    You need something like this. You absolutely have to, must, must, must get a -2000 series screen as a replacement. -1000 and and -3000 screens are not compatible with the -2000, so make sure you are getting the correct screen!

    It's not a cheap part, because Sony doesn't sell replacement parts -- most part sites get theirs by dismantling new units. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to get a proper -2000 screen.

    Dealextreme.com sells replacement screens quite cheap.

    Ordered a Sharp one for my old PSP1000, just wanted to check if it was brighter / suffered less from ghosting than the original screen. And actually it did. The only downside is that you get no dead pixel warranty, but I guess you can live with a few dead pixels if it means you can use your PSP again.

    There are girls on the internet! [​IMG]

    Sorry Shelleson, and also don't discount UK shops...looks like you could get a PSP 2000 LCD from Amazon for a similar price to DX.

    Good Luck!

    How'd it break? You didn't do what I did to my old GBA, did you? Get pissed off with a game that was cheating like a bitch, lose temper and put knee through console at high speed?

    Yeah, that was stupid. I spent 4 months playing Gameboy Colour because of that. [​IMG]

    Go check Amazon instead of Dealextreme, I've had somebody get burned after ordering a 2k screen from DX, he got one that looked perfect, yet had about 7 dead pixels when he installed it and turned the PSP on
