Is this fixable?
Hey, i droped my PSP today and it fell on the soft carpet... but i guess on the way down it must of hit something but i dont remember it hitting anything ( i noticed it broken a while later) It turns on fine, the buttons work fine eveyrthing is good, the screen is NOT even cracked on the outside. But it does have little lines and half the time it is in Black and White. Is there a EASY fix to this? Maybe like just replacing the screen or something? If someone can help me with this or point me in the direction of people that do fix these types of things let me know! Theres a few pics and a video of what happens. Again everything works fine, the outside is NOT cracked but there are lines that go up and down and one that looks like a crack but everythings on the inside. Thanks
The PSP screen is broken and you can either live with it, replace it or if you have warranty traded it in. The PSP does not need to hit something for the screen to break because the shock of it hitting the floor has the force required to damage the screen. It can only handle so much stress.
you can get PSP LCDs for like 50$, buy one then replace it
That's what I was hoping for. Has anyone replaced their screen before? Is it hard or easy to mess up? I rhink I'm going to do that. I'm going to open it tonight. Hoperfuly then ill be able to make sure its just the screen. I was looking for screens and they were around 40-50. Anyone have anything else that will be helpful? Thanks again
well i hear that the lcd is sorta fragile and that you avoid touching the front of it. as for taking it out... i think that it takes a lot to do. Harleyg used to have a howto thread on pspprogramming opening the psp and i think it went past removing the faceplate.
remove the faceplate(easy), remove the home - start row buttons(easy), pop out the screen(a little tricky but still easy), disconnect the cables(easy).
the hardest part is plugging in the ribbon cables.
heres a guide:
when you buy your screen make sure its the one you want. they sell them with and without the backlight attached. with the backlight cost more but its easier to install. without is cheaper but a little harder to install.
Yeah i used that tutorial. I took out the screen successfuly and just gotta wait for the new screen tomorrow. My back light is fine but my screen has a crack. It kinda sucks that it broke from the carpet but it was fun to open it at least! Thanks
Well it's open, you might want to remove the top-right screw in the UMD rive to make it close better. That is, if it doesn't close right currently.
