Thin black line across display screen on psp

Hi, my psp has a thin black line which runs horizontally across the display screen at all times. It doesn't interfere with them working, it's just there all the time. It's abount half an inch from the top of the screen. There is no ther damage to the psp. Do you know what it is, how it got there and can I get rid of it? Thank you

    Hi, it's not brand new but is recently bought. I don't know if it has been dropped. My son isn't admitting to anything. I have been reading that if a psp is dropped it ruins the screen. Is that right? It just seems wierd that only one perfect line is running across the screen and everything works as normal otherwise. Thanks.

    hi, i have the same issue. I turned it on one day and a thin black line appeared that stretched across the middle of the screen. I haven't dropped it or anything...its just so frustrating since its brand new and Ive only had it for a couple of months. I've still got the warranty on it so hopefully Sony will be able to give me a new system. =]

    I purchased a brand new PSP and opened the box, turned it on and the line was there. I never even had the chance to drop it. Is it fixable under Sony's warranty. Or is that what you are talking about when you say it will cost more than it is worth?

    Actually, the line on my screen is purple, however it changes colors when I change the background color.

A horizontal thin black line has appeared across screen.


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Thin horizontal black line appeared lower half of


Fixed non moving lines usually means you have a problem in the panel display or t-con. If it is in warranty get it to a factory authorized service center. If not you can try to change the t-con and see if this fixes the problem, if not then it will be the panel it's self and will be cost prohibitive to repair.

Many thin black horizontal lines on my Hitachi Ultravision 50" TV


Good Day, LDS also;
You may have a poor seated cable connector. Unplug TV from A/C, remove back look for a large black connector. It connects between the Main Digital Module and the Drive PWB. Re-insert both ends several times to make better contact, use contact cleaner if have but not always needed. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Black line running horizontally across TV screen


A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.
