Our grandsons PSP 2000 screen will not show, Jake powers up, the Green Light shows, you can hear a click sound with the Ear Phones in, screen will not work, there is a small brown burn type mark on the...

LCD screens, such as the one in your grandson's PSP, are quite fragile. My guess is that the backlight on the screen is burnt out. Did it ever smell like something was burning? I have seen multiple PSP systems with this problem in the past, and it was usually a problem with the backlight. If you know anyone who is very tech savvy, you can get a replacement screen for as little as $20 and he/she could install it. If you don't know anyone that you would feel comfortable having them take apart the system, you could send it into sony and they would be able to replace it also.

3 days ago I was playing fifa 08 on my psp 3000 then I put it down for 5 minutes to update my facebook status on my mobile phone. All was well until I picked up the psp and noticed red dots on the screen I...

Those are dead pixels in the LCD, and have nothing to do with anything you did to it. It's a defective LCD panel and a lot of companies don't cover dead pixels. I don't know what the deal with Sony is so you should look at your warranty. If you're out of warranty, go to Console Zombie and order a new one for $49.99. It's easy enough to replace by yourself.

Psp turns on, but no screen just black, also I dont hear anything

You might have a brick psp, you need to reflashing your psp.. If you have Custom firmware installed e.g. M33, you can try this first;

try to boot your psp to recovery menu, ( hold R-trigger when turn on your psp), you should see M33 recovery menu, then select "advance" then "Format flash1 and reset setting", if it does not work you need pandora battery for unbricking your psp. or you may consider to sending it back to Sony for repair.You can call SONY support at 1-800-345-7669.

Hopefully this help.! Pls post back should you need additional information, and also Show your Appreciation, to help other USER.

Please fix my psp please

its either your psp is bricked(rendered entertaining as a brick becuase it wont do anything at all.) or screen came unplugged. try turning it on then turning the sound all the way up and see if you can hear the normal sounds. if you can either the screen is unplugged or ruined. if you cant and it turns off by itself then you have a brick.

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
