Just won this on ebay.... wonder whats wrong with it.....

Item Number: 280277238051

Not much in the description saying about the fault... might just be lack of charge because he listed it with no charger.... might be bricked.... (badly flashed)

Might be completely bust mobo....

I decided that even if it were a very bad one, I could still either sell it back on ebay or sell the parts...

Do you reckon it was a decent price?

I'll update the thread once I have recieved wish me luck..

Probably water damage or something.
If it was just the batterys fault then he would have just said that to get a better price.

Loking at the description(or lack thereof) it could be absolutely anything.

It's a good price though.

Screen looks fine, infact the whole PSP looks fine....

I managed to snipe it right at the end (I was initially wanting to pay £25 inc P&P), did it in the last 10seconds lol worked quite well that technique.

Tim

Description is **** to be honest.
You will just have to wait and see if it works once you have a charger for it.

I hope he's sending it 1st class delivery...

Tim

Yep, description doesnt say much about it at all...they could have left it in a bath full of water for days for all we know..lol...could be anything wrong with it.:-D

On a lighter note, if its somethin daft thats wrong with it or simple to fix then your quids in!

I Hope It Works Fine When You Charge It And It Was His Charger:-d

Fingers crossed for you! let us know!

Doesn't really say much about it, hope it's ok

Recieved it today, with a charger It will make the power led turn orange but it won't turn on..

with the charger out it won't turn on.... (or any leds...)

some of the buttons seem a bit stiff and the umd drive appears to be stuck/broken..

Still, gonna go find a screwdriver and see what can be done to do it maybe something is shorting etc...

tim

(or the power switch is broken lol)

Gar.. think I just cracked the screen in the right corner... hope it isn't too bad (I tipped the PSP upside down and must've applied some pressure to it......
lol

Tim

nope and nope.

you just say it's a slim and lite, replace first two letters of the serial with HB, and if you provide a HOME LANDLINE number then you dont need a reciept.:thumbsup::whistling:

Lol, do you feel gutted Tim?

How much are replacement screens?

Whack a new screen in a 4GB memory card from deal extreme, upgrade the firmware and knock that out on E-bay for about £80, there should be a good bit of profit in that :thumbsup:

Under £20 I think, It came with a high speed sony 1gb card - is that worth anything lol? (seems to be a fake with the magicgae test...

How do you check whether it is genuine or not also?

TIm

Edit: think it also needs a new battery too

I exchanged a slim and lite about two weeks ago, and they never asked about a receipt.
