I'm one of those people that refistered this site just so i can try to fix this problem.

Anyways...

Hopefully, you still have the same psp, because I'm about to try to solve the problem. I had this problem too, well, to be more specific, when I turned on my psp, everything worked fine, the sound, the volume, gameplay, charging, the whoe nine yards, but no screen, even during the start-up. So one day, I just started pressing the display button (the button on the bottom of the screen that adjusts the brightness of the screen) while I turned on the psp, the screen appeared. So, what I'm saying, is to do this:

1. Turn off the PSP completely off
2. When you turn it back on, press the display button rapidly as it starts up.
3. Repeat step 1 and do step 2 faster.

Hope this helps!!!

Dealextreme.com has replacement LCDs for $35 at the time i'm checking now. Forgive me for stating the obvious, but have you tried hitting the brightness button (squarish button on the bottom panel)?

You prolly need a new lcd. go to ebay or google and buy a new lcd or a lcd+backlight combo which will run about 60.00 open the psp and replace the lcd and the issue will be solved.

Psp power up green lights on black screen after a few seconds shuts down psp slim


it sounds like you bricked you psp, if it's not a 3000 or psp go you can probably fix it by buying a pandora battery and magic memory stick.  you can buy them from here http://pandorasales.com/?gclid=CNLk1fzUzqgCFcO8KgodAzI2lA , if you are running a psp 3000 and up, you could try to format your memory stick but it probably won't work.

Psp will not come on and it has a new battery in


well it sounds to me like you need a pandora battery because your psp lost alot of memory. you can find one in a gamestop or walmart or radioshack. and taget too. and when u get, turn the psp on and let the psp load up it memory.

The screen went black


You can try plugging it in to your tv via a component cable and see if it works. If it does then you have a screen issue, if not, then you have a mobo issue. either way, sell it on ebay.

My PSP is on and has sound but the screen remain black and it won't work


You probably either have a bad back light wich if you hold your psp up very close 
to a light you will be able to see the display or your screen and light have gone bad
in wich case you can buy a new screen on ebay here is a link
http://shop.ebay.com/items/_W0QQ_nkwZpspQ20lcdQ20screensQQ_armrsZ1QQ_fromZR40QQ_mdoZ

and here is a link on how to replace the screen

In order to do this you will have to void your warranty :\ but it should fix the problem

New game wont start


This is terrible to say, and I feel bad for you. This sounds as though your PSP is Bricked. Tell all your friends if they are asked to upgrade by a game, plug up your PSP to the power cord and keep it charged during the upgrade needed to run the new games. If your power fails during the upgrade, you will BRICK your PSP. Contact Sony, its their fault. www.playstation.com
