Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

2 Answers

Blank Screen My PSP (Slim and lite) was working fine the other day but the screen started to darken when I went to turn it off. So today I go to play a game, and the screens blank. I hear the the sounds of the main screen and the sounds of the game starting. But I don't see anything. I've tried changing the brightness, taking out the battery while it's off and just using the AC charger, using both the AC charger and battery, and leaving it on. Does anyone have ANY idea what's going on?

    My screen is blank. I can't see a single thing. The back light is on though.

    And I can't ship it to sony because it's limited addition. It's the Crisis Core Final Fantasy 10th anniversary one. And I'm sure they don't have another one of those.

PSP slim 2001 Hippy Vision / Blank Screen upon start up


hippy vision? HA HA! Well with gamestop if it's been past your 30 days to exchange your almost screwed...

Here is one solution if you want to try it.
Go back to game stop and buy a used psp that is identical to the one you have now. Take it home and with an exacto knife carefully remove the serial number on both PSPs and swap them out.

Return the crappy one and finsh your grueling RPG battle thus saving the world from doom due to a faulty PSP screen.

Not the most honest solution, but when you spen that kind of money....

Word of advice as well, NEVER BUY GAME STOP REFURBISHED. Refurbished means that when someone traded it, the thing was broken and gamestop attempted to fix it, and as you can see by your purchase they are not the best at it. A used system is tested to work right there in the store and is only sold if it plays and functions properly.

hope this helps.

Thats impossible you had to try downgrading or something, you said you "bought it brand new from the shop", go back and tell them if you had nothing to do with it.
