There are two possible problems with the PSP.
The first is that the connection between the wire connecting the screen and the mother board has become loose. Vertical lines are often signs that the screen is not receiving all the data required to fill every line.
More likely, the lines on the screen were severely damaged from the drop, rendering them inactive. This means that you will require a new screen.
Because of the purchase date, your product is still under Sony's initial warranty. This means you can request a repair or a new device. I have included a link to the "Service Request Page" to speed things along for you. Note that there is a $50 fee for replacing and diagnosing a problem with a device. While it may seem costly, due to the early age of the device, it may be best to go through Sony as not to void the warranty.

My son's psp game is downloaded..the problem is it goes slowmotion every game he play.... what will we do?


Hi there.
Try increasing the PSP's "CPU Clock Game" by doing this;
1. In the main screen, press "SELECT" button and XMB or VSH Menu shows up 2. Scroll down to "CPU Clock Game" which is usually second from top 3. Press "Arrow Right" until the value on the right shows 333/166 (300/150 will also do).
I hope this solves your (and your son's) problem...

The motherboard inside the unit is very fragile, it is possible several key components have become dislodged and so the unit will no longer work.

My son dropped his psp on the floor!!!


Yes this can be fixed... it sounds as though the LCD screen [the screen on the inside] has become damaged with the fall. The following website sells the LCDs and does replacements. The cost depends on the model of the PSP that you own. You can find the model number of your PSP on a label inside the back of the PSP if you remove the battery. Check them out:

your sons psp is bricked download this and follow what i say Pandora Deluxe 1.2 and this 4.01 official firmware
Open the Pandora Deluxe 1.2 and install.
Unrar the 4.01 official firmware and place the EBOOT.PBP in a folder on your desktop named 4.01.

Connect your
PSP and enable USB. Start the Pandora Deluxe 1.2 program, while it is starting it will ask you if a certain drive letter is your PSP, make sure it is correct and click ok.

Click on the "Load 4.01 firmware" button and it will ask for the location of it. Find the 4.01 folder on your desktop, double click it and it will show EBOOT.PBP, select it and clickk OK. Then check the install box next to it. In the colum to the right select "Despertar Cementerio v7 (4.01m33-2)". Now just below that in the center is a drop down box with DCv7 next to it, drop the box down and select LEFT. In the box right below it check Format + Prepare Memory Stick, If you need to backup your memory stick select it. Make sure that the PSP Drive letter is correct and when you are ready to start press START.

When the operation is complete, disable the USB, disconnect the PSP and turn off. Remove the battery. Hold down the LEFT Trigger while inserting the PANDORA battery and continue to hold until the menu comes up.

Select NAND operations, then IDStorage tools. In that follow the prompts on the screen. Select your region, then turn on wifi switch and pres x to Get Real Mac and continue on till finished.

When the football hit the psp, it could have knocked some hardware out of place, possibly on the motherboard. If you know what you are doing, you could open up the PSP and re attach the piece, or find someone who knows how to fix it.
