The boy was at home sick today.  The cat kicked his mobile phone and mate's PSP off the desk and onto the floor.  The phone got wet, the boy kicked the cat off the desk, the cat managed to drop a chair on the psp.  Cracked screen, which had signs of damage on it before but was still useable.  Omnitech said over the phone that it would cost $180 to replace the lcd, but there would be a wait on the part.  Do I buy off trademe or cut my losses and buy brand new?  Price spy has the PSP as $252 at Dick Smith, second lowest price.  (Because they are close by.)  Is that all I need to replace?

Claim under house content insurance. But if DSE has it cheaper than the premium you'd be paying (or for repair) then just get a new one.

If you are confident of doing it yourself then this is an option

Fixtronics are the only authorised repair agent for Sony Playstation products in NZ.

Give them a ring and see what they quote you?

Dick Smith's is actually $295, the nice man behind the counter said it hasn't been the $245 for three months. Was he pulling my leg? Hubby could fix the screen, he used to do Nokias (5110s mostly) back in Aussie... The contacts and full screens. Was a good money maker for us! I will have a look at both options you have given me. Thanks. Any more suggestions welcome... The only thing I am concerned about concerning a straight out lcd fix is that there may be internal damage.  We have decided not to claim a minor prang on insurance, I haven't asked what the premium is, but I have had a few minor claims and don't want to bump up the premium. Won't hurt to ask!Wink

FWIW - Trademe has a few.  A lot more expensive...  Now, is the one I am concerned about fat or slim?  How do I tell without visiting an electronics store and appearing ignorant, even if that's what I am?
