    my friend had a psp, and he traded it to another friend. after the new kid had it for a while the screen broke. it isnt physically damaged. after the kid realized it was broken, he traded something else to one of my good friends. my friend said he turned it on once and half the screen came on then the battery died.

    he sold it to me for 5 dollars. no memory stick. no game. no headphones, no case, or charger. so i have ordered a car and wall charger from bestbuy, and im buying the stock memory card from a friend for another 5 dollars.

    my question is what can i do to get the screen fixed. i have taken apart many a cell phones and fixed things. can i replace the LCD myself? or should i find one of those places that i send it to with a money order and send it to them? where can i buy a new screen?

    i am mostly interested in the wi-fi capabilities of this. if i dont like it ill probably be ebaying it. i read that the new firmware has better webbrowsing abilities. how can i find out if mine came with it, and if it didnt where can i get it from?

    nice to be on this forum, i like it so far. thanks for any help i get in advance.

    replacing the screen is VERY easy, im sure you can replace it with no problem whatsoever, ebay has the LCD for maybe $30-60... theres a tutorial here

    do you think

    have fun man, wifi is awesome, but everything else is even better!

    its so easy to do, my great grandmother can do it, and shes dead!

    ok so all the stuff is in the mail. im thinking i would really like to put emulators on this. super nintendo and playstation. but i dont want to but homebrew firmware on it yet, so when i get it going i was just going to do the update to get the 3.03 or whatever is most current, and then go from there. i have a 4gb mem card coming in so i have plenty of room for roms and such. what roms will work without having the homebrew firmware? my friend told me i can still play roms, but not as many as if i had flashed it.

    A - please dont double post
    B - NO HOMEBREWS will work on sony's firmware... why dont you want custom firmware? if you have sonys firmware, all you can do is buy maybe a few out of 10 psx games from the ps3 store (ps3 required)
    C - try pressing the box button next to the music button
