when you say scanner do you mean laser that reads the umd?
you could replace the laser from one off ebay but the thing with replacing lasers is that adjusting the laser so it reads the disk it tricky
here is a shop that repairs lasers in psps http://www.ipaqrepair.co.uk/ipaqpart1418.html
or if you want to do it your self http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sony-PSP-2000-Slim-Original-UMD-Laser-Lens-Repair-Parts_W0QQitemZ290386195846QQcategoryZ127746QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp4340.m263QQ_trkparmsZalgo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BIEW%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D11%26ps%3D63
also you say it is 1 year old from brand new? bought from the shops call sony as it may just be under warenty
Ok there are two options here...........you can send it in to sony for $80 they will replace the screen, or if you are tech savy (even alittle) you can buy a bad psp with a good screen or even a replacement screen from ebay and swap them out....you can view directions on how to disassemble and repair from youtube.com....
It does not worth it. It's better you change its LCD.
It's original LCD is Samsung LTG430WQ-F02. But it is hard to find at cheap price.
But you can also change it with Sharp LCD screen which is spare part for the Playstation Portable (PSP 1000).
I bought one from ebay for 15 USD , replace, It is working great.
Search in ebay : "sharp lcd psp 1000"
The colored line you saw was the actual screen pressing against the back of the psp......Example would be if you put your thumb and pressed on a laptop's screen. It doesnt work now because the screen is now cracked and you can either order a replacment screen on amazon for about 50 bucks or buy a new system
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
