    Double check all of your ribbon cables....they can be a bit tricky. Make sure that they all are making a good connection and the lock it tight.

    Good luck.

    I have never taken a PSP apart, but I have worked on some smaller electronics before and know the tendancy of the ribbon cables to give people trouble. I would go through everything that you took apart and disconnect it and reconnect it. I know its a hassle, but its better than buying a new PSP.

    try changing the firmware. mite be something missing on your new mobo.
    also, check the power switch board for any scratches.

    and, if you use for example a small screwdriver to lift any of the boards out, check around there for any issues.

    i had that prob when i was putting leds in. i thought id blew it up. found out later it was the ribbon that plugs into the power board. it had cracked along the fold.
    if you broke anything major youd of prob noticed then. i reckon it will just be somet daft. prob take a while to work out what though. lol

    Glad you got it sorted!

    I have seen you help a ton of people with their PSP, so I'm glad I was able to return the favor.
