PSP Slim, picture problems

My nephew is having problems with is PSP slim. The PSP can power up, but no picture. You can hear the sound when you're on the main menu and pressing the directional keypad. He said that sometimes, the picture will come on when he turns on the unit again. I ordered him a new Sharp LCD screen online and replaced the existing screen, thinking that this would solve his problems. Fortunately, the picture did come on after the initial replacement. Unfortunately, after a few times of powering off the unit, we would encounter the problem again. So can anyone please help me help my nephew...? My sister is insisting on buying a refurbished unit, but it's just several bucks shy of purchasing a brand new unit. Please help...

    Unfortunately, we did not purchase it at Best Buy. His mom purchased it from Game Stop on Guam and they do not offer a replacement plan. It was the White Darth Vader edition or something and it was purchased last Christmas. My sister cannot find her receipt and the in-store warranty has long expired. But thanks for trying...

If he bought it from best buy, ask for a two year reeplacment plan. after that, you tell them what happend to your psp. by the way, the replacment plan is only $29.99. They will either try to fix it, or they will give you a new psp, the same exact type as you said psp slim, for free. But heres a catch. after you use the replacment plan once, you may not be able to use it again. good luck. P.S. what happend to your nephew, is what happend to me.

Hello there

Download MPH Downgrader and Firmware version you want(e.g 1.50) to the Windows-based computer. Connect the PSP Slim to the computer's USB port using the USB connector. Transfer the two programs to the main folder of the PSP Slim. Disconnect the PSP Slim from the computer's USB hub when the transfer is complete.

Turn on the PSP Slim. Go to the Settings/USB Connection in the Home menu and select the EBOOT.PBP file in the PSP\GAME\UPDATE update folder. Extract the MPH Downgrader zip file to the root folder of the PSP. Click OK using the X button if you are prompted that this will replace some files.

Go to Photo/Memory Stick in the Home menu. Wait as the screen goes black and numbers appear. Wait two minutes and then press and hold the power switch until the PSP Slim turns off. Release the power switch.

Wait as the PSP Slim turns on and reboots. Go to Game/Memory Stick in the Home menu and select PSPS Update version 1.50. Press the X button to start the update.

Wait as the update finishes and presents an error message. Press the O button to restart the PSP.

I have sound, but no picture. The screen is a faded blue or green


It sounds like you need a new LCD screen. That should fix the problem. They are very easy to install, just make sure you get a SHARP brand, and also be sure to get it for the right model. Currently three different types of LCD screens, one for PSP 1000 (original fat) models, one for PSP Slim (2000) series, and Slim 3000 series. They run about $50-$75 but should fix your problem. Hey it's cheaper than buying a new PSP right?
