    So my fan fell out of my window, like in early january, and landed right ontop of my vita, which was plugged in charging directly underneath it..
    As you can guess, my vita hasn't been the same. I beliiiiiiieve i had 3.52 or 3.55 on it, but i cant remember too well. Either way, I'm looking to replace the screen somehow, or buy a new one.. I'm just a poor fucker right now and can't afford the latter lol..
    here's what the thing looks like:

    Unfortunately due to the way OLEDs are built and applied, replacement isn't really any option as far as I know. :(

    Happy furry land with Lucar
    Does it still turn on and work just like normal? If so I wouldn't worry much so long as you don't use the touch screen alot.

    Today I found, haggled for, and bought an used PS Vita in person for 50 euros. I'd say you try to do the same. It was really dirty but after cleaning and installing HENkaku, I'm really happy with the investment, despite being a fellow poor fucker. I'd say you do the same \o/
