Does the power led indicator goes off after a few seconds or it will stay on?

    @psp problems

    If you can see things dimly from the screen, you can try to hold the backlight adjustment botton next to the music note botton, see if it works, if it doesn't, you probably got a bricked psp, which means you need a pandora battery to unbrick it. Alternatively, if you are running on a custom firmware, you can try to switch off you psp, hold R trigger when switch it on, see if you can enter the recovery mode, in recovery mode you can go to advanced section, select format flash1 and reset setttings, see if it works. DON'T ATTEMPT TO CHANGE ANY VALUE THERE IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH IT!


    Seems to be a hardware problem, can't help you more, good luck.

Might be the memory card inserted on your psp causing the issue, try to turn on your psp while the memory card is not inserted.

check your connections and try again. What are you working with a psp fat or slim? Cause they each take different types of screens. so that may be your problem.

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....

My psp screen is too dark

if the psp screen is anything like a laptop it will have a backlight that lights up the screen what can happen is you can break the light and while you will still see things on the screen when you look closely but it wont be illuminated. i had a friend that dropped his laptop and smashed the backlight he sent it away and got it fixed i suggest you send it to sony to get it fixed
