    The more I use my PSP, the more these discolored lines appear on my PSP screen. The lines disappear when I reinstall CFW, but they eventually come back. I don't want to reinstall CFW, so does anyone have any idea?

    If they're what I think they are, they look like corrupted patches on the screen, right?

    That's just dirty trapped in a scratch in the screen. Or possibly underneath the screen, but that's pretty rare. Give it a damn good clean and see if that helps. Either that or replace the screen.

    At a guess, as the screen warms up the line gets worse I am assuming the line is right across the screen, if this is the case I would say the screen or mother board requires to be replaced

    The lines go from top to bottom and reflashing the PSP didn't fix the problem this time ><

    I asked on a different forum for a fix, but right now, the only fix for me is to replace the screen.

    Well then you have your answer. Before it would come up after the unit heated up a bit internally, and now it's there always. You got a fucked up screen, ribbon going to the screen, or motherboard.
