Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

My PSP was in my pocket while playing basketball and now the screen is messed up.

When I turn on my PSP it turns on but the colors are like lines of different colors going vertically on the screen. If the screen gets touched at all the colors will change. I can still listen to music but I can't see what im doing because of the screen problem. Please help me.

    The screen does not show any of the normal colors when i turn it on, but the sound works just fine. I'm hoping that i won't have to buy a new once because i just purchased this one 3 days ago. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure that too much pressure was applied to the screen im just wondering if there is an easy or somewhat inexpensive way to solve the problem. Any help is appreciated.

    My son's playstation has colored verticle lines. Because it is less than a year old, I sent it to Sony for repair. They claimed that the LCD screen was cracked I explained that if this was the case it was not visible, Sony claimed the PSP was cracked on the inside. Never the less, they do not repair the units, the required me to pay an additional $90.00 to exchange the unit. I asked if there were any authorized repair centers to take the PSP in for repair, I was told no by Sony, that was my only option. I had the PSP returned untouched.

Then there is a malfunctioning with the psp i suppose. if u just purchased it, go back to the shop and tell them there is something wrong with it. and they should repair it or if they cant they should replace it. it still should be under warranty, if not then if im not mistaken , by customer's rights we can return a good under 7 days. double check tho.

assuming u didnt drop the psp or damage it in other ways...

My screen wont turn on

u have a failed reader chip or a dead screen! return the device as soon as u can remember u a actually don't need a slip for proof of purchase! the store generally must have record of transactions, just have the date and time of purchase and they by LAW must have a record of it. so get it swapped over

PSP black line on bottom of screen

This is definitely a broken LCD display screen. Since it's out of warranty you'll have to pay to have Sony repair it or just buy a new one. Bummer. Sorry to hear that you're having this trouble.
