    Okay so i bought a PSP 2001 a little while ago at a flea market and dood said that the screen was busted
    when i turn on the psp the screen comes on but its black, and im not sure when i had the old screen in but im sure, it made sound

    so i bought and replaced the Screen, but the same thing happened. you can tell the screen is on but its black, and went i press the dpad u can hear sounds like ur scrolling threw the menu


    so my question is, what do u think is the problem, is this bricked, or is it some other type of problem, i started to think it maybe bricked but i figured u wouldnt be able to hear any sounds if it was bricked,

    i tried holding home and left & Right trigger then turning it on

    Not bricked, the backlight fuse is blown. (This is on the PSP Mainboard)

    If you get a flashlight and look at the screen with it (while it's on) can you see anything displayed?
