    Hey guys, recently i bought an used blue Psp 2001 from an online site in my country (somewhat like ebay), and it works perfectly fine, but! sometimes when I press the O (circle) button a little bit hard, the screen loses brigthness and red vertical lines appears all around the screen, sometimes when I press it a little bit more hard the screen goes somewhat white and then goes back to normal. Also note that sometimes when I shake the console the vertical lines can appear and the screen has 2 dead pixels.

    What do you guys think? could it be a loose conection on the ribbon cable.. or is the screen just dying on me? Could a screen replacement fix this problem? thx for your time reading this.

    Buy a replacement screen from ebay, it works on 2000/2001. From my experience. I could not get the replacement screen to work on a 1000 series (Original Fat PSP). Just make sure the small ribbon is pushed all the way in, if you have to pop off the small white tab, do so with a thick threading needle and then just pop it back on top even if you break one of the little sides.

    I also replaced the power switch with one from ebay, so I can verify that method works also for a 2000/2001 psp (slim version).
