Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

Dropped my daughters PSP

I just got her this PSP, the old one. I dropped it by mistake. Now the green power light comes on, but the screen stays black. What can I do? This was her gift for moving from Elementary school to Middle school, she just received it and used it for 1/2 hour. I feel so bad, what can I do. Its not working,, please let me know how to fix it. Did anything break inside?

If its not an LCD problem....

this is what we call a BRICK ...

usually this happens when you are upgrading your firmware
then the upgrading process is interrupted (empty batt.. etc)

you could send it back to sony and have them fix it

OR

buy a new motherboard ... costs half the price of a psp unit i think

OR

get pandoras battery and magic memory stick and resurrect your psp :D

*google for pandoras battery and read up *

Green light but nothing comes on


It seems that inside your PSP the LCD Screen Connection cable (The broad One) which is connected to the motherboard is being loose contact so if you can open the PSP try it by re-fixing the cable again otherwise you better go for a technician who will do the same job for you.

Dropped my PSP! Screen Blank!


Well if that`s true that if a handheld is broken when dropped then I shouldn`t have any working handhelds. Well, if you still have the companies number you should call Sony and ask them.

ps, tell them it was your friends.

Psp screen won't turn on


Did you download any firmware? What version of updates are you on? Its possible that your PSP is bricked. Which basically means that you hit a one out of one-hundred chance of you PSP being locked up and useless for that matter.
