PSP black line on bottom of screen

Hello, I have a psp which is a year and a half old. It was playing perfectly. I shut it off and then when I turned it back on there is a black solid line on the bottom of the screen which will not go away no matter if I am watching a movie or playing a game. Can you tell me what this might be??

This is definitely a broken LCD display screen. Since it's out of warranty you'll have to pay to have Sony repair it or just buy a new one. Bummer. Sorry to hear that you're having this trouble.

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.

Problem loading the NEW PSP ACTION REPLAY.

TADA! answer 4 u.
It's your battery. Take out your battery from the psp and look on the back of it. If, at the top, it says PSP-S110 and at the bottom it says made in China, be bummed. That's what mine said and the codejunkies website warns about that battery. Dunno where to get a new one though. Hey, diagnosing the problem is half the battle. Good luck.
