Is there any way to fix it? http://imgur.com/7UoVirc
depends, what did you do to it to cause that?
I don't know, my friend gave it away since he didn't use it.
That really looks messed up. Don't think it is software-related, tbh. Though it could be, not sure.
Can I update the software?
Huh, what's the software version? Does it run CFW? I doubt it is a firmware issue, though. It looks way too messed up.
System software 3.95
It seems to have gotten worse
3.95? He mustn't have updated that thing since around '08. Try turning it on with just the charger (take the battery out) if it doesn't boot up open the UMD tray, leave it open and try again. The screen could have gotten damage. But got to make sure it's not power related.
With the psp on, tap the back of it and all over. Maybe use a marker to tap. It'll make better vibrations than a finger with skin. If you see the screen flicker, it's probably a loose ribbon cable from a drop. Who knows though, one can only guess. It's not software related though.
Boots up just fine

Few tryes didn't get screen flicker but got moving pixels next to that white line
The screen is the easiest part to replace and are pretty cheap. Here is a guide. When you open it, be careful of the ribbon cables. I'm not saying that this is your trouble, but the screen (the cables to it) are highly suspect. If I was you, I'd pop the battery back in after I get the faceplate off and wiggle those ribbon cables.
Thanks I will try that
I've replaced a couple of screens on PSP's I've picked up cheap from pawn shops over the years
it is a pretty simple fix if the parts are available
Same, it doesn't take too much time to replace either. I suppose if the OP is not certain about the steps to take, there are indeed teardown guides online.
