My psone screen is comepletely not working! help!

If you're making a portable you probably need something to watch it on. (Unless you want to guess what's happening in the game, but I wouldn't advise that) Anyway, this forum is your "Hacking a pocket TV/screen" one-stop solution. Share your experiences and knowledge here.

Check your wires to the screen, keeping a close watch on polarity. make sure that you've got the video hooked up too :P
I've blown lots of these screens. Just a fact of life. Modding is not easy and death will abound. I've heard that a user has gone through tens of Gamecubes before getting the hang of wiring properly.

I actually took it apart now and it has an opposite problem. LOL. Screen works, but backlight is out. The inverter connections have been lifted and it looks like it cracked.

I guess I have to find a replacement or can I get around this?

I thought there were issues with brightness? Or am I mistaken?
