Introduction: Replacing PSP 1000 Screen

So last summer, my sister broke my psp by dropping it. At the worst possible moment, we were heading down to san diego in two days : (

Anyway, it has been laying around useless for 3/4 a year, so i decided to finally fix it.

Step 1: The Parts/tools

To preform this procedure, you'll need;

-PSP with a broken screen
-A new screen
-A sturdy philips screwdriver
-Air compressor/canned air
-Toilet paper
-A magnet
-Flat head

Optional
-New faceplate
-Screen Protector

Step 2: Tear Down

Take out the battery and memory card.

Locate the 5 screws, two on each side, and one in the center.

Now firmly grip your psp, the screws are very tightly screwed in, if you do not apply enough pressure, you can strip the screw.

As you remove the screws, stick them to your magnet

Step 3: Removing Buttons at the Bottom

Now that your faceplate is off, you need to remove the button on the bottom of the screen.

With your flat head, pry the little clips holding the buttons in place.

Leave the button bar connected to the motherboard.

Step 4: Extracting the Screen

The screen in held by 4 clips, one at each corner.
You'll need to gently pry the screen out

Once that has been accomplished, flip the screen out towards you.
You need to undo the ribbon cable clamps.
The best way to do this is to use your trusty flathead, CAREFULLY open the clamps.

Step 5: Place Your New Screen Into Position

Reverse the steps to put the screen in.
Try not to get any finger prints on the new screen.

Connect the ribbon cables to the clamps, insert and close them.

Press the screen into place.

After you pop the screen back, try turning on your psp, if the screen light up, congrats!

If not;
-check the connection to the lcd
-you got shipped a broken screen
-your motherboard is broken (sorry i wasted your time and money :(

Step 6: Put the Button Bar Back in It's Place

Press the button bar back on, at the bottom of the screen.

Do not scratch the screen.

Step 7: Clean the Screen

Gently wipe any fingerprints off of the screen, it's okay to get lint on the screen.

Get your air compressor/canned air, blow all the lint from the toilet paper off the screen.

Step 8: Re-assemble

Check that everything fits, by aligning your faceplate with your psp, adjust if it does not fit.

Grab your canned air/Compressor, blast air under the screen as you press you lower the screen into position. You do NOT want any dust to be trapped in your PSP

Screw the screws into place.

Step 9: Add Screen Protector

I like to have a clean screen, so i use a screen protector to keep it scratch-free.

Drop the screen protector into place, and squeegee the air out.

Enjoy your fixed PSP

I'm using this to fix my screen

where could I buy the PSP Screen cheap one at online store?

ebay has the cheapest screens, make sure that it's compatible with your version or PSP i got mine for about $20

found one on amazon.com for 15 bucks... Sharp Brand (for the Phat)

those are 'used' screens, they have been pulled from working PSPs

NEW LCD screens for the PSP 1000 can be purchased on amazon (as of this writing) for $17. These screen are OEM "Sharp" and are not used.

Anyway, why doesn't anyone ever mention replacing the dust gasket on these screens? I guess I'll write a "proper" replacement guide for replacing the screen on a PSP 1000, since I didn't find a single complete guide anywhere on the internet.

not this one.. still had the blue plastic and foam packaging around it. and its Sharp too. not a refurb thats for sure.

just buy the $20 model, i'm sure it will work

wow! it was so cheap...
i'll try to search it on ebay now..

ty =]

at here I can only found the LCD on game store. and priced around $70... it was so expensive..

rule of thumb: if you can buy it online, you can buy it cheaper on ebay
