    I have a psp and the screen got cracked. I was wondering , I was planning to buy a psp lcd screen from ebay , my question was , do I need to buy the back light or is that a waste of money ? Also , is it really that hard to do , I've seen videos on youtube and it seems really easy , I'm not a stupid person and I know what I am doing , I work with computers often so I'm not a stupid psp person. Thanks

    If your backlight is still working, then you won't need the ones with the backlight installed already. LCD installation is very simple, just follow the guides online.

    whoa, attaching back light to the screen is not as easy as it sounds. look for one with backlight attached to make your life much easier. (they dont cost that much). When attaching the lcd, just make sure that you handle the cable connector gently.

    I ended up opening my PSP and I just purchased a screen from Ebay. The screen cost me $45.35 including insurance. The One I purchased came with a backlight. Thanks for all your help. I can't wait for the screen to come. When I install it, I'll be sure to give you guys a heads up and tell you what happens.

    Sounds like your backlight isn't working. I would contact the seller see to it you get a exchange/refund.

    Agree w/ blackvamp, your problem should be the backlight, not connections.
