Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Screen seems to be too birght

I recently replaced the lcd screen on my psp because it cracked. The problems i am having now is either the backlight is too bright or the lcd is too dim. I know eveything on it works, you can faintly see the menus and such. Any suggestions.

Also, it is a quality screen. Same brand, "Sharp", as the original

    Yes, you can faintly see the screen on the lowest setting. I tried pretty much everything. No other problems besides that. The motherboard maybe?

    Have you tried using the screen buttons on the front of the PSP?

It could be the mother board or more likley the battery pack is starting to wear out.
I would suggest trying the playstation support website:
If you can't find anything there than try buying a new battery pack.

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-2000(slim): (these ain't cheap)
If you have a PSP-1000(Phat):

Cracked LCD

Usually, yes, the LCD is covered under the warranty. If not, it could cost around $400 to fix.

Cracked psp screen

Youll have to open it up and look if the screen is cracked or the cover, the screen is behind the clear perspex of the outer case.
If its the screen then this will help:

Otherwise you ll need a new case:

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

No screen

The backlight is probably gone. Just had same problem on my sons one. I purchased a replacement off ebay seems a simple enough job to do if you are sort of tech minded.
