat):

Blank top screen

This is one of those things that I regret to say but the only way to repair this would be to order a new Flex cable. the flex cable is a small flat ribbon cable that connects the bottom half with the top half. It would be easer to replace the entire thing instead of just the ribbon cable

Does the light come on?  I am assuming you do not get anything on the TV screen.  How did the Ribbon get a hole in it? 

Get parts for the PS2 reasonable from Ebay.I do not want to venture a guess wihtout more info.


Repair charges for a PS2 Slim at the Playstation Clinic range from $25 to $75, where if it needs more work than $75 can repair, it is totaled.

Reset ribbon

First, you need to be able to solder, ask your dad to help. You need to attatch the ribbon to the ribbon cable socket by soldering the metal together. Good luck.
