The fuse for my backlight is out, where is it?

Couple weeks back while playing my screen just went out in the middle of the game, still plays, sound works and everything, but no picture. It's not under warranty but when holding a flashlight to the screen you can still see the picture. Took it apart to try and solder the fuse but I can't find the fuse, anybody know where it is?? Or somewhere that has a schematic or picture to show me what to look for?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Did you open it back up and take a look at the fuses? Look for the on with FD on it that is the one for the backlight. Use the PSP as a guide http://www.llamma.com/PSP/repair/PSP_fus...

Has anyone confirmed that the fuse with the "F" label is in fact that correct fuse and if it will actually fix the problem if bridged?

by

johnathan, this question hasn't been visited for a year. it is probably better if you ask your own question by using this link http://www.ifixit.com/Answers/Ask/PSP+Go

The russian pic says on the bottom left that this is indeed the fuse that links to the backlight, however it does not indicate any values of that very tiny surface mount

by

Jonathon, you never want to bridge over a fuse. The fuse blew for a reason. It gave its life to protect your backlighting from an unknown problem that caused a surge. Had that surge made it past the fuse, it likely would have destroyed the whole backlighting. You'll want to replace it. Not short around it.
