reverse order to replace door handle
pop the rear deck lid and remove the right rear plastic trunk cover. To do this you will remove the small plastic piece that is directly in front of the right rear tail light. Then remove the big plastic screw that retains the center plastic deck lid cover. Now remove the three 10mm nuts that keep the right rear plastic cover secured. Remove the right rear plastic cover. Be careful as it can crack if you put too much pressure on it. Look inside and to the right rear where the antenna mast comes up. You will see a small 10mm nut that holds the antenna mast to the body. Take that nut off. This will release the outer body cover from the inner cover. Remove the outer body cover and then remove the two screws from the OUTSIDE of the body cover. Now follow the antenna body down and you will see two or three additional small nuts that hold the antenna assembly metal bracket in place. Remove these. Unplug the antenna co-ax cable from the input. It just slides out. Unplug the antenna connection as well. This is the jack that has the power wires. You will also need to unscrew the ground wire from the inner body frame. There might be a nut on top of the actual antenna mast. If so, just unscrew it. The entire antenna assembly will now lift out. It's a mildly tight fit but you don't need to be too gentle in this step. Normally the problem is the antenna belt has broken inside the antenna assembly and there is no hope of replacing that belt. You have to replace the entire assembly. I found mine on Craigslist from a guy parting his totaled Z. May it rest in peace. His loss - my gain! Typical price is $65, maybe you can talk him down to $50. Installation is the above process in reverse.
Your LCD/monitor is cracked from the inside. There are several things that can
cause a screen to crack from the inside. The two most common are
pressure on the screen or dropping the
machine. Sorry, but it is irreparable. You need to buy a replacement.
The outside part that you can touch is just a plastic cover to protect the screen. The inside is actually where the lcd screen is. If the screen looks cracked then it most likely is. Its gonna be $89 to send your psp in to sony, call 1-800-345-7669 if thats what you wanna do.
The LCD screens are built with a over-cover of a plastic film and the LCD is inside the cover. Any damage on the LCD glass will not be felt physically on the outside of the screen. So, chances are your LCD is cracked if you find a spider web or a liquid spill effect visible.
