View Full Version : Motherboard Prob

December 2nd, 2006, 06:53
OK, I took my psp apart to replace my memory card cover (damn dog :mad:). I got it apart ok but putting it back to gather I broke the littler "plugin" for the screen. I was curious if there any fix besides buying a whole new motherboard? And for those of of you who don't know what I'm talking about heres a photo.

It broke into about 7 pieces and the only piece I found was the little black would-be flipper switch.

Nothing more man...you need a new motherboard. That's it. Wait...scratch that, you need it to be homebrew capable...so a non TA-082 with firmware 2.71 or below.:)

The smaller plug you have circled is the backlight connector for the screen. The system will still work if you put it back together however without a backlight the screen will be very very dark.

Other than soldering each individual pin to the mainboard the onlt solution is to buy a replacement board. Ebay is your best bet for that.
