How to Replace a PSP Screen
1. Remove all accessories from your PSP. This includes games and memory sticks.
2. Remove the cover of your PSP's analog stick. Pull the circular portion of the stick away from the PSP, and it will slide off.
3. Place your PSP face down on a clean, flat surface.
4. Remove the battery cover from the back of the system. Take out the battery and place it aside.
5. Locate the five screws on the back of the PSP. There is one screw in each corner, with the screw in the bottom-left corner slightly obscured by the warranty sticker. A fifth screw is located on the bottom of the PSP in the center, next to a sticker with a bar code and serial number on it.
6. Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove each screw from the back of the PSP. Do not tear off the warranty sticker covering the fourth screw---instead, fold it back just enough so you can access the screw. If the warranty sticker covering the screw is damaged, it will void your PSP's warranty.
7. Lift the back of the PSP off the faceplate. Put the faceplate aside and place the PSP on its back.
8. Use a flat-head screwdriver to push out the clips holding the PSP's screen in place. There are two clips on each end of the screen. Insert the flat-head screwdriver into the area between the clip and the metal perimeter of the screen. Tilt the screwdriver toward the center of the PSP, which will cause the clips to push outward and release the screen.
9. Lift the top of the PSP screen and bring it forward. This will reveal two brown cables bonded to the PSP screen that attaches the screen to the motherboard.
10. Use your flat-head screwdriver to push up the clasps connecting the cables to the motherboard. Gently slide the cables out and fully detach the PSP screen.
11. Position the replacement screen so it is face down and resting on the bottom portion of the PSP.
12. Plug the brown cables that are bonded to your new PSP screen into the same clasps you removed the cables for the cracked screen from. Use your flat-head screwdriver to lift the clasps up as you put the cables in place.
13. Fit the screen into place and push the four clips back in, securing the new PSP screen. You can push the clips back into place with your finger until they fit snugly around the screen.
14. Reattach the faceplate and place the battery back into the system. Power the console on, and the screen should light up.
