    I can play a game on my psp but can only see half of the screen after I dropped it. It looks like the screen is cracked but I cannot feel it externally. Would getting a new lcd fix the problem?

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

It's just the inverter component. Buy a new inverter and change it.

Your screen may be broke you can buy a replacement or if you go to ebay.com and type in psp repair you will find people who will fix it for you.

Go to llama.com - lots of replacement parts along with instructions. I repaired my son's PSP - replaced screen - and it was fairly easy.

You can open the PSP and just lift the LCD Screen up be sure before lifting LCD Screen one thin Switch panel of micro buttons Home,VOL,select etc, you have to remove this first then only it is possible to lift the LCD Screen and after that you check that broad connection strip which is fixed with the motherboard socket you remove it this strip and refixed it again,your problem should get solved if suppose your LCD Screen is not broken.

My little brother droppe my psp it charges but when you turn it on the light goes on for 3 seconds but it shows no pictures


With the PSP The screen in it is very delicate, I have replaced hundreds of broken screens like this if you can find someone to open it and check pulling the top plate off will atleast let you see if the damage is on the screen or not. there will be a crack most likely in the middle along the blackest part of the screen.

PSP BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON NOTHING ELSE


with the PSP being dropped, keep in mind that you might have a cracked board. Best thing to do if you have the tools is to open it and see if there are any cracks in the board, if there isnt' then look for loose cables and reseat them and see what happens.

If you still can't get the psp to turn on then the board is still bad and would need to be replaced or to get a new PSP.

Cracked psp screen


Youll have to open it up and look if the screen is cracked or the cover, the screen is behind the clear perspex of the outer case.
If its the screen then this will help:

Psp blackness


dropped it? if yes, you must have a hardware problem. like notebooks, when dropped becomes black because of the light inside of it breaking with the impact.
or must be a contact problem.

in the best case, just update it the last version.

Hi Gohan102,

 

Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....

Well, this might not be right, but check the Brightness. Hit 2nd, then the down arrow. repeat this a few times. see if that works.
