Re: lcd screen has a little black stuff on it when i turn...

Where exactly? on the edge? if it is, that is the padding that prevents the LCD from touching the actual PSP case. it means that it shifted a little..

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):

Ok guys (and gals)... I bought a psp 3001 on ebay dirt cheap thinking it was an easy fix. The discription said the LCD screen wouldnt turn on. i received it today and opened it to find that the psp was in...

i really can't say, i would assume there would be a website that sell spare parts for the psp, i forgot the name of the one i use to go to, i need a new lil plactic thingy for the anolog, cuz it would go in another dir, i bought it, installed it, turns out that was not the prob at all and that i needed a new anolog in all.... so i just installed a plug in to disable the anolog, but i think i remember seein parts such as lcd screen parts and stuff... i got mine from some where in the uk.. the shippin was just a lil bit more,, (like $4 or so) ...

My psp hang too

He might have kicked the LCD screen out of place.... If you don't have a warranty on it, then open it up and see if the LCD wires are correctly intact. There are two wires that connect to the LCD. One of them is extremely fragile so becareful with that one (it's under the LCD screen). Make sure you don't just pull the LCD out by force. Go slowly. Also, check this site out on how to open up the psp. FAT PSP SLIM/LITE

And telling me which model (Fat, 2000, 3000) would've helped me better...

And it could have also been the mobo. You can check once you open it, if it was the mobo, buy one from ebay (it's cheaper than having to buy a newer console.

PSP SCREEN BROKEN, CAN IT BE REPLACED? how much will it cost?

Yes it can be replaced but its a little bit expensive otherwise there is an LCD screen made in china available in your area cause it is far more cheaper than the original one hahaha.For the cost I think 50 to 80 dollar for the original PSP LCD screen.

PSP Screen won't show.

Could be that the cable came loose in the psp that connects to the lcd and it probably needs to be reseated.

If that doesn't do the trick then the screen could be bad or when things got pushed to the side it messed up the main board probably. Won't know until its opened.
