    I have a very annyoing but not deep scratch in my psp's screen. It would be in the faceplate or something but not in the actual psp screen right? like theres the lcd screen and then in the faceplate theres another screen?

    Yes the faceplate is separate from the LCD itself.

    Yes, the faceplate has a plastic screen guard.

    You can replace the faceplate, but you might scratch the actual screen when doing this -- or at least, you will get dust in between the faceplate and the screen

    Use an air blower, or you may scratch the actual screen...

    Yeah that faceplate protects it, so the scratch is most likely on the faceplate not the screen. Unless it's deep

    if i get a 1000 or 3000 face plate will it work on my 2000 psp?

    EDIT-- Actutly i realized that the 3000 has a mic spot but what about a 1000 face plate on a 2000 psp?

    can someone link me to a good guide for a full shell replacement guide
    ive found this shell http://www.taobaodao.com/goods-879.html but cant find a white faceplate for a psp 2000 and i think a full shell replacement might be better anyway. also ive heard that its easy to break your mobo while trying to do a full shell replacement, is that true?

    A full shell replacement is significantly more difficult than a faceplate replacement. I wouldn't recommend it unless you know what you're doing.

    because you have to gut the whole psp instead of removing 6 screws
