    After some unfortunate events, the PSP was hit on the floor twice. It is now broken and I am now trying to find out what is wrong with it.

    Physically, the only thing that happened is that the front case is shifted forwards.
    When I turn on the power, the green light goes on. Nothing else goes on. No whirring sound.

    It's a PSP-2000, and I have no idea what to do with it. Do you guys have any idea on what is wrong with it?

    It's dead. There's not much you can do for it. You should have got a PSP-1000 like I did.

    Do any of the other lights come on? Do you see it checking for the memory stick, etc? It could be a number of things like the backlight cable dislodging.

    The memory stick light did go on, right before the power went off.

    I opened it up and everything was still connected. The top and bottom screws on the outside are useless though.

    Okay, I'm going to try to fix it myself, except I need reference pictures. First I have to find out the problem before doing anything.

    Anyone have know pictures for the inside of a PSP-2000?
