Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Nothing on screen/turning off

My son's PSP is making me crazy! He can turn it on but it will not show anything on the screen. At the same time it will not turn off unless you take out the battery. He tried to charge it but that hasn't done anything.

The backlight is probably out or the LCD is disconnected, the on/off switch is loose or the hold switch is on

PSP won't turn on


You can try a hard reset. Do this hold the power switch in the upward position for over 10 seconds. This will cause the machine to reboot. Leave it alone for a few minutes then try switching it back on. You may have to flick the switch on twice to start her up again. If it still has a hard time try changing the battery for the one in your sons machine. MAKE SURE that all apps etc are closed on the PSP first and do the hard reset BEFORE you remove the battery on BOTH machines. Ensure PSP is OFF before removing battery. It is possible the battery has been overcharged or just given up. If the console operates with the other battery you know you need get a fresh one. Consider getting a high power one for extended life. Let us know how you get on. May have more info for you.

The psp would show nothing in the screen


The PSP is bricked or the screen is broken.

Google "bricked PSP" this happens when a system update is interupted by being turned off or the battery running out. the only way to fix it is to either hack it, have it hacked or send it back to sony to let them fix it.

No display problem


You might have the broken LCD.. If you not sure, try to boot under recovery menu - (if you have custom firmware installed). if the problem come from corrupted firmware you should see the menu of recovery.. then goto menu "Advance" > "Format flash1 and reset setting". otherwise you may consider sending it back to Sony for repair.You can call SONY support at 1-800-345-7669.

PSP screen problem


It is most likely a screen problem, perhaps the screen is disconnected. I would suggest having it serviced, or perhaps you can try to disassemble it and check the cable is fully plugged in.
