NEW PSP 3000? White Border around outer edge of screen? Defect? Moisture damage?

13 replies 1394 views Edited Dec 27, 2009

Got a brand new psp 3000 there is a white border that looks something like this 

 

http://img694.imageshack.us/i/pspq.jpg/ It is very small but it goes from that line to the outer edges and u can only notice it when dark colors are present....what could this be ? not a dead pixel and i looked at water damage pics and didnt look like that really.... is it the backlight in the psp showing up? what is it

 

 

also it is very even and looks like its MEANT to be there....... its perfect straight lines with rounded edges on all four corners.. so water damage seems kind of far fetched

It looks a bit unclear to say,... are you able to magnify the image a bit so it shows a bit more detail ? By the welcome to the PSP forums ...

Take it back for an exchange. None of my 3000's have screens that do that. It doesn't look right.

Like Geekgod said, it does't look like it should.  I would return it... Youre better off safe then sorry...

t looks to me as you said before,  the back lighting.  I would take it back and get it changed. I just got the AC bundle and i don't see any of that on mine.

Exchange it if you can. But good luck. I literally had to go through 12 exchanges to get one without this problem

 

And it's certainly a defect. My PSP 1000 did not have this, and all the 3000's I've exchanged had this problem but they all had different patterns. 12th time did it.

 

ALSO: If you do exchange it, specifically ask for models that were manufactured after October. I've had only a couple of the 12 exchanges I've done that were manufactured in 9-x-2009 and both had terrible blurring in high speed movement (like XMB). The ones made in 10-x-2009 didn't have this problem.
