I tried PSP pixel restore, flashing the psp, and I'm so close to chucking the hunk of plastic at a wall. I just called Sony for an exchange and they said it will cost me $112 to fix the thing. I'm a (currently) jobless highschool student who paid the full cost out of my own pocket...and I refuse to pay half its cost for repairs. The guy from Sony said the warranty has expired aparently since I accidently dropped the psp on the ground. Isn't the warranty supposed to cover those things? It's not like I purposely dropped it on the ground...and it even landed screen up. The screen remains uncracked, in perfect physical condition, yet has that blue line and aparently I have to pay to fix it. I wonder if it's possible for me to call and speak with another person who doesn't know I dropped it on the ground...but he got my phone number, e-mail, etc and said the call is recorded. If I'm screwed, just tell me straight up so I can start asking people for money. I'm begging for any other alternative to fixing this darn thing!!!
