    I once dropped my PSP in the washing machine, i know smart right? Anyways ever since then the screen kept going out but it would pop back on. Well now it doesnt come on anymore. You can here everything when you turn it on but nothing on the screen. Now the question is do i need to replace just the screen or the screen and the backlight? i would like to get it all done in one shoot. Thanks

    I'm thinking it is your LCD screen and you would need to buy a new one I'm guessing. so search around but i think they are at least $40-$60 but i never had to buy one so not that sure.

    i found this using google...
    http://item.express.ebay.com/SONY-PS...mdZExpressItem

    it is $42.99 plus shipping

    if all you need is backlight though

    http://store.richspsxparts.com/pspbacklight.html

    its $28.95 but i bet ebay has good offers....

    the easy way would to buy a screen with backlight
    becuase theres no mucking round
    it's a simply install.
    but if you turn your psp on and you can see a picture just really dull
    then you just need a new backlight.

    you can buy the lcd and bacllight combo on ebay for around $40

    thats what i was thinking. when i turn it on there is nothing on the screen. The lcd/backlight combo seems much easier to install so i think i'll go that route. thanks for the help

    hmmm, LCD is definately broken, but you could always use RemoteJoy and play the screen would come up on the PC screen, that's depending on if you know what you're doing of course ..

    thanks for the advice but it kinda defeats the purpose of having a psp. I guess thats all its good for now. i'm almost to the point of sending it off to have it fixed.
