You should first contact Sony and see what they say. They might be able to re-place it if it is less than a year.

Psp When I turn it on, only the green LED goes comes


If you can hear sound then the problem is most likely your LCD screen. look at the screen under a bright light. if you can make out a faint picture then your backlight is out. Usually this means your screen needs to be replaced. replacement screens can be found on ebay for about $25

If you cannot hear sound or see anything on the screen then you have a more general motherboard failure of some kind and should bring it to a service technician.

Psp1004 start up and click sounds hears but no backup


clicking sound is coming from the umd drive. no picture would be either the light or the main board is bad in the PSP.

To fix both issues would cost more then just getting a new psp. Get a new psp.

PSP Not Loading Games


You most likely need to clean the lens. Local game stores have kits that clean it for you.

Memory stick duo won't read!


You probably need a new memory stick module inside the PSP. I have seen this many times in my store and we replaced the board and it worked fine. Contact your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. See if there is a Play-N-Trade within your area. I work at one and we do repairs. I'm not sure if Gamestop or Gamecrazy do repairs.

My son dropped a toy on the screen of his PSP slim. Now when you turn it on, you get some black and grey lines, but no picture. You can't even tell something was dropped on it. The glass itself is fine...


Unfortunately, your son may have damaged the back light in the PSP. The only way to repair this is to take it to a local repair shop and have them remove the old PSP screen and put in a new one. It is possible that the connection to the motherboard and the screen has become looser, but I want to prepare you for the worse.

Cracked PSP Screen


Here is where you can get the screen for the Psp. I do not know where you live so I can not tell you if you can get it local. But you can get them from this site.

Psp My son sat on it,an when he turned it on behind the screen colour comes up an you can see moving of the game,but it broke as you can`t see anything other then colour. Can you help? what would you say...


Hi. Kieran.

I don't want to be the person to give bad news, but after reasearching your question for you it sounds like you son broke the psp. The color screen behind the lsd screen is damaged and usually cannot be repaired by an unqualified person. If you were to bring the system to be repaired between labor and costs, it may be cheaper to buy a new PSP.

Hopefully, depending on how long you have had the PSP you may be under a warranty.

What I suggest is to call Sony. See if you are under warranty, and have it replaced for no cost to you. Otherwise you will have to purchase a new PSP.

The number for Sony is found on the back of almost all of the psp video game manuals.

I hope I was able to fixya problem, and I wish you and your son Happy Gaming!

PSP console not working


you failed to state if your son was doing the update via UMD disc. im inferring so, so if the battery died while it was updating, your sons PSP is bricked. you need a Pandora battery + magic memory stick. you can find them on ebay, amazon, anywhere. also if you ask around where you live some people may do it locally.

My psp screen is too dark


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
