how did it stand up, I dropped mine in a pool. It stayed down there for like a half an hour before I noticed. I fished it out, dried it out and it still works fine 1.5 yrs later

does it still have the warranty? If not, call playstation and complain, they might send you a new one, or they might send some money.

You *might* be able to buy a replacement screen from Sparkfun... if you're still having the problem. I don't really reccomend it, though. Google around abit first ;-)

99.9% its the screen, If it was the motherboard you wouldn't have that chuck of working screen on the left. Screens are cheap on ebay Hope that helps, Joe (P.S. Whats better a cheaper screen with a dead pixel or two or no screen at all!)

It looks like the screen is fine, no cracks... I don't think you "broke" the screen, but badly damaged its computer system that controls the screen image...

Apparently you have already taken the liberty of taking it apart! Congratulations! You might be able to pick up a spare screen. I know that I was able to find a screen for my DS, was about to buy one, but then my DS got lost... (the bottom screen was heavily scratched). Try dealextreme.com

That's what's wrong with the PSP, it wasn't built for floor dropping.

also keep them away from high levels of humidity, dust, oil from fingerprints (as they will eat away at the plastic) and heavy usage yes PSPs are hardy

It's just one more button push, probably the left scroll button on your d-pad, correct?

I've been through two different models of fujifilm in the past while, while quite different in appearance, they still have a relatively similar button layout. The fuji I got now has two magnifications of macro, not including the optical zoom.

Fuji's have the left on the D-pad, so do canons and olympus...

Yeah, assuming he used a Fuji, Canon, or Olympus, the macro button probably is the left button on the D-pad.

If we assume.

Just hypothetically.
