PSP slim 2001 Hippy Vision / Blank Screen upon start up

hippy vision? HA HA! Well with gamestop if it's been past your 30 days to exchange your almost screwed...

Here is one solution if you want to try it.
Go back to game stop and buy a used psp that is identical to the one you have now. Take it home and with an exacto knife carefully remove the serial number on both PSPs and swap them out.

Return the crappy one and finsh your grueling RPG battle thus saving the world from doom due to a faulty PSP screen.

Not the most honest solution, but when you spen that kind of money....

Word of advice as well, NEVER BUY GAME STOP REFURBISHED. Refurbished means that when someone traded it, the thing was broken and gamestop attempted to fix it, and as you can see by your purchase they are not the best at it. A used system is tested to work right there in the store and is only sold if it plays and functions properly.

hope this helps.

Black Screen on PSP Slim


Take out the battery of your PSP, wait 30 seconds and then reinsert it. Then start the PSP up without the charger in it. If the problem still occurs, try holding the brightness button (rectangle icon near select button) for 10 seconds. I hope this works for you.

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....

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...:(
