    Problem is simple: My 'new' secondhand PSP doesn't boot. No green light. When I put it on the charger it gives a orange light, but it still doesn't boot.

    Does it come on with the charger plugged in?

    oops missed the part about booting so I'd say it the psp itself

    I guess the problem is with the PSP itself. :|

    No battery, charger? Does it work then?
    Any sounds when you try to make it turn on?
    Sounds like a PSP problem, not a screen problem.

    Update: without battery, it sometimes boots.. But it shuts down again if I move to much..
    A mate will come at my house with his 100X + charger, so I'll update you guys with more info tomorrow.

    Okay.
    That's definitely a hardware problem.
    Related to the motherboard, it seems.

    My one psp 1000 had a mess up power switch. I took it apart to have a look see and just messed with the plastic slider a little worked fine afterwards. It did what yours is doing it would just shut off on it's own while playing if I moved the unit around too much.
