    DO NOT COME MOANING TO ME IF U fusk UP UR PSP. I ACCEPT NO RESPONABLITY IF U DAMAGE UR PSP.

    HERES WHAT YOU NEED
    No.1
    A Phillips Head Ph000 Screwdriver

    A Replacement LCD SCREEN (You can get one off ebay for as little as 10 euros)


    STEPS

    STEP.1

    GROUND urself before u take off the faceplate.

    P.S. Try not to strip the screws. but if u have stripped a screw and can no longer use it. u can find replacments here http://powergamingparts.com/psp-screw-kit.html.
    if u need help removing a stripped screw these topics http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=70774 http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=69967 They may have a couple of suggestions


    STEP.2
    REMOVING THE CONTROL BUTTONS STRIP
    To remove the control buttons strip you must use a flat head screwdriver to pry the control buttons away from the LCD metal casing. The best way to get it off is to pry it off from the sides.
    [​IMG]
    when u have pryed the button strip off you must then remove the cable connecting it to the psp.
    you can do this by pulling the brown latch towards the yellow ac power connector as shown in the picture below.
    [​IMG]
    after u have the latch pulled up the cable will then be free to pull out.

    STEP.3
    REMOVING THE METAL CASE HOLDING THE LCD.
    to remove the lcd case u must slide a flat head screwdriver down the side of the case at the points shown in the picture below then u can easy pry it up.
    [​IMG]
    when u have pryed the case up please ly it face front down because it is still connected to the PSP through cables.
    These cables can be easily removed by using your nail to pull up the black latches in the direction show in the pictures below. the big cable in the pictue below is for the LCD screen and the small cable in the other picture is for the LCD BACKLIGHT.

    STEP.4
    REMOVING THE METAL CASE AROUND THE BACKLIGHT AND LCD
    to remove the metal case all you have to do is to pry it apart at the pionts shown in the picture below.
    [​IMG]
    sometimes it may be stuck by adhesive so just keep pulling gently untill you have it completely away from the LCD and BACKLIGHT.

    STEP.5
    REMOVING THE LCD FROM THE BACKLIGHT(Skip this if you have bought a backlight and lcd. You only have to do this if you only have bought a new LCD)
    Yo can do this eaily by inserting a small flathead screwdriver at the point shown in the picture below. and then prying up the LCD.
    [​IMG]
    The is usally stuck to the LCD so go very slowly when prying them apart.

    Hi AlanKeire,

    great how-to. Unfortunately while removing the lcd-screen, the black clasp holding the wide lcd-cable snapped in half and thus the wide cable isn't held in place on the motherboard properly.

    Does anyone have a tip?

    yeah fultonla, I don't think that tape would be very effective. I'll probably try crazy glue though only as a last resort.
