I purchased, on the cheap, a PSP from a friend of mine. He shipped it to me in a less than favorable manner. So I suspect something got banged up, but anyway.. I got the PSP and the battery was drained. I forgot the thing didn't come with a charger so I grabbed a charger that fit and output the 5V the PSP required (according to the sticker by the charger port anyway). Success! the thing began charging and after a while I began to play around with the home screen a bit. Changing my theme color, setting my name, adding my network, etc. Then I started to play a game (FF7: CC) the game loaded up fine so I exited back to the menu and continued fiddling with that. At some point I realized the screen colors looked completely wrong. Inverted, even. Here's what I'm looking at. Here's what I've tried: Restarting PSP Removing battery, restoring it, then turning on PSP Playing without the charger Doing a factoy reset via PSP menu Wiping memory card via PSP menu Updating firmware to 3.8 from 3.73 (I'd heard reflashing firmware could fix this problem) Here's what I know about the PSP: It's a PSP-1000 (says 1001, but I've only seen references to PSP-1000, 3000, etc.) Firmware version 3.8 No custom firmware installed 32MB mem card My guess is either it got knocked around during shipping and the ribon cabble connecting the screen to the mobo got knocked out of place or it almost did and me fiddling with it so much knocked it way out of place. Or my unofficial charger did something to it. But I find that unlikely because it was working fine for the first 15 mins or so while charging with it. Tomorrow I'm going to be visiting my parents and that's where all of my smaller tools are at so I'm going to try to take this thing apart and check any loose cables. I had loose ribbon cable problems with my DSlite before so I'm hoping it's that because it's an easy/free fix.
