Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Hello, My PSP turns on and off by itself. It had the same problem about 3 months ago. I had it fixed and they told me they replaced the flex cable. I noticed that this happens when the battery is completely discharged and I don't use the unit for more than 24 hours. Would this problem be caused by the flex cable again? Thanks.

I have 2002 Camry Le 4 cy.I was told that I need replace front pipe assembly & gasket (flex-pipe leaking) they said it would coast around 900 just for the part because there is catalytic con. but they...


The broken flex pipe can easily be fixed with a generic flex pipe for less then $100.
The catalytic converter is after that, so has nothing at all to do with it.
But cracks can also brazed or welded to fix.
However, the reason flex pipes break is from excessive engine movement.
That almost always means a loose bushing on a motor mount.
So do that first.
Should be less then $50.
Never take a car to a dealer unless you absolutely have to.
They charge twice what it should cost, because they want to sell new cars, not fix older ones.

The colour on my PSP screen is gone there is also a line across it


Hello,

Thank you for using Fixya!

If the LCD screen has a line across it, then it possible that your LCD is going bad. If you know how to open it see if the flex is still connected properly from the LCD to the PSP board. If not, I would suggest taking it to the repair shop if it can't be fix by the flex (cable that connects the LCD to the board) then this needs to be replace.

If you PSP is still under warranty then it best to have Sony fix this for you, they can even replace this with a new one or a refurbish one.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
stif_nec

No screen is coming on psp


Turn the PSP off and remove the battery and battery cover. Remove the two screws underneath the battery. Remove the other two screws on the opposite side of the battery. Remove the final screw on the bottom edge of the PSP.Grasp the PSP on both sides with each hand and pull the cover off of the PSP. Locate the button bar on the bottom front of the PSP. Use your flathead driver to lift up the left side of the button bar until it pops up off the LCD support. Lift the button bar cable tab upwards to remove the cable and remove the button bar.Insert your flat driver into the small space on the left side of the LCD screen between the the LCD housing and the LCD mounting bracket. Twist the screwdriver slightly and the mounting tabs will pop out. Gently remove the other side of the LCD after popping out the first side tabs. Bend the PSP screen all the way down until you can see the backside of the screen.

Lift up the flex cable connectors and unhook the cables that connect the screen to the PSP motherboard. The tabs are brownish in color; they are very fragile, so be gentle. Lift the PSP screen out of the housing and place to the side.Place your new PSP screen into the PSP, face down like you had the older screen after popping out the mounting tabs. Connect all of the cables from the PSP screen into the motherboard tabs. Fold the screen back into the bracket, snapping it into place. Place the button bar back onto the LCD support, connecting the last cable. Place the cover back onto the PSP and tighten screws to finish.

Volume buttons won't work, camera button wont work, and speakerphonew button wont work. Happened out of nowhere. Cannot lower/raise volume on side of phone, only vibrate works.


Hello.
Welcome to Fixya's Community.
These problems HAve been related to a damaged flex cable.

This is the cable which in the U700 connect the lower part of the phone to the lcd part (with the screen, speaker, camera and touchscreen buttons). All the data such as screen images, camera pictures, speaker sounds pass through this cable from the main board which is located in the lower part of the phone.

Unfortunately, each time one opens the phone, the cable slides between the two part of the phone. In the long term, as the cable is thin and soft and this movement causes frictions between the cable and the parts, the cable consumes itself. the damage of the cable could results in weird effects on the phone.


In order to fix that you need to replace that part.
its easy.
just take the phone apart and locate the flex cable and replace it.
believe me you can do it yourself.
  • The Flex cable of your phone cost 3 $
  • A phone repair shop will fix that for 25 $

see if you can find it on eBay.
remember its SCH-U700 Not SGH-U700 there is a big difference.

Good Luck

They should have replaced it right then. They know that it should be replaced if the EGR valve itself goes bad. They are trained in this and know what they are supposed to do. Tell them if they do not repair it right like they should hae 3 months ago you will go to the BBB and so on to get things right..

Samsung a950 main screen display is backwards and upside down


My Samsung U700 had the same problem (display went back-to-front and colours all reversed and low-res.) It seems to be a problem with the flex cable (the cable between the main phone body and the sliding screen) wearing down and screwing up the data being carried between the display and the phone. Flex cables are cheap to buy and there's plenty of info online showing how to replace them yourself. Good-luck. Google: samsung u700 replacement flex cable

Battery Or Charging Problem.


Have you updated your firmware recently? Check your PSP to make sure there aren't any loose connections. If you're comfortable with it, you could open it up and make sure the plug for the charger didn't come loose somewhere. It may just need a touch of solder to put it back into place.
