Default 2nd hand psp

So i bought a psp and it's screen turns partly gray(small portion) but in the ad it didn't say that the screen would get distorted because of the gray area.


Another part of the screen turned gray while i was playing it(again not mentioned in the ad) distorting the screen so badly that i couldn't make out the image anymore in certain parts.

Is there anything i could do?




Uploaded with ImageShack.us

That's the screen.

Also when i start the psp the gray area is only half as large and the other half turns gray in the first 5 seconds after it's turned on(i can see the colors of the portion before it turns gray).

I've reuploaded with imageshack.


Edit: I've talked with a local hacker and he said that the console might've been dropped, the problem might not be screen related and that i should bring it to him to take a look.

Looks like a screen problem from that image.

Ok, screen problem, but the guy i took it to to look at it keeps saying that the image is overlapping itself and it might be the motherboard at fault.

Could it be the mother board or should i just buy a screen?


I also found this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftHa-3caedg

It had the exact same lines but no overlapping image, could the connectors be at fault or should i send for a new screen?

It would be great if you can find someone with the same PSP and knows how to do swap test part by part.

You can sort of test, if it is the connection by hitting against the palm of your hand.
Usually the vibration will cause faulty connections to trigger something else.

How dangerous would it be to open the psp up and try it myself?

Which version of PSP is it?
Just find a guide and it shouldn't be that hard.
I think probably PSP Go is the hardest due to the slider.

EDIT: shouldn't
