Yes this can be fixed... it sounds as though the LCD screen [the screen on the inside] has become damaged with the fall. The following website sells the LCDs and does replacements. The cost depends on the model of the PSP that you own. You can find the model number of your PSP on a label inside the back of the PSP if you remove the battery. Check them out:

My son has dropped his PSP from his bed to the laminate floor, now it starts but the screen shows veritcal lines and a in the top right hand cormer the game can be seen. It this PSP dead or can it be...


There are two possible problems with the PSP.
The first is that the connection between the wire connecting the screen and the mother board has become loose. Vertical lines are often signs that the screen is not receiving all the data required to fill every line.
More likely, the lines on the screen were severely damaged from the drop, rendering them inactive. This means that you will require a new screen.
Because of the purchase date, your product is still under Sony's initial warranty. This means you can request a repair or a new device. I have included a link to the "Service Request Page" to speed things along for you. Note that there is a $50 fee for replacing and diagnosing a problem with a device. While it may seem costly, due to the early age of the device, it may be best to go through Sony as not to void the warranty.

My son dropped his PSP on the floor and it doesnt turn on its dead. The screen is not broken, justhas no life anymore


The motherboard inside the unit is very fragile, it is possible several key components have become dislodged and so the unit will no longer work.

Psp does not work


UMD drive may have broke during the fall. Unless you can find a replacement and disassemble the psp (which is difficult and very fragile) i would not mess with it.

My son dropped a toy on the screen of his PSP slim. Now when you turn it on, you get some black and grey lines, but no picture. You can't even tell something was dropped on it. The glass itself is fine...


Unfortunately, your son may have damaged the back light in the PSP. The only way to repair this is to take it to a local repair shop and have them remove the old PSP screen and put in a new one. It is possible that the connection to the motherboard and the screen has become looser, but I want to prepare you for the worse.

PSP


When the football hit the psp, it could have knocked some hardware out of place, possibly on the motherboard. If you know what you are doing, you could open up the PSP and re attach the piece, or find someone who knows how to fix it.
